View Full Version : BEst way to see graphic images in B&W, while maintaining color relationships and othe

01-26-2007, 03:29 PM

I'm new to painter and got some questions i hope you guys can help me with:

1. How do i choose any Image type(Grayscale/RGb/CMYK)? like in photoshop

2. Currently, when i click Help, nothing happens, i checked the folder and
the help file is there.. i think there is a broken link or something? how
do i resolve it?

3. I wish to see an Image in grayscale while preserving all the value
relationships correctly.

I know of several way to do this in PS, but was wondering which one is
best to use in Painter
-Reduce saturation to 0, convert to grayscale, convert to lab & creating
new image from grayscale channel, playing with individual rgb channels

which one of the above / are there any better ones best serve my purpose?

4. also, when i try to reduce saturation in painter's adjust color
command, why does it go to -139? is that the 'saturation-less' version of
the photo?

5. how does the dropdown box : Uniform color/Paper/ Image, Original
Luminance affect it?

6. Say i have a black and white image which i wish to add colros to, while
preserving intact the value relationship of the entire layer. Would using
'Color' blend mode achieve that? any other better way to do it?

In case you haven't seen it yet, Imaging Dev (one of the Corel Painter developers) answered your questions in the Corel Painter IX newsgroup.
