Grains are for Corel Painter™. Grains are paper grains. Grains are stored in native Painter grain PAP files. All are All commercial use, create items for sale. All designs are by No particular install folder required. Access the grains via Painter toolbox (bottom). Use paper selector. Load via the open library command / select PAP. Use grains in brush strokes. Seamless. Use grains in paper settings of many effects. Use in distortions, surface apply, etc. Re-scale / contrast grain settings as required. Use as a source for new grain designs. Screenshots with kind permission of Corel Corporation. Grains Sampler PC only


Load PAP library and access paper grain designs tutorial

Once you have the grains palette open, go to the load library menu on the palette and load the PAP library (there are many different PAP libraries as it would be impossible to include all the grains in a single file). The grains can be scaled, the contrast changed via the grains sliders. Painter grain palette example


paper grains for Painter

Painter and Paper Grains / Brush grains

The grains can then be applied in a variety of ways in Painter: Painter brushes for one (Volume to paper method) as well as most of the effects (a dropdown can be set to original luminance, paper - the one you want is the paper method) in apply surface effect, express effect and more

Glass distortions and Painter grains

The grains can also be used in many other areas by using the selection / paper grains option to select an area and then apply effects such as lighting using the grain. My favorite for the paper grains PAP files is the glass distortions and you can use the grains in 1000s of ways in glass filter (as well as effect layer) All the grains are seamless, all the grains can be used as a source for other grains and tile effects. The grains are all commercial use, create items for sale, use to create distress and grunge effects in countless different projects

Surface effect

The grains can be blurred, the grains can be applied as surface effects (great designs can be created just by changing the color of the lights and the angle of the lights in the apply surface effect dialog). The grains can also be used in effects, the grains can also be used combined with other effects and more. Literally a stunning toolkit of designs and effects for Painter.

Grains format

The Painter grains were created a while ago so now the grains DPI might not be the greatest for all kinds of design work if you require a large DPI (say documents 4000 x 4000) You can scale the grains and smooth to a great degree and still create truly wow image and grains and blurry glass distortions with all the powerful grain files. Any questions about the paper grains, please contact support at

Grains and Glass / distortion

Grains are great for glass and metallic effects. Use in the glass distortion effect (found in effects > focus category). Modify the softness, variance, direction, and glass mode. Fade / re-apply and more. All the Painter grains supplied from can be used with the glass distortion effect.

Paper grains and multi-dimensions

Grains are useful to export to Studio max, Carrara for bump maps

Tiles and grains

Use the grains as a source for tile 'original luminance' option in distortion / surface methods in Painter. Use as a source for mosaics or brush strokes or clone sources. Or use the grain via tiles as a source for clone color or for impasto brush effects. The grains can also be easily added to the tiles libraries. Just create a file to the original proportions of the grain and then use the express effect or other command and apply and save the grain or use the define tile in the tile palette.

Grains and apply screen command

'Apply Screen' uses the paper grain in Painter (and grainy pap files) to excellent effect. Use to create superb screened effects. Modify the various thresholds and color settings to create a wide range of weird and wonderful flat color screens (great for web design) or blur or use the depth of field filter afterwards. The 'apply screen' can be used to create a variety of different different screens, even by simply modifying the scaling or contrast of the screen/grain

New grains

Use the paper grains as a source for a totally new grain, save the new grain to your paper library for a near infinite range of grain designs

PAP library / paper grains for Painter™

All the grains in this collection are stored in native PAP file format. You can use the paper mover to move the grains from PAP library to another. Definitely recommend making a backup of key PAP libraries.

Express effect command

Use grains in express effect command to create stunning black and white imagery. After apply surface and express effect, use a blur and even use the excellent (if not slightly slower) depth of field filter applied to the Use a color fill to add some color or the color effects. The grains can be used for superb black and white imagery in 'express'.

Distress command

Use the paper grains in the Painter distress. 'Distress' effect uses the grain and offers a wide selection of edge, edge amount, smoothing, variance and threshold settings to create stunning grain infused image effects. Superb for stunning black and white images and screened effects.

Grains and color command

'Color' effect uses the paper grains from Graphicxtras as well. Use the dye concentrations or hiding power settings to create different colored grain effects on any surface or image.

Custom tile command and grains

'Custom tile' effect uses the grainy grains to create weird and wonderful grains. Use the blur commands and different color combinations to create unusual tile effects. By using different threshold settings, such as the min. (to use mainly the tile grain) or the max (creating a combination of tile grain and image). Even by using different thickness (of grout) settings, many wonderful color grained effects can be created.

Adjust dye command and grains

'Adjust dye concentration' effect uses the grain with different max and min. threshold settings to add interesting color effects. Again, the effect also comes into its own when combining different effects such as blurring the result and then reapplying the dye concentrations with different papers or different scaling of the same paper.

Floaters and grains

Grains can also be used in a number of the floaters such as glass distortion or the burn effect. Use the grains in the burn dynamic floater to create unusual torn / burnt edges. Use grains via clone and clone source in dynamic floater 'liquid metal' (as well as glass distortion floater to layers and text..)

Applied surface grain command and Painter grains

Effects > 'Applied Surface' Subtle shifts or different color combos and shine settings can be used to create a wide variety of weird paths, wobbly, blobbed, metallic -- 1000s of different wonderful color bump surfaces.

Pop art command and Paper Grains

The grains can be used in the pop art fills by saving the grain as a tile and then using the original luminance settings

Brushes and grains

Or select a grain brush or use the grain in impasto or use in watercolors or with digital color. Use the grains in combo with brush strokes. Most of the brushes (and even nozzles can use the grain information via a selection or grain/layer) use the grain information depending on the method and sub category such as using a grainy flat cover or grainy edge or using the grain information in various effect methods such as the 'add grain' brush. Use the grain as a source for a Painter™ captured brush. Export grain and then select and use the captured brush command.

Motion blur command and grains

The motion blur and soften and super soften cannot use the grain information but again, simply use the selection commands and then apply a smooth or blur.

Shape layer / grains for Painter

Use the grain created selection and 'convert to shape' to create a grain shape. The vector shape then can be transformed and distorted or used as a floater (convert to a floater). Apply brush strokes to shape/floater or effects or use the shape/floater as a color effect. Export the shape layer to AI format and others

Edge effects and grains for Painter

Create wonderful edges using paper grains in Painter, apply the Painter grain to a rectangular block of white on black or vica versa. The grains can be used with many of the commands to create different grain effects such as using the glass distortion or apply surface effect command

Installation of grains

Please place the grain files PAP format in a sub folder of Painter™. Access the Painter paper grains files via the paper grain palette and use the load library command to load the PAP file. The current PAP designs are removed and the new paper files are added. Little thumbnails of the grains will be displayed in the palette

Auto Painting / grains

Use the grains in auto painting using the apply method / sub category as 'grainy' or use a grain effect (or auto clone as earlier!)

Painter™ Essentials 4 3 and Grains

Paper grains will NOT work with Painter essentials. They are a totally different format
