OK techies, lay it on me. Which one's better for photo editing and which one's easier to use? I've been using a too-old version of Microsoft Digital Imaging Suite and it's not meeting my needs anymore. Time to upgrade!
From the two, I prefer to use Photoshop Elements. I tried Corel Paint Shop and wasn't impressed. Some effects loads slower and it lacks some of the important functions Photoshop has.
Just my opinion.
I myself prefer Photoshop. I've just used it forever and it seems to have a pretty friendly user interface.
That's just me though.
I'm not sure but they just had the Corel Paint Shop Pro Photo x2 one for $29.99 on the Amazon.com deal of the day last week so I grabbed that up because I needed a new photo editing software. It includes like a quickie version and a more in depth version...I like the quickie version for crops and stuff. Only had it for like a week.
I've used Corel Draw's PhotoPaint since they first came out, so I know how to make them work for me, but I understand that Photoshop is much easier for someone who wants the program to do the work, you know, one click type of things. Either way will be a major upgrade from what you've been using!
I have Paint Shop Pro and I like it. I've tried Photoshop in the past but it wasn't as easy to pick up on as PSP, for me anyhow.
Thanks so much everybody for the info!
