Corel Corporation has announced the release of Corel Paint Shop Pro X and Corel
Photo Album 6, two major new products from Corel's digital imaging portfolio
and the first versions of the software to be introduced since Corel's acquisition
of Jasc in October 2004.



With a revamped user interface featuring a new, integrated Learning Center and
Browser palette, Paint Shop Pro X is designed to accelerate learning and increase
productivity. Tools are organized by task within the Learning Center palette,
enabling users of all skill levels to produce professional-looking results with
no previous photo editing experience required.



Below is an overview of the new and noteworthy features included in Corel Paint
Shop Pro X:

The Paint Shop Pro X Learning Center: The new Learning Center
organizes tools logically by task, providing users with a step-by-step guide and
quick access to the instructions and tools needed to complete the most common
photo editing projects.



Browser Palette: The Browser palette is now integrated into the
Paint Shop Pro X workspace to make it even easier for users to access, view, organize,
and work with their images.



Smart Photo Fix: The new Smart Photo Fix analyzes a photo and
suggests settings to auto-correct color, brightness, sharpness, and saturation
-- all in one step. Smart Photo Fix gives users new levels of control by
allowing them to combine the simplicity of automatic corrections with the precision
and control of manual adjustments.



Makeover Tools: Paint Shop Pro X introduces a powerful new collection
of extreme Makeover Tools to help users quickly and easily retouch the subjects
in their photos. The Makeover Tools include the Blemish Fixer, Toothbrush and
Suntan Brush.



Object Remover: The new Object Remover lets users seamlessly
eliminate unwanted elements from photos, intelligently filling in the resulting
gaps with appropriate background detail.



Special Effects for Black & White Photos: With the new Special
Effects filters in Paint Shop Pro X, users can now easily convert images to simulated
black and white infrared or apply color filters while converting to black and
white images.



Corel Photo Album 6 -- Standard Edition: Included for the
first time with Paint Shop Pro X, Corel Photo Album 6 provides efficient organization,
sharing and photo backup options, along with hundreds of new drag-and-drop creative
project templates.



Advanced Features: Paint Shop Pro X now includes support for
16-bit/channel adjustments, ICC-based color management, the ability to import
and export CMYK images using ICC profiles, along with enhanced monitor calibration
that allows LCD screens to be correctly calibrated.



Camera Raw support: Paint Shop Pro X now supports over forty
Camera Raw file formats. Users can open, enhance, process, and convert images
taken in the Camera Raw format.



Batch Processing: Users can easily process batches of images
with Paint Shop Pro X. The Batch Process command lets them use scripts to apply
fixes to batches of images, and users can also convert batches of images to a
different file format.



Perspective Correction Tool: With the Perspective Correction
tool, users can fix buildings, landmarks, or objects in their photos that appear
to be in the wrong perspective or that were taken from an angle other than directly
in front.



Straighten Tool: The Straighten tool lets users quickly align
crooked photos and automatically crop the edges using any line in the photo.



Pricing and Availability

Available for a suggested retail price of $129 US, Corel Paint Shop Pro X includes
Corel Photo Album 6 -- Standard Edition, Pixmantec® RawShooter™
essentials, two hours of free lynda.com video instruction and a printed user manual.
Corel Photo Album 6 -- Deluxe Edition is available for a suggested retail
