Corel PaintShop Pro X9
Get more out of your photos with the latest version of this versatile graphics editor

After being around for more than 25 years, it probably shouldn't be a surprise that Corel Paint Shop Pro X8 is absolutely packed with image editing power.

There are tools to fix brightness, contrast, or colour problems, adjust sharpness, remove noise, fix red-eye, even tweak portrait shots to make your friends look thinner, smooth out their wrinkles or give them an attractive tan.

Automatic tools can apply many fixes with a click. Scripting and batch processing options help you work on hundreds of pictures in a single option, or of course you can take full manual control of every step.

A stack of special effects open up all kinds of creative opportunities, and there's support for Photoshop plugins if you need more.

The program is a highly capable paint and drawing tool, with a host of illustration options, and support for importing Photoshop brushes.

You also get powerful photo restoration features, a RAW camera lab, a slideshow builder, social media sharing, and more graphic design tools than you'll see in many desktop publishing programs.

What's new?

    - Desktop publishing-type Project Templates help you create greetings cards, brochures, photo collages and more.
    - A new Interactive Gradient feature makes creating and fine-tuning gradients as easy as dragging and dropping
    - Support for Windows Real Time Stylus brings pressure sensitivity to Microsoft Surface and other devices
    - Extended camera support includes 15 new RAW profiles and the ability to work with Intel RealSense XDM images
    - You can now export your edit history, ideal for showing others exactly how you achieved a particular effect
    - Elsewhere, there's an updated Text Toolbar with downloadable text presets, Silent Script for faster one-click editing actions, and Smart Photo Fix one-click fixes can now be applied as part of a batch process
    - And if you're lost, the Guided Walkthrough takes you on a virtual tour through the new features (and the old ones, too)

Verdict:

A solid upgrade brings even more professional features to this versatile image editing suite. Good value for what you get, too.

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.

WhatsApp Messenger 2.16.11

Free Full Commercial Software

WhatsApp Messenger is the world's most popular instant messaging app for smartphones.

You can use it to send and receive text and voice messages, photos, videos, even call your friends in other countries, and because it uses your phone's internet connection it might not cost you anything at all (depending on whether you'll pay data charges).

It's easy to set up and use. There's no need to create and remember new account names or pins because it works with your phone number, and uses your regular address book to find and connect you with friends who use WhatsApp already.

You can talk one-to-one or in group chats, and because you're always logged in there's no way to miss messages. Even if your phone is turned off, WhatsApp will save your messages and display them as soon as you're back online.

There's plenty more (location sharing, contact exchange, message broadcasting) and the app is free for a year, currently $0.99/ year afterwards.

What's new in 2.16.11?

 - Due to a bug in iOS 10, your notification sounds may not properly play until you restart your iPhone (press and hold the power and home buttons for 10 seconds).
- In groups, you can now mention specific people to get their attention by typing the @ symbol and choosing someone from the picker. 
- When forwarding messages, you can now send to multiple chats at once 
- Ask Siri to send WhatsApp messages or place WhatsApp calls (iOS 10+) 
- Answer WhatsApp calls right from your lock screen, just like a standard phone call (iOS 10+) 
- A new Widget lets you quickly jump to a recent chat or see which chats have unread messages (iOS 10+)
