updating painter and brushes

I sent this to support and they said I must post this on this site. I have just upgraded to 2023 but I just feel so sad to see a product that I have used for over 30 years become all about making money from the basic brushes. I am just lucky I sti...

Merge brush looks with brush variants

The texture and texture settings should be saved with the brush variant instead of having to create a separate brush look. Photoshop, Paintstorm Studio, etc all save the texture with the brush instead of having this extra step.

Have Brush Icon show Direction or Rotation of stroke like Enhanced Brush Ghost

Layer Styles for Text

Would be great to be able to bevel/emboss text, add drop shadow (with ability to move and change opacity and color), add glow, etc. Would eliminate having to go into PS.

Ability to create straight lines & shapes such as circles/square by holding for a second at the end of the line/shape

In Procreate, you create straight & curved lines & clean shapes such as squares, circles etc by holding at the end of the line/shape for a second…it will automatically create a straight/curved line or shape closest to what you’ve drawn wit...

Integration of PSP and Painter

Currently users often have to call on PSP to supply the tools which are not available in Painter. Use of a call from Painter directly to PSP tp supply these tools would cut workflow time and stop the need for intermediate files and versions to be ...

Fix Dynamic Plugins

Dynamic Plugins have been with Painter for years and have always worked until Painter 2023. Two of the Plugins are no longer working as they should, Tear and burn. They leave a circle on the edge of the image.
