    The video tutorials are way too small and way to fast. Is there a printed version available? If not and you can’t improve the video’s then the program is not for me

    I have upgraded from X9 to 2018 Ultimate, I cant seem to get my plugins to work. Do I need to uninstall X9 in order for them to transfer to 2018? My particle shop wont even show up. Thanks

      Hello Debbie,

      All you need to do is tell PSP 2018 where the plugin folder for X9 is! Here is a tutorial on installing plugins in PaintShop Pro that goes through how to add an additional plugin folder.

    I just purchased the Pro 2018 Ult. This video was useless to me. I have no idea what they were clicking on. This video is meant for people who already use this software. I have no idea how to do anything with this software. I am a full time Pro Photographer since 1985, graduated from an Art Institute in 1993. How and where do I learn how to use this software?

    I really like Corel’s products. They have really come a very long way since the days they purchased WordPerfect and really for the better. I purchased your entire suite of media products from AfterShot Pro to VideoStudio Ultimate, to PaintShop Pro Ultimate. In my opinion they represent a good value proposition not just for enthusiasts and prosumers but also for professional artists. As long as you guys keep improving the products and keep improving the value proposition you can count on my continued patronage!

      I’m in the same boat. Was going to switch from Photoshop but now I’m not so sure.

    Overall a 50/50 presentation. The best part was when Brad got into demonstrating some of Paintshop’s new features. The rest came over as too unrehearsed with too many advertising references. It was fast in places, but no problem as one can pause it and re-evaluate. This introduction video should be remade more professionally. I look forward to seeing some of the other, more specific video tutorials.

    I have been a user since the Jasc days and indeed still find Jasc version 9 a better and faster way of doing things than many of the modern programs – but I have purchased Paintshop Pro 2018 and it looks better than most of the intermediate versions of the past.

    This tutorial to introduce the software goes to fast and the cursor is going all around that my eyes could not keep up and I had to keep pausing and going back. Maybe highlight the cursor so it is easier to follow and slow down.

    how do I make a photo look like a painting please

      Hi Patricia,
      In the top menu bar, choose Effects > Art Media Effects > Brush Strokes. In the Brush Strokes window that will open, you have different settings you can adjust to get the look you want.

      For some images, I find this effect blurs out some of the small details I want to keep, for example eyes in a portrait image. So before I apply the painting effect, I duplicate my image in the layers palette, then apply the effect on the duplicate layer. Then you can use the eraser tool to gently erase some of the painting layer to bring back details of the photo below.

      Hope this helps! You can also find other artistic effects in the Instant Effects palette. Go to View > Palettes > Instant Effects to open it. From the drop-down list at the top, select the Artistic category and you will see Charcoal, Pencil etc.

    Whoa slow down please!! The women is talking so fast that I can not understand what she is saying. It might be a good tutorial but you have to be able to hear it properly. I know Americans talk fast but just remember that this product is going all over the world and maybe you should consider that before you put together a video. I am now looking for the printed version of it so that I can work myself through.
