"Paint Shop Pro's Decline continues"1.5 starson by EonDel
Pros: Better quick fixes for photos
Cons: Interface nightmare, slow, buggy & Animation shop is gone
Summary: I have been a fan of this program since V3
X continues the pattern of improvements in quick photo edits that started with 8 but also the slowness, program crashes the loss of addition programs and higher cost make PSP less and less of a value.
The Browser is just plain ugly, they have released a patch but still havent figurd out the best place for it is on the left or right.
9 took forever and a day to boot up and crashed continually and X follows its lead. The most annoying is the bug when minimzing and maxing screens the image gets shoved to the right and you cant move it.
The quick edits are fine but as others said the other tools are very hard to find and or control.
At one time PSP could compare to Photoshop. I guess they gave up and now are competing with Elements
If you can find it get Version 7 aniversary. Still my favorite and if you check out many of the PSP forums its the favorite of most.
