    Corel PaintShop Pro X6 released for Existing users. Open market release on Sep 4th

    Yesterday I have got notification from Corel that PaintShop pro X6 is available for existing customers for special upgrade rate.
    I have downloaded the software. X6 is 64 bit compatible and hence faster. Has added some quick selection and masking tools. A major disappointment for me is that this version is not yet compatible with Nik Color Efex 4. I could use it with X5 with some work around. But with X6 the plugin comes up and we can process also, but when we click ok X6 hangs.
    I need to try out further work around. I was not able to contact Corel support since they haven't sent me the support code yet. I think that will shared only after Sep 4th.
    Otherwise the interface has been re-aligned a bit. With Ultimate edition they have added a new Plugin called Authentec Perfectly Clear. I just had a couple of minutes with the plugin it seems to control image aspects like micro contrast, contrast and toning. Also a sharpener included.
    Will give a detailed review with Pros and Cons this weekend.

    I certainly will have a look at Paint Shop Pro as soon as I have a desire to upgrade from Photoshop CS6; don't expect to happen that anytime soon.

    Color Efex Pro 4 is not working with 32-bit version of PaintShop Pro X6. This used to work with X5. But Color Efex Pro 3 which came bundled with X5 works fine with 32-bit version of X6. Seen in DPReview that even Color Efex Pro 3 doesn't works with 62-bit version of X6.

    I have X4 but pretty much stopped using it. 99% of my photos are processed in LR. The remaining 1% that I do want to put in a pixel processor can't go into PSP because it can't save files directly outputted from LR, after processing them. Gimp can do it but not PSP. This has been a bug for ever and Corel did nothing to fix it. Too bad, it's a nice software, but I am fed up with Corel. They are worse than Adobe. Sorry for the rant !
