PhotoPerfect 3 has been tremendously speeded up through an array of measures like parallel processing, advanced hardware acceleration, caching etc... Overall it is noticeably faster and in complex operations more responsive than the previous version. The speed gain is - depending on system specs--up to 1600% for certain functionalities. PhotoPerfect 3 is able to utilize more than 2 processors/cores and also runs on 64-bit Windows systems. So it is now not only very fast on normal systems but also blazing fast on high-end ones. The completely re-developed and greatly enhanced retouching panel now offers you much more options for playing with your creativity and creating your masterworks without messing with resources-consuming layers. For quality-conscious photographers, the advanced and faster RAW import dialog and the new 48-bit-editing mode ensure quick, seamless and lossless processing from RAW to high-end TIFF files. Additionally several new features have been added to facilitate your digital workflow (e.g. correcting underwater images or light equalizing in LAB mode) and a bunch of user requested fine-tune options have been implemented to make PhotoPerfect 3 even more joyful to use. PhotoPerfect 3 is 100% Windows 7 compatible and offers the latest RAW converter, which supports RAW files of most currently available digital cameras and DSLRs.
