      Hello Gravymac,

      Are you in the Essentials or Complete workspace? The Essentials workspace in PaintShop Pro has fewer tools, dockers, and tabs by default, as it is is designed to provide a simpler, more streamlined interface for new users or more experienced users looking to make a quick edit. You can switch between workspaces from the Welcome tab, or from the File > Workspace menu.

    Very much appreciated soft but, just to improve it in a right direction, I’d suggest less attention to one-touch commercial effects and more time dedicated to few less impressive but more tough ones, such as:
    1. Levels grouping management;
    2. masks and selections management and transfer;
    3. previews refreshing speed;
    4. history palette improvement;
    5. extension to color profiles wider than sRGB (though that could require a harder programming effort, I suppose).
    Anyway, thank you very much, you’re presence really very very useful.

      Hello Jim,

      Is ParticleShop already installed? If so, you will need to add it to PaintShop Pro 2019 manually. You can do this by opening PSP and navigating to File > Preferences > File Locations, selecting the Plugins option on the left hand side, and selecting the Add button on the right hand side once Plugins has been selected. Then, just navigate to your ParticleShop folder and press Add once more. That will tell PaintShop Pro where to find it, and from then on it can be launched from the Plugins menu like normal.

      Hope this helps,
      Discovery Center Team
