Since Apple has discontinued Aperture, offering a highly controversial Photos. App instead, I was happy that there is the Lightroom alternative. The recent software update to sixth version convinced me of this again. Lightroom 6 is not a revolution. For many years now, this software development is rather evolutionary, because the app does its main task very well. However, some rather useful features were added recently. The most important change of Lightroom 6 is that the app has learned to use a discrete graphics card, which led to the great speed increase. The next important feature is the ability to automatically detect the faces. When you first start Lightroom CC the program asks whether to include this feature, and if you enable it, the program begins to scan your library. My twenty thousand photos have been processed somewhere for five hours. Lightroom finds people on the photos and asks you to name them. Due to this you can quickly find people in your library. It is nice that the number of false positives is small. Lightroom 6 also offers HDR feature and panoramas stitching. Both functions are quite simple: you need to choose which photos you want to merge, then select the desired menu item. Lightroom will show a window with the basic settings and after a few seconds you will receive the result. You can save the picture in DNG format. It is also worth mentioning that the slideshow in Lightroom 6 can include photos (with different panning effects), video, and music. And the module for web galleries creating can handle HTML 5.

Pros :

  • Really fast processing of images due to the newest hardware support.
  • Great facial recognition Sync module works fine.
  • If you use Lightroom Mobile, you will immediately see your smartphone photos on the desktop.

Cons :

  • There is still no video editing.

It is now many years that Corel develops excellent software and different Suite to allow photographers, designers, and technicians to create and improve at the best their projects. PaintShop Pro is a great product for photo editing that is included in CorlDraw Graphic Suite and can also be purchased individually. With the many features and professional tools made available can be considered one of the competitors of Photoshop.

Pros :

  • The strength of Paintshop Pro is definitely a chance to work on their own in a highly professional photo and at the same time using an interface quite user-friendly, thanks to tabs Manage, Adjust and Edit will allow you to gain confidence day after day with each individual instrument.
  • Like all major photo editing software, you have available the feature multilayers, due to the levels you can apply different types of effects and nuances applying a superposition of levels thus having the only limit of your imagination and creativity.
  • Paintshop Pro provides all types of automatic image correction, a large number of filters and effects applied to your photo, different types of Adjustment (brightness, contrast, shadows, saturation, Color, Clarity, Tones, etc ..), several useful tools how much it used Clone Brush, different kinds of Brushes, Text tool, Pen, erase, red eye tool, etc .. Currently with the latest version (Paintshop Pro X8), you have two types of licenses: PaintShop Pro X8, sold on offer with 10% discount at a cost of € 62.99 (44.99 if you have already purchased the product, and you only need to upgrade to the latest version) PaintShop Pro Ultimate X8, this also sold on offer with 10% discount at a cost of € 79.99 (62.99 if you have already purchased the product, and you only need to upgrade to the latest version) PaintShop Pro is also sold in the money-back formula, then you will have 30 days to claim a refund if the software does not meet your needs.

Cons :

  • Some effects and some tools are a bit too basic and not very attractive, but for the price at which it sold really great value for money.

With the introduction of Lightroom 4, Adobe has added several useful new tools, and made great improvements in other areas. In this review, I'll take a look at the key new features in Lightroom 4. One of the biggest changes is the reduction in price.

PaintShop Pro X5 Ultimate has two big advantages over Photoshop: a lower price and easier-to-use modes for beginners who might be intimidated by working with layers. PaintShop Pro X5 Ultimate is a versatile, pro-quality full-featured photo editing program which even demanding, experienced Photoshop users will find perfectly capable. It crashed once on my underpowered mini-notebook during many hours of testing, but other than that I can find very little here on the down side.
