Corel Paint It! Review and Giveaway


Turn your photos into beautiful paintings in just three easy steps with Corel® Paint it!™. This fun photo painting software takes your favorite photo memories and magically transforms them into unique, hand-painted works of art. Simply choose a painting style and press Start Photo Painting. Then add fun effects to make it truly yours. Save, print, share online or frame your photo art creations. Voila, it's your life, automagically painted!

I played with this software several times since I received it and I fell in love.  I even saved all these wonderful pictures of my daughter, which I changed with Paint It! Unfortunately, I did this on my desktop and it is currently in the shop.  My netbook has no disc drive.  But take my word, this software is very easy to use, even my young teenage daughter found it simple and captivating. 

You choose a snapshot, then you choose what kind of style of painting you would like.  The software even picks up the shadows, the lighting, and color intensity and applies it in your painting.  After a few clicks of the mouse, your ready to print!

Styles to choose from are Oil, Impressionist, Illustration, Modern, Watercolor, Watercolor sketch, Pastels, Pen and Ink, Pencil and Colored Pencil.  You can even play with a few of their special effect brushes to liven things up, such as a Leaf  Brush or Pattern Brush.  I can't wait for my desktop to be fixed so I can go back to creating beautiful pieces of artwork for my walls and as gifts. It's also perfect for crafting and scrapbooking!

You can try it yourself! Free Trial

Corel Paint it! is available immediately through www.corel.com/store and will be available shortly at selected retailers across North America, including Wal-Mart Canada, for a suggested retail price of $39.99.

The old grey donkey, Eeyore stood by himself in a thistly corner of the Forest, his front feet well apart, his head on one side, and thought about things. Sometimes he thought sadly to himself, "Why?" and sometimes he thought, "Wherefore?" and sometimes he thought, "Inasmuch as which?" and sometimes he didn't quite know what he was thinking about.

Thank you for taking time out of your day to leave a comment. It's appreciated.
