This week I got Corel Paintshop Pro Ultimate X2.  PSP has sure come a long way since I first started using JASC PSP 4. It has evolved from an easy to use but sometimes amateurish alternative to Photoshop into a quality package.  In the early days one of PSP’s greatest strengths was its value. For $50 it was the best program out there. With some work it was possible to get results that rivaled Photoshop. Since Corel bought out JASC the quality has gone up.  It does cost more than $50 and I miss the days of $45 upgrades for those who had versions 4 and earlier.  I have been pleased with all the extras that have now been included with PSP. Today I decided to play with Corel Painter.

  1. Beautiful bluebonnets and Indian paint brushes. Were they at Blue Ridge?

    My heart beats patriotically for bluebonnets and bluebells.

  2. I use PSP X2 also and have sent your mom some of the scrapbook layouts I have made of my ancestors and my grandkids. I agree that PSP has improved a LOT over the years. I have never tried painter, though! I love your different effects!
