I have used the evaluation copy several times to get used to the controls. I was extremely impressed with the quality and, a price that I can afford!

Have downloaded the trial, the best photo editing prog I've found!

I had trouble with PaintShopPro after years of use and was looking for a replacement. I like your product much better. Thanks!!

I have struggled with the complexity of Photoshop Elements for about 2 years and still don't really understand what I'm doing half the time. My good results are more by accident than anything. After only 2 weeks with your trial version I really feel that I understand what I am doing and how to use the software. Really like curves and masks. Thought I would miss having layers but now they just seem to add complexity compared to PWP. You should advertise more. This is a GREAT product priced at a level the amateur photographer like me can afford.

At last, a photography program by and for photographers!!!! Organized by process with everything you need at hand for that process! It's been years since I've had so much fun producing QUALITY prints!

Nice prpgram,easy to find my way around it,got p.s.p. also on trial,opted for yours because it's not as bloated,helfull demo too, do you have any support forum's?.

You're really filling a void!

I used the trial version - great product for photographers.

You need to advertise more widely!

The only photo editing software that I have ever been able to use!

Liked the extensive manual and white papers on your website, gave me a head start doing a proper evaluation. I also use PSP X, I find your interface and workflow a bit less convenient, but your program has more extensive control options. That's why I still bought it.

Very nice software, very intelligent and well-supported.
