Corel Paint Shop Pro Photo X2 Supports Microsoft HD Photo

Corel Paint Shop Pro Photo X2

Corel Paint Shop Pro Photo X2 now provides fully integrated support for the Microsoft HD Photo file format. Corel is an early adopter of HD Photo which is on its way to becoming the new industry standard JPEG XR image format.

Says Denise MacDonell, Director, Product Management, Digital Media at Corel, “This allows us to offer our users the many benefits of raw camera formats while removing the complexity created by camera-specific raw formats. And by including HD Photo as a native format produced by the camera when a photo is taken, camera manufacturers can participate in creating a new industry standard that will deliver an improved user experience. Rather than having to worry about camera-specific formats, customers will be able to focus their attention on the image they want to capture.”

HD Photo/JPEG XR offers the ability to retain all of the rich data from RAW files in a convenient, finished file format. It is expected to replace the aging JPEG which is still in use today 15 years after it was first introduced.
