Your Questions About Corel Painter 12

David asks…

Corel Painter?

Is this software all that it says it is? Does it do a good job?

Is the WACOM INTUOS3 9 X 12 GRAPHIC TABLET a good buy?

Thanks

Timo answers:

Wacom tablets are good products. I have used them for many years with PhotoShop.

I have no experience with Corel Painter, no doubt it will do all it says it does, but the examples they show are being done by professionals with lots of experience that get paid lots of money to create the images just to show off all the bling.

Timo answers:

Wacoms are always good buys. The size depends on what you will be using it for but I always recommand people to buy from wacom.
I dont use Corel so cant help you on that.

Sandy asks…

My computer’s acting weird?

Do I have a potential virus? If so, how do I fix it? Here are the computer’s symptoms:

~frozen screens, though other windows still function
~difficulty running more than three applications at a time
~files that appear to be “zipped” or “corrupted” and do not open
~extreme difficulty opening up my documents
~frequent error messages
~my files appear to be unresponsive and, though they have never been deleted, claim to say that they were
~my computer’s virus scanner continually says that nothing’s wrong even as the computer worsens

Some things that I downloaded were a “Wild Words” font, PhotoFiltre (english), Manga Studio 4.0, Corel Painter, PhotoImpact 12, and some other applications. Most of them came from CDs that I used to install a drawing tablet. I also download the newest versions of Mozilla Firefox when I am told to.

Can you please tell me how to fix up my computer? I have a LOT of information on there that cannot be replaced!

Timo answers:

This is probably a virus with a rootkit on your computer hiding the virus from your anti-virus program. Here’s some suggestions. Since your computer may be severely infected, you should take some extra safety measures.

1. Reboot your computer into Safe Mode with Networking by pressing F8 while your computer is loading, and then selecting Safe Mode with Networking when prompted.

2. Once loaded, go to http://www.malwarebytes.org and install the free version of malwarebytes.

3. Once installed, update the program to the latest database.

4. Reboot your computer into Safe Mode, by pressing F8 while it is loading, and selecting Safe Mode when prompted.

5. Once loaded, open Malwarebytes, and run a quick scan. Quarantine any threats it finds.

6. Run a full scan and quarantine any threats it finds.

7. Reboot your computer into it’s regular mode. You do not need to press F8.

8. Repeat steps 5 and 6.

Hope this helps!

Timo answers:

ArtRage is quite good, from experience, and it offers a free trial if you want to see what the product is like. Unlike Painter, however, it doesn’t provide a more digital painting experience, but rather tries to recreate physical, traditional mediums in a digital form. It provides a simple, ergonomically designed layout, and includes features such as Glitter and Stencils as well as Pencil and Oil Paints.

I would recommend it for your daughter, as I have used it and found it to be quite good, though Photoshop and painter are my programs of choice. The program varies from between $20 to $80 depending on what features you want to include (if you want to upgrade from the free starter edition), but overall that is much cheaper than most other, more popular programs.
