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.


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

Your Comments & Opinion

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???? 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.

Ashampoo Burning Studio 2013 (v11.0.6)

Free Full Commercial Software

Ashampoo Burning Studio 2013 is a compact, simple, but surprisingly feature-packed disc burning suite.

The program makes it easy to create simple data discs and audio CDs, for instance: just drag and drop your files onto the list area and you'll be burning the finished disc in a couple of clicks.

That's just the start, though. Burning Studio 2013 can also create data discs with customised, interactive multi-page menus, perfect if you'd like a more professional way to share and present the disc contents.

A built-in backup tool allows you to create backups which may be encrypted, compressed, and span several CDs, DVDs and Blu-rays.

And there are modules to create VCD or SVCD video projects; burn video DVDs or Blu-ray discs from prepared folders; create, browse or burn disc images (ISO, CUE/ BIN and Ashdisc formats are supported); copy discs, erase them, design and print disc covers, labels and booklets, and more.

The focus throughout is on ease of use, though, and so Ashampoo Burning Studio 2013 remains very straightforward, whatever you're doing. Most disc projects are created via the same simple interface, and for the most part all you have to do is drag and drop the necessary files. But experts will find more advanced options are only a click away, and if you need to then you can set ISO and UDF version, enable Joliet, make a disc bootable and more.

Note the download here will take you to the Downloadcrew Software Store where you can download Burning Studio 2013.
