We use Corel PaintShop Pro to not only correct pictures we use in our business but also to manipulate those pictures for various uses. The tools that PaintShop Pro has have developed significantly since it was an independent product many years ago. The addition of the new AI tools while they take some getting used to are fantastic. Love the product, love the tools it offers, it is our go-to for editing photos for all uses in our company.
  • AI photo correction is an excellent new addition
  • The before an after side by side feature we use everyday
  • The undo feature is one I particularly like
  • I would like to see better smart cropping, we have the need for use in our carrying and travel cases for foam cut-outs. This requires a picture to be taken of the product and then outlined. The latest Apple update does a much better job of it than Corel. A definite need in our business
Any photo editing job needed in a professional environment can be handled by PaintShop Pro. It is the best and editing all areas of a photo to not only correct an improperly taken photo BUT also to modify it ie cropping, re-sizing, and correcting lighting. This is critical in our use of pictures taken in a factory environment where lighting might not be optimal.
  • Our website is better because of Corel PaintShop Pro
  • Our brochures for tradeshows are much better due to PaintShop Pro
From an ROI perspective, we moved entirely away from PhotoShop because we could not justify the cost vs performance. Corel PaintShop Pro is simply more cost-effective and offers the same performance and tools.

I use Corel PaintShop Pro to produce content for landing pages and other web content for my main line of work which is Internet Marketing. I have also used it to design artwork for t-shirts, mugs, stationery, and other print-on-demand merchandise for an online shop while pursuing a side interest.
  • An extensive range of image correction and effects tools. I found I could be very precise with exposures, color balancing and other aspects of fixing-up photos.
  • I like the fact that the original image is saved in a seperate place in my file system so I can easily revert to the original when I make a mistake
  • The "batch process" feature is an excellent feature for reapplying a learned series of changes to a batch of photos. It has saved me time.
  • I have the 2018 version and every now and again upgrade ads will pop up in the bottom right of my screen which I find rather annoying
  • How to save your work and where it gets saved is confusing. It took me a while to realize that projects were saved in "pspimage" files. The knowledge base article “The Basics Of Saving Files In PaintShop Pro” did not mention pspfiles. They also have the concept of workspaces, but I eventually realized that this is not where your work is saved.
  • I find that a tool called paint.net is massively easier to use, but, then again, paint.net has far fewer features. I think an option in PaintShop Pro for temporarily switching down the functionality and interface to resemble paint.net would be a useful feature, so users do not get blinded by the extensive interface.
Corel PaintShop Pro is well suited for photographers wanting to adjust photos and also for designers who want to create designs from scratch, working in layers and merging various elements.

Due to slow load times, Corel PaintShop Pro is not well suited when you only have a few small tasks to do and when a lightweight alternative will do the job just as well (e.g. cropping and red-eye removal).
  • The ability to work in layers is perhaps the most important feature, but that is expected of all middle-weight and upwards image processing tools.
  • We find image correction, which is well supported, to be something we frequently use.
  • Occasionally we use bulk processing on multiple images and this saves a lot of time.
  • Though I can not quote any figures, Corel PaintShop Pro has had a significant positive impact on our business as we use to jump around between quite a few tools to get a job done. Now all the tools are under one roof.
