2.0 out of 5 stars Three word summary review: Slow, Crashes January 9, 2013
Platform for Display:PC Download
I started using PaintShop Pro many years ago when it was made by Jasc. I used 4 or 5 Jasc versions before Corel bought them out and have bought or upgraded to every version that Corel has put forth. Ever since Corel bought Jasc they (Corel) have continually added features and the software has also become buggier and buggier. All versions prior to this X5 were at least usable.

I tried running this version X5 on a modern Windows 7 64-bit machine and found it to be so slow, buggy and crash prone that it was actually UNUSABLE. I tried totally uninstalling it and re-installing it but that didn't help. I tried running it in XP compatibility mode and found it was more stable but still unusable. I was not doing anything particularly demanding to make it crash. For example: Just loading the program and then trying to see if there was an update would crash it. I downloaded the first service pack directly from the Corel web site and gave that a try. Same results. The X5 program crashed so often and for so many reasons that I finally gave up on it and re-installed version X4.

At this point I rate the program 1 star (I would rate it 0 if that was possible). Hopefully Corel with come up with a second service pack at some point that will make the program usable.

One other complaint. Every time you upgrade PaintShop Pro you lose your custom toolbars and workspace layouts. It is very irritating to have to spend hours to re-create these every time you upgrade.

Feb. 24, 2013 Update
I installed Corel's second service pack that recently became available. Program crashing has been greatly reduced so the program is now usable but it is still slow. Sometimes it takes 45 sec just to load the program, other times only a few seconds.

5.0 out of 5 stars Corel Paint Shop Pro Takes The Cake June 2, 2013
Platform for Display:PC Download|Verified Purchase
Corel PaintShop Pro is a powerful, easy to use, and affordable image and graphic program. If you need a powerful program to edit pictures, create graphics, and so much more then Pain Shop Pro is the way to go. As powerful as Photoshop at a fraction of the cost. I love it!!!

4.0 out of 5 stars Lots of power on a budget May 7, 2013
By Joaquin
Platform for Display:PC Download|Verified Purchase
With Adobe's products going to a cloud-based subscription service (which is just a DRM), I wanted to keep with the perpetual license scheme. Problem is, there are no products that come close to Photoshop or After Effects interface which is beautiful. Sad to say, Paint Shop Pro does not fit that bill to fill that gap that Adobe will leave behind for people like me, but then again, what other choices are there? Apparently plenty, but so far, they fall short.

I picked this software over the others such as the open source GIMP which is widely recommended as a Photoshop alternative because I used Paint Shop Pro before moving over to Photoshop. Granted, I was also using Paint Shop Pro 6, which was a very, very long time ago.

That is not to say this software lacks features. It does, but the interface is ultra-clunky. The Gimp is also clunky. I suppose it is just a matter of getting used to the interface. Also, at $60 or so, that is a far cry from the $600 price tag attached to Photoshop.

Bottom line? If you are on a budget, give this a try. Better yet, save your money and get GIMP.

OK, but found that the Ultimate version does a few more things that I was looking for. Wish I had seen it before I purchased this version.

I found the software to be great, but it shuts down after opening. I can not find help to keep this open, so I have lost my money on this product. Very disappointed because I have always like Corel products.

2.0 out of 5 stars CAN ONLY BE DOWNLOADED ON ONE COMPUTER June 30, 2013
By SACMDV
Platform for Display:PC Download|Verified Purchase
THIS PROGRAM APPEARS TO RESTRICT USE TO ONLY ONE COMPUTER SO I CAN'T PUT IT ON MY WIFES AND IS ONLY GOOD FOR TWO YEARS SO YOU DON'T OWN IT. NORMALLY PROGRAM ARE ALLOWED TO BE USED ON THREE OF THE COMPUTERS YOU OWN, SO THE GREAT PRICE IS NOT WORTH IT.

5.0 out of 5 stars PSPX5 October 23, 2013
Platform for Display:PC Download|Verified Purchase
I loved Paint Shop Pro so much, that I held on to my old version for nearly a decade. Well Corel has released it's excellent upgraded version PSPX5. It didn't take me long to catch up. Most everything in the older versions are still there, with exciting new add-ons. The Amazon instant download is the only way to go - it's great - no disks or dvd's to worry about. The product is excellent. Amazon is now offering Version 6 for download. As soon as I completely master 5, I will buy 6.

PaintShop Pro has a great feature set but the UI is clunky (still way better than Gimp's UI, though). There are some bugs, but after convincing offshore tech support of the bugs, they seem to take me seriously and log them. I now have version X6 and it gets the same review.
