    the brushes are cool, but painter does have better brush control than photoshop, but painter's interface is hard to get around. photoshop is much more spacey. but they say "specifically built for wacom tablets" is actually bullshit...the pressure sensitivity doesn't work totally well wiht the brushes, you know what i mean...
    from thin line to thick bold line, how come opencanvas can do that so well and photoshop doesn't seem to support it thoruoghly. especially the eraser and brush swap thing that opencanvas and painter has. where's that? so yeah, photoshop is still missing ALOT of things...geez, i barely see any changes with each version Adobe releases... they focus too much on the filter shit, they need to work on the brushes more and give more features and control.

    the main problem with photoshop vs. painter is that photoshop is not a paint program and painter is. Photoshop is a graphic design program. I think it's astounding and marvelous that people are able to do what they do with it (like Matt Dixon), because I tried. I had ps before painter and I just could *not* get it to sing.

    oh, i've gotten around that, lol i've been using PS since 6th grade
    so yeah, i'm pretty much a master wiht that program. painter is just new to me and i hardly ever use it...sadly too many choices of brushes and mediums in painter....

    Yeah, I've been using PS since PS2, so it's not like I can't find my way around the program. It's just counter-intuitive for me in terms of creating artwork or painting.

    I've been using painter for over a year now, and I'm *still* finding new stuff I can do with it. What I ended up doing was literally going through brush by brush and playing with it till I found something that seemed like it would work. I also set aside a little bit of time to just continue to play with it every day.

    I freely admit that the brush selection is a bit daunting. But I'd start out with something that you are familiar with (say, acrylics, or oils, or even watercolor) and build from there.

    Photoshop version 7 and up gives you almost as good of brush customization as most of the Painter brushes. Combined with Layer styles, I can duplicate chalk, crayon, and occasionally watercolor effects that match, and sometimes even surpass my Painter brushes, with MUCH easier manipulation of other aspects, such as default B&W colors by hitting 'D', easy brush size changing by right clicking, and fabulously easy angle and spacing adjustments under the brush properties.
    In Painter, you have to jump through too damn many hoops to make changes.

    My biggest problem with Painter is that the color space often doesn't play well with Photoshop.

    In 7 or CS, go to edit > keyboard shortcuts to see / customise the hotkeys ( alt+shift+ctrl+K ) - I can't remember for the earlier versions, but a quick stab of the F1 key and a skim through the help contents should help.

    I'm surprised a 'master wiht that program' has to ask...

    Hey Matt,

    Actually I'm not that surprised, if he learned photoshop the way I did - using the mouse. To this day, keyboard short cuts don't even occur to me, even in painter, with the exception of the eye dropper, or "ctrl-z" for undo. Every thing else is done on screen

    i agree, i learned photoshop by just messing with everything and not knowing what the hell i i'm doing until i found out what everything does. yeah i learned it the slow way...you can get a tutorial book and become a master in about a week.

    so far, in one of the Gnomon DVDs i saw feng was using photoshop in "expert mode" or he hit a hot key and it hides everything, so he can work at his art alot easeir without having all that shit in the way. hmm, is there a way to do that in painter?
