I'm brand new to this forum and I saw this section about Painter. I was wondering if someone had the same problem I have with my painter XI.
I'm not too good in English, I'll put a picture of what I'm talking about in the post.
So, when I put colour with painter on a picture I scan, I get really weird and ugly result. Like if the colour was really poor pixel or really saturate. And when I check the artwork with Photoshop CS4... all seem alright.... Someone have an explanation for me?
Thank for taking the time to read this, waiting for an answer..
Sounds like colour management to me. In Painter, on the top righthand side of the document window there are four icons. One of them is the colour management on/off - it's either a square with four small vertical bands of colour, or it's black. Four strips of colour is 'on' and black is 'off'. Test by clicking this on and off and see if the colour changes. It's best to actually have colour management on, but you have to have the correct settings. Check what RGB settings you are using in PS colour management and then go into Painter and change it's colour management to the same thing. Look in Painters Help/help topics to find out how.
it can be also the antializing, painter doesnt use it so edges will look rough.
There are no such things as bad art, just tight deadlines.
