Photoshop is a arresting tool, but abounding of its users could do aggregate they charge to in Corel’s photo alteration software, PaintShop Pro, afterwards accepting to pay a annual accolade to Adobe. PaintShop Pro supports layers and lets you adapt both raster and agent angel formats—something you’d charge two of Adobe’s Aesthetic Billow apps to do. You absence out on some of the Adobe flagship photo editor’s best avant-garde tools, however, including 3D modeling, abundant typography, and face liquefy. PaintShop Pro’s Performance is faster than in beforehand versions, but in some photo alteration operations it lags Photoshop. Likewise, while PaintShop Pro’s interface has bigger abundantly over the years, it’s still not absolutely as able and unified as Photoshop’s. If you’re a Windows user who’s not committed to the Adobe ecosystem, PaintShop Pro is a aces alternative, abnormally accustomed its low cost.
PaintShop Pro 2022 is attainable anon from Corel or via retail for $79.99 (or $59.99 as an advancement from any antecedent version); it’s frequently discounted. The Ultimate copy ($99.99, $79.99 upgrade) throws in added software—AfterShot (Corel’s photo workflow app for importing and acclimation agenda photos), Corel Painter Essentials, PhotoMirage Express (converts still shots to animations) and added brushes and backgrounds. You’ll charge Ultra to get the AI HDR Studio and Sea-to-Sky Workspace (see below), PhotoMirage animation, and added brushes.
PaintShop Pro is attainable from the Microsoft Store app on a cable base at $7.99 per month. This gets you all updates but no billow storage, such as you get with Adobe’s subscriptions.
The ancient acquirement options are a acceptable fit for those who still resent Adobe’s move to a subscription-only archetypal for Photoshop, Lightroom, and Illustrator. For $9.99 per month, you get both Photoshop and Lightroom, but Illustrator starts at $19.99 per month, if you prepay for a year. Photoshop Elements ($99), Adobe’s consumer-level photo alteration software, requires no subscription, but that software has added of a hobbyist feel, as adjoin to the company’s pro-level offerings.
PaintShop Pro runs on Windows 10 (recommended adaptation 1903 or afterwards with the latest Service Pack (64-bit editions). You aboriginal install a baby downloader affairs that completes the installation. You accept to accept whether you appetite 32-bit, 64-bit, or both—the aftermost agency you’ll be accordant with both 32-bit and 64-bit plug-ins. Afterwards this step, the affairs asked me to admission an email to actualize an account, which alone requires acceptance by responding to an automatically generated email.
Corel offers downloadable aftereffect packs, too, such as ParticleShop brushes and ColorScript blush furnishings (for $14.99 and $4.99, respectively). I installed PaintShop Pro on my analysis PC active Windows 10 Pro and antic a Core i7 6700 CPU, 16GB RAM, and an Nvidia GTX 1650 cartoon card.
Corel puts a lot of accomplishment into convalescent and abacus appearance to the admirable angel alteration software, demography acknowledgment from user advising boards and affairs telemetry to adjudge what bodies want. New appearance for the 2022 adaptation accommodate AI Accomplishments Replacement, AI Portrait Mode, and a much-improved AI Appearance Transfer. It additionally adds abutment for the HEIC and HEIF book types that iPhones use and an adapted Acceptable and startup experience. New brushes, blush palettes, gradients, patterns and account tubes, and a Anatomy apparatus for agreement images central shapes annular out the updates.
The Ultimate adaptation adds a Highlight Reel video slideshow-creating affection (similar to the one in Corel VideoStudio), MultiCam Abduction Lite for awning and webcam video presentations, Painter Essentials 8 for simple drawing, sketching, and painting on the PC.
In 2021, PaintShop added a touch-friendly photography approach that includes a breach before-and-after view, attainable for seeing the furnishings of your edits. (I’d still like to see a side-by-side advantage like Lightroom’s.) Additionally accession in that adaptation were AI Upsampling, AI Denoise, AI Antiquity Removal, AI Appearance Transfer, and the HDR Studio plug-in. A big apparatus from this amend is the Sea-to-Sky Workspace (only in Ultimate). It’s applies adapted fixes to underwater and aeriform shots, such as those from a drone.
Other contempo updates added a bulk of accoutrement as well. The 2020 adaptation added SmartClone for aggregate assorted angel selections; Clarify Brush for selecting circuitous altar like beard or timberline lines; new brushes, blush palettes, gradients, patterns and account tubes; Argument apparatus enhancements; and an bigger Depth of Field tool. Available aural the Crop tool, Depth of Field lets you position the focus breadth with a five-by-five filigree of squares. The 2019 adaptation added 360-Degree camera support, an bigger crop toolbar, stylus and book support, and a more-customizable UI.
PaintShop’s Acceptable awning shows your contempo files, artefact news, tutorials, and add-ins for purchase. Aces an angel to assignment on, and the affairs starts up in one of four workspaces you choose: Photography, Essentials, Complete, and Sea-to-Sky. Alone three tabs adroitness the top of the Complete affairs window: Home, Manage, and Edit. Abreast from the simple Photography workspace, the others anniversary booty you through an interface bout astrologer to appearance you what’s what.
The Photography workspace is simple and touch-friendly. I acknowledge the adeptness to use a blow awning added and added as blackmail of carpal adit affection from boundless abrasion acceptance looms.
In the Photography workspace, you acquisition basal accoutrement like Rotate, Crop, Brightness, Blush adjustments, One Footfall Photo Fix, and White Balance. You additionally get some of the adherent tools, including AI Upsampling, AI Denoise, AI Antiquity Removal, and AI Appearance Transfer. There’s an arrow alms alike added tools, like the advantageous Local Accent Mapping tool, High Pass Sharpen, Fill Light/Clarity, Vibrancy, and Fade Correction. I’d like to see adjusters for highlights and caliginosity here, too, but they’re MIA. A Fill Light ascendancy makes up for the abridgement of a caliginosity slider, but the Photography appearance offers a attainable split-screen appearance to see your edits’ effect. You can acclimatize the argument and figure admeasurement and workspace colors, as well.
Another activity I’d like to see in this Photography approach interface, abreast from highlights and shadows, is an easier, one-button way to get to the program’s other, more-advanced workspaces—Essentials and Complete. You can about-face to any approach from the Book > Workspace menu, but buttons would be quicker. A accessory interface affection I like to see in photo apps is accepting sliders breeze to the absence position back you bifold click.
From Welcome, you can additionally alpha with activity templates. PaintShop’s templates are agnate to the Actualize chat that appears back you aboriginal run Photoshop. The New Angel dialog’s Blank Canvas tab is affluent with choices like Photo, Paper, Web, Mobile, and Social. One activity I don’t see, which Photoshop has, is a Clipboard best that sizes your new activity to an angel you’ve copied. The New From Template tab, like Photoshop’s, offers several certificate types, including calendars, collages, cards, business reports, and amusing media. Best of these are in-app purchases—in both programs—though you can actualize your own custom templates.
The interface is customizable back it comes to blush and the admeasurement of elements such as icons and annal bars. These options get their own capital agenda option: User Interface. From here, you can, for example, enlarge agenda argument so that it doesn’t attending tiny on a 4K monitor. (It additionally formed able-bodied for my QXD 2560×1440 display). The capital window’s ancillary panels can additionally be undocked or dismissed. The affairs includes sample images, so you’re not starting from zero. Additionally, the Complete workspace still includes the right-panel Acquirements Center, which helps you forth with abounding image-editing procedures.
You can zoom in or out to any deepening you choose, with a simple circuit of the abrasion wheel. There are 1:1 and Fit Angel to Window buttons in PaintShop, or you can zoom artlessly by spinning the abrasion wheel.
Unlike in Adobe Photoshop Elements, which has a abstracted Organizer app, you do aggregate in PaintShop in the aforementioned window, but you about-face modes for altered functions.
As its name suggests, Manage approach is breadth you adapt your photo collection. Like Photoshop, PaintShop is not a photo workflow application, alike admitting it includes accoutrement for acclimation and outputting. This is abnormally axiomatic back importing photos; it’s added a amount of artlessly aperture photos rather than importing them. PaintShop lacks the big Acceptation button you acquisition in workflow apps such as Adobe Lightroom. You can acceptation agreeable from a scanner, webcam, or antecedent versions of PaintShop, including not alone photos, but additionally brushes, gradients, and Account Tubes—as continued as it’s stored in the accepted folders.
For alignment and management, you can add brilliant ratings to photos, as able-bodied as tags for keywords, people, and places. You can additionally actualize collections, including Smart Collections of photos that accommodated defined criteria, such as date, name, or tags. Smart Collections let you specify criteria, such as argument in the book name or angel admeasurement to automatically actualize a Collection. PaintShop no best includes automated face acceptance feature—a affection Photoshop has additionally dropped.
On the larboard console is antecedent navigation, with folders and collections. In the centermost is your capital agreeable view—thumbnails, abounding image, or a map assuming photo locations based on GPS data. You can double-tap a thumbnail for a quick full-screen examination with options for rating, rotating, deleting, or ablution the angel in the editor. Images aren’t overwritten back you save edits; rather, they are adored in PaintShop’s own PSP format.
You can additionally save in Adobe PSD architecture (though you lose agent layers and added features), forth with dozens of added accepted angel formats. If you attainable a PSD book created in Photoshop, layers are preserved, and you can adapt them alone to taste. Afterwards, your edits are absolutely editable if you attainable the consistent PSD in Photoshop. What this agency is that if you’re alive with accession who uses Photoshop, you’ll be able to adapt compatibly in PaintShop, but if you alpha in PaintShop, they’ll alone see a bedfast adaptation of your file.
Though the Essentials workspace is acutely simplified, it retains frequently bare features, and you can add and abolish accoutrement to clothing your needs. There are still absolutely a cardinal of agenda choices forth the top—14 of them, compared with Photoshop’s 11 and Photoshop Elements’ 10. Like Photoshop, PaintShop lets you actualize custom workspaces, admitting the Adobe artefact offers six options by absence compared with PaintShop’s four. Photoshop Elements has Quick, Guided, and Expert modes, which can be anticipation of as workspaces.
On activity I acquisition odd about the Essentials workspace is that it’s missing the Manage button at the top that is begin in the added two workspaces.
When you aboriginal try to attainable a 360-degree angel book attempt on a camera like the GoPro Max, a chat asks whether you appetite to adapt it as 360-degree angel or to attainable for adjustments and effects. The closing doesn’t affect the geometry of the photo. Instead, you can dispense aloof the lighting and blush effects, as admitting it were a angled 2D photo. Doing so keeps it in 360 architecture with your lighting corrections, so you can still upload it to Facebook or added 360 viewers. Corel agreeably includes a few sample 360 files for experimentation.
Opening an angel in 360-degree approach presents a abstracted alteration window and an allegorical chat assuming what you can do with the book type. There are absolutely aloof four alteration options: Straighten, Abolish Tripod, 360-to-Panorama, and Planet effects. The aftermost two catechumen the angel from 360 to a accepted format, such as JPG, afterwards applying the effect.
The best advantageous apparatus is Straighten, which formed able-bodied in my testing. This advantage removes the aberrant curves of your 360-degree photo and lets you aces a examination bend for the consistent image. You can pan about with the abrasion or use slider controls for Pan, Tilt, Field of Appearance (zoom), and Rotate. Again you save your assignment as a accepted 2D photo in the architecture of your choice.
Remove Tripod switches your appearance to adverse down, breadth a tripod frequently would appear. You baddest the tripod with a circle, a chargeless alternative tool, or a square, and again administer Abracadabra Fill to bout the surrounding terrain. The Panorama advantage is mostly aloof a crop tool—it didn’t catechumen the angel to a accustomed attractive panorama, as the Straighten apparatus does.
The Planet furnishings accommodate Tiny planet and its opposite, Rabbit Hole. The apparatus formed accomplished on sample images.
One accessory acrimony with the 360-degree alteration window is that hitting Cancel afterwards one operation takes you out of the editor. I about capital to about-face from, say, Straighten to Panorama, but I had to alpha over instead.
PaintShop Pro includes auto-correction, forth with accoutrement like a histogram with lighting and blush controls. The One Footfall Photo Fix (available in all alteration workspaces) adapted lighting problems in abounding of my analysis photos. The Smart Photo Fix chat gives you a lot added control. You can bang a aloof atom to absolute the white antithesis and use a Levels slider to antithesis a askew histogram.
Smart Photo Fix additionally shows afore and afterwards angle so you can see the after-effects of your adjustments and edits. There’s additionally a Revert button at the basal of the corrections panel. Afterwards all, there are absolutely times back you’ve adapted a photo badly and aloof appetite to alpha over. Back and Forward buttons additionally advice with this.
PaintShop’s Furnishings agenda goes leagues accomplished the accustomed Instagram choices, but it does action Burning Furnishings that actor those. The Time Apparatus apparatus lets you see how your photo would attending if taken in 1839 through 1960. There are lots and lots of effects—Artistic, Film, B&W, arena lighting. Clicking on an effect, shows a examination of the alleged aftereffect ancillary by ancillary with your aboriginal image. If the bulk of furnishings isn’t abundant for you, you can download alike more.
Another gap is the abridgement of ascendancy over the effects. Sometimes you appetite to accent it bottomward a bit, as I begin with the Burning Becloud effect. Photoshop Elements’ burning furnishings are absolutely adjustable, but PaintShop’s aren’t.
Of course, you could fuss with the angel appliance the app’s added adjustments for lighting and color, but it’s nice to accept a slider that artlessly controls the effect’s strength, as alike Instagram does. Luckily, there are additionally Undo and Redo buttons, back applying furnishings can get messy. You can absolute the deejay amplitude acclimated by these, but otherwise, they’re unlimited. The affairs offers Autosave, with a minimum time amid saves of 15 minutes—a bit continued for my taste. Accession advice is the big Revert button, in case things accept gotten absolutely out of duke and you appetite to alpha over.
The best frequently acclimated photo alteration apparatus by far is the crop tool. It may assume that there’s annihilation to it, but Adobe supercharged Photoshop’s crop tool, alike abacus AI-powered auto-suggested agriculture (now additionally begin in Photoshop Elements). Corel continues to accord absorption to its own crop tool, too. It gives you a bigger abstraction of your final aftereffect by concealment the blow of the image. It offers overlays for agreement guides, including aureate spiral, aureate ratio, and aphorism of thirds. Back you circle with the tool, the crop box stays put while the angel rotates, so you can see the aftereffect afterwards angry your head.
These overlays are added than Elements offers (it lacks the aureate spiral, for example), and that affairs rotates the crop box instead of the image. But Elements adds some cool-cookie cutter crops like hearts and beastly shapes, and Adobe’s agriculture accoutrement about feel added acknowledging and absolutely controllable than Corel’s.
The Crop toolbar can administer auto-fix, burning effects, and depth-of-field (aka bokeh) effects. Those are hardly useful, as you’d apparently appetite to focus on them back you’re not cropping. My admired advantage on the Crop toolbar—not begin in Photoshop—is the Crop as New Angel choice, which instantly creates accession angel appliance the crop. The 2020 amend added a becloud filigree for the depth-of-field tool.
Let’s booty a added all-embracing attending at a few of PaintShop Pro’s newer, acknowledgment accoutrement abounding of which administer AI apparatus learning. I’ll attending at the newest of these that accustomed in the 2022 adaptation first.
AI Accomplishments Replacement. AI Accomplishments Replacement. Replacing a photo’s accomplishments acclimated to be a many-step, accidental action in Photoshop. That program, and now PaintShop accept both addled the calligraphy on that scenario, authoritative it a one-click affair. The AI Accomplishments Replacment apparatus in PaintShop works with animal subjects, while Photoshop and Skylum Luminar now accept accoutrement for alteration accomplishments skies in landscapes, too. The closing is still missing in PaintShop.
AI Accomplishments backup is not clashing appliance Photoshop’s Accountable Baddest tool, which instantly isolates and masks a animal (or alike nonhuman) accountable in your photo and lets you put whatever you appetite in the accomplishments layer. PaintShop does abridge the process, however, alms preset backgrounds.
You acquisition this apparatus in the Acclimatize > Artificial Intelligence menu, the ninth advantage down. I’m not abiding why it belongs there rather than in the Edit, Image, Effects, or Enhance Photo menu. Maybe an AI Accoutrement console would help? Note that you won’t acquisition the apparatus in the Photography workspace. In testing, it did a about absolute job, selecting me in a photo with a mural background. You can use a besom to refine, add to, and abolish alleged area, as well. You get altered appearance choices to see aloof how acceptable the alternative is, including white, black, or cellophane checkerboard.
In the abutting step, you can accept from several canned backgrounds (beaches, skies, or absorbing European artery scenes) or use your own accomplishments angel file.
AI Portrait Mode. AI Portrait Mode. I was assured AI face abetment accoutrement like those in ON1 and Photoshop, but this apparatus is absolutely aloof for selecting a accountable and abacus accomplishments blur. It works abundant like the iPhone’s Portrait mode. The affection of the aftereffect depends on the accurateness of the selection. The alternative wasn’t absolute for my analysis shot, but luckily you can abuse it. Back the aftereffect is assuming lens bokeh, it’s absorbing that you can accept amid annular and hexagonal apertures. I begin that appliance the closing with beneath feathering formed best.
Frame Tool. Anatomy Tool. This is like a collage tool, admitting it doesn’t accommodate preset layouts into which you can bead photos and added kinds of images. It’s added of a custom anatomy apparatus that handles band groups for you. Afterwards borer its toolbar button, you draw rectangles and ellipses and again bead the images assimilate them. Then, the apparatus creates the adapted band groups automatically. If you’re attractive for absolutely advised frames, arch to the Book > New from Template agenda option.
AI Denoise. AI Denoise. This apparatus assuages one of my peeves about photo editing—having to dabble with assorted sliders to abolish noise. The Corel apparatus analyzes the image, and admitting this takes time, the aftereffect is impressive, as you can see in the angel beneath (left ancillary is before, appropriate is after). You can annoyance the accomplishments about to position it to taste.
It’s adamantine to see, but the way it removed babble from the eye after-effects in a abundant added accustomed image. Ironically, admitting some accomplished detail is smoothed over the angel looks bluff because of the removed babble distortion. The affairs offers denoise accoutrement in assorted agenda options, but the AI adaptation is beneath Acclimatize > Artificial Intelligence. An Enhanced advantage button makes the action booty best to bear a bigger result, with beneath accident of detail. It reminds me of DxO’s PureRAW, which analogously trades acceleration for bigger results. Corel’s aren’t, however, as alarming as those delivered by DxO’s software.
AI Upsampling. AI Upsampling. We’ve all had to accord with an angel that was aloof too baby or low-resolution for the purpose at hand. This apparatus does a arresting job of removing that blocky aftereffect back you enlarge such photos. The larboard ancillary in the angel aloft shows those blocky artifacts, while the appropriate ancillary uses Corel’s AI Upsampling apparatus to aftermath a pleasing, bland result. The apparatus offers denoising at the aforementioned time, but I was able to get this aftereffect afterwards appliance any. Photoshop offers several sampling options for enlargement, but back I acclimated them on the aforementioned image, none of them produced a aftereffect as acceptable as this. They all still showed blockiness and antiquity distortion.
AI Antiquity Removal. AI Antiquity Removal. Designed decidedly for JPG angel compression, this apparatus seems to use agnate technology to the AI Upsampling apparatus above. Like AI Denoise, this is a one-click apparatus that shows a aesthetic full-screen action while it’s working. In my testing, the apparatus alone formed with one affectionate of distortion—blocks consistent from JPEG compression. Blotchier baloney isn’t corrected.
AI Appearance Transfer. AI Appearance Transfer. This is an aftereffect that an beforehand adaptation of PaintShop alleged Pic-to-Painting. It’s alone attainable in the minimalist Photography workspace forth with added furnishings in an Burning Furnishings panel. These furnishings resemble the Prisma-app chic of a few years ago, and accept appeared in abounding photo apps, conspicuously the aggressive CyberLink PhotoDirector. They use AI technology to accomplish art from your photos akin that of specific painters, such a Picasso or Van Gogh.
Corel includes a acceptable alternative of painterly and aesthetic furnishings by default, while CyberLink requires added downloading and accuse added for some of the effects. You can use a slider to acclimatize the backbone of the effect, for a amount of customization. The Photography interface lets you use the breach before-and-after view, apparent above.
Three sliders for Strength, Blush Bout (new with the 2022 version), and Bland Angel alone affect the baby examination thumbnail afore you administer the effect. One interface note: You charge to bifold tap on the aftereffect thumbnail to administer it, which isn’t attainable at first. Afterwards you do so, you see an at-first arrant action of constellations. I additionally encountered what seemed to be a bug: Afterwards applying one appearance alteration and again switching to another, the aboriginal one reappeared afterwards processing.
Sea-to-Sky. Sea-to-Sky. This bore looks absolutely like the Photography workspace, but it starts by assuming aloof four buttons: Corrective, Scenic, Low Light, and Creative. It’s alone attainable at the Ultimate level.
Pretty abundant every advantage bigger my underwater becloud shot, alike admitting the furnishings don’t accurately say “this one is for underwater, and this one is for bombinate shots.” A bombinate attempt I activated with was beneath successful—the furnishings were mostly aloof activated the altar on the ground, not to the sky. It did do a appropriate job of a bleared bombinate shot, admitting some blush casting was added.
For accomplished sky fixes, analysis out Skylum Luminar. The Aesthetic breadth offers some adorable B&W, Sepia, Flare, and Retro effects.
AI HDR Studio. AI HDR Studio. This apparatus is alone attainable with the Ultimate copy of PaintShop Pro. Corel absitively not to absolutely accommodate it with the alien program. It’s alone attainable as a constituent from the Furnishings > Plug-ins menu, and its interface architecture is altered from the blow of the program. It lets you do single-shot HDR effects, admitting the affairs supports acceptable multi-shot HDR as well.
As with AI Appearance Transfer, you artlessly accept a attending from a alternative of 16 sample thumbnails and acclimatize the aftereffect to taste. For me, the furnishings are a bit extreme, but cartoon bottomward the backbone slider can get you a added astute enhancement. Sadly, there’s no before/after breach awning appearance in this tool.
Once you move into Adapt mode, the abounding array of accoutrement comes into play. Aloof as in Photoshop, you can add layers, dispense aggregate objects, and acclimatize curves and levels. Layers are abundant bigger done than in ON1 Photo Raw, with a added Photoshop-like, bright appearance of anniversary band in an alternative panel. You can actualize Vector, Raster, Art Media, Mask, and Acclimation band types, with all the aggregate modes you’d expect.
The Curves apparatus is decidedly powerful, acceptance up to 16 ascendancy points, which let me actualize some crazy effects. The Retro lab makes up for Burning Effects’ abridgement of adaptability in a big way. It lets you acclimatize blur, diffuse, glow, color, and more.
Two alternative tools, Smart Alternative and Auto Selection, are agnate to Photoshop’s abracadabra wand. The aboriginal did a appropriate job of absolution me besom to actualize an edge-detected selection. But the Auto Alternative is added impressive. You draw a box, and the apparatus selects an article central it. In my testing, this alone formed with absolute compatible backgrounds (a bright sky, for example) and altar with categorical edges. Still, it’s a advantageous apparatus for plucking a arch off and appliance it adjoin a altered background. In the appropriate circumstances, it works absolutely well.
The Clarify Besom apparatus can fine-tune any alternative you’ve made. It’s able on difficult capacity like beard or timberline lines. Afterwards you accomplish a selection, a Clarify Besom button appears at top right. This opens an acclimation console that lets you set the tool’s size, smoothness, feathering, and border. You can appearance a red, black, or cellophane accomplishments to bigger see your selection. Back you’re done, achievement options accommodate selection, mask, new layer, and new affectation layer.
The apparatus did an accomplished job automatically selecting alone hairs in my testing. Adobe has fabricated a big accord about its new technology for selecting beard in portraits, but I don’t anticipate it’s decidedly bigger than Corel’s tool. If you baddest too much, a Abolish besom advantage lets you fix it.
Content-aware article abatement and affective is a contempo addition. This lets you advance agreement by affective or removing an article aural a photo, about a human, while advancement the background. For removal, you accept to baddest some accomplishments to alter the article with, so it’s not as automated as the agnate apparatus in Adobe Photoshop Elements. The carbon brand apparatus shows a examination breadth you’re about to administer it, and like all the accoutrement and brushes, the admeasurement slider is based on your angel size, which helps anticipate you from accepting a tiny besom back you charge to accomplish big changes, for example.
Smart Carbon lets you accept a appearance from the top toolbar to baddest an breadth for cloning, and again accept a alloy approach (Blend, Original, or Atramentous and White) to actuate how the cloned angel will arise back you brand it on article else. The carbon is attainable absolute for backyard back you accomplishment selecting. You can additionally now save carbon selections as presets for reclaim later.
For aesthetic types, PaintShop Pro offers added affidavit not to pay Adobe annual cable fees, with its abounding blush palettes, brushes, gradients, account tubes, and textures.
These are attainable from the Materials panel, and editable in the Materials Properties dialog. You get patterns and textures as able-bodied as gradients. And you can download added from Corel. It’s at atomic as acceptable as what you get with Adobe Photoshop Elements, but not absolutely as always tweakable as Photoshop.
One air-conditioned adequacy in PaintShop is the adeptness to actualize your own custom besom tips. I acclimated a baby angel of the banderole of Canada for this. Accession adequacy that will be acceptable to users of graphics architecture software is the program’s abutment for agent graphics, including SVG files (import only). You can alike mix agent and raster angel layers in the aforementioned file. But don’t apprehend all the admirable accoutrement you get in Adobe Illustrator, such as the Puppet Warp apparatus for intelligently and automatically transforming cartoon accommodation and positions.
When you alpha Adapt approach with a raw camera book loaded, PaintShop opens the Lab interface, which is a lot like Photoshop’s agnate Camera Raw window. Actuality you can not alone change the white antithesis and balance highlights, but additionally administer lens-profile-based corrections for bright abnormality and vignetting. I’m not afflicted with PaintShop’s adaptation of lens contour correction. I still didn’t see any alteration of geometric distortion, and vignette alteration overcompensated in some analysis photos. Bright abnormality wasn’t removed automatically, but the affairs has a acceptable apparatus for this in the Complete Alteration interface. Best lens contour alteration depends on bodies creating the profiles, so it’s not an exact science. DxO PhotoLab excels at this blazon of correction.
Some of the adjustments in this allotment of the program—particularly babble abridgement and Balanced Highlight Recovery—are still slower than the equivalents in Lightroom and Photoshop. In contempo releases, Corel has fabricated an accomplishment to acceleration up a lot of the program’s best accepted functions and in its startup time, and it does feel added responsive. Finally, you don’t get several of the adjustments Adobe Camera Raw offers, including,
The Lab accustomed raw files from my earlier Canon EOS 6D with a 24-105 zoom lens, but additionally from a Nikon Z 7 with a 24-70mm f/4 S lens, so abutment is adequately up to date. It alike was able to attainable a CR3 raw book from the Canon EOS R. For automated bright abnormality correction, you’re abundant bigger off with Lightroom or DxO PhotoLab. Back I alien shots from a Canon Rebel T3i, a absolute model, the automated lens-profile fixes didn’t visibly absolute geometry distortions at the bend of the picture.
Project Templates. Project Templates. PaintShop’s templates are a benefaction to non-designers who aloof charge to actualize a card, collage, or brochure. They’re absolutely aloof advised band groups, into which you annoyance your own images. The downside is that abounding amount a few bucks, admitting some are free.
Screen Capture. Screen Capture. I usually use Shift-Windows key–S for my awning capturing with the Snip & Sketch tool. Corel’s does let you use a hotkey and a timer delay, which I accede essential, but clashing SnagIt’s, it doesn’t assignment in the background. You accept to attainable the affairs and acquaint it to adapt to booty the screenshot. It does action several abduction styles, including one that lets you baddest the ellipsoidal breadth you appetite to shoot with the mouse. I adopt a abstracted screenshot tool, but if you appetite to abduction and alpha alteration appropriate away, PaintShop’s affection does the job.
Text Tools.Text Tools. Entering argument was delay-free in my testing. Argument capabilities accommodate superscript, subscript, and justification. The chic Paste-to-Fit advantage lets your argument bout a appearance in your image. It’s not absolutely as air-conditioned as Photoshop Elements’ adeptness to blanket argument about a arced appearance in your image, however. You can alveolate out argument and actualize raster cutouts, which is a able effect. But for absolutely absorbing chantry work, PaintShop can’t attempt with Photoshop, which lets you blend with the absolute appearance shapes appliance glyphs and administer furnishings like 3D extrusion.
Windows Stylus.Windows Stylus. PaintShop Pro supports Windows Real-Time Stylus (WinRTS) and WinTab-based devices, such as the pen that comes with the Surface band of convertible PCs. I activated this on a Surface Book, and absolutely I was able to draw, complete with burden sensitivity. You can additionally use the pen for any airheaded and settings. As mentioned, though, the Complete interface workspace isn’t well-adapted to touch-screen input, with some agonizingly baby controls.
From Adapt mode’s Book menu, you can consign to all the accepted formats; JPEG, GIF, and PNG optimizers and an angel slicer are advantageous account for web producers. Printing options abound, too, with CMYK separations, and accepted blueprint presets. It alike offers soft-proofing with a avant-garde array of printer profiles in the Blush Administration settings.
For online sharing, PaintShop can attainable your email applicant and attach your image. Corel has removed the absolute amusing administration appearance back the amusing networks accumulate alteration their APIs. Like Photoshop, PaintShop lets you optimize images for affectation on webpages.
Help and tutorials for the appliance are aces of mention. Unfortunately, the advice has confused to the web, so you can’t admission it if you’re alive offline. But it covers every affection in the app and lets you calmly acquisition the affair you’re attractive for. Video tutorials do a acceptable job of assuming you how to use all the new appearance and accomplish accepted edits, and there’s a Acquirements Centermost console that takes you through appearance appropriate in the program.
Corel PaintShop Pro is a high-bang-for-the-buck Photoshop substitute, acute no annual subscription. The app gets credibility for the arduous cardinal of accoutrement it throws at you, abounding of which abundantly actor their Photoshop counterparts—that alike goes for some avant-garde accoutrement like content-aware move, gradients, and aftereffect filters. PaintShop additionally lets you actualize and adapt both raster and agent images, which requires two Adobe apps.
For photographers beneath absorbed in beheld arts and crafts, our photo workflow Editors’ Best winner, Lightroom Classic, is a bigger choice. The $99.99 Adobe Photoshop Elements, our Editors’ Best aces for enthusiast photo software, offers abounding of Adobe’s incomparable photo-manipulation accoutrement and a abundant alternative of guided adapt effects. Because it still is the accompaniment of the art, Photoshop charcoal PCMag’s angel alteration Editors’ Best winner, but Windows-using pros who charge that program’s more-common accoutrement are acceptable to be annoyed with this account option.
