I just purchased Artrage and am learning how to use it. I am not a good artist as so many of you obviously are, and I will be using the tracing method with many of my photographs. But, aside from when the tracing paper is on, how do you pick up a specific color from a photo or work in progress to use on it? Actually, is there a way to have a reference photo open at the same time as what I'm working on? Also, is there a place to test out your color, brush stroke, etc., before putting it on what you're working on? In Painter, for instance, I can keep a second file ready for both of these uses.
Thanks for your help... this is a wonderful program.
