Ottawa-based Corel Corporation has won the American PHOTO Editorâ€™s Choice Award in the Imaging Software category for its Corel Painter X application.
â€œWe are honored that American PHOTO has recognized Corel Painter X as one of the industryâ€™s best imaging software solutions,â€ said Nick Davies, General Manager, Graphics and Productivity for Corel.
The company describes its Corel Painter X as a powerful tool that lets photographers apply a range of painterly effects to their images that is far more extensive and varied than what they get from typical image editors.
For novices, the imaging software offers the Smart Stroke feature which Corel says applies brushstrokes automatically in keeping with the photoâ€™s internal shapes, â€œwhich it does with a surprisingly human touch,â€ according to the company.
American PHOTOâ€™s Editorâ€™s Choice awards are conferred annually by American Photo and Popular Photography & Imaging. The awards honor the industryâ€™s best photography products.
