I got Painter Essentials in a bundle with Paint Shop Pro. This is the first time I've used it. I tried auto-paint, which works as expected except it completely changes the colors of the original.
I've tried several original JPEGs and it does it with all of them.
After a moderate amount of Googling, I didn't find a solution.
This is on a Microsoft Surface Book. I have several other digital painting programs that work just fine on this device.
I guess that's what it does - change the colors. I later found a few effects that didn't change the colors. Not what I was expecting after watching the webinar yesterday or the YouTube videos I found. Seems to pick its own brush, too.
Hi Kenneth, the Auto-Paint presets in Painter Essentials do control the colorizing and brushes that are used in the process. We did just release Painter Essentials 8 and have presets that stay true to the original image colors if you would like to give it a try by downloading the trial.
i have PE7 and don't like it. While slower, i usually use PE4 which has none of this nonsense, and gives you much more control in auto-painting and freehand. No interest in PE8 as it is too much like PE7.
