Jasc has once again proved it was possible to turn and improve an already outstanding program into a better one. This new version 7.0 of Paint Shop Pro brings tons of enhancements, which were long desired for some of them, and is more web-oriented than ever. The program remains easy to use and keeps its orientation of the midrange graphics market: Paint Shop Pro 7.0 is still one of the best picture editing programs after Adobe Photoshop. Paint Shop Pro doesnít fade at all when you compare it to PhotoShop. Overall this affordable software is probably the most complete, feature rich you can find out on the market even if itís not always intuitive to use. So if you do a lot of picture editing or if you plan to do so go grab a copy of Paint Shop Pro 7 to have the ultimate graphics toolbox at your fingertips.
