1 out of 5 eggsMissing Activation Code - Poor Customer Service

Pros: No pros, because after owning the software for 5 days I am still unable to use it without an activation code.

Cons: Without the activation code the product is unusable.

Other Thoughts: Right after getting the software I sent Newegg an email letting them know the activation code was missing. They responded with a list of things they needed and the additional input that I could contact Corel directly for help. (They even supplied a link). I contacted Corel and after several days of back and forth I got an email telling me I needed to go back to Newegg. It's not their problem.

5 days later I'm right back where I started and waiting on Newegg to tell me what I need to do. (Which they're taking their sweet time about).

I guess this is the last time I order anything at Newegg.

5 out of 5 eggsMissing Activation Code!

Pros: I've been using the trial of this for a couple of weeks playing with HDR. Fun program and saves $ over competitors. I got it with a great rebate.

Cons: Box didn't come with the activation code. Pretty useless if I can't activate the software.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Software Great Price

Pros: easy to use, can do most editing tasks, fun to make hdr photos, works with layers and raw files which is a big plus at this price point. Bought this during a sale for next to nothing (assuming my rebate comes through!)

Cons: I was first introduced to PSP 7 and was using PSP 9 before upgrading to X4. I actually miss the old layout and window color scheme. Also, sometimes instead of simply giving an error, the whole program decides to crash when you try to do something unintended like hdr merging tiff files.

Other Thoughts: I've experimented with photoshop and will admit it's a powerful piece of software but it takes time and training. 90% of what can be done in photoshop can be done with paintshop pro at a fraction of the price and without months of training!

3 out of 5 eggsAverage software

Pros: The price, it's much much cheaper than Adobe's products, and you have all your basic photo editing needs met here.

Cons: Every single Adobe product out there is better, if you are looking for a cheap alternative to PhotoShop, this is it, but it is just not even half as good, you have most of the basic features available here, but if you want to take your editing just a tad beyond the very basics, you need to buy photoshop.

5 out of 5 eggsFree

Pros: It was free, Thanks rebate!! Seems to work when I do use it.

Cons: Don't use it enough.

Other Thoughts: I got this because it was free. Rebate took about 3 months to get.

1 out of 5 eggsbeware of Corel rebates!!!

Pros: Very capable

Cons: Very cluttered interface, in most cases at least one more level/click compared to the Photoshop.

Took me a year to get the rebate through their Indian CS - they denied everything, gave all rounds around from the book and when it finally came, adding and insult to the injury it was in "Canadian funds". Guess their promotion department added these pennies saved on the exchange rate to their Christmas bonus...

5 out of 5 eggsCorel Paintshop Pro X4

Pros: A lot of different things you can do here; I like working with this program along with my CS5. Heck, for free with MIR, and free s/h, how can I complain.

Cons: MIR! Just would like my rebate sometime! No real con's, I'm sure I'll get it.

5 out of 5 eggsCorel Paintshop Pro X4

Pros: Free after rebate!!!Awesome! It's actually great to use with photoshops cs5 and Lightroom. Some of the items in this program is actually easier than CS5(sorry Adobe) But, I like CS5 for others. So, it's nice to have your cake and eat it too! LOL

Cons: none.

Other Thoughts: I personally don't mind using 3 different photo editing software programs, so, and heck, for free, how can you go wrong?

4 out of 5 eggsLong time user

Pros: Good Promotion price, even better (FREE) after rebate!!!
Fast shipping
Feature packed program for a fraction of Photoshop.

Cons: User interface is cluttered and confusing

Other Thoughts: I started using the JASC version (ver 2 or 3) that I had to download with dial up many years ago (anybody remember "digital river"). I've used v4 for the last several years. The new user interface is dramatically different, so I'll have to get used to it, but the functionality is much enhanced as it better be after 7 major revisions.

The free Winzip is of no interest as I'm one of those that purchased that before Corel and was supposed to get free lifetime upgrades - which, after purchasing the rights to, Corel refused to honor. No biggie - PSP is why I bought it and with the free after rebate offer - it was a no brainer.

5 out of 5 eggsConfusing

Pros: It's gonna be free after rebate!

Cons: Yes, it's a pain to install if using the trial version. In fact if you have a trial version, get rid of it by using windows to uninstall. Use the boxed install disc and enter the activation code as the serial when asked and include the dashes!

Other Thoughts: Yep, a little bit of a pain, but I think this is one of the best photo editors around and have used it since JASC.
