Painter 7 Tutorials - A Beginning
by Jinny Brown and Friends e-mail

As with Painter 5 and Painter 6 Tutorials, this list will no doubt grow as we grow in our knowledge of this exciting and challenging new version, Corel Painter 7. If you find someting that needs improving (and certainly there will be some), don't feel shy about letting me know. My e-mail address is all over this page and all over PixelAlley so it shouldn't be hard to reach me. Thanks, and I hope you'll enjoy what gets published here. To find Painter 5 and Painter 6 tutorials, click the link named Tutorials at the top and bottom of this page. You'll also find at bottom of that page, a list of my favorite PAINTER-RELATED E-MAIL LISTS, FORUMS, MESSAGE BOARDS, AND NEWSGROUPS
I hope you'll join them and take advantage of the wealth of information, skill, talent, and generosity to be found in the Painter Community.
