Corel Corporation has kicked off the "Summer of Painter" with two announcements
regarding Corel Painter IX. The Corel Painter IX 9.1 update is now available as
a free download for all Painter IX customers. The update provides customers with
new features and enhancements including:



Dual Monitor Support for Windows Customers running Windows 2000 and Windows XP
can now also experience the same level of dual monitor support enjoyed by Mac
OS X customers. Palettes, toolbars, and the toolbox can now be moved outside the
application window and dialog boxes appear on the same monitor as the active canvas.




New Art Pen Brushes Following the introduction of the Corel Painter IX Art Pen
Brush Pack this spring, Corel has introduced five additional brushes to take advantage
of the powerful realism and control of the Wacom 6D Art Pen. Customers who download
the 9.1 update will receive 10 brushes in total, which include the five brushes
previously introduced in the Art Pen Brush Pack.



Enhanced Dab Type Support for 'Rotation' Expression In addition to adding new
brushes to take advantage of the Wacom 6D Art Pen, Corel Painter IX 9.1 offers
rotation expression with the following Dab types: Circular, Captured Dab, Artists'
Oils, Camel Hair, Flat, Liquid Ink Camel Hair, Liquid Ink Flat, Watercolor Camel
Hair, Watercolor Flat, Palette Knife, Liquid Ink Palette Knife, and Watercolor
Palette Knife.



Enhanced Support for Mac OS X Tiger Corel Painter IX 9.1 now provides even better
overall performance when running on Tiger. This enhancement complements the Corel
Painter IX Spotlight plugin introduced earlier this spring that enables customers
to take full advantage of Tiger's advanced searching capabilities with their Painter
files.



To download the Corel Painter IX 9.1 update and to access a full list of included
enhancements, please visit www.corel.com/painterix/91update.

IX upgrade policy has been broadened to include any graphics or imaging software

Corel Painter Classic, Painter Essentials, and any previous version of Painter),

Crane & Company has introduced new, double sided Museo II, available exclusively
in 250 gsm and 365 gsm weights. This completely new, fine art matte paper is 100%
acid free and buffered with pure calcium carbonate to protect the paper from environmental
acidification throughout its lifetime. Museo II contains no fluorescent brightening
agents. It is made from 100% cotton fibers, which are the purest source of cellulose
and it's produced with micro-filtered, naturally occurring, Artesian well
water. Coated on both sides, Museo II is two-side printable. Museo II's
"felt" side has a subtle Velina finish. The "wire" or
smooth side has an even, smooth surface.



Museo II has a brightness of 91 and a Dmax of 1.65, using Epson Ultrachrome inks.
Significantly higher Dmax can be achieved with the use of dye inks. The company
claims that Museo II will produce the purest blacks and whitest whites of any
available inkjet paper without optical brighteners. When properly profiled and
printed on high-quality dye or pigment photo inkjet printers, it is said to produce
exceptionally smooth gradients and the widest gamut of competitive papers. MuseoII
is also a "forgiving" paper that will produce excellent results from
most desktop inkjet printers, using Crane's available profiles.
