Divine Proportion and Layout Grid
Use guides and grids based on classical composition, creating a sense of proportion that guides the eye of the viewer across a painting.
Flow maps are textures designed to maximize the creative potential of the Real Watercolor and Particle brushes by helping direct the flow of paint.
Mirror Painting and Kaleidoscope
Easily create a symmetrical painting by allowing Painter 2019 to create a mirror image by reproducing brushstrokes on the opposite side of the canvas or multiple reflections of mirror planes.
Choose from a library of included canvas Paper textures. Adjust, import or create your own and either cover or reveal texture using a variety of media types.
Display non-printing Perspective Guides to create objects that give the impression that they are receding, or vanishing, from view.
When finalizing your painting it might help to add touches such as paper texture, emphasizing 3D brushstrokes, or applying directional lighting.
Integrate intricate surface texture into your projects by selectively painting or filling portions of the canvas. Use Texture Synthesis to automatically generate a larger texture for you.
Open a photo, launch the Auto-Painting Panels and prep, auto-paint, and restore details with ease.
You can use images, textures, and patterns as clone sources. Use the Clone Source Panel to open the clone sources, change size and shape if desired, and paint from the embedded opaque or transparent images.
Quick Clone and Clone
From the File menu choose Clone or Quick Clone to begin photo painting. Clone creates a new document with your image on canvas where Quick Clone clears the image from the canvas.
Thanks to enhanced support for multi-core processors and CPUs that use AVX2 extensions and extensive code optimizations, Painter 2019 runs fast. A huge selection of brushes is noticeably faster — some as much as twice as fast. You can also take advantage of faster document rendering when zooming, panning, and rotating — up to 50% faster.
Dark User Interface
Launch a refreshing, professional interface that makes your artwork the focus. The main user interface elements in Painter 2019 features a darker theme that allows the interface to melt away and painting to take center stage.
Application Icons and Controls
Painter 2019 features over 650 redesigned icons to make things easier on the eyes, simple to understand, and more efficient to use. Also, try using modifier keys to precisely select values.
Drag to Zoom
Use your stylus or mouse to zoom in and out of your document quickly by using the Click + Drag option. Move to the right to zoom in and move to the left to zoom out. Hold the Shift key and drag-click to zoom into a specific area of interest.
Paint without any lag time with strokes that will always track underneath your Brush Ghost. You will now see a cursor while painting but you can change which icon appears during brushing. As you rotate the stylus, your Brush Ghost will rotate with you and offer real-time feedback.
Experience the intuitive way to simultaneously pan, zoom, and smoothly rotate your canvas using two fingers on a Windows touch device. To reset your painting view simply double-tap with two fingers.
Customizable User Interface
Customize brushes, media content, palettes, shortcut keys, and more to set up the optimal work environment. Plus, you can import content from others to complete your toolset.
