Layers and Selections

Layers and Selections

By Justin Buus

This tutorial covers a couple of tools that will help to streamline your painting process. You’ll be introduced to layers, that allow you preserve your original drawing by adding new brush strokes to another layer. And if you aren’t happy with the new brush strokes you’ve added, you can just delete the layer and begin again with your original image. You will also learn how to make a selection so you can easily fill in various parts of your drawing.

Thanks for watching! We hope you found this tutorial helpful and we would love to hear your feedback in the Comments section below. And don’t forget to visit our social media pages and show us what you’ve learned by sharing your photos, videos and creative projects with us.

      Hello Soha,

      Thanks for getting in touch! Since Painter Essentials was designed with a beginner or hobbyist in mind, it does not have in-program maximize/minimize or window options. This was seen as a tool most users would not want or need until they grew beyond Painter Essentials and into Painter itself. If you are feeling a little constrained in Painter Essentials and wanted to take a closer look at Painter, we do offer a 30-day free trial for exactly these situations!
