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.

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.

The extra applications don't add much value, but CorelDraw is still coming up with new ways to design sophisticated vector graphics.

Along with the usual editing tasks PhotoStudio 6 works great as a "de-noiser," with very high megapixel and 48-bit images, and as a program that offers macro recording for reuseable functions you apply to a batch of photos. It will not give Photoshop a run for its money, but it did impress me overall at the tasks I performed.
