Painter 12.2 FREE Update is Live!



Check out what's new in Painter 12.2. The top line new content is as follows:

  • New! Flow maps: Maximize the creative potential of the Real Watercolor and Real Wet Oil brushes by adding flow maps to help direct the flow of paint, producing less saturation at the peaks of textures and more saturation in the valleys
  • New! Vertical docking: Dock palettes to the vertical edge of the application window by simply dragging and dropping
  • New! Multi-touch support for Wacom Intuos5 touch pen tablets and Cintiq 24HD touch interactive pen displays: Perform movements such as panning, spinning and pinching, in order to work closely with the canvas and stay focused on the art instead of hunting for quick keys or buttons
  • New! Corel Cinco:  A new companion app that gives users complete creative control of the Painter 12 desktop with an iPad

You can check out the release notes and the other fixes here. This update is FREE to all existing Painter 12 customers.

Special thanks to all the beta users that provided feedback and great visuals that show off Painter 12.2!


Attention Mac users.

If you run into installation issues (installation failed message), please check for updates and install the latest patches from Apple.


Make sure you apply all the patches including iTunes, Safari etc. One of these applications applies a security setting that solves this issue.

  • Andy,

    is there any specific reason you've left out apple's native gesture support on mac os in favor of wacom touch features, effectively leaving any mac user with no-touch intuos 5, no touch cintiq 24 HD or any earlier tablet model but with magic trackpad (comes with any macbook pro laptop or sold separately at a cost of less than $ 100) that was the first multi-touch device on market?

    is there anything that wacom made better than apple with intuos 5 gestures that explains this decision?


    other than that, corel cinco looks interesting and apple users still don't have 64 bit support.
