Immerse yourself in Natural-Media® that mimics reality

There is no experience required so that you can plunge right into an art studio that’s easy to learn and produces impressive results.
Easily transform favorite photos into paintings
Produce incredible art with the powerful, user-friendly SmartStroke™ brush technology. Choose from two simple methods: let Painter® Essentials™ quickly Auto-Paint any photo, or you can paint from the photo to get a hand-hewn work of art.
Invaluable illustration tools
Craft characters and environments using tools built for the job. The Mirror tool saves you half the painting time, the Particle brushes bring fur, hair, fabric and smoke to life, and F-X effects brushes add that extra special edge to your work.
Paint program with award-winning brushes
Create using media that you can trust as the best out there. Although Essentials is built for beginners, the brush technology has stood the test of time. Every brush in Essentials was custom selected for new digital artists from our professional Painter art studio so that you can make the most of your digital art experience.
Pressure sensitive memory
When painting with a drawing tablet, you will have full pressure sensitive control of every brush allowing you to recreate the look and sensation of painting with traditional media, even if you have never used it before. Splay brush bristles or accentuate a paper texture using the stylus to control every amazing stroke.

The time-saving Mirror tool reflects your painting on the opposite side of the canvas using your media of choice. Turn on Kaleidoscope and paint using 3-12 reflective segments and create stunning kaleidoscope paintings.
Drawing tablet support
Essentials incorporates pressure sensitive memory that will adapt to your particular touch. Provide a sample of your stroke in the Brush Tracker to globally set sensitivity or save your pressure for each of your favorite brushes allowing Essentials to remember and respond accordingly.
