I just had to pop in and thank the developers. Almost of my plugins (some going back to PSP 7) are working again, which have been iffy over the years in different versions! No issues with Nik plugins either. Love the speed of 2019 as well <3 :)

So far ... and bearing in mind I haven't gotten very far yet ... I like that there is a very good support system readily available for users, both new and old. This forum, for instance, is marvelous. Making the move from Photoshop to PSP2019 has proven to be a steep learning curve for me as I have been using PhotoShop for 20+ years. Editing photos is not my day job ... though product photos are a large and necessary part of my website, which I only update twice a year.

I LOVE that I can customize my tool bar, getting rid of items I never use and replacing them with tools I always use. It speeds up the workflow process a great deal.

Many of the tools are intuitive (user-friendly), while "some" others ... well not so much. I am having a very hard time making the "smart select" tool work for me with any degree of accuracy, but I assume I am not "getting it" just yet. Most other tools I need are even better than what PhotoShop provides ... which was a very nice surprise. I think the text tool is terrific ... if a little buggy at times.

I very much appreciated being invited to a webinar earlier today and look forward to more like it. I have made good use of several YouTube videos and the video tutorials on this site as well. I would ask anyone producing a "how to" video to please set your tool icons to the "large" setting, so we can see what you are selecting. A lot of the tutorials are rather fast-paced and the users clearly have way better eyesight than I. Remember, we are looking at a small video, not a full screen. :D

I think the thing I like best of all is the "straighten tool". What a magnificent time saver that one is! I take almost all my photos onboard yachts ... and well, they move. I am always having to correct the horizon and that tool is going to save me hours and hours of editing time. Just love it! :D

ON the home page I love the gallery for extras, though some of the items are a bit expensive. I also love the Circular icons at the bottom for Tutorials and shortcuts etc.

I also love Pic to Painting, but would like to see more choices or be able to install more choices, being a member of a photo group I can recognise who has used the Pictopainting for their photos. It would also be nice to have variations as some of the plugins have to change it up a bit.

I love Photo Mirage too, but again would like some more settings to change it up a bit.

I am happy that you have provided 32bit and 64bit versions of these programs and that I am able to use some of my old 32 bit plugins in the 32bit version. I have been using PSP since the early days of Jasc. over the years I have amassed a large collection of Plugins, I keep one of the old versions installed so that I can use them all, it's a shame I cant use them all in the current versions of Corel, I realise this is down to the designers who create these plugins as they were made in 32bit, it would be great if there was some way to all of make them work or if Corel could create something similar.

I am loving using 2018 & 2019 I do enjoy working with the programs, and I use them on a lot for Photography, scrapbooking and graphic designs.

What I like about PSP7 (2000 version) is that it still runs on Win 10 -- I initially ran it on Win 95 and Win 98 (simultaneously).

PSP 2018 ran fine on Win7 (RIP) and runs fine on the unfortunate Win 10.
