Combine photos easily

The new Photo Blend tool lets you combine the best elements from similar shots to create your ideal photo.

Impressive results--fast

With new performance updates, including GPU optimizations, PaintShop Pro X4 is the fastest version yet. More real-time effects--including Noise Reduction, Vibrancy, Tone Mapping and others--let you see the results as you work. Start-up time is drastically reduced, plus the interface is faster and more responsive.

Streamlined workflow

Enjoy an easy and intuitive editing experience with tabbed workspaces that mirror your natural workflow. Move freely between three modes:

  • Manage--quickly browse, tag and organize your photo collections

  • Edit--take advantage of professional tools for photo editing, image composition and graphic design

You can also access the Organizer directly from any workspace, making it easy to review and rate your photos.

Custom borders

Professional editing power

New! HDR tools: A totally new set of HDR tools in PaintShop Pro X4 is designed to let you take full advantage of photos taken with auto-bracketing features on DSLRs.

You can use Exposure Merge to combine photos taken with different exposure settings to create perfectly exposed images. Ideal for high-contrast backlit scenes, such as sunsets and interior window shots, Exposure Merge lets you bring out color and detail in the foreground, midground, and background areas. PaintShop Pro X4 has built-in HDR-adjustment presets, or you can save and reuse your favorite configurations as a preset.

For photographers who use auto-bracketing often, Batch Merge is a time-saving tool for quickly processing HDR sets. It lets you merge multiple bracketed sets of photos at the same time to achieve a custom, uniform look across a series of HDR photos. Batch Merge lets you save your results to a 32-bit HDR file so you can refine it later. In some cases, this might be all you need to get the look you were hoping for. In other cases, you'll want to adjust the results in Exposure Merge.

New! Photo Blend: Getting a group shot where everyone looks their best just got a lot easier with Photo Blend. This new feature lets you combine the best features from a series of photos to create a perfect image. For example, you can swap out a blinking photo subject from one picture for a better shot of that person. And if the only thing that stands between a good photo and a perfect one is an unwanted element, Photo Blend makes it easy to remove unwanted portions of images. You can even get creative by showing the same person multiple times in a single photo.

New! Fill Light and Clarity filter: Using this one powerful filter, you can fine-tune the brightness and clarity of your photos. The Fill Light/Clarity filter simplifies brightening shadows or darkening light areas without affecting other portions of the image. You can also soften or sharpen subtle yet important details in shots.

New! Selective Focus: This new effect lets you transform a real shot into a miniature model. Selective Focus, often referred to as a tilt-shift effect, lets you intuitively adjust the depth of field and increase saturation to create the illusion of a toy-like miniature scene from a photo. You can also use Selective Focus to draw attention to important parts of an image by blurring out busy surrounding details.

New! Vignette: PaintShop Pro X4 makes this classic photo effect easier than ever to create, tweak, and apply. The new Vignette feature adds a soft outer border that fades to white or black so you can draw attention to the most important part of your shot. Easy-to-use controls let you fine-tune the shape of the edges and the amount of blur, glow, and feathering. In addition, an instant preview lets you quickly see how the effect looks.

Enhanced! Camera RAW Lab: The Camera RAW Lab is now easier to use with a larger preview area and an improved histogram that help you quickly assess your adjustments. In addition, new highlight recovery options mean that you can restore detail in overexposed areas.

Enhanced! 16-bit support: PaintShop Pro X4 has extended 16-bit support to a range of tools and adjustments, giving you even more precision and flexibility when working with RAW formats.

Over 20 tools have been upgraded to 16-bit support, including the Scratch Remover, Paint Brush, Object Remover, Color Replacer, Warp Brush, Mesh Warp, and Background Eraser.

Performance

Enhanced! Application speed: PaintShop Pro X4 has more than 75 performance updates, including GPU optimizations, that help ensure a fast, efficient working environment. Effects, such as Noise Reduction, Vibrancy and Tone Mapping, can now be applied in real time. Skin Smoothing, Smart Carver, Depth of Field, Blur, and Smart Photo Fix have also been refined to offer enhanced speed and performance. In addition, Camera RAW decoding is faster than ever.

Enhanced! Full-screen review: The Quick Review feature has been tweaked to offer full-screen image review so you can quickly and easily view, delete, rotate, and rate your photos.

Usability

New! MUI support: Great if you're working on a multilingual dual-byte system, new native multilingual user interface (MUI) support means that you can display text from multiple interface languages on a single PC. Now, there's never a problem working with photos that have foreign characters in their filename.

Enhanced! Workspace: PaintShop Pro X4 has been redesigned so you can move between photo workflows in a click. The application has three tabbed workspaces each dedicated to a different stage in the digital-photography workflow. The Manage workspace gives you everything you need to review and organize your photos. You can find the most frequently used image-correction tools in the Adjust workspace, and the Edit workspace provides you with a full range of professional-level editing tools. No matter which workspace you're in, the Organizer palette is always displayed, so there's no need to go to a separate workspace or application to find more photos.

New! Dual monitor support: Because you can never have enough screen space, PaintShop Pro X4 lets you manage your photos on one monitor and edit on another.

1.0 out of 5 stars Never thought I would ever say this, but... November 26, 2011
Format:Software
...for the first time since 1998, I will not be buying the latest version of Paint Shop Pro.

I have been a loyal user of PSP since version 5, back when JASC Software was the company developing and publishing it. Paint Shop Pro has always been an exceptional program, and it was made even better by its affordable price tag. But now it saddens me to see what Corel has done.

Like a couple other reviewers have stated, Corel has chosen to stuff this program with bloat and design rather than function. In fact, I would go so far as to say this new interface is very counter-intuitive. For example...

There is an Organizer palette at the bottom of the screen that reappears no matter how many times it is turned off. Some people may find this palette useful, but there is no way to permanently turn it off. I DO NOT need an organizer palette, I know where my images are and I am very capable of getting to them. I would much rather have my editing pane utilize the space taken up by this useless palette.

Manage/Adjust/Edit tabs at the top of the screen are a joke. In previous versions, everything contained in these tabs was available in the drop-down menus. Now, Corel wants you to switch tabs to access each type of function, and to make matters worse the tools in the Manage and Adjust tabs are not in a tool bar but in yet another palette on the left side of the screen which robs you of even MORE work space! Also, if you have an image open in the Edit tab and then switch to the Adjust tab, guess what... the image closes and you have to REOPEN it. But, Corel must have missed something, because if you are in the Edit tab you have the full array of drop down menus, which include all the file management and adjustment functions available on the other two tabs...

5.0 out of 5 stars Great software, Great Price! September 12, 2011
By 5055
Format:Software
If you're an avid PaintShop Pro user of previous versions, you may want to know before hand that it has completely changed. If you decide to buy the new version, just make sure you have the correct mind set for these new changes...If you're not a person for change, then you may want to hold off for a bit. Me on the other hand, these new changes were something different for me, but in no time I adjusted to them quite fast. The new changes are noticeable to point out, and you will soon realize how beneficial and great these features are. Here are a few of the changes in the new version...

NEW Nik Color Efex Pro 3.0--includes over 250 effects and styles, along with 30+ emulated film types in 52 easy-to-use filters
NEW Custom photo book--showcase your best work
NEW Images from Fotolia--download your 21 royalty-free, high-resolution photos from this incredible image bank of photos and illustrations
NEW Picture Tubes--get a selection of Picture Tubes from our extensive collection
NEW HDR module--merge photos with different exposures to create incredible images
NEW Photo Blend--combine photos of the same scene to include the best details and remove unwanted elements
NEW Selective Focus--mimic the effect of expensive tilt-shift lenses and turn a scene into a miniature world
NEW Interface--Complete re-design of the interface has been implemented. Built for ease of use
NEW Windows 7 Integration--Now includes taskbar previews of your layered projects.

**You can also go to the Corel site, just so you know a bit more about What's New!**

The only thing I did not like, is the integration with the Windows 7 taskbar previews while dealing in layers, as far as I know...You cannot turn this off.

5.0 out of 5 stars My Quick Look at PSP X4 September 16, 2011
Format:Software
By Lynn Page Webmaster/Newsletter Editor Crystal River Users Group (CRUG)

I have had the opportunity to spend a little time looking at Corel PaintShop Pro X4 and am pleased with the changes to an already excellent product. I will be doing a full review for my user group (CRUG) but want to provide a few initial observations.

The Getting Started/Welcome screen that opens in front of the workspace will be a benefit to new users and I found it worth the little time it took to look through the explanations. PSP X4 has moved to a more traditional tabbed interface most of us have come to love. The easily spotted tabs in the middle of the title bar make it simple to move between the Manage, Adjust and Edit tasks whether you have the application full screen or not.

The Manage tab contains the Organizer in the bottom pane and a Navigation pane on the left. In the past I generally did not use the Organizer very often but did note some nice features on the Manage tab. The auto hide feature for the Navigation pane provides room for a much nicer preview of a selected photo. Dedicated photographers will appreciate the additional information about the photo displayed in the right pane. The Organizer task bar now includes a Share icon to easily share a photo through email or on FaceBook or Flickr. There is also an icon to Auto Group photos taken within a period of time up to a minute. What I liked the best is that PSP remembers where I was in the Organizer and goes to that location when I return.

The Adjust tab is a beefed up version of the Express Lab. With the addition of controls for color balance, brightness/contrast, fill light/clarity, local tone mapping, and digital noise removal it can now truly handle many if not most routine photo fixes.
