Craig..I am sure you will be the first to buy...let me know what you think after you have tested. I'm still using version 9 and still love it.

Re: Corel Paint Shop Pro Photo X2

skydog, actually, i may sit this one out. that's why i'm asking questions here. i normally buy every other version. but, on the last couple of psp's i've bought every version. but, i'm not seeing a big incentive on this one... so far.

Re: Corel Paint Shop Pro Photo X2

I don't know if this code is still valid, but it takes 40% off: UG40OFFSEP (Worked only on US store, and got it without problems even that i live outside of USA)

My short experience that it's faster than previous version and more stable. Haven't really tested the new features.

Re: Corel Paint Shop Pro Photo X2

I still am checking it out, but I like the different brush functions in one group.

Re: Corel Paint Shop Pro Photo X2

Am still pondering this one too.

But I have a question. PSP has been coming with tutorials included with the last couple of versions. These are Quick Time, and since I don't have Quick Time I have to now download and install this huge player just to see the tuts and "how to's" for PSP X2. Will someone explain to me why these are not also available in a format that will play on Windows media player which just about everyone has?

Re: Corel Paint Shop Pro Photo X2

I've been playing with X2 for nearly 2 weeks.

My take:

*Opens faster
* Better Organizer than previous editions
* MUCH MORE STABLE haven't' experienced one crash or freeze
* Like the fact that you can save the original automatically
* like graphite interface easier on the eyes
* like the HDR capabilities
* like the upgrade to the levels & curves tools (shows original and changed)
* like the new layer styles

There are some improvements to old tools and they seem better for them. These aren't by any means all the improvements or advances to PS Pro it's just the one I feel are important.

If you use Paint Shop Pro version XI you may want to upgrade for stability reasons. If you have an earlier version then upgrading is really dependent upon your need for the newer tools.

To be sure if it's for you download and try XI it plays well with other versions.

Re: Corel Paint Shop Pro Photo X2

chillin, version xi has that also.

steve, no idea, but i agree; why not use the media player everyone with windows has rather than the one everyone with apple has?

geru, havent had a lot of problems with crashes, but enough that i can appreciate that. the HDR interests me. what are the upgrades to levels and curves? i hope they didnt change clone or push. it is soundling a little better.
