Very Versatile Photo-editing Software,
This review is from: PaintShop Pro X4 Ultimate (PC) (CD-ROM)
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)This software comprises of two discs, which take approximately ten minutes to load. It loaded up well with my Windows 7 operating system. I have a little experience with other photo-editing software, so I was keen to try this one. Firstly it does look a little complicated but there is a good booklet included which breaks down all of the component parts, such as managing your photos, editing and adjusting.
All the details of the images is plainly seen so you know what you are dealing with. So far I am impressed, as it's a good all-in-one package and clear and easy to use compared to some other more well-known photo-editing suites. I mainly use the editing for straightening, cropping and altering contrast etc....The layers and effects are pretty good and with practice I am getting better. I keep discovering more applications each time I use it. I've also been able to upload images to the internet fairly easily, which is a bonus. I particularly like the smoothing tool to make skin look smoother and clearer (!) and also the HDR applications for making dynamic shots from bracketed photographs.
I am pretty impressed with Corel's Paintshop Pro X4 Ultimate, as it helps me work on my photographs easily and as everything is in this one software package it makes life much simpler. I'm pleased with the results and it will definitely help me with my artwork.My boyfriend who is a real pro with photo suites thinks this is well worth getting as it has many applications but is fairly straight forward to to use.
