Moving between Adobe Photoshop and Corel Painter is simple. Files saved to the Adobe Photoshop (PSD) file format open in Corel Painter IX, with layer masks, alpha channels and layer sets (layer groups) maintained.
Layer behavior in Corel Painter is now very similar to Adobe Photoshop. New layers are now added above the selected layer, layers with different merge modes are collapsible, and it is now possible to hide or display multiple layers by simply clicking and dragging.
In addition, Corel Painter now supports Photoshop plug-ins for Mac OS® X. Enhanced Wacom Support
Corel Painter IX features support for Wacom's newest pen tablet model — the Wacom® Intuos®3 — and the entire Wacom tablet product line. The Wacom Intuos3 has touch strips that can be configured to control brush size, zooming, and many other functions, eliminating the need for a keyboard while painting. In addition, tablet keys can be used as modifier keys, such as Command, Option, Shift, or Spacebar on a Mac; or Ctrl, Alt, Shift, or Spacebar on a PC.
