Top critical review
on 7 March 2012
Bought to replace an earlier version which was not fully Windows 7 compatible. Whilst it still does all the basics and has added some facilities, in use it's clunky and slow, slower than hitherto on the same machine. If I want to review pictures and maybe view, adjust or crop, that will involve access to three separate pages, all available in the same PSP window. So a lot of screen is swallowed up, leaving small representations of images in the work area. And it's easy to lose track of where you are and what you're doing. Yes, it does what it says it will, it doesn't cost the earth, but it has lost the ability of the original JASC PaintShop Pro to accomplish simple tasks quickly and with ease, and I imagine that may well be what the vast majority of users seek.
