View Full Version : Autodesk Sketchbook Express or Corel Painter Sketchpad?

2011-07-08, 06:17 AM
Got a new tablet a few days ago, and with it comes a choice between three free pieces of software - Photoshop Elements, Autodesk Sketchbook Express or Corel Painter Sketchpad. I already have full version Photoshop, 'though its an older version than the elements being offered, so not looking into that. But I'm curious if anybody in the playground has experimented with Corel Painter or Autodesk Sketchbook, and can give any comments on either of them. :smallsmile:

I love Sketchbook Pro. There's nothing like the level of pressure sensitivity that so accurately responds to your hand movements. It's a very simplified, straightforward piece of software, mainly meant for sketching, as the name implies, but it's powerful enough to make some very cool stuff.


I like to sketch in it and color in photoshop. Never used Corel, so I can't say miuch about it, I just know I absolutely love Sketchbook.

Don't use PS Elements, stick to your older version. Elements is stripped of most of Photoshop's usefulness. Very barebones and pointless.
