Corel Corporation and Lexar Media Inc. are offering the full version of Corel Paint Shop Pro for free download to buyers of select Lexar Professional flash memory cards, while the full version of Corel Snapfire Plus (Standard Edition) will be available for download free of charge with purchase of select Lexar Platinum II and Standard flash memory cards.
Corel Paint Shop Pro is a competent alternative to Photoshop with all the bells and whistles to organize, edit and enhance digital images. (Corel used to be up there in image editing before they lost marketing ground to Adobe; the competence and talent, happily, are still there.)
Corel Snapfire Plus SE, on the other hand, is more of a digital album where users can enhance photos and videos for sharing via the Internet.
With Corel in tandem with Lexar, the two hope to strike a synergy that could enhance both their market positions.
