JB, London

Score 8.0/10
Good points:
I've used Paint Shop Pro since v5 and find it a lot easier for the average home user. Photoshop is great but it's very intense and I think more aimed at proffesional users. PSP is a great alternative for normal use.
Bad points:
Later versions of PSP always seem to take a while to start up and seem to drain the resources (RAM I guess) quite heavily. However, I ensure that I keep any open applications to a minimum.

Trevor, York

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
Excellent for image editing but I have only just started to use layers and some of the more complex features. Set-up was fast and problem free. The free Painter Photo Essentials is good fun.
The smart carver works easily and effectively.
Bad points:
The system crashed once early on for no obvious reason.
Gradients are not as easy to use as on my previous software.
Adding plug-ins can be frustrating.

Alan, Lancashire

Score 8.0/10
Good points:
Has lots of the features that are available in the vastly more expensive Photoshop but lacking in Elements, and for users of earlier versions the addition of tools such as 'Local Tone Mapping' and 'Smart Carver', 'Object Extractor' and 'Skin Smooting' offer even greater versatility which make this version even better, but in a familiar interface. The addition of RAW processing is also very useful too.
Bad points:
Anyone (like myself) who tried out the downloadable version first, but then removed it and decided to buy the disk version isntead may well find they have the serious installation problems that I had, and which I eventually managed to track down to old setup files (not marked with the name Corel) that had been left on my computer when the trial version was removed. If you are thinking of going for the trial version DON'T, buy the disk version instead. The other little niggle was the small size (too small) of the RAW window, which makes it neccessary to keep enlarging the window to check your changes.
