Painter 7 Available Now

New version supports Mac OS X By Dave Nagel
Corel has started shipping Painter 7, the latest version of its natural media painting and animation suite. It becomes the first product to launch under Corel's new "procreate" line of software. According to Corel, procreate is a new line of products geared specifically for "powering and extending the possibilities of design." The company also says Painter 7 supports Mac OS X.

New features in Painter 7 include:

  • Watercolor technology recreates the benefits natural media artists gain when using the watercolor medium. Painter 7 enables users to control the wetness and evaporation rate of the paint.
  • Liquid Ink layer mimics the viscosity of a thick, gluey medium like ink or paint.
  • "Full support" for the new Aqua interface designed for Mac OS X.

Painter 7 is available for $499 for all platforms. Registered users of any previous versions of Fractal Design Painter 4 and 5 or MetaCreations Painter 5.5 and 6 are eligible to purchase the upgrade version of Painter 7 for $199. German and French versions will follow in September and October. For more information, visit
