Retouch photos quickly with adjustment tools and filter effects that let you extract unwanted objects, blend colors and apply professional lighting effects.
Take advantage of over 50 adjustment filters and 112 special effects to fine- tune your work. Merge photos taken with different exposures to create a stunning, perfectly exposed image with the new HDR module. Or experiment with the tonal range to get an intriguing, surrealistic look. The HDR tools in PaintShop Pro X4 are ideal for revealing hidden details in backlit scenes like sunsets. Try it with a series of photos taken using the auto-bracket feature on your DSLR.
Get the look of tilt-shift photography without expensive lenses using the new Selective Focus feature. Turn a scene into a miniature world or use it to add depth of field.
Combine photos easily
The new Photo Blend tool lets you combine the best elements from similar shots to create your ideal photo. For example, remove unwanted cars or people from a street scene, or take the best smiles from a series of group shots.
With new performance updates, including GPU optimizations, PaintShop Pro X4 is the fastest version yet. More real-time effects—including Noise Reduction, Vibrancy, Tone Mapping and others—let you see the results as you work. Start up time is drastically reduced, plus the interface is faster and more responsive.
Enjoy an easy and intuitive editing experience with tabbed workspaces that mirror your natural workflow. Move freely between three modes:
- Manage – quickly browse, tag and organize your photo collections
- Adjust – easily make powerful adjustments and quick fixes
- Edit – take advantage of professional tools for photo editing, image composition and graphic design
You can also access the Organizer directly from any workspace, making it easy to review and rate your photos. Use trays to gather and access images from several folders and refer to the new Shot Info panel to instantly see details about the camera and image. New dual monitor support lets you manage your photos on one screen while editing on the other. Plus, try new Adjustment Layers to experiment without changing your source image.
More detailed photos
Brighten shadowy areas of your photo without changing the rest of the image with Fill Light. Try the Clarity filter to draw attention to subtle details, dramatically increasing the texture and depth of your photos.
Apply a custom fade to the outer edge of a photo to emphasize the focal point of your image. With the new Vignette effect, you can use intuitive sliders to control the appearance of the edges by choosing the shape, color and tone, and adjusting the amount of blur, glow and feathering.
