A complete art studio at your fingertips! Whether you're an illustrator, concept artist, traditional artist, professional photographer, or designer, Corel® Painter® X3 will give you all the tools you need to unlock new artistic possibilities. With hundreds of customizable brushes, paper textures and wet and dry media that look and feel just like the real thing, Painter replicates real-world art supplies more realistically than any other paint program on the market. Plus, new features and Photoshop compatibility makes it easy for artists of all skill levels to learn and use Painter.


As digital art continues to make its way into the mainstream, Painter is about as realistic as it gets, and an invaluable resource for any artist.

"From someone who came from a background with Photoshop, my mind was blown. Painter is my weapon of choice now. I use it every day." - Mike Thompson, Professional Illustrator "I really worked at trying to get X3 to crash and it's as stable as bedrock. It's finally ready. If Corel never releases another version - I'm set. I'm a digital abstract artist. I typically use oil as my medium and with a little brush tweaking my paintings look no different than a print of an actual canvas. X3 is simply amazing." - Raler, User Review "As a full time Painter user for over ten years I was extremely pleased to see Corel has added a few powerful tools that traditional artists use... Corel has released their best version of Painter yet!" - AddictedToPainting, User Review "Corel Painter X3 remains a compelling tool for creating traditional-looking artwork with a computer, especially now that it's easier to navigate." (5/5 Stars) - PC World "... it's the perfect playground for artists who want control over tool creation." (4/5 Stars) - CNET Editors' Review
