Corel Announces New VideoStudio Pro X2, Paint Shop Pro Photo X2 Ultimate

Corel VideoStudio Pro X2 & Paint Shop Pro Photo X2 Ultimate Bundle

Corel Corporation has announced new versions of their Corel VideoStudio Pro X2 and Corel Paint Shop Pro Photo X2 Ultimate (geez, you can’t hope to compete with Photoshop with a name like that!).

Corel’s upgrade of VideoStudio Pro X2 provides consumers with what the company calls a complete HD solution for video editing and authoring. VideoStudio Pro X2 also includes the all-new Painting Creator to add creative flare to video projects, new sharing tools to upload videos directly to YouTube and mobile devices, as well as offering improved ease-of-use and performance enhancements.

The other software, Paint Shop Pro Photo X2 Ultimate (c’mon, Corel, make it simple and make it bite!) now supports more than 250 raw camera formats, making it easier for users to edit photos taken with the most popular camera models. There’s also a new Creative Content Pack, new Background Remover and it’s now certified for Windows Vista (only now?)

VideoStudio Pro X2 and Paint Shop Pro Photo X2 Ultimate are available separately for $100; buy them in a bundle and you pay only $150.
