    Cool Where to download brushes?

    Hi! I'm used to being able to download cool brushes for photoshop, but am having a hard time locating anywhere online to download painter x brushes. Photoshop has those cool brushes that are anything from coffee stains, galaxies, or paper effects. Does the same thing exist for Painter? I'm sure it's there, i'm just not finding it! Please share

    Try Deviantart, I used to always find decent brushes there, or the painterfactory.com, might be some up there as well. Also check out the downloadable workshops at imaginefx.com, depending on the tutorial you can find painter brushes with the downloads or in the forum area. Keep in mind tho that painter is for those that like to paint or work with a more traditional aproach whereas photoshop is not. If you want to use the brushes created for photohop in painter try the freeware abrviewer and import the brush images into painter and create a new custom brush. Take care

    A quick search turned up these two for starters. There are plenty more I'm sure.

    Thanks guys. I've looked at Deviant before but they didn't seem to have alot of painter x brushes, more painter XI and I'm not sure if they're compatable.
    -Joe, I found that page using google search too, but thanks. Not exactly what I wanted however. I'll probably have to fininsh what I'm doing in painter and then import it into photoshop for the rest.

    Thanks!

    Painter IX or 9 brushes will work in Painter versions 9 and above. It generally isn't backwards compatible. Meaning that brushes in newer versions of Painter won't work in older ones.

    Hi,

    We can make custom Captured Dab brush variants in Corel Painter, This means the brush dab shape and opacity is based on an image.

    The image can be anything you want.

    Read the instructions in Painter's Help Topics:

    Painter X Help > Help Topics > Contents tab > Customizing Brushes > Managing Custom Brushes

    On the right panel, click the link named Capturing Brush Dabs.


    Important info that may not be mentioned in Help Topics:

    Tip One

    1. Before you begin the process of creating a Captured Dab brush variant, select any brush variant that comes close to behaving the way you want (you'll be able to adjust the settings later to fine tune it), then go to the Brush Selector menu and choose Save Variant to save it as a custom brush variant with a unique and descriptive name.

    2. Restore the original brush variant to its default state.

    3. Select the custom brush variant you just saved, then procede with the steps to create your custom Captured Dab variant.

    4. Immediately after using the Capture Dab command, save your custom brush variant again, with the same name. Otherwise, you'll loose your dab-capturing work then need to do it all over again. (After any changes made to the custom brush variant, save it again with the same name... unless, of course, you want to save more than one based on the same Captured Dab image. Sometimes I end up with several, each a bit different in the way they behave.)


    Tip Two

    When you make the "square" selection around the image you'll be using, don't hold down the Shift key as Painter will think you want to add to an existing selection and the Brush Selector menu command, Capture Dab will be greyed out. Instead just make a square-ish selection around the image.

    Hi,

    You're welcome!

    Please read my previous message again. Reading it over, I realized Tip One needed a Step 4.



    You'll love the wonderful variety of custom brush variants we can create and Captured Dab variants just add to the fun.
