Corel® Paint it!™ Makes it Easy for Artists of All Ages to Express their Creativity

Fun for the entire family, Corel Paint it! gives creative minds of all ages an exciting new way to enjoy their favourite photos. With multiple painting styles, brushes and realistic effects, Corel Paint it! makes it fast, fun and easy to apply personal touches to any creative project. Much more than a photo-painting filter, Corel Paint it! encourages budding artists to apply their own personal touches to favourite photos. In addition, users can start and stop painting at any time, restore original details from the photo and add their own special touches. The result is a unique hand-painted masterpiece that's perfect for sharing with family and friends. Ideally suited for photo enthusiasts, scrapbookers and families alike, Corel Paint it! inspires the artist in everyone.

"We are delighted and honored to have been recognized with our fourth PTPA Media Seal of Approval," said Rob MacDonald, Product Manager for Corel Paint it!. "It is especially gratifying for us to have parents test our products and give their endorsement, since it is very important to us that we consistently deliver a rewarding and fun experience to our customers."

"At PTPA Media, we are proud to play a role in certifying innovative new products that families can trust," says Sharon Vinderine, president and founder of PTPA Media Inc. "It's win-win.
