    I am not able to find the tools bar

      Hi Mary,

      If you are using the Essentials or Complete workspace, the Tools toolbar should be on the left side of the interface. If it is not visible, go to View > Toolbars and put a check beside Tools.
      If you are using the Photography workspace, you will need to switch to the Essentials or Complete workspace to access the Tools toolbar. You can change your workspace by going to File > Workspaces and selecting Essentials or Complete.

      Hope this helps!

    How do I use AI HDR Studio and where can I find it? I can find the normal HDR editing mode but not the one that has just installed.

      Hello James,

      It sounds like the plugin may not be installed yet! To install the AI HDR plugin, open PaintShop Pro, and click Effects > Get More Plugins. Install the AI HDR plugin, restart PaintShop Pro to be on the safe side (makes sure the install is cleaned up to avoid issues), and you will be all set!

    I wish to delete a detail (tree) from my photo

      Hello Rado,

      Removing elements from an image is definitely within the PaintShop Pro toolset. We would suggest looking at our tutorial on Removing Unwanted Objects and the tutorial on How to use the SmartClone Tool for more information on the tools and techniques you can use to do this.
