PaintShop Pro X2

I decided to give it a whirl, and was rather surprised at how good it was. It loads quite a bit faster than PhotoShop, and has features that rival PhotoShop. I wanted to try it for one reason… “Purple Fringe removal” tool. In outdoor back lit subjects, I have had issues with that purple ‘halo’, and in one easy step, it was removed. I was pleasantly surprised at how well it worked.

It also can handle RAW format, which is a huge bonus.

Now, if I could get PhotoShop to breed with PaintShop, I would be able to use just one program. chuckle
