When Corel took stock of Corel Painter, the perennial go-to app for digital artistry, the company decided that for the 2019 version, it would concentrate not on flashy headlining new features, but on enhancing app interface and performance.
The new Painter now joins other visual creation and effects software by implementing a dark interface and pairing that with a complete app design overhaul. Painter 2019 also delivers speed boosts and features that simplify and amplify creative workflows. Oh, and there are 36 new brushes and a new brush category.
Compared with last year's upgrade, which showcased complex new brush and texture technologies, Corel's aim with Painter 2019 is more modest, but still solid.
