Paint Shop Pro for Idiots … and Intellects

Jasc Software has released a new pair of products. Their popular Paint Shop Pro, a competitor of Photoshop, has become similar in one more way, two versions. One called Studio, is more intuitive and light, much like Photoshop Elements is meant to be I think. The other, Paint Shop Pro 9 (Nine) is meant for the more serious digital worker.

In a recent article in Consumer Reports magazine, PSP didn’t fare too well because the magazine placed emphasis on ease of use. For those wanting that ease of use … there you go. I think I would prefer the features, although I have to admit I have not found PSP 8 (Eight) nearly as easy to use as versions 6 and 7 that I initially “fell in love with.”
