Summary: I used to play around with the Jasc version of this on Windows XP and Windows 7, and I loved it. Needed something that would work with Windows 8, so I bought this one. I was glad it was pretty much the same as the Jasc version. I'm not a PRO at this, but I like some of the things you can do with it, so it's a lot of fun!
Summary: Needed a slightly more advanced editor, and remember my days of using older versions of Paintshop Pro I figured I would give it a try. It can do most anything an advanced amateur would need to do, but it is detailed, and you need to put some time in to learn it, even for simple tasks like cropping. Know what you want before buying this.
Pros: Powerful enough for amateur photographers. There is a fairly steep learning curve, but owning this probably means this is a hobby for you, so enjoy. It is a big enough name that the internet has plenty of How to videos to help you along.
Cons: Have used other more polished, professional, and pricier software that would save you time, but at a higher cost. I have not found anything this can not do that other editors can, but other editors are easier to use and more intuitive.
Summary: I purchased PaintShop Pro because my son uses it a lot to upgrade his pictures. It seemed so easy to use and even though I haven't done very much with it at this time, I can see where I will have unlimited possibilities. Yes, I would definitely buy again.
Pros: I used paint shop pro 7 for many years and very happy with it but now it is time to move up to a newer and better version. They have made a lot of changes to the program over the years and I think I will be just as happy once I get used to it.
Cons: It will take time to learn all the new stuff that they have added and stuff they have changed
Online videos makes learning this program easy and fun. You'll love it !

Summary: This is an excellent product, I purchased it from millerandyoung ( 3254 ). This product was exactly as described. It came in the original box and unopened just as if I had purchased it from the store. Program operation is made simple by online videos and the tools included are excellent. The one step photo fix and noise removal make photo processing simple and easy. Change the color of your eyes, very easy to cut out people and put them into different scenes.
