Corel Introduces PaintShop Pro X7 & PaintShop Pro X7 Ultimate

Corel introduced PaintShop Pro X7 and PaintShop Pro X7 Ultimate today, which are the latest editions to the company's line of professional quality image-editing and design software. The new imaging software features Magic Fill, which provides content aware editing that works with your favorite selection tools. With the tool, you can erase any unwanted elements in your photo and replace them seamlessly with content that matches the background, even if it is textured or varied.

The brushes (including the Paint Brush, Air Brush and Photo Retouching Brushes) are now 30 percent faster. The Text and Shape Cutter tools let you instantly create unique photo objects using text or various shapes. Simply paste or drag the photo object to any image to build a collage. The Materials Pallet features Color Harmonies that lets you find the color, texture or pattern you want faster or sample color with the Dropper tool to make your own palettes.

Popular effects such as Selective Focus, Vignette, Retro Labs, Graduated Filters and more have been redesigned. The Image Dialog, Layers workflow and the Smart Edge features are also faster, easier to use and offer more control.

This latest version of the software now supports XMP files to make it easer to work with other photo management applications like Corel’s AfterShot Pro. PaintShop Pro X7 enables you to learn as you go with the aid of the built-in training tools—including the award-winning Learning Center and video tutorials. Corel Photo Video Suite X7 is also available.
