What’s New in Update 3?

In PaintShop Pro X9 Update 3, you’ll find a whole bunch of enhancements and improvements that will help to smooth out your workflow and make the entire editing, layout and design process more enjoyable.

One of the biggest changes is to the Gradient Fill tool (new in PaintShop Pro X9), which now includes an extra level of control, enabling you to set color and transparency nodes for your gradient.

We’ve also added more than 20 new lens distortion corrections, with new profiles of glass from Canon, Nikkor, Sigma, Sony and Tamron all ready to go.

    Hi Alex,
    PSP does not support the RAW’s from my Sigma DP2 Merrill camera. No other editor does either so us Sigma users are stuck with the Sigma Photo Pro software, which is very limited and slow.
    There is one other program out there which can deal with these files, X3F tools, which is open source. This software will convert these Merrill files into TIFs or DNG’s.
    Would it be possible for Corel to incorporate this software as a plug-in so that we would be able to work with our RAW files directly in PSP?
    Thousands of Sigma users would be extremely grateful as we are desperate for an alternative to Sigma’s Photo Pro.

      Hi Jan, thanks for letting us know you’d like to see the Sigma DP2 Merrill’s RAW profile added to PaintShop Pro. I’ve passed your request on to our development team. You may also want to contact the X3F development team. As open source, they may have community developers who can help integrate their program as a PaintShop Pro plugin. Thanks again for sharing your feedback and hope this helps!
