Re: Corel Paint Shop Pro Photo X2

That shows how often I used that software (xi), but perhaps of its very "laggy" behavior...especially during extensive masking.
I'll get better with this one.

Re: Corel Paint Shop Pro Photo X2

May be interested in this one. The more I read the better it sounds.

Would like to know if anyone has installed it with a JASC version, (version 9 or earlier), and are they compatable? I am not ready to remove 9 from my PC as of yet even if I install X2.

Also, does X2 still allow you to enter paths for plugins etc.? I want to be able to route it to pick up plugins from the same place that 9 does.

One thing I look for in every upgrade is the addition of more photo art filters like Impressionist, Snap Art, Buzz and the like. These seem to always have to be purchased as plugins. Maybe they would have to increase the price too much in a program like PSP to do this, but I use this type of thing so much it would be nice to have more of it included.

Re: Corel Paint Shop Pro Photo X2

I tried it on my laptop Win XP and it was so slow. I tried to install it on my desktop Vista , it will not install, therefore I will not buy it. I have bought PSP since version 4 and upgraded each time til version 10. I didn't like version 11 either.

Re: Corel Paint Shop Pro Photo X2

Thanks for the heads-up on this one! I am expecting a copy to try out soon. I first tried PSP at version X1 (being a Mac user I never gave it much thought, but it runs great on Intel Mac hardware under a virtual OS with 1 gig RAM allotted to XP).

I was not familiar with earlier versions of PSP so X1 was impressive enough for what I need to do in Windows ;-).

Re: Corel Paint Shop Pro Photo X2

Hi! Here's my take on X2:

1.I'ts a bit buggy on my comp. It has crashed quite a few times where XI has not.
2. If you do somthing in X2 and save it as compatible with 9 you loose your layers.
3. It's great that they put back the labels in the save/load selections.
4. The granite taskbar is great on the eyes.
5. It is faster than XI.
