Corel PaintShop Pro X7
PaintShop Pro adds some useful new features to its latest release.

Modern digital cameras employ all kinds of clever techniques to improve the quality of the photos they produce, but there's almost always room for improvement later. Especially if you've installed Corel PaintShop Pro, which now provides more tools than ever to tweak, adjust and retouch your images, or use them in creative projects.

Open a photo in the Express Lab, for instance, and it'll automatically fix brightness, shadows, colour problems and more. You can manually adjust these settings yourself, if you'd like more control. There's one-click access to tools that will straighten an image, crop to the interesting parts, remove noise, sharpen a photo, fix red-eye and more. And the Makeover tools help your friends look their best by making them look thinner, removing skin blemishes, smoothing wrinkles, and painting on an attractive tan.

If you find you're applying similar changes all the time - your images are always just a little too dark, say - then the new batch processing feature will help. Make adjustments to one photo, then you can apply them to all the others, right from the program's thumbnail photo organiser.

Powerful new advanced editing tools include the Object Extractor, which makes it easy to extract an object from an image - even something awkward, like yet pet dog in blurry motion - and copy it to a new background. The Vibrancy option lets you boost colours in washed-out areas of a photo without unbalancing the image elsewhere. And other interesting tools help you add depth of field effects, fix fish-eye, barrel and other lens distortions, or merge images taken at different exposures to reveal the full range of scene details.

And when you're finished, it's now easy to build HD slideshows and videos of your photos, burn them to DVD, or share them on Flickr, Facebook or YouTube. Or, if you're feeling really creative, then the enhanced Project Creator will walk you through the process of creating photo books, cards, collages, calendars and more.

What’s new in PaintShop Pro X7?
+ New: Magic Fill tool with content-aware editing.
+ New: Smart Edge to help keep brush strokes within the lines.
+ New: Text and Shape Cutter tools.
+ New: Materials Palette featuring Color Harmonies.
+ New: new image dialog with common canvas size options
+ Improved: 30 per cent faster brush performance.
+ Enhanced and redesigned image editing tools.
+ Streamlined Layer workflow.
+ New: support for XMP files.

Verdict:

It doesn't have the full editing power of some of the high-end competition, but if you want an easy way to edit and manage your photos then PaintShop Pro X7 will do the job very well

Wrong version

Posted by: Phil Elliott, 08 September 2011 02:26

The article refers to X3 version, the title to X4 version. Which is it????

www.downloadcrew.com reply:

We don't re-write every single review, every time there's an update :)

We do for some apps, but it's not financially possible to re-write a review. The download is clearly for X4. The article/review was for X3 and may be updated at a later date.

Remember with download sites, the important point is to get apps online quickly. If we had to re-write every review, each time a product was updated, we wouldn't be able to keep up. We assumed people would realise this themselves.

Unreal Engine 4.8

Free Full Commercial Software

Unreal Engine is Epic Games' game engine, a powerful suite of tools for developing anything from basic 2D games to professional RPGs, first person shooters and whatever else you like.

Wide standards support - DirectX, OpenGL, JavaScript/ WebGL - means your projects can be targeted to almost any platform: consoles, iOS, Android, Windows, OS X, Linux, HTML5 browsers and more.

There's a vast amount to learn, of course, and that's even before you start building your game. But there's plenty of documentation, tutorials, demos and sample projects to point you in the right direction.

The package is now entirely free, too - no annoying limitations, nag screens or anything else. Epic now only requires that you pay a 5% royalty after the first $3,000 of revenue per product per quarter. And even then, you "pay no royalty for film projects, contracting and consulting projects such as architecture, simulation and visualization."

8.48 brings:
    - Optimized grass rendering and procedural foliage system preview
    - Plugins available in Marketplace
    - Improved accuracy for motion blur
    - New Tone Mapper
    - Support for all the latest VR hardware including Oculus Rift, Samsung Gear VR, Steam VR and HTC Vive, Leap Motion, and Sony's Project Morpheus for PlayStation 4
    - "Scrubbable" network replays with rewind support and live time scrubbing
    - Visualize the memory footprint of game assets in an interactive tree map UI
