If you are looking for Corel PHOTO-PAINT, you have come to the right place. We explain what Corel PHOTO-PAINT is and point you to the official download.

What is Corel PHOTO-PAINT?

Corel’s Photo-Paint is Corel’s primary raster graphics editor, much like Adobe Photoshop, Paint Shop Pro, and GIMP (and basically most of amateur and semi-professional image editors and photo enhancement applications), and essentially has the same features and capabilities though not as well-known. The Corel Photo-Paint is usually bundled with CorelDraw, which is its larger and more well-known cousin. Photo-Paint can open and access files made by its competitors, such as Photoshop; its native file format is called .cpt, and it has support for layered image editing (layers in Corel Photo-Paint are called objects).

Corel Photo-Paint was first released in 1992 and has enjoyed backing, especially from CorelDraw users, as the Corel Photo-Paint is usually packaged with the CorelDraw Graphics Suite and is an integral part of CorelDraw’s capabilities (for example, images in CorelDraw can be opened in Corel Photo-Paint to be edited in raster fashion, and vice versa).

Corel Photo-Paint also allows its user interface to be simpler than its competitors, and buttons, toolbars, and other UI objects can be moved, resized, or docked as the user sees fit. There are a variety of effects and enhancements packaged with Photo-Paint as well, including Smart Blur, a Gaussian blur effect which retains sharpness around the edges.
