The Balancing Act

Release Your Inner Artist for Mother's Day

Have you ever thought one of your photos could be a great painting?

Do you have boxes filled with photos, from the old days when we actually had to take film to be developed in order to see our pictures? The ability to look at our photos instantly on a screen had yet to become available and there was no such thing as Photoshop. Photos lived in photo albums and boxes, that’s just the way it was.

Photography as a hobby and as an art form has exploded in recent years; with the invention of phone cameras we have the ability to capture life’s moments anywhere, anytime. After taking the picture we now have the power to manipulate, edit, add effects and generally digitally “develop” the photos on our computers or even right there on our phones.

The advancement in technology continues to move forward and get better with each passing year. Corel has been creating incredible software and tools that enable us to take our photos to the next level for many years now. With the advancement of computers and pen/tablets replacing the typical mouse, the amount of control that can be placed in our hands is unparalleled.

Have you ever been looking through your photos on your phone or computer and come across one that is so perfect you have thought: “Wow, that would look incredible as a painting”? There are people or services that can look at your photo and create a painting for you, however this can be incredibly costly. Why not do it on your own?

If you are thinking, “not a chance, I am no artist”, you can stop right there. Thanks to Corel and the new Painter X3 program, you absolutely can be! The program works with a tablet and pen type mouse, allowing you to use the pen the way you would a paintbrush. Sensitive to pressure and touch, you can have absolute control.

Still not convinced you could do it? Well Corel understands that so Painter X3 has different levels to start you off. The beginner level will do the majority of the work for you while guiding you on how, as you become more confident you can take more control eventually taking one of your favorite photos and creating a beautiful painting to display for years to come.

No more excuses, you now have the tools available you need thanks to the Corel Painter X3 and a Wacom pen tablet to release your inner artist. To learn more about Corel and the many different programs they have visit and
