This is an offer you can’t afford to miss: Corel is giving away the full version of the image editing application Corel Paint Shop Pro X totally free. Actually the offer is available only to “Lexar customers” (I guess this is the same Lexar that makes flash memories), but you can avail the offer too (shhh…). Although the product they are offering is 2 editions older, but it’s powerful enough to suite most users’ needs.
Paint Shop Pro for Corel is what Photoshop is for Adobe, though the latter is several notches higher regarding capabilities. But most Photoshop users never use more than a fraction of what Photoshop offers. Paint Shop Pro has all that you will ever require in an image editing tool. Unlike Photoshop where most of the tools are hidden in menus, Paint Shop Pro brings them out as much as possible in the toolbar. A built in Learning Center will also guide you on how to use many of these tools.
Paint Shop Pro can be really touted as the real alternative to Adobe Photoshop.
