Anybody use PSP X?

Discussion in 'Retouching and Post Processing' started by dougkess, Dec 15, 2005.

  1. Just curious. I have found it very intuitive and yes, even fun to use. It seems to have quite a bit of muscle for the price.
     
  2. Yes I have been using it. I find it very easy to use compared to Photoshop, in fact I find I am using it more often than any other editing programme.
     
  3. I have PSP 9 and like it. In fact at home - I have PSP-X in my shopping basket, just need to click the Purchase button. I have been PSP for years and find that most things the Photoshop can do, PSP can do too. I think PSP-X now supports raw?

    PSP X does support Nikon Raw and you DO NOT need RSE....

    Does a pretty good job to.
     
  5. Ahhh Gale! You just made me spend more money. Guess I am gonna go ahead and buy it. LOL
     
  6. Gale or anybody know if PSP-X supports the pen tablets? I am thinking I want to try one of these out as well - seems like it would be easier/funner to edit with a pen tablet. I have never used one but, seems like a cool Xmas present to myself.
     
  7. I can not think of any reason the Wacom or a pen/mouse would not work with that. go fer it. have fun.

    Yes PSP supports the tablet.
     
  9. I downloaded PSP-X (Trial Version) I cannot get it to open NEF files from my D70s. I think it is supports Nikon NEF files but, no worky. I am missing something here?
     
  10. Well I am baffled?

    Found this on Corel Support Site

    Does Paint Shop Pro X support Raw pictures files from my digital camera?
    Details

    Support for the following cameras models was added in version 10.01. Click Here for a list of issues that were addressed in 10.01.

    Nikon® D50
    Canon® EOS Kiss Digital N

    This list will be expanded in future updates of Paint Shop Pro X (use the Help > Check for Updates menu item to check for and download updates). As an alternate option, you may want to consider using RawShooter Essentials, by Pixmantec, if your camera is currently unsupported by Paint Shop Pro X's built in support.

    RawShooter Essentials comes with Paint Shop Pro X and can be used to convert digital camera Raw files into TIFF files for editing in Paint Shop Pro X. You can also download RawShooter Essentials from the Free Trials page on Corel.com Note: RawShooter Essentials is supported by Pixmantec. See the Support menu at www.pixmantec.com for more information on Pixmantec support.


    Clearly, it suppose to support D70 NEF files but, I cannot get it to open a NEF file. Rebooted, reinstalled nada. Hmmmm........... Unless D70 NEF is different from D70s - I thought they were the same format?

    Somebody, know anything I can try?
     
  11. Mark,
    I am not positive, but PRETTY SURE the D70s is a different NEF than the D70, and based on the information you recieved would expect that is the problem.

  12. Dave,

    I suppose you right. I did not think they would be different but, perhaps they are. That would be a problem.

    Can someone email me a NEF file taken with a D70?
     
  13. Just released 10.02 - It now supports aRGB and can open a D70s NEF! :biggrin: Yippeeee.....
