Hello there. I am new here...
I got a Intuos4 tablet, and I have some questions about the free softwares offered by wacom.
- Whats the difference between the Adobe Photoshop Elements 8 and the Adobe Photoshop CS5?
- Whats the difference between the Corel Painter Sketch Pad and the Corel Painter 11?
- Whats the difference between Autodesk SketchBook Express 2010 and Autodesk Autodesk SketchBook Pro?
I can only get two of them. I am thinking in Photoshop Elements 8 and Corel Painter Sketch Pad. I'll use those softwares for digital painting and concept art.
Or should I get the Autodesk SketchBook Express? I don't know. I use the Photoshop and the Corel painter, but never used the Sketcbook.
I will apreciate if someone help me.
(Sorry about the bad english, I am not american).
Elements is a really stripped down version of CS which is industry/professional software. You will lack ability to work with certain layer modes, how to adjust brushes etc...
Sketchpad and Painter are really different softwares, this is not a "stripped down" version as it was intended to be its contender for Sketchbook Pro. It can however save files in native Painter format to port into the actual Painter program.
Sketchbook Express lacks features in Pro brush adjustments for example.
Best though, is to try to google the software to see what each can do and its features.
From Autodesk site:
"SketchBook Express delivers a complete experience with SketchBook's patented UI, all the preset brushes, navigation and selection tools, rudimentary layers, and file output. Unlike SketchBook Pro, Express does not feature the Do-it-yourself custom brushes (including custom textures), full layer controls, symmetric brushing, guides, or the ability to customize the UI".
Thank you very much, Arshes. I didn't know the difference between them.
I'll look (again) for more examples and specifications.
