This alone makes Paint Shop Pro Photo XI stand apart from the crowd, and when you combine that with one-of-kind photo tools it's easy to see why Paint Shop Pro is such great value-for-money.

Advanced, manual correction tools OR automatic one-step fixes (Smart Photo Fix even combines these 2 methods of photo fixing for maximum efficiency), Paint Shop Pro XI has them. Tools include Background Eraser, Colour Changer, Noise Removal Filter, Perspective Correction Tool, Makeover Tools, Purple Fringe Remover, and Straighten.
In the advanced editing category, Paint Shop Pro XI has excellent Learning Tools.
