New Layer Enhancements

Painter 2021 includes many user-requested layer improvements and in this video, we’ll take you through them. To start, you can now choose to paint on a default, thick paint, watercolor or liquid ink layer type and choose a color profile right from the New Image dialog. There are also many new options in the Layers panel, such as adjusting visible depth for Thick Paint brushstrokes, converting the canvas or any layer to a special media layer, plus quicker access to controls right from the panel.
