Photo Album 7 vs Paint Shop 2010 vs Express

Post by bobg »

I had PA 7; bought new computer so had to purchase new Corel product. Corel site said PA 7 no longer available & that PS Express was comparable. Bought it but @ download got PS 2010. What;s the scoop? Also @ pic download from camera, PA 7 had dialogue box where i could specifiy that i wanted to delete pics on camera memory card. This product doesn't have that - or at least i don't see it. True? Should i have bought a different product for modest/simple pic download/edit/share?

Welcome to the forums, :)

Well I don't have any experience or knowledge of this specific part of Corel Digital Studio, which bundles several programs;
  • Corel VideoStudio 2010
  • Corel DVD Factory 2010
  • Corel Paintshop Photo Express 2010
  • Corel WinDVD 2010
VideoStudio Express and DVD Factory 2010 are not worth the time and trouble to download. When Corel released VS X3, they included VideoStudio Express 2010 as the Easy Edit portion, and DVD Factory 2010 as the DVD authoring application. After the mass complaints about DVD Factory 2010, Corel replaced it with a trimmed down version of DVD MovieFactory 7 Pro, which was called DVD MovieFactory 7SE.

I would guess that Paintshop Photo Express is along the same lines as those two. However I can't really say, as I've never looked at it. I use the full version of Paintshop Pro, which their latest version PSP X3 has proven to be a real mess, riddled with bugs. So far they have released 5 patches, if that tells you anything.

Corel Paintshop 2010 and Express are one in the same program. Sometimes it's referred to as Paintshop Express, and others as Paintshop 2010.

Just like what Ron said the PS 2010 is the same as the Corel Paintshop Photo Express 2010 and about the dialogue box where you can specifiy that you wanted to delete pics on camera memory card, it appears that you are referring to the Corel Photo Downloader, which is also included when you purchased PaintShop Photo Pro X3. If you want to use PaintShop Pro X3, you can download and use the trial version for 30 days via http://www.corel.com/trials.
