    Painter 11 Color error

    Hey folks, I downloaded the trial of Painter 11 today, but theres a problem I'm having with the colors.
    I've tried painting with the entire spectrum, and all thats actually going on the canvas is a limited range of blues and purples.

    And certain brushes will do a sort of yellow multiply layer that covers everything and can't be undone

    Anyone know how to solve this?

    I just figured out that its just a display issue and that the true colors are there, (it correctly printed), and color picking gets the true color, but on canvas it just shows blue tones.

    Still no leads on solving this problem.

    Have you checked the Colour Management settings?

    One thing you can try is to make sure your screen colors are set to 24 bit or higher.

    Do this with Painter 11 closed, then relaunch.

    Good luck!

    Already set. (On Mac it's set to "millions" under system color).

    But I just opened up a new file, and it works, but only when I have a default template set. Maybe its a trial thing

    Thank you all for trying to help me out!



    Edit: I've figured it out. I just open up a default template, which uses colors as normal, and change its size as need be
