If you use PSP just for the creative tube tutorials, PSP hasn't offered anything worthwile for a lot of versions. To be exact, the only reason you need to upgrade is because your Jasc or old Corel PSP versions don't work on a newer Windows 10 version.AlicatArt wrote:I have been a loyal customer of Corel PSP, purchasing nearly every version and been a member of many PSP groups over the years. I know of a lot of people that use Corel, and the majority use the Filters/plugins, and therefore require the 32 bit version as only a small number of filters/plugins that we use work on 64 bit version. There will be quite a lot of people who may not wish to get version 2021, if they are not able to use the plugins.
We have been doing our hobby for many many years, most using Jasc versions prior to Corel. Yes, they can stick with their older versions for the plugins, but some may not like more than one version installed. Can I ask why they are no longer supporting 32 bit?
I have not bought the new version yet, and not yet decided whether to purchase as I am waiting on feedback on the new features from others.
So far only MuRa seems to be a problem. All other old plugins still work with my PSP 2020
The world of creative tube tutorials and easy tags etc. is shrinking. People switch from a payed domain to a free one, but give up because of the many restrictions on free sites.
More and more tubers and other material creators switch their attention to other things.
Therefore the market for creative tube tutorials is shrinking
With that the race to be one of the first to have the new PSP version
Ik have switched to photo-editing a while ago and for those of us that focus on that, PSP has enough to offer and enough to get irritated about, too.
It is completely personal, but I am exited about the new PSP with its AI effects and workspaces. There is plenty old stuff revamped to appear like something new, like AI HDR Studia, which is Pic-to-Painting with new effects.
I like the new workspaces. I decide what I want with a photo and know now which space has the correct tools and effects for me.
It's all about what you want from PSP. Enjoy your creative tags etc? Then an upgrade might not be of any benefit and you are better of sticking with an older version so you can work in 32-bit with the filters.
PSP 2021 is 64-bit based, although you should install the combination 32-bit/64-bit of the full version.
Maybe there is a new creative world to be discovered, using tubes, kits, masks and other materials and use them in PSP 2021 64-bit
There are quite a few familiar filtermakers that have switched to 64-bit. Xero did, just before they went off-air
You have just given me the inspiration to look in to that. Thank you!
And there is always Filters Unlimited to use in the 32-bit PSP or keep a previous PSP version installed alongside PSP 2021 to use your old filters.
I'm not trying to sell PSP 2021. I would just like to be positive for once when I feel dat for me personally that is the case. And I would like to share it with you.
