    "The best yet"

    September 30, 2004  |   By bbb2020


    This is by far the best version of PSP since version 5.0 (the first version I'd tried).
    Even through it is 25MB bigger than version 8, it loads quicker and it doesnÂ’t take up as much system resources.

    The interface looks much like the previous version but with some major improvements.
    The palettes can be docked in a more user-friendly way (the way you want it) and they can even be made to slide in and out of the screen, to make the workspace bigger.

    The all new history palette allows you to delete in-between actions while keeping the later commands.
    It also allows you to save the command-list for use on another picture. Or make a script out of it.

    You can now bind a script to any icon, place it wherever you want, make a shortcut to go with it, do what you like.

    The new Mixer palette lets you mix different colours as if you were working with real paint. You decide what brush you want to do the mixing with.

    The best Image Browser in any images software has improved.

    The program now supports Raw (unprocessed) images from digital cameras and most important, it also support CMYK (if you donÂ’t know what that is, you donÂ’t need it).

    This is just a few of the many improvements Jasc put into this new version.

    If youÂ’re into PSP, and still have one of the old versions, there has never been a bigger or better reason to upgrade. Give it a try.

    YouÂ’re a novice and you feel overwhelmed by this, do a search on Google for PSP, and you get over 4 millions hits. You donÂ’t find a bigger support group anywhere.
