Versatile creative design tools
PaintShop Pro X5 Ultimate is more than just a photo-editing solution, it's also a powerful design program that's perfect for any visual project—whether you're creating dynamic logos and designs, developing images for the web, or adding creative touches to your photos. Enjoy a variety of powerful design features, including creative brushes, textures, layers, vector tools and more!
Creative web graphics
Whether you're an aspiring or experienced web designer, PaintShop Pro X5 Ultimate offers everything you need to create, edit and optimise your web graphics. Use built-in image slicing, mapping and simple rollover tools to create interactive web graphics. Results can be previewed in your web browser and new web image files are exported automatically with accompanying HTML code, making it easy to add to your web design projects.
Stunning HDR photos
Autobracketing is a powerful camera technology which automatically takes multiple shots of the same scene with different exposure settings. PaintShop Pro then selectively recombines the shots to create a single stunning HDR (High Dynamic Range) photo with intense visual contrast. PaintShop Pro X5 Ultimate includes a variety of enhanced HDR features, including Exposure Merge features which allow you to preview HDR photo alignment, add moving objects and create black and white HDR photos. For added functionality, the Single RAW Photo feature allows you to split an individual RAW file into three images and then selectively recombine them to create an HDR-style effect.
RAW photo editing made easy
RAW is a powerful photo format which contains more information and detail than the traditional JPEG format of most digital cameras. PaintShop Pro X5 Ultimate features the Camera RAW Lab, a unique tool system which supports hundreds of camera models, allows for simple batch processing to convert RAW image files, and includes the ability to apply non-destructive adjustments to your RAW photos.
Connect with photos and people
With PaintShop Pro X5 Ultimate, connecting with those around you is even easier thanks to all-new features that bring photos and people together. Use the new Find People feature to automatically scan your photos using powerful face detection technology. It's the quick and easy way to identify, tag, and organise your photos based on the people who appear in them. You can also save time by linking friends and family members in your photos with Facebook and Flickr so they're automatically tagged when you share online.
Share your photos and your travels
Whether you want to share your latest travel adventure or are simply looking for a way to add a new dimension to your photos, PaintShop Pro X5 Ultimate offers a variety of built-in features that combine places and photos. Use the Map Mode to view and add real-world locations to your photos using GPS data, Google Maps search, Facebook check-ins or copy and paste locations from other photos. And for the ultimate photo-travel experience, use the Share My Trip feature to create interactive slideshows that allow you to integrate your photos into a detailed map. Save your photo-map as a slideshow or upload it to your Dropbox account for optional sharing on Facebook.
