Paint Shop Pro’s Latest

After private beta testing for its next version, Jasc has released a Paint Shop Pro 8 Public Beta. The public is invited to download the free beta version, give it a test run, and send them your feedback via their Newsgroup/discussion forum.

Jasc’s Paint Shop Pro photo and graphics editor has been a longtime popular tool used by countless loyal users. It’s far from being just a lower-cost alternative to Adobe Photoshop, the industry standard. Version 8 also has a new interface and many new features. The public beta is a perfect opportunity to give it a test whirl.
