Is anyone using PhotoEditorX? How is it?

I'm currently using PaintShop Pro from Corel but don't like how it automatically adjusts my .cr2 files and I've never got the hang of Photoshop.

I started digital photography using paint shop pro, but slowly made the transition to photoshop.
There are some great tutorials on U Tube for photoshop, and these helped me to learn moe easily.

Hhhm.....but photoshop is so expensive and I've grappled to use trial versions with any success....

Which version of Paint Shop Pro are you using? I'm sure that there must be a setting change you can make to stop any automatic adjustments.

In File Preferences- File Format Preferences there is a checkbox to untick to stop it opening RAW files with smart photo fix - that's PSP X2

X3 version 13.

Yeah, I've tried that, it simply makes everything dark or over exposed....I've 'reset' the settings so many times, I simply gave up. Before I 'upgraded' and paid to do so, it handled RAW images perfectly well....so, I'm frustrated..

I've decided not to upgrade so alas can't experiment. However I believe there are a few EPZ members using X3 so there might be someone out there with some idea.

As PSP doesn't support my Sony files I ended up using the software that came with the camera which seemed ok - not that I shoot RAW very often.
