I just acquired Paint Shop Pro 8 FINAL.
I must say folks it is looking better than ever. Interface is totally different, with new icons. They are nice, clean, a very reminisent of Photoshop Elements. Commands are worded out better, and it even has an effects browser now!
New tools for retouching photos, and even a one step photo fix button which is totally awesome. Im noticing that the interface looks a lot like a macromedia product, which is good! It has that long properties inspector at the bottom like dreamweaver flash mx has.
So go get it. At least try the demo, its such a huge improvement.

Good news, because Paint Shop Pro 7 sucks.
Honestly, NOTHING is intuitive. Everything starts off in complicated mode and you have to try and figure out how to make it work in mickey mouse mode.
Just want a plain old filled circle? About half an hours work in PSP7.

I thought I was the only person who found PSP 7 a real-REAL pain to learn!
I'll take a look at #8...I sure hope it works better:>)

I dunno, I like PHP version 6....in fact, it works better than PhotoShop in a number of areas. For example, the image browser rocks compared to PhotoShop.
Maybe I will get PSP 8

Well most of the last PSP updates havent really had too much of an impact on me, and the interface certainly remained the same. Jasc used to have to compensate for those using 256 colours ont heir comps, but now have stepped up all their icons into real looking ones.
