Corel PaintShop Pro X8 Ultimate Features
Instantly fill a selection or vector shape with text that automatically wraps within it.
Create interesting design elements for web graphics, posters, scrapbooking, brochures, collages, and other projects.
Edit faster with this content-aware tool that automatically replaces the background when you move an object or person. Drag your selection to a new position and the empty area is filled in to match the surrounding background.
More precise selections
Accurate selections are essential in photo-editing software. PaintShop Pro X8 lets you define a selection size by height and width, or with a fixed aspect ratio, for easier, more precise selections.
Apply Lens Correction tools automatically within the Edit workspace or the Camera RAW Lab to quickly correct the distortions, vignetting and chromatic aberrations that are commonly introduced by most camera lenses.
With speed gains of 40 - 120%, many brushes are faster and more responsive than ever. Plus, a larger maximum brush size of 3,000 pixels lets you cover more area, more quickly.
Enjoy up to 50% faster performance with Smart Edge, which works with several tools to help keep your brush strokes "inside the lines".
Amazing photo restoration
Bring your old family photos back to life with powerful photo restoration tools. Use the Fade Correction tool to restore the color and contrast of faded photos and the Scratch Remover to repair unsightly cracks in tattered photos to make them look new again.
Easily cut objects out of extra-large image files, thanks to 64-bit performance. Use it to perform a number of tasks on your large files, such as removing an object from its original background or copying an extracted image and placing it in a different photo.
Text and Shape Cutting
Instantly create a photo object by using text or a shape to clip an underlying photo or image. Then paste or drag it to any image as a layer. The new Cutter Preview lets you see exactly what you are cutting before you cut.
