View Full Version : Paint Shop Pro X5

I have been using pSP for a while now. I quite liked X4 but decided to upgrade for X5. I wasn't sure if it was worth it but then I started playing with it's HDR component. I had tried the X4's version and it, quite frankly, sucked.

But the one in X5 is quite good. This is one example (easily seen as HDR):

this is one is a bit more natural

but I think that there is a lot of potential with this.

Haven't used Paint Shop in any iteration. If their improvements overall are as good as the HDR fix, I'd say you have a great investment.

Thanks Q1.

For it's cost it's a powerful program. I started with X2 and have been happy with it so far.

Nice work Bambi. Looking at your Flickr page, it looks like you have been using the HDR on a few of your most recent shots??. You have certainly done a good job
