NEW Video Preview Review, open and organize videos and extras single-frames from video clips.Well, I rate it five, however, Corel urgently needs a RAW guru. Corel have lost some ground since Adobe bought Pixmantec (which product was the core of Corel's RAW converter). Quite funny, Adobe announced yesterday about Adobe Photoshop Elements 5 which would be released somehow in late October. And voila! Corel released (not announced) the competitor.
I am also excited to see this version, one thing should be mentioned, LOTS ogf the plug ins for Adobe Photoshop work just as well in paintshiop, I personally like the ease and structured easty to find workflow much more convinient than in Adobe products.To me it is the fastest compression ptrogram "web Design" but lacks in features for masking and retouching aka healing brush "adobe".I am not as sophisticated yet, therefore the ?JASC product is my choice.
I've used Paint Shop Pro off and on since the 3.x versions, and never have I been disappointed. It is a very affordable and capable Photoshop replacement.On a personal level, I like to do sprite artwork. Photoshop isn't very well suited for it, and I've found Paint Shop Pro to be far more useful for what I need to do. This new version's improved features, in particular to me, the paint engine, is impressive! The new version 8 looks to be the huge innovation PSP fans have been waiting for. What are YOU waiting for?
