Part 2: Introduction to Cloning

Part 2: Introduction to Cloning

By Helen Yancy

Now that you are familiar with the Photo Art workspace, it’s time to start painting! The first step is cloning, and Painter has some powerful cloning tools to help you transform a photo into a work of art. You can choose the Clone function or the Quick Clone function – both will duplicate your source image and embed it as the clone source, which you will be painting on. But the Quick Clone function will also automatically set up everything you need to begin painting, such as turning on the tracing paper and selecting a cloner brush. Quick Clone is faster and easier for beginner photo artists – once you are more familiar with the process you may choose to use Clone instead, and manually set everything up yourself.

    If you are just getting started using Corel Painter, Helen Yancy is easy to follow. She is accurate with the explanation of the settings and she explains how to use the settings in details. Thank you Helen! This program is hard to learn and it is not easy finding videos that help you learn.
