4.0 out of 5 stars Good for Beginners 19 April 2009
A very good introduction to Corel Painter for those new to the software who want to use it primarily for manipulating existing photographs. Painter is a complex package and it is not easy to find one's way around so that a book such as this is definitely needed. However, it does not go much beyond the basic automatic functions. Also, space is devoted to additional (and expensive) plug-in components which most users will probably not want to buy. It is large-format, very colorful and the manipulated photos are impressive.

5.0 out of 5 stars A mine of information 19 Jun 2009
Information in this book is available, if you know where to look, the beauty of the book is that its all there between the pages, no need to go searching. To have it covering the two major software programs is an added bonus. Well worth the asking price.

I have a lot of books but this is the best. Down to earth and easy to follow. The link to the tutorial files did not work but I contacted the author and she send me the correct link immediately. Great!

4.0 out of 5 stars good book to inspire you 15 Aug 2010
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Positives:This is a good introduction to the subject, well laid out chapters, not too much detail and well illustrated. Also a good selection of available files to 'play' with.
Negatives. this uses quite a few expensive softwares (although available in trial versions) simultaneously so if you wanted to recreate the ideas it could be very expensive. Also the description mentioned Corel PAinter Essentials, which I have, but I could not find any mention of this in the book. This book is aimed at Corel Painter users. As I went through the chapters the instructions were very much 'do this and do that without the 'why' so I found it difficult to reproduce on my own pictures.
Having said all that the book is well priced and manages to cover a lot of ideas and techniques worth persevering with.
