Paint Shop Pro 6 Keygen

Awful program. Interface is kludgy and poorly designed, not as bad as Adobe, but trying to imitate that app destroyed what was Paint Shop's best feature -- ease of use. One of the most buggy apps I've ever used. Almost as bad as Pinnacle, in that class in terms of bad code. Won't load, takes forever to load, freezes, won't let you save work. A total mess. I thought X2, X3, X4 were bad. This is the worst. I've quit Corel and moved to Photoshop, which I detest. It's that bad.

Updaqte as at 29th October re Corel Paint Shop Pro X5 and AfterShot Pro. Both products still exhibit drastic vignetting / distortion when downloading wide angle RAW files taken with Canon G1X. Finally Corel have closed this file , as they said "...due to no activity for the last 10 days... Interesting !! there was no communication from Corel during tha t time that any action from their end was contemplated. I have tested both Lightroom 4 and Photoshop Elements 11 - these two Adobe products appear to handle these files correctly. I'd be interested to hear of anyone else who've experienced similar problems with these Corel products. p.s. A letter (not email) was forwarded to the company's head office some time ago - at the time of posting to this forum (surprise, surprise) I have received no response.

Paintshop Pro X4 is just buggy! First it takes about 20 seconds to open up, when it does open up correctly, then occasionally, it will not completely load and crash.Seeing from other users here, why should I take a chance with X5?Since I purchased X4, I have not seen one update to correct for the bugs, and I have not read that X5 corrected these bugs.I may buy it second-hand on ebay, when people start selling it, if it's cheap enough.P.S. I run WinXP on a virus-free Quad speed cpu desktop and have 4gb of memory and plenty of room on my hard drive!

Worse, the program actually makes you think that you can save a 16-bit TIF, but if I then take the saved TIF and look at the histogram, I find that there are only 256 distinct levels of RGB information, not 65,536 (using the "wide histogram" plugin in Photoshop, or the freeware application "Histogrammar").

Apologies if we are not talking about the same thing but if you go into PSP's "Color Management" setup under "File" you can work in any color space you have installed on your PC, including Adobe RGB and Pro. You can choose converting your image to that space or assigning it etc. I usually work in aRGB with PSP or even in the uniquely defined color space of my wide gamut monitor and no problems at all. My only complaint is that color management is not implemented as conveniently as in Photoshop. For example, to change color space you must close all open images ... a nuisance when you must do it but I seldom change my color space preference anyway.

For Adobe it's simple - Apple invested in Adobe and Photoshop started on Mac. Then, once you have product core working it's relatively easy to add new features to both Windows and Mac versions.For Corel Mac support would be like development of a new product from scratch.

There are apparently no solid figures available for Macs in use worldwide -- Apple probably knows but isn't talking -- but estimates exist that 80-million Macs (and perhaps up to 100-million when you include older, pre-Intel chip versions) are currently in use. Not too shabby. Corel makes a pretty fine product, and yes, it would take a lot of R&D to gear up a Mac version of PaintShop, but that could mean MILLIONS of copies sold to the Mac creative community on a continuing basis, who are sick of paying $600-$900 for the bloated and overpriced Adobe Photoshops. If you were the CEO of Corel, why wouldn't you start down that road, knowing that the market is just sitting there waiting? Come on Corel, it's the 21st Century --get over the anti-Mac 1980's huff and climb on board!

The one-time purchase options are a good fit for those who still resent Adobe's move to a subscription-only model 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 editing software, requires no subscription, but that software has more of a hobbyist feel, as opposed to the company's pro-level offerings.

The Ultimate version adds a Highlight Reel video slideshow-creating feature (similar to the one in Corel VideoStudio), MultiCam Capture Lite for screen and webcam video presentations, Painter Essentials 8 for simple drawing, sketching, and painting on the PC.

You can also save in Adobe PSD format (though you lose vector layers and other features), along with dozens of other standard image formats. If you open a PSD file created in Photoshop, layers are preserved, and you can edit them separately to taste. Afterwards, your edits are fully editable if you open the resulting PSD in Photoshop. What this means is that if you're working with someone who uses Photoshop, you'll be able to edit compatibly in PaintShop, but if you start in PaintShop, they'll only see a flattened version of your file.

Another gap is the lack of control over the effects. Sometimes you want to tone it down a bit, as I found with the Instant Film effect. Photoshop Elements' instant effects are indeed adjustable, but PaintShop's aren't.

The most commonly used photo editing tool by far is the crop tool. It may seem that there's nothing to it, but Adobe supercharged Photoshop's crop tool, even adding AI-powered auto-suggested cropping (now also found in Photoshop Elements). Corel continues to give attention to its own crop tool, too. It gives you a better idea of your final result by darkening the rest of the image. It offers overlays for composition guides, including golden spiral, golden ratio, and rule of thirds. When you rotate with the tool, the crop box stays put while the image rotates, so you can see the result without tilting your head.

AI Background Replacement. Replacing a photo's background used to be a many-step, hit-or-miss process in Photoshop. That program, and now PaintShop have both flipped the script on that scenario, making it a one-click affair. The AI Background Replacment tool in PaintShop works with human subjects, while Photoshop and Skylum Luminar now have tools for changing background skies in landscapes, too. The latter is still missing in PaintShop.

AI Background replacement is not unlike using Photoshop's Subject Select tool, which instantly isolates and masks a human (or even nonhuman) subject in your photo and lets you put whatever you want in the background layer. PaintShop does simplify the process, however, offering preset backgrounds.

AI Portrait Mode. I was expecting AI face manipulation tools like those in ON1 and Photoshop, but this tool is really just for selecting a subject and adding background blur. It works much like the iPhone's Portrait mode. The quality of the result depends on the accuracy of the selection. The selection wasn't perfect for my test shot, but luckily you can tweak it. Since the effect is simulating lens bokeh, it's interesting that you can choose between round and hexagonal apertures. I found that using the latter with less feathering worked best.

AI Upsampling. We've all had to deal with an image that was just too small or low-resolution for the purpose at hand. This tool does a remarkable job of removing that blocky effect when you enlarge such photos. The left side in the image above shows those blocky artifacts, while the right side uses Corel's AI Upsampling tool to produce a pleasing, smooth result. The tool offers denoising at the same time, but I was able to get this result without using any. Photoshop offers several sampling options for enlargement, but when I used them on the same image, none of them produced a result as good as this. They all still showed blockiness and artifact distortion.

AI Style Transfer. This is an effect that an earlier version of PaintShop called Pic-to-Painting. It's only available in the minimalist Photography workspace along with other effects in an Instant Effects panel. These effects resemble the Prisma-app craze of a few years ago, and have appeared in many photo apps, notably the competing CyberLink PhotoDirector. They use AI technology to generate art from your photos resembling that of specific painters, such a Picasso or Van Gogh.

Corel includes a good selection of painterly and artistic effects by default, while CyberLink requires extra downloading and charges extra for some of the effects. You can use a slider to adjust the strength of the effect, for a degree of customization. The Photography interface lets you use the split before-and-after view, seen above.

Once you move into Edit mode, the full assortment of tools comes into play. Just as in Photoshop, you can add layers, manipulate grouped objects, and adjust curves and levels. Layers are much better done than in ON1 Photo Raw, with a more Photoshop-like, clear view of each layer in an optional panel. You can create Vector, Raster, Art Media, Mask, and Adjustment layer types, with all the blending modes you'd expect.

Two selection tools, Smart Selection and Auto Selection, are similar to Photoshop's magic wand. The first did a decent job of letting me brush to create an edge-detected selection. But the Auto Selection is more impressive. You draw a box, and the tool selects an object inside it. In my testing, this only worked with very uniform backgrounds (a clear sky, for example) and objects with well-defined edges. Still, it's a useful tool for plucking a head off and using it against a different background. In the right circumstances, it works quite well.
