5.0 out of 5 stars Extremely impressed, better interface, runs better & more compatible with Win7!, 18 Sep 2011
This review is from: PaintShop Pro X4 Ultimate (PC) (CD-ROM)
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
*I used this software on a PC with specs of; Windows 7 64-bit Operating System, Intel i7 960 3.2 GHz Processor, NVIDIA GeForce 580 GTX Graphics & 12GB RAM.*

With the instillation there are two parts with the ultimate edition, the first disk is actually just the "PaintShop Pro X4", this disk took for me around 10 minutes+ to install, the second disk which is the "ultimate" update only took 3 minutes top.

Corel has done a fantastic job in making not only the interface better than PaintShop Photo Pro Ultimate X3, but also the compatibility with Windows 7, a lot of users had severe issues with X3 running on Windows 7, while I liked the software, I must admit now and then I had some annoying crashes with the older version.

When you load up PaintShop Pro X4 Ultimate, you will be in the main tab called "Manage", altogether there are three tabs (located at the top/centre):

-Manage: Easily find photos via the folder search located on the left hand side, you can also view important photo information such as the type of camera the photo was taken with, type of file, which ISO setting you took etc... You can also rate, tag and add captions to the photo. There are two more tabs within manage mode; you can view more in-depth file/camera properties by clicking on the "EXIF" tab, then you have the "IPTC" tab lets you edit photo details such as adding in the creators name, address and contact details (great for professionals stamping their rights), and you can edit the image date it was created and specify where it was also.

-Adjust: This tab lets you adjust the image by cropping, straightening, red-eye fixing, cloning and adjust contrast, colour balance and noise.

-Edit: This tab is the main editing section, you are presented with tons of basic and advanced editing tools along with image effects and settings.

You also have a quick print tab on the right-hand side as well as sharing options such as; E-mail, Facebook, Flickr and Save for Office.

Oh, and the product came with a coupon to get WinZip 15 Pro Single User (PC) for free, which is currently retailed at around £50.

Overall this is a fantastic upgrade from the previous version, it looks better, runs smoother and is genuinely a better solid photo editing package than the previous, I have to say a big well done to Corel for going the right direction this time.

-EDIT-
I've also tried this on my other PC with specs of; Win7 32-bit OS, AMD Athlon 64 X2 Duel Core Processor 5000+ 2.61GHz, GIGABYTE GT 430 Graphics & 4GB RAM, naturally with lower specs the computer took a little longer to load the software than my main PC would, however the software works just as good!
