Re: Paint Shop Pro vs Photoshop

Steve,

Thank you very much for your insights. Now I am really curious. I am getting PSP for Dummies from the library today. Just want to see what PSP does in comparison to what I know about Photoshop. Last night I went to a site with PSP tutorials and I saw quite a bit of Photoshop in PSP. When I asked the question I never thought that I would get so much information from so many people.

Thanks to everyone for the input.

Re: Paint Shop Pro vs Photoshop

I like Paint Shop Pro, but the 11th is a memory hungry beast, slows down a lot. Photoshop manages the RAM much better. The best version of Paint Shop Pro was 9 the worst 10, the 11 is OK I use it for certain things that the Photoshop can't do

Re: Paint Shop Pro vs Photoshop

Surprised to hear that PSP can do something that Photoshop can't. Would it be too much of a problem to briefly indicate what it is that a $600.00 program cannot do that an $80.00 one can? Quite possible that is a very naive question but my curiousity is getting the best of me.

Re: Paint Shop Pro vs Photoshop

I use PSP 9 and am quite happy with it. But here's an option.
Go to www.corel.com and download the trial version of PSP Photo XI.

I tried it and liked it but there weren't enough differences to make it really worth upgrading right now. It is pretty memory intensive and I have an older system that is limited to 1 gig of Ram.

As far as tutorials on the web, there are tons of them, you just have to sort through all the cutesy stuff to get to the meat.

The newsgroups on the Corel site are frequented by numerous experts that are more than glad to help or point people to where they can find help. There is a pretty active community there, especially in the Photography and PSP X & XI groups.

But if Price is a consideration, there is always "The Gimp", which is Open Source. I've played around with it some out of curiosity and it seems to be fairly comprehensive. Free is Good :>

Take care, Keith Hailey

Actually photoshop does have that feature although I'd say the PSP version is a little bit better.

Elements 3 (which is what my wife has) can't do masks on a raster layer. It does, however, do masks on adjustment layers.

For another $30, however, you can buy a book called "hidden power of photoshop elements" which includes a disk that lets you get access to masks by running an action.

Re: Paint Shop Pro vs Photoshop

Yes indeed... you’re right Bart. I like to use “Topaz DeJPEG” when I’m in Photoshop.
