I'm using it more and more but can't seem to NOT use Photoshop for some things that can just be done right in Painter. I love Painter...but some things can be improved.
I use OSX Leopard.
1- color correction tools - be able to see the changes realtime in the canvas instead of some small limited viewer ( not all adjustments do this...but some do). Take hints from Photoshop! Add an on off button right there on the tool prior to commiting also.
2- transform tools with a hot key just like PS. Warping would be nice.
3- UI is buggy. Icons dissappear until clicked on...(layers palette happens during startup - the add layer icons) Also...a setup of palettes like PS cs3 would be nice. To be able to arrange them neatly and even have some hide and unhide when you need them. To pop in and out on the edge of the screen. This would help in maximizing space.
4- redo the airbrushes to get the same effect as ...guess what? PHOTOSHOP. lol The Airbrushes in PS are unmatched. the ones in Painter seem thicker at the slightest pressure for some reason or denser. Can't get a good airbrush like the way PS does it.
5- image previews for RIFFs and PSD's and JPGs in the Finder. For some reason it doesn't give me a little image preview.
When are we expecting new version anyway? Anyone know approx?
