      Hello Dean,

      Facebook periodically changes how automated uploads work, which can break our share tool. We don’t have an ETA to announce for an update at this time, but stay tuned!

      Hello Wray,

      Our developers are aware of the issue and working on it, but we don’t have an ETA to announce on the fix just yet. In the meantime, a workaround you can use is the tab key! It will cycle between buttons in the Pic-to-Painting window. Tapping it three times will move through Preview Style > Reset > Send and Close. Hit enter after the third press, and your settings will apply.

      Hope this helps,

    I bought the topaz bundle, but the way it says to upload it to the program is not available. On the old system you could use file – preferences – file upload – add. The new paintshop pro 2019 ultimate doesn’t have that section under preferences anymore. How can I upload it to the program in the new system?

      Hello Annie,

      Are you in the Essentials workspace? The menu options are slimmed down in Essentials to avoid distractions while working, and to help avoid overwhelming our newer users. You can switch from Essentials to the Complete workspace from File > Workspace and selecting Complete. That will bring back your File Locations menu option!

      Hope this helps,

    In a much older version of PSP, I had collected a lot of, I think they were called Tubes… I was able to turn text or any object into a “glass ” effect, for example make text look like a neon sign. Are there anything in psp 2019 like that? I really miss my “glass” tubes and the fun effects I had created with them. Thanks

      Hello Robin,

      That sounds like Picture Tubes! They are definitely still something you can use in PaintShop Pro 2019, but over the years how you install, access, and use them has changed slightly. One of our PaintShop Professionals, Carole Asselin, has a great webinar on using Picture Tubes that you may find helpful in learning how they work in the newer versions of PaintShop.

    How to integrate add-ons (Mirage, painter, perfectly clear, after shot and creative collection to the main programme?
    What is the normal work flow? Do we have to process raw images first with after ‘aftershot 3’ and then go to main programme – painshop pro ultimate?

      Hello Basavarajmin,

      Lots of questions inside this question! We’ll try to unpack it for you. PhotoMirage, Painter, AfterShot, and Athentech’s Perfectly Clear are all separate programs, although in many cases you can take projects from one program into another.

      The Creative Collection is a suite of add-ons that come with their own installer, and are used within PaintShop Pro itself.

      As for workflow, that varies quite a bit by user! A common one is to batch process RAWs in AfterShot and edit in PaintShop, but you could go so far as to include all of them!

      If you took your edited photo into Painter for example, you could use it as a base image to embellish with digital painting tools or turn entirely into a digital painting, and from there you could use PhotoMirage to breathe movement into it.

      Hope this helps,

    How do I get to a screen to manage photos – all I am getting as a choice is edit.

    • gilliandarby Reply

      Hi Don,

      To display the Manage tab, go to File > Preferences > General Program Preferences. Click on the Tabs option at the bottom of the list and then add a checkmark beside Manage. You can also click the buttons to set either the Manage, Edit or Welcome tab as the default screen that will display each time you launch PaintShop Pro.
      By default, the Essentials workspace will not display the Manage tab until you go through the steps above. However, if you switch to the Complete workspace, the Manage tab will be included automatically. To switch workspaces, go to File > Workspace and select the one you want.

      Hope this helps!

    When I upgraded to PaintShop Pro 2018 I found it awkward to transfer my print templates from the earlier version. Is it any easier with the 2019 upgrade?

    August 6, 2018 at 12:09 pm
    • Adam Reply

      Hello Peter,

      While PaintShop Pro 2019 does include the ability to automatically transfer many elements including Picture Tubes, Patterns, and Gradients, You would currently have to transfer print templates manually. Thanks for the suggestion! We have passed this on to the development team for their consideration.
