The reason I have bought this version is for 3 reasons:-
1 you can combine bracketed exposures into one photograph. An excellent addition if you need this option.
2 It has better support for RAW formatting, it claims most cameras are supported I have only tried Cannon and Olympus and both work fine. Again very useful if you need to manipulate uncompressed files (RAW is usually slightly compressed but not as much as the other formats)
3 The ability to open Photoshop files. This is the one aspect that let it down in that it did not manage to open all my photoshop files. To be fair it does warn about this in the small print.
As a complete package it compares favourably with a number of top end packages and it is much cheaper. There are numerous filters and effects plus the usual range of tools which are easy to use. As well as built in tutorials for anyone who is new to this type of product, so there is not a steep learning curve, there are a number of one click options like red eye reduction which works well.
A complete photo manipulating package which will handle most file formats available and will do anything that the advanced amateur or beginer will need and very good value.
It simply blows Paint Shop Pro and Elements out of the water to be perfectly honest, and another thing that I like is that it works well with Page Plus X4, another great serif application. Basically I am able to work on all images from within the Page Plus environment. Please feel safe in purchasing serif software, you get a great deal for your money and the after sales service is second to none.
Whats new? PhotoPlus X3 now has improved support for hi-end camera RAW images [e.g. CRW, CR2, ORF, NEF & Adobe DNG] and can also work with HDR [hi dynamic range] and 16-bit per channel photos, plus it has a good range of advanced editing tools. Although PhotoPlus Studio does let you create slideshows, burn discs and so on, it lags behind Elements photo database organiser's abilities. That said I shun such image databases, preferring the simplicity of logical folder names and Nero 8 burning software. Also, whereas PhotoPlus 11 [that's still available] runs on just about anything Pentium PC wise from Windows 98SE/ME to XP/2000 (not Vista), this new X3 version is certified for XP and Vista/Windows 7 only.Read more ›
Photoplus is the only one of these products I have had a issue with, for several months I had no issues with this product, then I'm still not completely sure what happened but the brushes no longer would work, if I even dared to click on the brush section to change the brush it would crash leaving me with Windows trying to figure out what was wrong, figuring that this was a simple uninstall then re install issue this is what I did, and it still wouldn't work. I tried installing it on a different computer and the brushes were there and everything runs smoothly. So in the end I ended up emailing the Youtube page, as I couldn't sign up to the Serif site at the time.
They promised me they would get back to me, that was over 6 months ago.
