This review is from: Corel PaintShop Pro X6 Ultimate
Provides an endless number of powerful tools. Everything is organized very well. Look and feel of the software is professional. More affordable than Photoshop, but can do just as much or more. Great community with lots of resources and assistance. Recommend for photographers, editors, graphic designers, and artists of all skill levels.
In the 32-bit version, some of the resource-intensive tools do show a slight drop in rendering speed when compared to Photoshop. Just be sure to use the 64-bit version and performance matches or beats Photoshop. Sometimes this software has trouble with the fact that I have two HD graphics cards (even though they are the same), but so does Photoshop, so that's more of a problem with my machine than with the software. I just disable the secondary graphics driver and it behaves fine again.
I tried to make this review informative, but there are so many more pros than cons in this software that it's hard to keep an un-biased opinion! I have plenty of experience in Photoshop CS5, Photoshop CC, and Corel Paint Shop Pro. I've been using Paint Shop Pro since version X12, and by now I have stopped using Photoshop altogether. I do graphic design as a hobby, and photography for friends and events. I found that I can get the same end-results I can in Photoshop using this software, and with less effort than is needed for Photoshop. Tools are easier to find and identify than they are in Photoshop, and I find it a lot more intuitive and fun to use in general. Pick this software whenever you're ready to start getting professional results!
