Sad news

December 21st, 2009 PSP Instructors

We have some very sad news to share. Last week, Phyllis List passed away in her sleep after a long battle with cancer. Many of you know Phyllis from her classes in PSP.

Phyllis had been active in graphics since 1996, and she once said that the day she stopped learning would be the day she’d “lie down and give up the ghost”. She certainly made good on that resolve and is an inspiration to us all.

Phyllis was a wonderful instructor and a great colleague, and we’re all going to miss her very much.

Here Today, Gone Tomorrow…

November 29th, 2008 PSP Instructors

It wasn’t long ago that I mentioned Paint Shop Pro Photo Magazine. Unfortunately, the current state of the world economy has had a negative effect even here – the magazine’s last printed issue will be issue 8. The web site will remain open, but it isn’t yet clear how active it will be or what new content will appear.

It’s sad to see another PSP resource fading away.

Not Quite a New Version

September 15th, 2008 PSP Instructors

September is about the time we can expect a new version of PSP. This year that isn’t quite in the cards, though. I say “not quite” because Corel has just announced the release of Paint Shop Pro Photo X2 Ultimate. This package includes a somewhat enhanced version of PSPPX2, with some bug fixes, added Vista compatibility, and some additional Picture Frames and Picture Tubes. There are also a few things bundled in: a 2GB flash drive, file recovery software, Corel Painter Essentials 4, and the Background Remover plugin from ImageSkill. I’m particularly interested in the inclusion of Background Remover, a nifty plugin selling for $49 on its own – which is just $11 less than the PSPPX2 Ultimate upgrade price.

I just ordered my copy of PSPPX2 Ultimate a couple days ago. When it comes in, I’ll let you know what I think. In the meantime, if you’re interested in checking out the enhancements in this not-quite-a-new-release, download the trial version and give it a spin.
