Create and Enhance Your Images Using This Outstanding Photo Editing Software

By Pablo Conde Ferrer

On Thursday, October 9, 2014

If you can’t pay for the subscription of Adobe Photoshop, then why don’t you try Paint Shop Pro? I have to say this editing software has some powerful features that can match Photoshop capabilities. This software now runs in a 64-bit system, so you can utilize it at its full-speed. It also has a smart selection brush where you can make a selection based on a brushstroke. Paint Shop Pro also lets you add some effects to create a high-quality result. Moreover, I like that this software allows you to share your photos with your friends and loved ones by uploading it on different networking sites such as Facebook, Google+ and many more. Furthermore, I noticed that its user interface has been modified. It is quite different from the past versions. It is well-organized and very straightforward. Some of the old features and tools are still here along with the new ones. In my opinion, Paint Shop Pro X6 is simply the best. With its powerful features, you can create a professional result in just a matter of click.

Pros

  • Runs in a 64-bit system
  • It has a well-organized user interface

Cons

By Daren Garius

On Thursday, October 9, 2014

I am not a professional photographer, but I want to be one. I decided to try PaintShop Pro X6 because I think this software will help me to make my photographs better and attractive. The first time I used it, I am really impressed with its speed, it is very easy to use and the features are all great. With this program, you will have loads of fun with its FaceFilter, which allows you to do great things. You can put perfect make up, slim your face and many more. For the graphics design tool, web tools for integration and lettering for scrap books, it’s all in with PaintShop X6. For professional users, the raw image files from over 300 are all supported. Moreover, the biggest improvement I noticed about this version is the great menu system and its attractive interface that is very simple to use and to understand. For those people looking for a great editing program, my advice is to try this one.

Pros

  • Lots of powerful new effects
  • New improved interface, simple and attractive

Cons

  • The program is too slow
