Corel PaintShop Pro 2021 - Instant Download for Windows (1 Computer)
A very good piece of software that I've been using, in various versions, for more than 20 years. The constant nags to upgrade are a major annoyance. If this is the alternative to the totally unacceptable subscription plan that Adobe has gone to, so be it, but they still drive me crazy. The user interface is tedious to use--as many other applications are (still hate the ribbon on Word) but it is still a full featured, professional level product for a good price.
I'm sure it's a good program, I just don't have any personal knowledge of that fact since I couldn't get it to install and the technical support people couldn't give me an answer that helped me at all. I've been looking for a basic photo editing program since I switched computers and finally found that Windows Essential still has the Windows Photo Gallery program available for those of us still using Windows 7.
Paint Shop Pro Has been - and always will be - my favorite photo editing program. It’s easy to use, and you can do a whole Lotta fun stuff with it. I don’t just use it with photos, or use it to make my own graphics… Website banners, headers, etc.
I've been using Paint Shop Pro for maybe 20 years now, as a basic screen capture/bitmap editing package, and I bought a new copy for my current computer so that it would work properly with Windows 10.It works fine, though the UI isn't as clean and simple as it once was.The annoying thing is that it keeps displaying Corel spam in the form of popup ads. I have not been able to turn them off. IMHO this is a deal-breaker. If I need to upgrade this app in the future, I will buy a different program that is better behaved, or I'll find a pirated version with this behavior deleted.
