Pros: Strong tools for beginners and experienced users; excellent new Color Changer tool; Snapfire Plus SE bundled in; 2 hours of video training included. ...Cons: Some sluggish and underwhelming new features, such as the Depth of Field command; Corel Photo Album no longer included. ...Bottom Line: Current users of version X shouldn't rush to upgrade, as they already own most of the program's powerhouse features. But for newcomers, Paint Shop Pro remains an outstanding image editor at an affordable price. PC Mag: http://www.pcmag.com/article2/0,2817,2014580,00.asp
