Paint Shop Pro 8.01
Paint Shop Pro covers the range of graphics work from digital illustration to image editing. Animation Shop, a standalone application bundled with Paint Shop, adds animation, optimization, and effects capabilities to your images. This well-rounded set of tools can produce professional, Web-ready results at a price that is easy to handle.
Ease of use is Paint Shop Pro’s strength. Jasc instilled this program with an array of intelligent, automated tools including a color balancer, a saturation enhancement filter, a red-eye remover, and several photo-restoration tools. If you’re new to the image-editing game, you can get assistance from the program’s extensive Help system or the 12-chapter Getter Started Guide.
Paint Shop Pro includes powerful vector, text, and painting tools. It lets you apply gradients, patterns, and textures to both text and shapes, and includes industry-standard features such as alpha masks and Bezier tools. You’ll also find many features built to streamline the design process for Web graphics, including a preview option and tools for slicing, mapping, optimizing, and creating rollover effects on your images.
Powerful, full-featured, and easy to use, Paint Shop Pro is a comprehensive tool for graphics work; and its small price tag makes it an attractive choice for newbies and budget-minded designers.
