PSP v9

Woo! Oh, oh!

I've heard some very negative stuff about this. Beta testers claim that bugs from the last beta were never fixed, and that this release is horribly premature.
Are they right? I dont know.

PSP is my favourite prog, as you know, but I wont buy this just yet. :/

I guess it depends on how regularly Jasc release patches/fixes too... you could be waiting a while... Rolleyes
Greetings ST!

Yes, but v8 hasnt been around that long, and patches have come out fairly often. I last patched v8 only a few months ago.
To be honest, I dont feel that I know v8 fully yet, never mind v9. :/

Hmmmm, no sign of v9 here.

So what is new in V9?
Copied from the product website:

* Digital Camera Noise Removal Filter scans photos and removes image noise while intelligently preserving image textures.
* Chromatic Aberration Removal Filter eliminates the purple fringe that often appears in digital photographs.
* Fill Flash Filter corrects the underexposure of shadows. The Backlighting Filter compensates for overexposed areas.
* Raw camera images. Paint Shop Pro 9 includes integrated support for Raw camera images (digital negatives) from several popular camera models.
* Set custom white balance, exposure and sharpening levels when converting Raw camera images for use in Paint Shop Pro.

* Art Media tools include Oil Brush, Acrylic Brush, Chalk, Pastel, Crayon, Colored Pencil and Marker.
* Palette Knife and Smear Tool realistically mix paints on the canvas. The Art Eraser provides an easy way to remove paint from the canvas.
* A new Mixer Palette provides an off-canvas area to experiment and mix custom colors together.
* Art Media Layers allow users to adjust the canvas texture, lighting and paint wetness properties of their artwork.
* Use Image Tracing options as an easy way to paint a photograph or other image using realistic brush strokes.

* Rectangle and Ellipse Tools simplify buttons, banners and other custom graphics. The Rectangle tool gives full control over rounded corners for custom buttons.
* Symmetric Shape Tool allows users to create polygons and stars then edit them into custom artistic shapes. Users can edit shape properties at any time, not just at creation.
* The Text Tool features vertical text layout options and new anti-alias rendering choices that render cleaner text at smaller font sizes.
* A simplified Pen Tool makes it easier than ever to add lines and curves to graphics.
* The new Displacement Map Filter creates custom two- or three-dimensional surface effects for graphics based on an underlying image.
* Users can add spin, twist and zoom blur effects to images with the Radial Blur Filter.

* New History Palette tracks each command applied to an image, making it easy to manage complex editing projects.
* Powerful Selective Undo functionality allows users to easily undo any individual editing step in a document’s history. Save selected history steps to the clipboard or as scripts for use with another image.
* Resource Categorization: Users can now organize their Paint Shop Pro resource files by projects or subjects in flexible resource categories.
* New Text Options in print layout make it easier than ever to add custom captions and titles to photo layouts.
* A new Information Window in the browser allows users to view image details, creator information, and EXIF data for any selected image. Sort images in the Browser using EXIF data to find specific photos.

Sounds interesting actually... I might just join the rebel PSP faction together with Rufus... Smile
