    Painter 12 nearly here? Now here since May 11(10th) 2011

    Reading through the new ImagineFX (issue 69) and saw this...

    Next month...Andrew Jones puts Painter 12 through it's paces

    and

    Inside Painter 12: The new tools and features that'll make your art pop.

    Issue 70 goes on sale 4th May, so by my (normally wrong) reasoning, we should be seeing Painter 12 any time now :-)

    Corel had a discount campaign for p. 11 spanning until end of April (can't see it on corel.com now though), so I assume it's coming either late in this month or early in May

    a few week early would be nice though. New tools and features, like, omg, totally - I hope 2000 % increased perfomance is on that list too.

    Corel has been trying to off Painter 11 at discount prices since 4 months after it's official release, nothing new there. They already knew they were wrong for asking retail for what should have been a Painter X patch instead. I look forward to Painter 12 though, I cannot express enough how I would love to see a version worthy of my dime. Please pleeeease PUHLEEEEZ give us what we need. On the other hand, I'm hoping the next version of Photoshop will have an evolved natural media engine that can compete also just in case Corel drops the ball. My budget for software upgrades this year will be $5K across all programs, I need every last investment to hit home.

    I wouldn't get too excited. A similar thing happened when ArtRage 3 was in development. ImagineFX advertised that Nick Harris would be introducing ArtRage 3's new features 'Next Month' but neither the feature nor ArtRage 3 appeared for about another 6 months.

    I truly hope Painter 12 is getting better at the overall flow of painting and drawing. The usability in the current and earlier versions have been so bad when compared to Photoshop. E.g. zooming in and out, and the fixed-size layer palette are so tiring when coming from using PS for a while. When I want to paint something I usually fire up Photoshop and use hard round brush with Wacom pen transparency. It's a bit sad that one brush wins they countless brushes of Painter in usability.

    But it must be said that of course Painter's brushes beat PS in quality. And I'll probably buy Painter 12 at some point anyway

    Painter 12 just needs one new descriptor preceding its name to escape the troubled past: Adobe.

    But alas, unlike Flash which was a growing and insurmountable obstacle to Adobe's web aspirations, Painter doesn't eclipse Photoshop the same way Flash pwned whatever alternative Adobe was pushing before they bought out Macromedia.

    You would think that they'd be already advertising it, if it was coming out this year...?

    Nope, they don't do any sort of promo before launch dates are announced, at least with painter 11.
    If you don't count Android's participation in beta work and imagine fx announce as advertising.

    My fear is if Adobe acquires painter it would mean the end of the program, they would absorb what they want and let the title die.

    When Adobe acquired macromedia, Freehand was left to wither in favor of their vector program. Freehand's pen tool was superior to illustrator in many ways and a genuine joy to use.

    Illustrator had far better rendering options and was easily the more often used program.

    What Painter needs is dedicated development support. They would definitely get that from Adobe, if they committed to keeping the program.

    Indeed, and also counter intuitive. Let's hope they fix the past bugs and bring more improved stability.

    It's funny how digitally that's the "default" opacity/pen with many programs. Some ways it works against I how work traditionally. Don't get me wrong I do like using that pen too in digital paintings, but sometimes I find certain brushes in Painter faster with certain ways I work.
