5.0 out of 5 stars Painter 12 for Photographers 8 July 2012
By el48tel
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
A well structured and written text. If you are a photographer and a beginner with PAINTER 12 and want to know how to use the software, this is the book with which to start. The book has lots and lots of examples of each of the tools and their effects; but more importantly the tutorials start easy and become progressively more difficult so you feel as though you are improving in technique because that's what you are because the author has lead you carefully through the stages. There is a link to a dedicated website from which video tutorials, examples and further written materials are available.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent value for money 3 July 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This is just the book I was looking for. As a photographer I wanted to produce some painterly versions of some of my work. I am new to Painter 12 (although I have a good knowledge of Photoshop) so the learning curve is a bit steep. This book is very clearly written. All of the files used in the book are available from an excellent website which also include video footage. This is a first class book that I would highly recommend.

5.0 out of 5 stars A good book for Painter 12. 14 Oct. 2013
By Philios
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Don't be put off by the title. Even though its about using Painter 12 for photos, it covers a lot about Painters tools
and how they are used to enhance photos and getting them to look like they were painted by oils etc. and not just printing them
out. It covers things like what brushes would be better for a certain painterly look and also advice on how to set your ink jet printer
up for best results. Lots more things are covered.
Thoroughly recommend this for people like me who use painter for producing artwork and making your photos look like
you painted them in different mediums.
