   Painter comes back to us for another version in the hands of Corel and proves that Corel knows how to go one better on an already excellent and mature program. Those digital artists out there have more reason to rejoice with Painter 7, and the doubting traditional artists have a little bit less to doubt.

   A First Run

   Painter 7 comes in a stunning white box with a single magenta trickle of paint running down the side. Elegant in it's simplicity, it's a box that immediately looks like it belongs next to the OSX box. Even better, it looks like it belongs in a newly opened Apple Store, already smells like a conspiracy. The plot only deepens when one spies the small black rabbit in the upper right corner and the word "procreate" beneath it. Looks suspiciously like the new "Pro Create" ads Apple has been running recently. But then, none of this is surprising if one has followed the news since Macworld, where Corel initially showed off Painter 7 and revealed their deep commitment to the Mac, as well as showing off their affinity for OSX.

— Excerpt from review by: Ian Mankowski, 2001 (Web Archive).

Serial: PF70CED-2780827-SZT

Architecture: PPC (Carbonized)

Minimum system requirements:

Should be OK on PPC OS X up to 10.4.11.

"Installation in OSX is a snap, with only the minor annoyance of having to drop into Classic to perform part of the installation/registration process." — As noted in Ian Mankowski's review, linked above.

And could be the show-stopper (no "Classic mode" in 10.5 & beyond).
