Complete graphics editor for all levels of ability

PaintShop Photo Pro is the new name of Paint Shop Pro, one of the most popular and powerful photo editors out there. The newest version of PaintShop Photo Pro includes all the tools you need to view, manage and edit your images, plus a vast collection of filters, effects and other elements that let you go creative with your photos.Maybe this generous selection of editing tools is responsible for PaintShop Photo Pro's lengthy installation process. PaintShop Photo Pro features a sleek, dark interface that can be quite confusing during the first few minutes of usage.It has so many different windows, palettes and toolbars that it feels a bit overwhelming. Our advice here is to spend as much time as necessary customizing it to your needs and, of course, trying out all the program’s buttons and menus.

Once you get the knack of it, you’ll start realizing PaintShop Photo Pro is actually a very powerful image editor. You’ll be able to adjust photos with simple rotation, cropping and straightening tools, or retouch them with the Fix Red Eyes or the Scratch Remover tools.

PaintShop Photo Pro also includes utilities to create collages, add text and graphics and insert frames and borders, among other possibilities.We especially liked the Express Lab, a special tool to quickly fix common image glitches. PaintShop Photo Pro is a fully featured photo editor that takes a while to get to grips with, but which includes a wide array of powerful tools.
