Corel now owns Paint shop Pro

PSP is now owned by Corel. It's more expensive now also.

They don't support older versions of PSP from the Jasc days, so beware of buying it at a discounted on eBay or anywhere else if it's version 8 or older. When Corel took over they almost immediately came out with version 9. I still like 7 the best. It's not a memory hog as 8 is and most likely 9 is worse.

I used to have problems with scanning old newspaper articles and old documents. I would scan in grey scale then convert to black and white. Voila the dark background disappeared. I did this with PSP. An earlier version, but I'm sure it still works in the newer ones.

Thanks for the heads up. Geesh, you need a pedigree chart to keep track of who owns what.

Happy family tree climbing!
