    Paint Shop Pro X ?

    In <!post=this recent thread,508,380>this recent thread<!/post> we talked about Corel's (JASC?) intention to release this new version "soon." In spite of the fact that the two links in that thread no longer point to the pre-release (pre-order) page, and I cannot find any mention of Version X (10?) on their web pages, they must still be planning on the release. One of the elements of the early email to pre-order was a free camera strap, with an "alleged" value of $15 and mine came by DHL courier yesterday afternoon. <img src=/S/anigrin.gif border=0 alt=anigrin width=19 height=19>

    For those of you interested, we'll just have to keep our eyes on their web pages to see when they make the big announcement and see if the $59 price that the email quoted is still present!

    Edited, much later: I'm in a good humor and smart-aleck as well, so here's a shot of the alleged $15 camera strap, WITH the Paint Shop Pro X advertising all over it. I guess I'll use it since it was free and I don't have one, but I sure wouldn't PAY for something like this... <img src=/S/grin.gif border=0 alt=grin width=15 height=15>

    Re: Paint Shop Pro X ?

    Al,

    My local Target has version 9 clearanced for $40, so I'm sure X is still on its way!

    If you Google Paint Shop Pro X, the first hit I had was to the Corel page. Clicking on that takes me to a different page than what I would have expected from the search description, but if you view the cached page, it's from Aug 22 and is the page that showed the special offer and talked about the amazing camera strap <img src=/S/evilgrin.gif border=0 alt=evilgrin width=15 height=15>.

    It says there that the offer was only good until August 31, and that the product will ship in early September, so you'll probably have your PSPX in a couple of weeks. You should know when it ships because that's when they said they'd charge your credit card.

    As for the camera strap...it looks like it's black on the back side. Any way you could take it apart and turn the strap around so the black side shows?

    "product will ship in early September"

    Maybe around the 6th of September or maybe earlier or later?

    Al

    Surely the cost of the courier was at least $15?!

    Re: Paint Shop Pro X ?

    Al,

    I received my copy of Paint Shop Pro X yesterday. I haven't had a chance to use it but I did load it. I'll report back after I get a chance to use it.
    It must be a lot easier to use for the User Guide is only 106 pages long including index where as the PSP 9 User Guide is 585 pages including index.
    The $1 neck strap seems to be strong but I wouldn't use it on my Canon 20d.

    It does come with Album 6 and free tube downloads. However the install couldn't find my cable connection to download the freebees but it could find it for registration.

    The software also looked for an installed version of PSP.

    Will return with further updates as I use it.

    Re: Paint Shop Pro X ?

    Thanks for the news, Don. I hadn't heard anything as of yesterday, but prompted by your post, I just checked the web site and they NOW mention PSP X, so I guess he's shipping alright. To be perfectly honest, I thought that I had ordered the download version until I got that camera strap the other day. Now that I check my pre-order confirming email, it does mention DHL shipping, so I don't know where I stand. Maybe I'll find out today. Good luck with it...

    Wow, you have your copy already!! <img src=/S/thumbup.gif border=0 alt=thumbup width=15 height=15> I like the idea of an upgraded Photo Album 6 but did it also include Animation Shop? <img src=/S/smile.gif border=0 alt=smile width=15 height=15> I figure when I see my charge card get hit for the cost of the software, I can start looking for PSP X to be delivered!! <img src=/S/laugh.gif border=0 alt=laugh width=15 height=15>

    Hi Skitterbug

    I will be checking out the other items on the disk this evening if my better half doesn't have plans for going out to dinner again.
    <img src=/S/whisper.gif border=0 alt=whisper width=29 height=17> We are in the middle of having our kitchen redone and haven't had the use of it for three weeks now.
    Will report what else the disk contains.

    Re: Paint Shop Pro X ?

    This news is very sad! I like Animation Shop and I was hoping they would update it!. <img src=/S/yep.gif border=0 alt=yep width=15 height=15> Thanks for posting back. I haven't seen my copy yet but I was one of the last ones to get my foot into the door for the update so they will probably have me at the end of the shipping list too! <img src=/S/laugh.gif border=0 alt=laugh width=15 height=15>

    Re: Paint Shop Pro X ?

    Yeah, I guess they have "unbundled" Animation Shop, at least that's the way it looks on the web site. I don't know about you, but I currently have version 3.11 installed from either PSP version 8 or 9 (don't remember which) and the web site, if you click to download the trial of Animation Shop says it's version 3 but doesn't say which decimal.

    By the way, I guess I did remember correctly. This afternoon when I returned home I found the download email from Corel for my copy of PSP X. If yours is also a download rather than a boxed version, you'll be forever on dialup. The download file is 109,710,320 bytes - a BIG sucker! Their download web site wanted to install a download manager, but I declined since I have a good, fast cable connection and it only took 4 minutes 15 seconds to download.

    Now, on to the installation (and the instructions DO say you HAVE to have your previous version installed).

    Re: Paint Shop Pro X ?

    According to my info ( DHL Ground $7.00 USD - with the shipping fees waved of course!) I believe that will be a delivery by <img src=/S/snail.gif border=0 alt=snail width=21 height=17> mail! I would not want to have to download that size of a file! I would be in deep trouble on dial-up!! I don't have a confirmation of the exact date to expect delivery yet so I guess I will just sit here and try and be patient!! Very hard....very hard......but I am trying!! Thanks for the information!! <img src=/S/grin.gif border=0 alt=grin width=15 height=15>

    Hi Al,

    Sorry I've been away for a few days.
    [whispre] Visiting my granddaughter who just turned two.
    Yes, when I installed it went looking for an installed version.
    I had mine installed so I don't know what would happen if you don't have one.

    Re: Paint Shop Pro X ?

    Somewhere on their instructions I saw the note that if you start the PSP X install and do not have your previous installation still on-board, you should abort the PSP X install and go ahead and re-install your previous copy. So, one would presume from that a failure if you don't do it. I must (embarrassed) admit to procrastination for the past few days as I've not yet installed version X. I'm in the middle of scanning 35mm slides and had gotten to some good oldies to show our son, so I didn't want to stop that project. I think I will take the plunge when I get back home this afternoon.
