4.0 out of 5 stars Needs lots of RAM and some getting used to 6 Feb. 2014
By JWB
Platform for Display:PC| Edition:Ultimate Edition|Verified Purchase
I've been using psp7 for years and I cannot think of one time when it crashed on me. Rock solid and really quick, even on Win 8.1 However, recently I needed to edit some large scans and was running into memory problems, so thought I'd give X6 64 bit a try.

Within 10 minutes, it had crashed twice when using the magic wand tool. On the third attempt, it bizarrely shifted one of the colours in the image. You constantly have to wait 10 seconds while it is ' writing to the undo file'. It takes forever to save large files, and the ui is cluttered and depressingly dark. None of the tools are any quicker than psp7. 64bit software that can't manage the same files as its 10-year old ancestor? Really? When Corel bought psp, I stopped upgrading, as it was taking on more and more of the Corel look and feel (my experience with CorelDraw was always ghastly). Sadly, I think that worry was justified.

I suppose I'm an uncommon user of PSP, as I use the vector graphics extensively alongside the raster layers. It seems none of the original PSP tools have been made any better (although they were pretty excellent in psp7), just more and more photo retouching bloat added.

I wish manufacturers would occasionally bring out a software release that actually significantly improved the existing functionality, rather than just adding bloat upon bloat. This is supposed to be 64bit software. Should I really have to wait 20 seconds for it to save an image??? Or think it is painfully slow compared to its distant ancestors, even on a 6 month old machine with Win8.1?

And the memory problem? - Well, I can load two large images (which psp7 complained about), but the performance drops to zero, so it is unusable! This isn't a physical memory limitation - I still have 3/4GB free.

I bought Paint Shop Pro x6 Ultimate after returning a useless copy of Adobe Elements 12 (see my review for that useless product). What a difference! Be assured this is a serious image editor easily on a par, I would say better, than Adobe's product. I would recommend buying the boxed DVD version rather than the download version from Amazon as a number of people seem to have had difficulty getting support due to a fault with the Amazon supplied serial numbers. If you don't have a DVD drive it is probably better to purchase the download version direct from Corel.

The extras supplied in the Ultimate version are well worth the extra cost, particularly the plugin filters.

It's a long time since I last used Paint Shop Pro (pre Corel days) and the software has developed beyond all recognition. Excellent image editor and very user friendly, intuitive user interface. 64 and 32 bit versions for Windows and it is recommended you load both versions on a 64 bit machine, for compatibility with older plugins. Many Photoshop plugins work in this version of Paint Shop Pro. The Management system ( equivalent to Organiser in Elements) is a breeze and the effects presets are literally one-click.

Forget Elements and don't fall for the hype that only Adobe products are suitable for serious photographers. Paint Shop Pro x6 is superb and more than capable of providing the tools even pro's require.

1.0 out of 5 stars Serial Doesn't work 28 Jun. 2014
Platform for Display:PC Download| Edition:Ultimate Edition|Verified Purchase
The serial amazon sent me doesn't work. It appears to be missing numbers and letters. Corel doesn't want to deal with it because i didn't buy it off of them and have no support code. I spoke to amazon support and they said they would get me in contact with the team that deals with software downloads....frustrating, sometimes its best not to save a few pounds if it causes you loads of hassle.

1.0 out of 5 stars Do not buy this item from Amazon 16 Jun. 2014
Platform for Display:PC Download| Edition:Ultimate Edition|Verified Purchase
The activation code issued by Amazon does not activate this download, and purchasing this item here does not allow you access to the Corel support system (for which you need a separate code from Corel: they will not talk to you without it.)

Amazon's support information on activation keys says 'contact the supplier' but you can't, because you don't have a Corel support code.

The format of the activation code issued by Amazon is not correct, according to the Corel support information.

1.0 out of 5 stars Very Poor Support for on-line purchases 1 Jun. 2014
Platform for Display:PC Download| Edition:Ultimate Edition|Verified Purchase
I purchased Corel PaintShop Pro X6 Ultimate [Download] and the licence key didn't work. I have tried getting through to Corel Support as instructed by Amazon but was blocked because I didn't have a support code which I was informed was on the box BUT I PURCHASED this software over the internet. Wasted a lot of money on telephone calls without a resolution.

4.0 out of 5 stars So far so good 20 Oct. 2013
Platform for Display:PC| Edition:Ultimate Edition|Verified Purchase
Used to have a software package that came with a with a previous Canon Camera, but no longer compatible with Windows 7, so needed an editing package. Am only really a long time hobbyist - just like to be able to 'mess about' with photos, as my originals are not that great. Have been pondering for a couple of years to buy photoshop elements, but there always seemed to be a lot of negative comments. Read some magazine online reviews recently and the Corel Painshop Pro X6 Ultimate seemed to get a mention. There seems to be plusses and minuses for both photoshop and Paintshop. 2 things decided me to but Paintshop. Firstly for PC users Paintshop Pro X6 has updated and now operates on 64 bit , whereas photoshop operates on 32 bit (unless you're a mac user then its 64 bit - that sounds discriminatory against PC users, but there you are!). I am not a 'techie', but I get the impression that a 64 bit does things faster and easier. The second reason for going for paintshop was that again there were several online mentions of paintshop pro (cost me £70 on Amazon - ordered it late Sunday, ordinary post, and arrived Tuesday morning -impressive) being very similar to the Photoshop CS5 software that sells for around £600! Obviously the £600 software will be a lot more 'professional' but at a tenth of the price, I thought I would try it. First impressions after using it for a week are positive. With the 'Ultimate' for about £10 more than the normal pro X6, you get another disk with 3 extra bits on it, plus free standard membership to Corel Paintshop, so I would go for the Ultimate for the small price difference. I watched quite a few of the tutorial videos on the Corel Learning Centre, before I even opened my DVD, and it is REALLY WORTH spending that time to get a feel of it. Read more ›
