Corel has launched a â€˜before and afterâ€™ photo retouching competition to promote their Paint Shop Pro Photo XI imaging software.
Nope, you canâ€™t use Photoshop; they want you to discover that thereâ€™s actually a very good alternative to that 800-pound gorilla; itâ€™s very competent and a lot more affordable.
The Corel Paint Shop Pro Photo XI â€˜before & afterâ€™ competition dangles a Canon EOS 400D (Rebel XTi) DSLR Camera as the grand prize, with two runner up prizes of a Wacom Bamboo graphic tablet and a box of Corel Paint Shop Pro Photo XI.
You donâ€™t even have to shoot any photos. Just go over your most dreadful photos that did not make it to your photo album, edit and enhance it using Paint Shop Pro Photo XI and submit.
You donâ€™t have Paint Shop Pro? That’s alright, you can get it for free; just download a 30-day trial version of the software and use it. Corel even has tutorials on how to fix photos thrown in also for free.
