Corel's latest version of their popular editing software has had a few upgrades which includes an enhanced user interface, speed improvements, 75 new design features and easier ways to share your work through social media sites.

Corel PaintShop Pro X4

New tools include:

  • HDR Tools – A completely redesigned HDR engine brings you the latest technology in high dynamic range photo production. The new HDR module provides tools to merge photos and create picture-perfect exposures with stunning contrast. With built-in presets to get you started, images look their best in no time.
  • Photo Blend – Create the perfect composition from a series of images by easily including the best details and removing unwanted elements from any individual photo.
  • Fill Light and Clarity – The Fill Light tool lets you bring out underexposed areas without affecting the overall brightness of your image, while the Clarity tool makes it easy to enhance subtle yet important details.
  • Selective Focus – Enhance the depth of field in any image or easily mimic the effect of expensive tilt-shift lenses to turn a scene into a simulated miniature.
  • Vignette Tools – Often used in wedding and portrait photography, the Vignette tool provides a classic portraiture style by applying a soft, coloured or faded border effect.

Usability, performance and sharing:

  • Corel PaintShop Pro X4 is faster than ever before with speed increases of over 50% on launch and accelerated performance compared with past versions.
  • Full Screen Preview – Fast, full-screen preview allows you to efficiently review your photos and use the entire screen to quickly view, rate, and rotate your images.
  • Enhanced Workspace – New redesigned tabbed workspaces allow you to move easily between different photo workflows. The Manage workspace gives you all the power to review, tag, rate and organize your photos. The new Adjust workspace puts commonly-used editing tools at your fingertips, while the Edit workspace provides you with a full range of professional-level editing tools.
  • User Interface Updates – Corel PaintShop Pro X4 offers numerous interface updates to help users be as productive as possible. These include the ability to access the organizer in all workspaces, dual monitor support for enhanced efficiency, additional Adjustment Layers, an updated Curves dialog, easy-to-read Histogram tools, enhanced metadata support and more.
  • Built-in social media sharing – For when your shots are picture-perfect, tools integrated into the organizer allow you to quickly share your images with a click on Facebook and Flickr plus resizing "on the fly" for emailing.

Shame they didn't finish paintshop Pro X3. I am still unable to use the Project creator. Now do I risk more money or change editing program.
In 12 months i have never manage to contact Corel online just get error message.

I'm still on X2 so might download the trial onto the PC (leaving X2 on the laptop) and have a play. Having just blown 400 odd on a new lens I don't plan to spend any more money until next payday at least Smile
