How rare is it to take a photo and actually have all the kids looking at the same time? I was amazed that I was able to capture all their faces. While I was happy with the original picture I knew it could be even better with a few easy edits using PaintShop Pro X8. The photo on the  the right is so much better because the details are sharper, the colors are truer, and the picture is brighter. The faces in the original photo are just too orange, every one looks a bit like an Oompa Loompa. Let me tell that this edit was done in two simple steps. I used the Instant Effects tool to add some back lighting to the photo. Then I used the Smart Photo Fix tool which adjusted several aspects of the photo automatically. That’s it and my photo looks so much better.

PaintShop Pro is very approachable ad user friendly. You can stick with simple adjustments or jump into the deep end and do some very powerful edits. PaintShop Pro X8 has almost all of the power of Photo shop only at a much more affordable price. As promised Vacation Maybe readers can use this special discount code to save $20 off the purchase or upgrade of PaintShop Pro X8 (Pro & Ultimate), just enter the discount code 2930 during checkout.

There is so much more you can do with this photo editing software but for me right now in my crazy busy life I just want to make my so-so vacation photos into AMAZING vacation photos. Now I can get it done because PaintShop Pro is so easy to use. Bonus: It also helps you organize and find your photos using the manage photo portion of the application. I am all over that – I can’t wait to organize them by trip but also start tagging them so I can find my photos easily.  I would love to know how you plan to use PaintShop Pro X8. Please share your creative ideas or photo creations with us.

wow, there is a pretty big difference between those before & after photos. Considering how limited my camera skills are, I could use this.

Tamra Phelps - 4 years ago Reply

That is a noticeable difference in the photos. And I like that discount, too! It’s definitely something I could use.

$20 off is a pretty nice discount. This would be a nice gift for myself, lol.

I stink as a photographer, so I could use this! It could really help me make my photos presentable.

I really like that it’s just a few simple steps to fix a photo. I’m not the most tech savvy person, so I need it to be easy!

I could really use a good photo editing software. This one sounds and looks great. Thanks for the fun & useful review and information!

I only have a land line phone. I wouldn’t know how to use a phone to take a photo. Or even use it, I’m ashamed to admit. I’m sooo behind on anything like that.

I love the discount & it’s great that they have a free trial period, too.

Tamra Phelps - 4 years ago Reply

This does look like a great tool to have. I definitely like that discount!

I had a different version of Paintshop on my old computer, when it went, I could not salvage the programs. Mine was not as automatic as this version, but I love paintshop! Thanks for the review.

I’m a horrible photographer! I definitely could use one of these set-ups!

I used to be really into paint shop pro. I did tubes and animation and in fact taught on online class on building animation years ago! (back in 2000) I loved pllaying with the ayers and such and miss doing it.

I think I might put this on my Christmas want list! It would help me out!

Tamra Phelps - 4 years ago Reply

I would probably stick to simple adjustments, lol. I would need time to learn to use it.

Love paintshop! I was surprised how much of a difference it made in your photo. I thought it was great to begin with, Now, it’s spectacular. Thanks for the review.

Tamra Phelps - 4 years ago Reply

It looks pretty impressive. If only it had a button that would remove about 20 pounds, lol.

My picture taking skills leave a lot to be desired so this would really come in handy. I like that it helps to get them organized too.

Tamra Phelps - 4 years ago Reply

I’m definitely putting this on my Christmas list! I need it if Christmas photos are going to look ok.

I have a beautiful photo of my baby, Punkin. She passed a year ago May with cancer. I adjusted her photo, Love what you can do with the photos!

Tamra Phelps - 4 years ago Reply

I think I need to get this for myself & call it an early Christmas gift, lol! That sounds goo.
