Painter

A full-featured paint program for Macintosh and Windows from Corel. Part of Corel's illustration and design line of products, Painter is the most sophisticated paint program on the market with an array of tool palettes that is simply remarkable. It can simulate natural painting styles, such as oil, watercolor and charcoal, on almost every kind of paper texture. Painter's packaging used to be as unique as the product... a paint can! In 2000, Corel acquired Painter from MetaCreations Corporation, Carpenteria, CA (formerly Fractal Design Corporation).
