New Cloning Capabilities

By Cher Pendarvis

Painter Master Cher Pendarvis explores some of the new photo art features in Painter 2018 that allow you to clone using textures that incorporate transparency. In this tutorial, you will get a quick tour of the Photo Art layout, including options and settings available in the Photo Art palette drawer and clone source panel. Cher then shows you the new clone brushes that are available in the 2018 Cloners category, and demonstrates how to paint in a texture, by hand and with the auto painting feature. You will also learn how to add more elements on new layers, using new photo art textures, different cloning brushes and tracing paper. See how you can use the Move and Size option to place and adjust new photo art textures to the size and position you want. The tutorial ends with a quick demonstration of several of the new clone brushes to give you a preview of the different brush strokes.
