MetaCreations Painter Classic v1.01
For Macintosh and Windows PC's

With Painter Classic 1.01, anyone can paint or draw with realistic results, render scanned photographs into chalk sketches or oil paintings and create animated flipbooks and export them as digital movies.

Painter Classic can simulate the tools and textures of Natural-Media, from felt pens, charcoal, and colored pencils to watercolor and oils. It gives you freedom to sharpen, soften, and retouch scanned photographs, clone, or make your image appear as though it were painted on handmade paper.

The first download is a hybrid ".iso" CD image of the Mac and Windows installer set in a ".zip" archive.
Originally sourced from the Web Archive, here.

The second download is a CD image of Corel Painter with installers for English, German and French languages. It's essentially a rebranded version by Corel after MetaCreations sold off their creative interests. This CD was bundled with a Wacom Art Pad in 2000. The download is a Toast image, compressed in a ".zip" archive.

Pre-serialized media: Install codes are not required for either of these disk sets.

Architecture: PPC x86 (Windows)


For Mac OS's 7.5 to 9.2.2

If extracting the (DL #1) .zip file on a classic Mac OS system, for best results use "MacZip" to extract. This disk image will mount OK onto a classic Mac desktop if you use the "Virtual CD/DVD Utility". Otherwise, "Toast" will mount (and/or burn) this CD image file OK.

The Corel version of Painter Classic (1.0.1) was also bundled with a Wacom Art Pad in 2000 and pre-serialized. On that CD-ROM are English, French and German installers.
