Auto-painting with Painter Essentials

Auto-painting with Painter Essentials

By Discovery Center Team

A great way to start digital painting is to use the auto-painting tool in Painter Essentials 5. Sit back and watch as your photo is magically transformed into a painting, sketch or line drawing. Just choose your image and a painting style, and then let the SmartStroke™ brush technology follow the lines and contours in your picture just like a real artist would. Once the auto-painting is complete you can add some touch-ups and photo effects.
