Grand Prize Winner: Rick K

I love the new PaintShop Pro 2018’s improved navigation and bigger icons. It allows me to better express my creativity with Editing the RAW image. The reason for submitting an IR image edited with PaintShop Pro 2018 is to show that PaintShop Pro 2018 can easily handle editing RAW IR images. Editing RAW IR images is a multistep process involving a red/blue color swap and precise color saturation and white balance settings. Using PaintShop Pro 2018 the editing process is very easy and the steps can be saved allowing for fast repeatable editing of several RAW images quickly. The picture I am submitting for the contest was taken on the first full day of Fall 2017 using a Canon T1i converted specifically to take IR images. This image was taken using a 665nm IR filter on the Canon T1i. The camera was positioned on the Doyle road covered bridge in Jefferson, OH and pointed at Mill Creek.

Second Place Winner: Kristin G

I’m new to digital photography post-processing, but I downloaded the free trial from Corel and used it to edit this photo that I took back in October 2011 in Acadia National Park in Maine. I watched many of the tutorials on the Corel site and they are a good way to feel ones way around the program and get a taste of the possibilities. The program is powerful yet does not seem overly complicated to learn. I definitely am excited to use Corel to take my photos to the next level. Thank You!

Third Place Winner: Charlie Hoffman

Colors of Fall ~ Wow….Having used Corel products for years the new PaintShop Pro 2018 Ultimate makes my work output a snap. This photo was taken overlooking the Lackawaxen River in the Pocono Mts. of Pennsylvania.
