What’s New in Painter 2023?
NEW! Build up the smoothest strokes with Fluid Paint
Gently build up paint, blend, sculpt, glaze, add texture and reflective light easily with the new Fluid brushes. Built to take advantage of layer transparency, these versatile brushes give you unmatched opacity control and smoothness in your brush strokes.
NEW! Visualize better with overlay option
Use the new color overlay option in selection tools for improved visibility of selected areas. Especially useful for selections with complex shapes and transparency, the overlay helps to speed up the creation, editing, and refinement of your selection.
Improved! Access to Selection controls
Accelerate your workflows with the new Selection Panel that gives you quick access to all controls while performing selection-intensive tasks. Quickly feather your selections with a handy slider in the property bar and adjust up to 2000px.
ENHANCED! Work faster with enhanced selections
Use improved keyboard shortcuts to switch from addition or subtractive selection modes. A selection is auto-applied when creating a mask and several other enhancements will make your interactions with Selections faster and more predictable.
Select areas based on color with brushes
