Default Need Comments on Corel Paint Shop Pro X2

Looking for anyone who has used PS Pro X2........... It is about $50 OEM and looks fully featured. Will it handle RAW?

Any good, bad or ugly comments??

A few of the reviews on Amazon indicate that PSP isn't what it once was, which is too bad. Unfortunately I don't have any relevant info, but I'd really suggest looking at all of the alternatives first.

I have never relied too much on reviews from sites like Amazon. I usually go to sites that deal with the subject at hand and look for reviews from pros. Granted, they may not always be subjective especially if the are owing to a certain manufacturer. But, if you explore enough, I think you can gt a 'feel' for it.
What I am seeing in reviews is that it is improved vastly. New look, more features than Elements, and witha few exceptions, will do just about everything Adobe will. I would like to hear from anyone who has used it, in the trenches, so to speak.

I've heard the same thing so there probably is some truth to it.

I'd just get Photoshop CS3 and be done with it. I have it and it works great and I know I'll never have to worry about getting better software. If you don't want to spend that kind of money, Photoshop Elements works OK, but I'm not sure if it has the capability to do layers or other similar functions.

Yes, Mike, Elements has layering.

I can also recommend picking up a copy of PSP 9 - it is great, and you should be able to find it somewhere for cheap.
