Corel Paintshop Pro for Windows is a feature-rich photo editing and graphic design software which affordable with various weekly and yearly subscription options. The program is one of the most popular and powerful photo editors, with over 290,000 downloads, which is professionally recognized. It provides a very generous selection of features that allows the users to retouch and edit images extensively.

Some notable disadvantages of the program are the lengthy installation process, the fact that a Corel account is required before installation, and the overwhelming interface.
