Update Provides New Flow Maps, Multi-touch Support for Wacom Intuos5 touch and Cintiq 24HD touch and Vertical Docking

Corel has announced the release of the second free update for Corel Painter 12, their powerful digital art studio. Designed with the creative needs of the painter community in mind, the Painter 12.2 offers new flow maps giving users more control over how paint collects and dries within the peaks and valleys of the canvas.

Painter 12.2 also includes vertical docking, which gives more flexibility to users when they’re choosing which position is most convenient to dock their palettes.

Corel says the new flow maps will maximise 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

The vertical docking allows the user to drag and drop palettes to the vertical edge of the application window. The multi-touch support enables movements such as panning, spinning and pinching allowing the user to stay focused on the art instead of hunting for quick keys or buttons.

“Emulating traditional media digitally is not just about the pen tool in your hand, but the paper, canvas or object you are working with,” said Scott Rawlings, Vice President of Marketing for Wacom Technology Corp.  “Together, Wacom and Corel continue to demonstrate their pioneering spirit by creating natural user interfaces that allow artists to use both hands interactively and feel totally connected to the creative process.”

The free Corel Painter 12.2 update (Windows and Mac) is available in English, Japanese, German, French, Italian, Traditional Chinese, Simplified Chinese and Korean for Corel Painter 12 users. It can be downloaded from Corel’s website at
