Corel Paint Shop Pro Photo X2

Cliff Smith at has just taken a good look at Corel Paint Shop Pro Photo X2, took note about how it installs and how it performs, and came up with a Recommended rating for the image editing software, a very good 9 out of 10 score.

He writes, “Corel Paint Shop Pro keeps getting better and better, and with the launch of Photo X2 it is now a very close second to the vastly more expensive Adobe Photoshop. It has a large range of advanced features, an attractive and easy-to-follow interface and installs and runs smoothly on medium-spec PCs. Unless you need full 16-bit editing it really is a much better choice.”

With its price of $100 against Photoshop’s $650, Corel Paint Shop Pro Photo X2 should make a very good choice even for many professional photographers.
