Corel Paint It! Review & Giveaway

bannerPaint_It I love photography. I love what you can do with awesome software programs to those photos. Enter Corel Paint It! and you’ve got a really cool editing program.


Corel Paint It!’s tagline is “Your photos automagically painted” and they’re right.

It’s absolutely fascinating watching this software do it’s job! How it knows what colors to use and where to put them is beyond me, but they become works of art!


There is a really cool “restore” button that you can use once you have “painted” your photo. It will restore the parts of your photo that you want to look like the photo again!


There’s a fun set of 15 brushes and brushstrokes that you can use! Some of them that I think are cool:



  • Furry Brush

  • Fire Brush

  • Fairy Dust

  • Wave Brush

With Corel Paint It! You’re only limited by your imagination! I appreciate that there’s a “Get Started” guide to help you understand the workspace and features. Very user friendly!


corel Ready to enter to win Corel Paint It!? There’s also a free trial at Corel. You can also purchase Corel Paint It! online.


Required: Visit Corel Paint It! and under the “Features” tab, tell me which Painting Style you’d like to try.


Giveaway open to US and Canadian Residents 18 yrs and older. Please leave your email in your required entry or have it available in your profile. No email/contact = No entry. Giveaway ends 9/25 midnight PDT. Winner has 48 hours to respond.
