The heart of Painter has always been its unique Natural-Media brush technology that simulates the look of traditional art tools and techniques. Continuing the tradition, new expandable plug-in brushes in Painter 5 make painting with texture, noise, fire and glow a creative adventure. Clone and distort images or use the Turbulence and Confusion brushes to apply wavy, gaseous looks, never before available. Dynamic Plug-in Floaters perform image processing effects like burning and tearing to the selected item in real time, without changing underlying layers. Achieve a realistic 3D look of thick acrylic paint using the "Impasto" Floater for controllable gloss and thickness. Painter 5's brush architecture has been optimized to take advantage of Intel's Pentium processor with MMX technology. Intel MMX technology allows for faster onscreen performance, by performing color calculations faster. When using large brushes in Painter or working with compositing methods like Gel, Multiply or Darken, Intel's MMX technology makes Painter shine with optimized performance.

Painter 5 offers artists and designers an option to optimize their environment with new customizable palettes and tear-off tools. The improved Paint Bucket tool, Crop tool, Magic wand and custom function keys complete Painter 5's interface enhancements. Always an indispensable tool for web designers, Painter 5 now supports animated GIF export. By using Painter's frame-byframe animation capabilities, web designers can start with QuickTime™ or AVI movies and export GIF animations for use on web pages.

Painter ships with dozens of pre-built color palettes, including the Netscape 216-color palette and the 256-color default palettes for Macintosh and Windows. Painter also allows any graphic to be turned into an image map. A full Color Management System by Kodak and support for Hi-Fi Hexachrome output means Painter 5 users have consistent, high-quality color they can bank on.

From the "Read Me First" file inside the CD:

This special bundle version of Painter 5.0 is exactly the same as the full retail product. The only difference is your documentation has been provided in an electronic format (as an Adobe Acrobat PDF file) and the software has been pre-serialized. Please look on the Painter CD-ROM, in the Documentation folder, for the Painter Tutorial and User Guide.
