Re: Text Issue

Hello MarilynneT1707, some older versions had a conflict with the GPU driver, while a web browser was running in the background. Then turning off Hardware Acceleration in the browser helped. Windows 10 is also known to cause all kind of problems. Ensure, that you have all updates installed, even the...

Re: [Sticky] -- Wishlist for PSP 2022

PSP is my daily bread since 1992. I use it professionally and private, nowadays for texturing virtual worlds and in web design. I'm still using PSP 2019, because the last updates were not attractive enough paying for. My wishes are: - Feature to disable all(!) ads (still receiving ads without a chec...

Re: Does the automatic correction of lenses work in PaintSho

Hi all, I'm no expert on raw image editing, but when I load a Sony *.arw file from my RX100, PSP 2019 does not show it correctly, so I have to apply a fish-eye-lens correction. The camera is from 2013 and officially supported by PSP, but apparently not fully. Friendly greetings, Ravelli p.s.: I supp...

Re: Calculation of default line spacing

Hello migf1, and many thanks for your reply and the effort taking the screen capture. Yes, this manual setting would be an alternative, but causing maybe a month of work to adjust all my current project files. It would also cause additional work each time I create a new work. I want PSP and the font...

Calculation of default line spacing

Ahoy everybody, does anyone happen to know how PSP calculates the default line spacing ? Is it using winAscent, winDescent or something else? And is there a way to overwrite it, or even a fixed state? Background of this is, I have two font files installed, old and new version of the same font face, ...

Re: Paintshop Pro 2021

Regarding to the PDF Comparsion Chart there are no big changes compared to PSP 2019, so I can keep sticking with it. I wished they would focus more on improving the editor for better graphic design.

Re: Windows Backgrounds Turn Yellow

I just received a help request about this issue, so I looked through this thread. What I wonder about, and maybe someone can answer it, following your steps above, do you really keep Color Management turned off? Or do you turn it on again after resetting workspace via holding Space on PSP launch? Fr...

Re: Insert of *.png with transparent background does not wor

your PNG has 256 colors only, probably a particular color is defined as alpha channel, which does not get detected initially, but hitting SHIFT+V should enable transparency on your file. edit: unfortunately, my screenshot is in German only, but should be enough to show you the menu path: https://sni...

Re: Insert of *.png with transparent background does not wor

I get the described issue when I copy&paste a PNG from a different application into PSP (CTRL+C > CTRL+V, aka using the Clipboard). But it works correct, when I drag&drop the PNG at first into PSP, so it opens as separate file, who's one layer I copy&paste into the file where I want to have it.

Re: PaintShopPro 2020 ~ Why not to Upgrade

Hello Kira, you totally speak out of my heart with your initial post. The Close All option I suggested to Corel in 2015, because I have it in most software I use. Corel's reply was, that I'm wrong, and that "User behavior changes and people like short ways and not the detour via file menu." They hav...

Re: PSP 2020 is out

Thank you for your response, Zantara.
Perhaps this new version was originally meant to be a minor update.

Hello JoeB, thank you for asking, so I could triple-check what I couldn't believed myself. turned out, the plugins in question are installed as 32-bit and 64-bit - I saw only the 32-bit ones. Sorry for the confusion, Linda! (The plugins are from the Flaming Pear Freebie collection, but this fact is ...

Re: Shopping for PSP 2018

1) On Windows SHIFT+F9 should show you the small Manager in the Editor. (I never use it) 2) The 64-bit version can address more memory of your computer. All 32-bit applications are limited to 2 GB only. You should work generally with the 64-bit version. For the case you want to use an old plugin whi...
