Jasc Paint Shop Pro

AdvantagesCreate Web Design and Graphics, Red eye correction & more

Disadvantagesmaybe the cost would shock a few people, that is until they realise just how great the program is!

"...about the features of Jasc Paint Shop Pro. I will now list the features that I use the most, as explaining what I don’t use wouldn’t leave much up to my opinion now would it? so here goes... Image Mapper - This is nice and possibly what I use it for the most; I will create sidebars for websites with the relevant graphics on it then use this to separate it up into linkable sections, or Image Map it. Whenever you are on the internet and ..." Read review

The Digital Artist's Best Friend.

AdvantagesPowerful, Cheap, Easy to use.

DisadvantagesNothing worth mentioning!

"I've been using Paint Shop Pro in it's various versions since about 1995, Version 7 is without doubt the best version by far, and it's amazing to see this product come from a limited shareware program to one of the best graphics packages around. You can manipulate graphics for any purpose in PSP7, but two of the main uses of a graphics package nowadays are probably Photo enhancement, and Web design. I'm going to give you a quick run down of what ..." Read review

Graphical Production at Your Fingertips

AdvantagesRelatively cheap, easy-to-use, wide range of features.

DisadvantagesHas some advanced limitations.

"PaintShop Pro 7 (PSP7) is a very popular piece of graphical production software. It is cited that 20 million people use this software, so one could say it must be good. It has a diverse range of features, offering something for everyone, so to speak and retails for about £60. For a private 'home' user, PSP7 will allow you to edit, retouch and revamp exisiting photographs. For an advanced user or web developer, this program will allow you to ..." Read review

Work with a pro

Advantagesgreat graphics, animations

Disadvantagestakes a bit of getting used to

"...edit all my pictures in Paint Shop Pro which allows me to change the lighting of a picture, the texture, contrast and so on. I have used other programs but this one to me is the best. It is also a great program for working with and creating graphics and animations. It is not a program you can just install and work right away. It does take some study and learning as to how every thing operates but great instructions come with it. The program ..." Read review

PSP 7 - What an upgrade.

AdvantagesNew and advanced tools

DisadvantagesQuite Pricey (around £95)

"...actually listened to the answers. Paint Shop Pro 7 has achieved the right balance between the 'click here and this will happen' beginners and the 'I want total control' professional. Version 6 was a major leap forward and although not quite such a leap, version 7 has quite a few tricks up its sleeve.The developers have recognised that the user is not always going to be a novice an have built a learning curve into the program. The new automatic adjustment ..." Read review

Its art for Art.

AdvantagesA good tool

Disadvantagesnot cheap enough

"To me, Paint Shop Pro is simply the best and most affordable image design package available on the market today. What makes it so good is that it appeals to such a wide range of users. Its price of about £70 from the download web site ($99) or £77 for the boxed CD ($109) is affordable to anyone who is considering buying one of the finest tools in its category on the market. If you visit the home page of PSP 7, its maker JASC, have a very nice ..." Read review

Paint Shop Pro 7 - Still going Strong. Review with images

AdvantagesGreat Grpahics Package, It is now older :. Cheap!

DisadvantagesLacks the Power of newer releases.

"Paint Shop Pro 7 is now a couple of years old and has been superseded by Paint Shop Pro 8 and 9. This version of Paint Shop Pro though, remains special and cleared the way for the constant progress seen in 8 and 9, and finally broke the quality barrier between PSP and Adobe Photoshop, but still holds the name as the ‘Poor Mans Photoshop.’ First you may ask, “there are newer versions of this program, why bother reviewing it?” Well, Paint Shop ..."

The general working environment hasn't really changed, but many features have been added, loads have been improved and it is generally a lot than I thought it would be.

Paint Shop Prose

AdvantagesPower for Pounds

DisadvantagesNone to speak of

"This opinion is really of Paint Shop Pro 7 Anniversary Edition which is the last incarnation of the package before the release of instalment number 8. Added to the original deal are an array of plug-in filters that increase the power of this remarkable piece of software even further. Also included is the excellent Animation Shop 3, this tool allows the designer to create animated GIF's that can be used on web pages. Animation Shop provides a banner ..." Read review

Paint Shop for Pros - Redone op

AdvantagesRead op

DisadvantagesRead op

"Paint shop pro 7, although confusing at the start to get to grips with, is an excellent art package for even the beginner, when I first bought this I thought it’d be just like the other psp’s (Paint shop pros) and very easy to get to grips with, but with the new addition of layers it made it fairly hard and confusing but in a way much more advanced and a lot more versatile in it’s use. Features - Seems to be able to open almost ..." Read review
