Learn Corel Painter 2015 Basics : when you, of course painter you will be created with the welcome screen dressed three times of a birth here, the first is inspired. Here you can see the world than by artist. Using Corel Painter, you can click on the refresh button to see the next book on the lower left corner. The name off the artist is strong, and on the lower right size, the hyperlink to the website is shown. You can click the link to go to the artist's website. The second tab is created in here. You can create new image and other things we will talk about later. The turn and the final there is sure and learned up. You can select if you want Americans being shown on start up or not. Let's close this window for now. If you want to see the welcome screen again and you can go to the help menu, then click on the welcome and there it is easy. Now let's see. To create in here, you can create new images to start from scratch are open and existing image to start from our opener reason document you have worked on you can also to stamp its to start. And then there are books based precepts you can choose from way we learn more about them in a later movie. Other dudes and options can be found in the menu bar. This is toolbar on these air ballots with banners with different dudes. 6. Working with files : you can start by creating a new image from welcome screen performer five minutes or you can open a recent fight or start from attempting. Let's create a new image, said the name for the image. Then select a canvas preset or customized the canvas size yourself for painting. I like to set the restoration to 300 pixels. Parents click OK, you can close the current image by going to fire menu and then flicked close are by using the defaults rocker controlled of you, That's it on to the next movie. 7. Navigation : If you're looking for a tool or a function but can find it, then it's probably in the menu bar. The best way to get familiar with the interface and navigating it is by just looking everybody and using every tool. Just play with them. You will make errors and mess of things, but this is the best way I know to learn a software. While painting being familiar with the navigation will make it easier to work with painters . Presume into the canvas. For painting, you can go to window menu Anglican Zuman. Click on Drew Moctezuma. You can also use shortcut keys to do that press control, plus together to zoom into the canvas and control minus together to zoom out. You can also use girl well off your mouth. Who's woman are out? I only have Microsoft windows as up now, so I only know shortcut months for painter on Windows. What I suppose instead of control, you can press command in all shortcuts you consume to fit the canvass or make it the actual size of canvas. Move the canvas. You can hold space bar and drag with the most. You can use thes navigation methods by painting. Make things easier. You can zoom and pan the canvas well, painting to be accurate or just being efficient. Let's not talk about the workspaces with three left in the previous movie Goto Window menu and then click workspaces to access more options. From here, you can create a new workspace off like your own creative workspace. More workspace presets are available in the welcome window in the Help Man. Here.

We will be working in the photo artworks face. Oh, no, let's set the workspace to before. 8. Brushes : Let's create a new image. Now It's like the brush tool from the toolbar oppressed a big key on your keyboard. To select the best tool, you will be able to see the breast fans like on the fresh I cant in there. The first thing you will see is the recent brushes that you have selected down there. Two columns, the Left columnist or brush categories. There are many different breast categories in court. Painter. Currently, I have painted elevenses Brush library open on the right column. The Brush Raelians are short. These variants are based on the brush cattle you have selected. There are over 700 brush radiance available in coral paying 30,015 and each one is unique in its behaviour and the results they produce. 9. Playing with Brushes : to get familiar with brushes. The best way is to use them. Select different, breath millions in different breast categories and just have fun playing with them. This will help you learn more about the behavior off different brushes and, you know, express to use to produce a specific effect. Been painting when working with watercolor breast statically. When you paint on the canvas, it will first create a new watercolor Leo and then paying the stroke on that layer automatic. The watercolor brushes do not work on other leaders except the specialist for watercolors and other Russian. Except watercolors don't work on these special years, either. Let's delete all watercolor layers now. 10. Brush Controls : Let's start with the first brush in the relics category. The first breath is captured vessel. You can get very different results even with a single breath play. And just by treating the breast controls, the first option is too recent to selected restoration. Let's start by criticizing the brush, which you will be doing very often by painting. Then there is the brash audacity Slater thing. This controls how much off bakes the brush is. Lets reset the brush again. Then there is the re situations crew, the re saturation and rose. How much color is on the brush and will the brush just apply the color? Or pick a circulars from the canvas and miss them as well? Let's select rust color from the color panel and secretary saturation full. Now the Russian only applies this selective color, but when I said three saturation at low value, it's apply some of the selective color but also fix and applies other colors on the canvas with the brush touches, let's clear the candles and apply some feathers. When I said they re situation to zero consent, then the breath doesn't apply any of the color that you have selected but only smudges of colors. It comes in contact with Theun . There's a great control, the bleak and rules changes. How much treaty is as off this troop when bleed is that full? The edge of the stroke is painted the most, and then and 0%. The edge is very sharp. Let's clear up the last oxen shown in the bar for this very in its troop today. For this one, I just like you. See what disruption does by attending the values and you will understand what it does so stroked. It controls how much tea tree the stroke will be. Let me mention again that he settings very with ease. Brush Brilliant. I cannot talk both each way in settings, but these are the main months. You need to know about more taking toe the brush way and can be done by clicking the gear icon in the toolbar. I will not be talking about the settings in this coast since they are beyond the school. What the scores. But I will teach about these in an advanced course on Coral Pinto 11. Color : swooping color panel goto window menu and down to color panels and click on color. You can also use this shortcut key combination controlled. One. Let's pop out dependent in descending triangle, you can select the value and saturation off the color, and the outer ring is where you can select that you. The other way to select the color is by using a just peace. Laters. The hearings has complete to 56 values, including zero and Mannion put a value using I drove three ways. It is the same man done by others, but each matter has its own use, like using the ring. You can Celeste of you usually and by using slider or the input box, you can be accurate with the values you bought. 12. Selections : selection rules come in very handy when you need to be precise and add alterations to specify it. Part often image. Lets say that I'm going to create a rectangle. One is that I can simply use any brush and make it with my hand gestures. All right can enable straight line strokes. And there will be is that I just like the rectangular selection toe and make a selection on the canvas and paint in it. To make a perfect rectangle. You can find more controls in select menu. Pledged the reception by clicking on Dean. None are Bashar combination control these. You can re select the previous election by clicking on the re select. Then word selection. Auction inverts the current selection by selecting everything which we re selection did not select and removing the selected bunch. Let's pain some green in him. Now let's learn more about this election's Let's like the less oh selection to know, to make a selection just like the area you want and join the start and end points Now, activists election. We've shift and slept. The other idea to step back from this election full of kids and select the area you want to remove from the selection. Let's like this pink rectangle do that better. I will use the polygonal lasso tool. Let's Ah, a triangle at the top of the rectangle. Now let's look at the magic Mourn, selection boot. This tool slept all the area with same color. There you click with the Vontobel. Same shortcut gives to add and subtract selection work with they want to. We're shift key to act and RG to subtract. At last there is a selection register.

A new Leo for smiling face you can hide earlier by clicking on the I button on the left off the layer name. Now let's create a new layer. Fine every face. Okay, let's lead the angry face now. Now let's have a look at composer My 30 in coral Painter. There many composite filters and are easy to use for. To understand what they do, you have to see them in action. Let's were two separate layers and paid one over. The other for composite figure does is that it works with colors on separate layers when the overlap and the future has a different result. No at the bottom of the rear panel there. Other options available. The Lyrica months. Manu has four options. The first is to grow two or more layers. You can rename the group by double clicking on the name for your convenience. The second option is toe on group. The group players grouping similar layers is a good practice to keep the layer banner clean and well structured. It's the drop functions, as the name suggests props earlier onto the layer beneath it and is overlapping on the layer beneath. When you select two or more years, then you can collapse them into one year and then flew B collapse in the order the layers were from up.
