Product Description

Review

"With his easy to follow instructions, Martin leads you through each technique in an understandable and painless way...His descriptions of the various cloning methods are masterful" - Royal Photographic Society Journal

"The clear structure and concise writing style takes the reader through brushes, papers and textures. Combined with an intelligent layout and a Windows/Mac compatible CD, Painter IX for Photographers is exemplary for its clarity and structure." - British Journal of Photography

"This is a quality publication which very effectively covers the capabilities of a great software package. It is well laid out, with a high quality finish, excellent full colour illustrations and colour coded sections to clearly separate the chapters...Painter IX for Photographers is a book which for me makes the perfect companion to this great software package. Highly recommended." - www.kickstartnews.com

".an easy read with lots of imagery and explanation. A great addition to those who are new to Painter IX, or those who just wish to brush up on their digital painting skills." - John Virata, DigitalProducer.com

From the Author

I have been using Painter (and Photoshop) for many years and have demonstrated the program at photographic societies throughout the UK. The demonstrations have created a lot of interest in this brilliant program and one of the most frequently asked questions has been ‘Is there a good book on Painter for photographers?’ Unfortunately I have been unable to recommend a book as there are very few on Painter and those that are available, cover the program primarily from a painters perspective and give limited help to those who wish to use it with photographs.
Usually the next comment is that I should therefore write one!
So I have, and here it is.

As the title implies the book is oriented towards the use of photographs artistically enhanced in the Painter program and consists of step by step examples of the many techniques available. It is designed for the total beginner to Painter and assumes no prior knowledge. If you have used other graphics programs such as Photoshop or Paint Shop Pro then you will have an advantage, however this is not essential.

The book begins with some really simple cloning examples; cloning is the name for the process in which the original photograph is transformed into an artistic interpretation by using some of the huge range of brushes and textures. There are nearly 50 step by step examples, most of which have the original photograph on the accompanying CD so you will be able to try out the technique on my photograph following the instructions and then apply it to your own pictures.

In addition to the step by step examples there are several reference sections to give you a deeper understanding of important elements. One of the difficulties which any inexperienced user of Painter encounters is which brush to use, there are around 600 variations to choose from and most will need their default settings changed to allow them to be used for cloning. Chapter 5 devotes two pages to each of the 33 different brush categories explaining how they can be used, examples of what the brush looks like and a completed picture. There is also a final chapter illustrating all of the default range of paper textures. This helps considerably in selecting which paper surface to use.

The book is packed with colour photographs to illustrate the techniques and inspire new ideas on how to make painterly pictures.

Format: Paperback
'Painter for Photographers' is a delight both visually and factually.
Martin Addison leads the reader through the various aspects of 'Painter' in a straightforward and practical way using easy-to-follow, step-by-step examples and clear explanations.
We gain a great insight into using 'Painter' from a photographer's point of view. The journey of discovery is enjoyable as page-by-page you find how to change photographs into painterly pictures by using the numerous brushes and tools in the program.
Highly recommended and profusely illustrated, this book will seriously change your approach to photographic art and increase your enjoyment in picture-making.

Format: Paperback
The author takes you step by step through each brush, layers and papers in fact everything included in Painter, with the use of his own illustrations, the illustrations on there own are worth buying the book for! If you only buy one book for Painter this has to be it.

This is an excellent book, I bought Corel Painter IX and didn't have a clue how to use it and within an hour of getting Martin Addisons book I was up and running and creating some nice effects, the book is very easy to understand and I would recommend it to anyone starting out in Corel Painter IX
