Welcome to TutorAlley
(click the bird to enter
after reading below)
TutorAlley Forums move to a new web hosting server started early
morning Monday August 21, 2006 has been completed as of Sunday August
27 at 4:30 am PST. The forums are again functioning (as far as we can
tell) so current members can begin using the forums again.
For a number of reasons, the move was more complicated than one would
have expected and it took many calls to tech support and one lucky call
this morning (Sunday) when the tech support guy had time to reconfigure
all of the paths and URL's then stick it out with me while we tested
It was not an experience I'd like to repeat any time soon but thanks to
Mike at Value Web, we have TutorAlley Forums up and running again.
I'll also update the Heads Up notice on the PixelAlley
home page and leave the alternate methods of contacting me at the
bottom of this page on the chance we might need them during the next
week or two:
At the bottom of this page, please check the list of other forums where
you can PM me if you have anything important to discuss with me in the
meantime. Please use PM rather than public posts so we don't offend by
posting discussions that have nothing to do with the forums' purposes.
Thanks for your patience!
to time constraints and to keep TutorAlley Forums focused on its
original purposes, some changes have been made with regard to
registration and membership. The original, and continuing, purposes of
TutorAlley Forums are as follows.
To provide a place where Painter classes,
workshops, and tutoring sessions
can be taught in private forums.
To provide a Corel Painter focused
and learning center for people who:
Are serious about learning, using, and
enjoying Painter, and participate in our forums, both private class,
workshop, or tutoring session forums and general non-private forums,
Treat other members with courtesy and
Abide by our General Forum Guidelines,
Respect our policies regarding copyrights
as outlined both in
our Guidelines and at the bottom of each TutorAlley Forums page.
New registrations are no longer be accepted on a
"walk in" basis and are
now limited to the following, with membership in each case only
after the registration is approved by the site owner, Jinny Brown:
Corel Painter ("Painter") class,
workshop, or tutoring session students

tutoring session fee,

initiated by the site owner.
Unless you've enrolled in a class, workshop, or

owner to register, or received a special invitation to become a member,
please do not register.
Workshops, and Tutoring Sessions:
you're interested in a Painter class, workshop, or in tutoring
sessions, please e-mail
Jinny Brown for information.
Include a brief description of your experience with Corel Painter, the
version you're using, the kind of work you want to do with Painter, and
what you'd like to learn. This will help determine
whether a class, workshop, or a series of tutoring sessions will suit
your needs best.
Important Note from
As of the second week in August, 2006, after hooking
up DSL, I've had an intermittent problem receiving and sending e-mail
and sending to newsgroups. One ISP, two web hosting companies, the DSL
provider, and tech support for my e-mail software have, to date, not
been able to figure out a quick and permanent solution. Until some time
consuming and complicated changes are made, I'm flying on a wing and a
prayer with my e-mail and newsgroups so I hope you'll bear with me
until this is resolved.
If you send me an e-mail and don't receive a response, let me know via
a post or a PM at one of the following forums:
