Corel Painter Lite Editor's Review

Corel’s graphics and illustration tools have been perennial favorites with millions of graphic designers and layout artists worldwide. While CorelDraw graphic suite is the company’s most popular app, Painter has also succeeded in garnering considerable fan following since its launch. While Painter is a feature laden illustration app for simulating lifelike drawing and painting effects on digital canvas, its steep price tag deter moderate and casual users. To address this issue, Corel has launched Painter Lite, a mid level illustration app with majority of Painter’s features but with a more attractive price tag. It is suited for students and budding artists making foray into digital painting.

As of now, Corel Painter Lite is being offered in a few selected countries and you need to check specific website for its availability. The downloader size is 77 MB and installation is a simple procedure. It supports Windows 7 and 8, so no luck for those stuck with Windows XP. Its Hardware requirements are modest by present standard. It is also necessary to install Microsoft .NET Framework 4.0 to use this app.

Those who have used Painter will find the interface similar. The tool dockers can be removed and customized as per your usage needs. You will find familiar tools like eraser and color picker in its interface and the app workspace does not appear much cluttered.  It supports regular mouse but if you are serious about painting or want your digital artwork to look professional, use a stylus pressure tablet. Luckily, Painter Lite supports Wacom tablets and offers options for stylus calibration. The app supports a wide range of commonly used file formats including PNG, TIFF, JPG and even PSD.

The app comes with a number of preset paper surfaces to simulate natural drawing. The familiar Mixer of Painter is available here. Inclusion of Mirrored painting is a nice touch which aids in making perfectly symmetrical drawings. Another fun to use tool included in the app is Kaleidoscope tool.

The main appeal of Painter Lite lies in its huge repository of brushes. There are 97 brushes, which paves way for huge artistic painting possibilities, given the customization options that come with brush sets. You get watercolor brushes, airbrushes, markers and other types in this app. The Real Wet Oil brushes are however missing. It is a pity that Corel has dropped the useful Auto Painting feature from Painter Lite.

Paint Lite supports layers making it easier for users to trace manually over images. You can also experiment with brush strokes and background. However, it is nowhere as feature rich or powerful as layer in apps like Photoshop. Despite omission of a few brushes and features Painter Lite is by no means a tool meant only for amateurs. It is intuitive and does not have a steep learning curve. The integrated help section is quite adequate.

Positive Points:
•    Easy to use, low learning curve.
•    Plenty of brushes to simulate real life painting.
•    Support for wacom and stylus tablets.
•    Not much resource hungry.

Negative Points:
•    Layer system not much powerful.
•    Misses a few brushes in Painter.
•    Auto Painting feature dropped.

While Painter Lite does not come with all bells and whistles you get in its more expensive sibling from Corel’s stable, it should not be dismissed as a stripped down edition either. It does come with a vast array of brushes with customization options. The app costs a fraction of what Painter will cost you yet offers enough features and functionality. It is ideal for beginners to mid level users. When you master the app, it is possible to upgrade to the costlier sibling.

Rating: 2.5/5
