I started with PS and switched to painter for painting a few years ago
still miss PS stability at times, but I hate the way photoshop responds to pen pressure so much, painting there feels really erratic.
That being sad, some brushes in recent painter versions (10 and onwards) don't really feel and work as good as they used to.
If this trend continues, I'll just stick with whatever painter version fits me best and will use PS more extensively for stuff like up-resing, colour correction, etc.
> I would never use Photoshop in preference to Painter, but wondered if it could offer something in a Painter artist's workflow beyond the post-production touch ups.
well the only thing PS can really offer for me is layer mode for brushes, that have an iffy implementation in painter;
I'd like painter to support cmyk files (and rgb-16 probably too), and some extra layer modes like colour dodge;
PS also has "sample current layer" option for eye-dropper since cs4, I believe - extremely useful and awesome feature, that doesn't work as good for me since I hate PS brush response.
why painter still doesn't have it in v. 12 is still a question, tho.
on the fourth day of glitchmas my painter™ gave to me
four random crashes, three broken brushes, two system hangups & one corrupted workspace
