Paint Studio 3 is now available and can be downloaded from the Pixarra website at http://www.pixarra.com/download.html

 

All the users with Studio Bundle Perpetual license and those who have bought Paint Studio 2 or Studio Bundle 2 within the last 3 months will receive free upgrade to Paint Studio 3.
The Studio Bundle Perpetual license holders can use the same license keys. We will email new licsense keys to the others within a week. 

We recommend that users with OS Windows 10 run the program as admins for a better performance. This can be done by right-clicking on the program icon and selecting Properties. Then, check the "Run as an administrator" option in the Compatibility tab. 

Here is what's new in Paint Studio version 3:

So is Paint Studio just replacing pro or whats the plan here?

Seems like Pro is getting a bit on the abandoned side lately.

No, Paint Studio won't replace TwistedBrush Pro Studio. It is a lot more complex program than Paint Studio. 
TwistedBrush Pro Studio will be also upgraded, but after we finish with the upgrades of the other Studio products.

I'd be interested to know the sales data on the new studio line of programs vs pro myself. It seems like a lot of time is being put into them, but have they actually been advantageous for you guys?

A lot of people like and use the Studio Products. We can't leave them behind and it's been a long time since we last updated them.

I am getting "Coupon has exceeded maximum use limit" on the recent email promo offer for $59 for life time studio bundle

and your contact forum isn't working in any web browser on my computer or cellphone so I decided to post here as a last ditch effort.

Hi,

We changed the coupon settings and you should be able to use it. We are sorry for the inconvenience.

Really liking Paint Studio 3 looking forward to seeing the other studio apps updated to use the new keyboard shortcuts and interface changes. Right now it's very jarring and frustrating to go between Studio 3 and the rest of studio line so really hopefully new versions of everything else are coming soon.

In the future if there are going to be lots of hotkey/interface changes I think it would be best to hold back on releasing one until you can release all of them so that they are properly matching.

Hi NuttyD, thank you for your feedback. We are working on updating all Studio ptograms, but since it takes some time, we prefer to release them one at a time.
