Corel PaintShop Photo Pro X3

Professional editor for digital images
Edit pictures, retouch photos or have the application attempt to enhance them. Use the embedded Express Lab to adjust the brightness, saturation, highlights and shadows of your images or the Organizer to manage your picture collection.

Corel PaintShop Photo Pro X3 is a complete program to edit photos.
It offers a wide variety of tools to improve your digital photos. It also includes a subprogram called "Express Lab" with Smart Photo Fix feature that allows you to adjust the brightness, shadows, highlights and saturation of the selected image. It allows you to remove color casts and sampling points. To ease the edition process, this tool allows you to zoom in/out, pan the image or crop it. You can also use a button that will automatically attempt to fix the photo using standard settings.

Another feature is the Organizer, that will allow you to enter information about the pictures, such as its name, rating, date, tags and captions. The Organizer will show small thumbnails in the lower part of the program´s interface. By clicking on any of them, you will see a much bigger image in the center of the screen. The Full Editor is the main part of the program, the one that was offered in all previous versions. Here you can draw, cut, copy, paste, add text, paint and use all the tools you will expect in a premium graphics editor. If you want to learn how to use some tools, you can activate the "Learning Center", a frame where the program will give you the guidelines to master each tool.

You can use the trial version of PaintShop Photo Pro X3 for free for thirty days.
