Add your requests for what you would like to see included in the next version of PSP.

PLEASE keep the topic free from discussions and critiques on why someone's idea is feasible or not. This will make it easier for the Corel team to read through and extract ideas.

Discussions will be removed/relocated from this topic.

I'd love to see Geotagging options return.
I understand that Corel can't (or doesn't want to) use Google Maps anymore, but please give us that formular fields to enter the coordinates manually.

I'd love to see a configuration option where we could choose for feature controls to default to zero or current image state instead of last-used.

I would like to see more options for the pictopainting, and if we can add our own images for an option if possible. I would also like to an animation program using frames, like the old animations shop, and/or maybe more options on photo Mirage to make it a bit more like Animations shop using frames?

When I install a new version it asks if I want to auto update content from the previous versions. When ever I have tried it does not do it. I would be good to remember previous purchases with our logins and also update brushes, masks, tubes etc......using the same path as the previous installed versions. (I have several previous versions installed). I have just switched to a new PC, and re added my PSP programs, and logins, but it assumes I am a new customer, yet I have a document history of all previous programs purchased. (I guess this is done manually?)

- Better hue map (horizontal with +/- 0 position) perhaps integrated in the HSL dialog

- Better Exif informations like Exiftools...

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 checkbox to disable it)
- Settings for messages and ads should be moved into the main Preferences/Settings window.
- Fixing and improving the switch of UI language, without the need of PSP restart and destroying of entire workspace (required while making tutorials and for talking to other PSP users)
- Improving rendering performance
- Better and more vector manipulation tools
- More creative and realistic effects, some of the existing effects could be improved massively
- Bringing back the old basic crop tool as option
- Generators for textures, materials and normal maps
- Grouping of guides and toggling those groups
- One combined export window for web formats (PNG, JPEG, JPEG2000, WebP, SVG), with the format stored in custom presets, so we can export faster into target format, depending on the project we are working on. The format settings can be grouped into tabs.
- Full SVG support, including saving/exporting them. Needed in particular to export vector shapes to make graphics for websites.
- Custom shapes for Inner/Outer Bevel
- Exporting of WebP files with all settings possible (currently one can save a WebP file without any settings available)
- Fixing the bugs and issues I already reported (I don't report anymore because Corel support was very rude to me)
- One unique version number: PSP 2019 has the internal version number 21.1.0.22, which is confusing. The internal version number should be the only one.
- A community driven Wiki for the PSP Scripting API, but hosted on corel.com
- Layer protection, or Selectable/Unselectable flag, to avoid underlying layer are accidentally moved or otherwise modified
- Drag&Drop of multiple selected folders and files into the batch converter
- After running batch converter it should stay open without loosing my settings, so I still have a chance to change them, if output is not ok.
- A tool to generate CSS Image Sprites directly from selected vector shapes or layers in the file.
- Information about developing own plugins is required.
- Finally, Corel should give up developing PSP and publish the code under an open-source licence. Since Corel took over from Jasc, PSP is getting worse update by update. Changes made in recent years are mostly cosmetic, and development is far behind of what is needed.

Compatibility with plugins.

I'm with Ravelli, I'm not sure why I keep paying for updates, I'm also a longtime user since Jasc PSP 5. I guess I hope that Corel will actually bring in something worth while. This is probably my last "upgrade", but here are some things I'd like added/re-added/fixed:

- Bring back the old 'JPEG Artifact Removal' tool, the new 'AI Artifact Removal' tool literally [literally!] doesn't do anything for me. Having both would be fine by me. This is one of the few things I still do in PSP.
- GPU powered zooming in the 'Complete' workspace. While working with full resolution photos, like camera or stock photos, zooming (and panning while zoomed in) stutters quite a lot. This has been a long time "feature" request ever since you took over from Jasc.
- No Ads! Understandable for free software, but not for software I paid for.
- Adding back the auto 5 minute save feature would be nice.

Please fix the keyboard shortcuts for Adjust Sharpness, which have been wrong since the year dot. I don't want Skin Smoothing to pop up instead!

Hi, long-time PSP user here -- from the dim dark past before JASC bought the programme.

Situation: Running a script with one or more operations in interactive mode, e.g. "curves."
I would like the chang(es) I make in the operation ("curves") to be passed to the script for the next use. For example: if I apply a +15 red correction to file 001 and finish the script, that +15 red will already be applied to file 002 when I run the script again.

Batch processing is not a viable workaround as the process needs to be interactive since not all the files will need the exact same correction.

My suggestion is to create a PSP version for serious users with only the Complete workspace and support for all plugins including older 32-bit plug-ins and a PSP "Essentials" version that is geared toward newbies where you could include some ideas from the Essentials, Photography, etc. workspaces.
