Easier and more intuitive to use. My opinion.
I purchased Paint Shop Pro and you are right. It is a LOT more user friendly.

I have the face looking pretty good but having trouble with the shawl/coat or whatever it is she is wearing.
I tried replacing it but everything I do looks like a paper doll cutout.

Maybe when my books get here I will be able to finish it.

Thanks again for your help.

Ed

I started out using both and wound up focusing on Paint Shop Pro
because it felt more natural and easy when working with the basic functions.

There are times I switch over to do something extravagant but not often.
Lots of books for Photo Shop but with Paint Shop, I never felt the need.

Re: Is it too far gone?

nice job, aartist

i also use paint shop pro for most all of my work. i have photoshop cs3, but dont even have it installed currently. i've also used the gimp and gimpshop. neither were as intuitive and as easy to work with as psp. but, i'm not a graphic artist, either and dont really need the advanced functions of photoshop that much... most of the time

and btw, jspitter, ed, welcome to RP

Thanks, Kraellin. Always glad to know someone else feels the same way I do about a certain piece of software.

Very thankful to have found this website recently. Never would have thought a site like this existed. I've enjoyed looking at the different photo challenges and results that everyone has uploaded. It certainly tells you, no one way is the right way.

Re: Is it too far gone?

Hello All

since its an old photo, i decided to go with the "painting style".
it took me a lot of patching, healing, and cloning
