Corel PaintShop Pro 2018
Get more out of your photos with the latest version of this versatile graphics editor

After being around for more than 25 years, it probably shouldn't be a surprise that Corel Paint Shop Pro is absolutely packed with image editing power.

There are tools to fix brightness, contrast, or colour problems, adjust sharpness, remove noise, fix red-eye, even tweak portrait shots to make your friends look thinner, smooth out their wrinkles or give them an attractive tan.

Automatic tools can apply many fixes with a click. Scripting and batch processing options help you work on hundreds of pictures in a single option, or of course you can take full manual control of every step.

A stack of special effects open up all kinds of creative opportunities, and there's support for Photoshop plugins if you need more.

The program is a highly capable paint and drawing tool, with a host of illustration options, and support for importing Photoshop brushes.

You also get powerful photo restoration features, a RAW camera lab, a slideshow builder, social media sharing, and more graphic design tools than you'll see in many desktop publishing programs.

What's new in 2018?

- NEW Simplified user interface and bigger icons
- NEW Workspaces to match your skill level
- NEW Faster results and improved tools
- NEW Color palettes, brushes and more creative content

Verdict:

A solid upgrade brings even more professional features to this versatile image editing suite. Good value for what you get, too.

Wrong version

Posted by: Phil Elliott, 08 September 2011 02:26

The article refers to X3 version, the title to X4 version. Which is it????

downloads.pcauthority.com.au reply:

We don't re-write every single review, every time there's an update :)

We do for some apps, but it's not financially possible to re-write a review. The download is clearly for X4. The article/review was for X3 and may be updated at a later date.

Remember with download sites, the important point is to get apps online quickly. If we had to re-write every review, each time a product was updated, we wouldn't be able to keep up. We assumed people would realise this themselves.

WhatsApp Messenger 2.17.42

Free Full Commercial Software

WhatsApp Messenger is the world's most popular instant messaging app for smartphones.

You can use it to send and receive text and voice messages, photos, videos, even call your friends in other countries, and because it uses your phone's internet connection it might not cost you anything at all (depending on whether you'll pay data charges).

It's easy to set up and use. There's no need to create and remember new account names or pins because it works with your phone number, and uses your regular address book to find and connect you with friends who use WhatsApp already.

You can talk one-to-one or in group chats, and because you're always logged in there's no way to miss messages. Even if your phone is turned off, WhatsApp will save your messages and display them as soon as you're back online.

There's plenty more (location sharing, contact exchange, message broadcasting) and the app is free for a year, currently $0.99/ year afterwards.

What's New in Version 2.17.42

• Pin chats to the top of your chat list, so you can quickly find them. Just swipe right on a chat and tap the pin icon.
• You can now send documents of any type. To send a document, open a chat, tap attach — document. 
• When you receive multiple photos, you can now tap and hold on the group of photos to quickly forward or delete all of them.
