Painting for Photographers Volume 2
Printed version

Painting for Photographers Volume 2 is compatible with Corel Painter 12, X3 and 2015. The main differences between Painter 12/X3/2015 and Painter X/11 are the user interface and the introduction of a Clone Source panel. If you are pretty familiar with Painter X/11, you will be able to figure out how to use this book's techniques even though they are written for Painter 12 and X3. By the way, the reason the book isn't being offered for Painter X/11 is that they're just too slow by comparison. Consider upgrading to Painter X3/2015-it really is great!
