I have the deep desire to be an artist buy I CAN’T draw or paint but I recently learn that I can trace photos and images by using my beloved Wacom digital drawing pad and corel painter 12 digital painting software. Wacom makes the Best Artist Graphics Tablets.
See my time saving tips below.
I absolutely LOVE my new Wacom Digital Graphics Pad and Corel Painter 12 Download. I actually received a Free 90 Day Trial of the best painter software when I purchased my Wacom Intuos 5 Medium Graphics pad for computer. The drawings I was able to do and the painting I intend to do from photos is so exciting to me because I can barely draw a STICKMAN myself so I turn photo into sketch or trace images. You can see the rough illustration that my mother created and then I traced over it using my new Corel Painter 12 Free Download trial.
I do however wish I would have seen this bundle first to save a lot of money by purchasing both the Wacom Intuos 5 Medium along with the Corel Painter 12 Download instead of just the Wacom Intuos 5 Medium alone. I didn’t know how fantastic the Corel Painter 12 Download would be.
Choices when deciding to buy Wacom Intuos 5 Medium and or Corel Painter 12 Download.
1. Wacom Intuos digital graphics tablet alone Wacom Intuos5 Touch Medium Pen Tablet (PTH650)
This is what I did. You can read my extensive review of the Wacom Intuos 5 Medium here: Click Here to Read more on Wacom Digital Graphics Tablet
2. Corel Painter 12 Download is a great price here too. Here is the link for you to read reviews and see the current price for the Corel Painter 12 Download for PC : Painter 12 for PC [Download]
and here is the link for the Corel Painter 12 Download for Mac: Painter 12 for Mac [Download]
After EXTENSIVE research of the Wacom Intuos 5 medium sized graphics tablet for Mac and PC, I was very comfortable with purchasing the Wacom Intuos 5 Medium but I didn’t know how fantastic the Corel Painter 12 download is until I tried it with the Corel Painter 12 Free Download Trial for 90 Days. (or buy the Corel Painter 12 Software disc). Yes, hindsight is great but I knew I could try the Corel Painter 12 Free Download for 90 Days. Best Graphics Tablet for PC and MAC is the Wacom Intuos5 Touch Medium Pen Tablet (PTH650)
It is so tough surfing the web for Painter Software Tips and recommendations for the Best Painting Software. I recently purchased my first Digital Sketch Pad – Wacom Intuos 5 and I absolutely LOVE it.
I am not an Artist and sure not a Techy person. I would like to share a few tips in what I found to be the Best Digital Painting Software – Corel Painter 12 has awesome paint brushes and techniques to create artwork that a Non Artist like me can create.
For Example – Here is my 4th Digital Sketching on my Wacom Intuos 5 using Corel Painter Software. This is the sketch my mother drew for me and I was able to trace it and enhance it with my now favorite digital painting software, Corel Painter 12.
The BEFORE – Sketch Drawn by my Mother

“>” means Click
Command on Mac is the Same as Control on PC.
1. Open Corel Painter Digital Painting Software and Click “Create New Image”
You will see this Box.
Image Name: Name your Artwork exampe: Corel Painter Test Image
Choose your Canvas Size.
I chose a very typical WEB based size 300 px x 300 px with 72 Resolution. (For print images, I use 300 Resolution).
If you Click . on the Tiny “+” sign (located to the right of the “Canvas Preset Drop Down Box”, you can open a New Preset (This is your New Canvas to create your artwork). That is the size of the Image that you would like to use on a somewhat regular basis. Name the Preset, Click . OK> /strong> and now you have a New Canvas size that will always show up in your Canvas Preset Download Box. Really convenient.
Then Enter your desired sizes. I usually use 250 px to 550 px for the Height and Width and I always use 72 Resolution for WEB photos and artwork. The Default paper color is White – which I recommend until you get the hang of Corel Painter Digital Painting Software. I use “in -inches” for Print artwork and photos and “px – pixels” for Web Based.
CLICK > OK
You can now copy and paste a photo or sketch of your choice. I take the mouse and click in the upper left corner of the part of the photo I want to copy and drag toward the bottom right.
To Copy – Select the Image – Hold the “Control C on PC keyboard”, or “Command C on Mac”.
To Paste this Image, Click . on the New Blank Canvas in Corel Painter 12 and
Hold “Control V” or “Command V” to Paste.
This is part of the sketch my mother drew for me.
Tip: Shortcut – to Select the Image you just pasted and resize within the canvas,
On the Keyboard,
Hold the “Control – ALt – T” or the “Command – option – T Key”
This puts a selection box around the Image and you can click on the boxes in corners and sides to resize. Hold your mouse down as you resize.
I realize this seems so simple to computer technical people but when you are just starting out, you need explanations of simple and regularly used shortcuts and actions.
Here is a short summary for the Best Painting Software, Corel Painter 12:
> = Click
1. Click > Corel Painter Icon
2. Create New (or Open an Existing Image on your Computer)
3. Name your new Image – Choose Canvas Preset or Enter Size and Resolution for New Canvas-

5. Paste onto your new canvas. “Control V”- PC or “Command V” Mac.
To take a Screen Shot on a Mac – on the Keyboard, Hold down at the same time, “Command – shift -4″
On the Computer Screen that you wish to take a jpg photo of, Click with the Mouse in the Upper Left corner and drag the Mouse down toward the Lower Right area of the image you wish to take a picture of. Release the Mouse and the Mac makes a cool Camera shooting sound and places the new image on your computer. Mine goes to the Desktop.
On PC, Press the “PrnScr Key” to the left of the Delete Key. Open up Painter software and paste – “Control V” and Save. The Mac is much faster. I am partial to Mac yet I have to work on both Mac and PC.
