Graphic editor Paint Shop Pro X7 can probably not be fully called an analogue of Adobe Photoshop, yet the program of different classes and functions, but as an analogue of Adobe Photoshop Elements - it is possible, and in principle is not inferior to the functionality of Adobe Lightroom, and in some cases even superior to it! Paint Shop Pro, Corel Corporation is a powerful multifunctional raster image editor. First of all, it is focused on the processing of photographs. In Paint Shop Pro there are all the basic tools for this: management and organization of photos - in the program this mode is called "Management", it can be assigned tags to photos, add catalogs, structure images by one way or another. Adjustment" mode, in which you can perform basic actions related to changing the image's exposure, brightness, control of dark / light areas, change the color saturation, as well as adjust the white balance to work with noise. Also in this mode you can use the so-called "Instant Effects" sets of effects to improve your photos. Effect sets are categorized:

Landscapes - effects for landscape photography, such as contrast, slight darkening, intelligent color correction, and more;

Portrait - as clear from the title effect sets to improve portrait photography, adding vignettes, soft tones, soft focus, shades of gray and so on;

There are retro effects to create an aged photograph, imitation of the film, artistic effects - pencil styling, charcoal drawing, faceting, etc. And of course, there are a few options for translating images into black and white.

In the "Edit" mode the images are edited, just like in Photoshop. Paint Shop can work with layers, here you can also cut out parts of the image, use stamps, crop, there is a tool "Brush", you can create a layer mask, as well as the program has a built-in RAW-converter.

The newbies interface may seem a bit unusual at first. But that's not a problem. Paint Shop actively gives hints and descriptions when using various tools, and in general it will not be difficult to master the program completely.

Paint ShopPro X7 is the perfect choice for those who want to process their digital photos quickly and easily.

Paint Shop Pro X9 actually seems great because it has different type of functions and also classes. It also has effect sets which means you can use any feature that you want and create whatever that you want. I think this software product seems like it's one of a kind.
I adore Paint Shop Pro and have been using it for a long time. I bought Paintshop Pro x9 Ultimate a little over six months ago. I couldn't wait to upgrade to the newest version. I was content with my older X4 Ultimate, which I had been using without any issues. But now that I have a newer computer and a more powerful graphics card, I figured I should upgrade Paint Shop as well and be good to go. When it works, it works great. I constantly fight the program crashing when I use it to do a full day's work. I'm going crazy since the program crashes practically every thirty minutes. I am going to save myself the headache and downgrade back to what I am familiar with.
