First, I think it is important that Corel began adding several features to PSP because it is falling behind in relation to Photoshop, Affinity Photo and others photo editing programs. This is my wishlist for 2022.
1. Add more Adjustment layers, like "Recolor", "Selective Color", "Black and White", etc.
2. The option to create live filter, like a live filter for the Gaussian Blur option.
3. More options to process photos in color spaces different from sRGB. The ability to do edits in some color spaces and later be able to change the photo to another color space.
4. This I have asked before: the 'clipping warnings" - the ability to see in different colors the pixels that are too bright or too dark.
5. Fix the bugs that are there since several versions back.
Later I will add some others items. I hope Corel is listening.

Another item for the Wishlist for PSP 2022:
6. Add the option to process panoramas automatically, i.e. the ability to just tell PSP the photos you want to be processed for the panorama, and PSP automatically align the photos and produce the panorama. And after the process is finished, the user should have the option to fix any perfective problem and crop as necessary.

Could PaintShop Pro 2022 add .PDF to the "save as" list of file format options?

PDF isn't an image format.
You can use a PDF printer to do that (like PDFCreator, BullZip, DoPdf, Primo, etc).

OK, so I have two scenarios.

On my main home PC as specced on my details and using a 1TB NVMe SSD for C: Drive, it's not that slow to open to be fair at around 16-20 seconds.

However, I also have it installed on my work laptop and frequently use it for minor editing of screenshots which means I open it quite frequently during the day. It is here that it is very slow opening. The window opens reasonably quickly in around 20 seconds but then it can take between 25 to 70 seconds to become usable and allowing me to paste in the image I want to work with. If I'm disconnected from the Internet opening can be reduced to around 30-35 seconds overall suggesting it is polling Corel for information prior to opening. I've tried disabling the splash screen but it makes little measurable difference so I prefer it on to see that it is actually opening and now I'm trialling disabling product related messages.

I've installed both 32 & 64 bit versions and tend towards the 64 bit as it seems faster.

I've been using PSP since the very early days when it was JASC shareware and purchased nearly every Corel Version with only the last few versions becoming noticeably slower. Whilst I appreciate the programme is somewhat more complex than it used to be and I equally appreciate I'm using a sledgehammer to crack a nut on my work laptop, I still find it a little frustrating that it is so slow to open.

I suppose my original request on the wish list is that it would be good for PSP to open locally without having to poll the internet or whatever it is doing.

If you have any recommendations to speed things up, I would appreciate them.

Thank you
