I like it. It does everything I need, and then some. I'm sure someone will come along and "poo, poo" Paintshop Pro and tell you to go with Lightroom, but for the cost difference, Paintshop Pro does a great job.

Paintshop Pro 9, or Paintshop Pro X9 (nineteen) ?!

Nine is over 10 years old. Nineteen is the current version...I have PSP16 loaded and have been dragging my feet on upgrading, as I have not bothered to see what new capabilities might be of interest.
Been using PSP since it was JASCO product, before it was purchased by Corel. Everyone once in a few new releases, I upgrade, skipping editions. In fact, your post caused me to investigate PSPX8 vs. PSPX9, and I found a real bargain on the new PSPX9 Ultimate, and bought it (only 1 avail)!

I think of Adobe Photoshop (classic) as highly oriented to graphic artists, Adobe Elements as more oriented to photographers, and Corel Paintshop Pro as in between the two, but definitely more leaning at photographers than it is toward graphic arts professionals. The embedded RAW conversion is not as powerful as the dedicated RAW conversion in Photoshop or Lightroom. Certainly cheaper to upgrade than even Photoshop Elements, especially if you do not have to have the absolutely latest version!

I still use the old Jasc PSP9 and like its simple interface compared to later Corel versions. I first process using Lightroom, then PSP to finish, partly because IMHO the old PSP has a far better cloning tool than LR.

Seeing your post peaked my curiosity. So I dug out my copy of Jasc PSP 9 to see if it would even run on my Win10. I was surprised that it does, so I've been playing around with it. :-)

Enjoy it! I also run Win10 and was pleasantly surprised when PSP9 ran with no problems. And I'm sometimes surprised by how, even after I've tweaked an image all I can with LR, sometimes my old PSP improves it still more by one click on the "AutoFIx" button. Resizing is also extremely simple.

Just proves that the newest is not always best.
