The Express Lab gives photo enthusiasts instant access to the most frequently used tools and quick fixes for the most common problems, including:
New! Camera RAW Lab: PaintShop Photo Pro X3 simplifies the digital photography workflow for those who shoot in RAW mode. The Camera RAW Lab launches whenever a RAW image is opened in the Full Editor, allowing photo enthusiasts to adjust a variety of settings, such as white balance, exposure, brightness, and saturation before processing. Then, the processed image can be opened in the Full Editor directly from the Camera RAW Lab or the changes can be simply applied to the image for processing later. Adjustments made to a RAW image can be copied and applied to other files in the Organizer. In addition, the Camera RAW Lab is constantly being updated to support more RAW image formats as new cameras are released, minimizing compatibility headaches.
The Camera RAW Lab is the perfect digital darkroom for working with RAW files.
New! Smart Carver: Using the Smart Carver, photo enthusiasts can seamlessly and realistically remove photo objects and alter the aspect ra without distorting the rest of the image.
Smart Carver lets you remove objects and change the aspect ratio.
Improved performance: In recent years, the size of images being created by digital cameras has grown significantly, making it critical for photo-editing software performance to increase, too. PaintShop Photo Pro X3 has been optimized for increased performance on PCs with multi-core processing, ensuring a fast, efficient working environment. Two-pass processing provides a faster preview of image adjustments, speeding up photo-editing. Many legacy features have also been refined to offer enhanced speed and performance.
Support for more RAW formats: With improved camera RAW support, users who shoot in RAW formats can choose from an expanded list of over 350 supported cameras. The list of supported formats is reviewed and updated regularly as new cameras are released.
16-bit support: Digital photography enthusiasts who shoot in a RAW format can open their photos at 16-bits per channel, so they can edit their photos with the full range of tonal detail in their pictures.
New! Object Extractor: This new tool makes it faster to precisely mask fine image details that are otherwise difficult to preserve. The Object Extractor is ideal for copying elements in one photo to another background – even challenging cases such as fly-away hair, wisps of smoke, tree branches.
The Object Extractor is the ideal tool for removing part of an image and adding it to another.
New! On-image text editing: The PaintShop Photo Pro text engine has been updated, making it easier, faster, and more natural to apply text to an image. Text attributes, such as font, color, placement, position, size and more, can be easily tweaked. Existing text can be reselected, so users can edit it or continue typing. In addition, text can be applied to a path.
New! Color vibrancy: The Vibrancy control lets photo enthusiasts boost saturation in poorly saturated parts of an image, while well-saturated pixels are adjusted less, so no colors become unrealistically bright.
You can improve under-saturated areas without affecting other parts of the image.
New! HD video: HD video has come to DSLRs and high-end point-and-shoot cameras – and now PaintShop Photo Pro X3 lets enthusiasts use that video in slide shows along with photos.
Enhanced! Depth of Field effect: The Depth of Field effect draws attention to specific image areas by subtly blurring the rest of the photo. This replicates the look of limited depth of field, an effect that usually requires precise manual lens aperture adjustments. Photo enthusiasts can also draw attention to several areas of an image in ways that aren't possible in conventional photography. For example, users can keep objects in both the foreground and background in focus, while blurring the rest of the image. Now users can simply select the image areas to keep in focus directly on the photo and easily fine-tune settings to get just the right effect.
The Depth of Field effect focuses attention on a specific image area.
