I am new to Painter!
Wondering if anyone can help with importing ParticleShop brushes into Painter 2021. I own a lot of brushes that I use with the ParticleShop plugin for Adobe Photoshop.
I've been in touch with Corel help and they are pretty much no help. Here's where I'm at:
- ParticleShop brush folder has been copied and pasted into Corel/Painter2021/Brushes
- I have "right-clicked" and unselected "read only" (although even after saving it seems to immediately default back to "read only")
- When I look at the Brush Library in Painter I can see the Particle Brushes folder but when I click on it nothing happens
I am running Painter on Windows 10.
If anyone can offer any advice it would be much appreciated.
Truth be told, I don't think they're compatible, for all that they ought to be. In the past, Corel has said that brushes bought in Corel Painter must be bought separately from brushes bought in Particle Shop.
Thanks so much for getting back to me. That's interesting - I did ask the help desk about it and they said they were compatible. However, I've had wrong answers from them before. I have sent another message to them to see if they can sort it out.
Actually, only a few of them weren't compatible. A few years ago tested them by dropping them from one program folder to other. Don't ask where programs brush folders. I uninstalled these programs long ago.
Thanks for your reply. It seems that they are compatible but I'm still trying to work out how to actually get them into Painter. Corel's help desk is really not easy to deal with.
For anyone who happens to see this - I've now been told that ParticleShop brushes DON'T work in Painter. So now I've been told by Corel tech support by two people that they do work and two people that they don't. I've been sent the brush packs as applications and they still don't work. If anyone from Corel WHO IS NOT TECH SUPPORT happens to read this - could you PLEASE provide correct information. I have NEVER come across such incompetent and unhelpful tech support at any other company. Corel would do well to provide some adequate training for their tech support staff.
