Corel Painter 2016 PC Download on Amazon: $49.99

Painter 2016 PC Download [Download] https://www.amazon.com/dp/B013EXB...HxbK5J1HNA

This is the standard version, not education or an upgrade.

Normally cost $429, and the Mac download and disc versions are $249 on sale. So the $49.99 price for PC download is crazy.

I can't say much about the software, but at that price, worth checking out possibly. The last time I used it was in the 90s when it use to come in a real paint can.

Note: You'll receive an activation code from Amazon after ordering. Then, you can go into your software downloads area in Amazon to download the PC version. You can register the activation code with Corel, and while it will say PC/Mac version, they don't give you a download option, so you have to rely on the PC Amazon download. Back that up to.

This started at least yesterday, don't know why it wasn't posted here.
If you purchase something through a post on our site, Slickdeals may get a small share of the sale.

this has to be a mistake. crazy fantastic deal. Front-page if this works.
If you don't want to pay monthly for Photoshop then this is the best alternative.
I paid $110 for the 2015 edition and that was a deal. This is just nuts

Hard to believe, I rushed to purchase it yesterday, about 19 hours ago, thinking it had to be a mistake, yet, it's still there the next day. It's probably cheaper for you to buy it again over the upgrade price from 2015 to 2016

Im so glad I made a deal alert for this lol. Bought it. I got Corel Painter X Student Edition for $50 a couple years ago so this is fantastic. Full version to mess around with now. Love it. Hopefully its been properly supported.

According to CCC, it has been this price since July 4.

If it is a price mistake, and it definitely seems like it, Amazon is not yet aware of it.

Seems like a really good price but I'm not sure if there's any real reason to use it over anything else these days since it seems like everything it was better at 10 years ago PS has added and other alternatives like Clip Studio seem to be far more popular.

Is this product the remains of Fractal Design Painter, that I use to own?


How does one stop all the Corel spam? It pops up in their products, in my email too today. Is there a setting to stop all that?
(For the email I had to write them because their unsubscribe link was broken)
Overall, a bad taste left over from their products.

Well, Corel just sent me yet another email asking for feedback of their performance in removing me from their mailing list.

Between that and all the nag screens, I think I will pass.

If this is the same product that used to come in a real paint can, then I spent hours playing with it on my Mac and a Wacom tablet. (about 20 years ago)

How did they get your email? Maybe from a past purchase directly from Corel or after creating an account to register a product?

In this case, you would be purchasing from Amazon, and once you download the software from Amazon, you'd install, open and paste the activation code received from Amazon. At that point, you'd be up and running without giving anything for directly to Corel. Hopefully Amazon doesn't pass anything on to them.

Based on your experience, I hope I remembered to uncheck the box to not receive updates and deals when I signed up at Corel to register.

Can't say I've seen any pop ups or nagging when I tested Painter yesterday for 15 minutes. Are you experience that in the same version of Painter?
