Studio Artist Users Forum
The Studio Artist Users Forum is a complete social networking site available for Studio Artist users. It's a great place to ask Studio Artist related questions and receive answers from Synthetik Software as well as other expert Studio Artist users in the discussion forum. There's an extensive photo gallery of user artwork created in Studio Artist, as well as a user video gallery. New paint and effect presets from Synthetik Software and from other Studio Artist users are available for download from the forum. Tutorial posts on wide range of Studio Artist topics are available in the Groups section. You can also construct your own personal home page and Studio Artist blog if you wish to.
Browsing through the user generated artwork on the user forum can give you ideas for creating your own Studio Artist effects. If you see a piece of user generated art you like, you can ask questions in the comments section about how they created that particular piece of art using Studio Artist. The discussion forum should be your primary destination for asking 'how to' questions about working with Studio Artist. Social networking with other Studio Artist users is a great information resource, as well as a great way to become a part of the Studio Artist community.
If you are reporting a bug or technical problem, please submit a request to the customer service area (as opposed to posting on the user forum discussion forum).
