    Default Does ANYone use Corel Paint Shop Pro Photo x2 x3 or x4?

    Hi,

    Until I can invest in Photoshop, I'm trying to get used to Corel Paint Shop Pro Photo. I had x2 but recently upgraded to x4.

    Does anyone else use this? Know anything about it? Or where I can find good tutorials or plugins?

    I am so lost :\

    Thanks!

    I use X2 and have X4. I also use LR3.

    What did you need to know?

    Well, I know next to nothing aside from contrast, brightness, saturation, etc.

    Anyway, I'm looking to do something like the photos on this website: (which I just quickly googled to give you an idea of what I'm trying to achieve) cozyimpressionsphotography.com Lovely Ladies {Austin Baby & Toddler Photographer}

    Here is a photo I took that looks very dull and flat. I want that bright dreamy look but have no idea how to get it.

    How did you learn to use PSP?

    Thanks

    Installing plug ins so I can tinker with them.

    Mostly just tinkering to see what worked, what I liked and using layers to pull in multiple effects.

    I got X2 for $25 and it does everything I need and more.
