Paintshopblog is now known as TorQQue’s Tutorials here at torqque.com. I spent countless hours creating Corel Paint Shop Pro tutorials that I felt were very helpful and easy to follow for readers and fans of the program. The site had been online for 5 or 6 years and it always got decent rankings in the search engines up until 2012.
I have created several (around 40) Youtube video tutorials for Corel Paintshop Pro over the years. Most were created from 2006-2008 and had very poor video quality that made them more difficult to follow along.
Recently, I was researching new features and release dates for Corel Paintshop Pro X5 when I stumbled on a preorder listing at nuLime.com. According to their website it is estimated that X5 will be available for shipping on September 6, 2012. BTW, the X5 boxart is obviously not official. It was something that I created specifically for this post. I like it though because it features my beautiful wife 🙂
This is not necessarily a Paint Shop Pro X3 review, but more of a plea to Corel to restructure the direction they are trying to take with Paint Shop Pro.
I realize that many Paint Shop X3 users may actually prefer the new “on image” text editing features. Honestly, I would prefer the “on image” text editing too, if it worked correctly. The current state of the X3 text tool severely limits my productivity, and appears very buggy.
In the tutorial you will learn how to create specular highlights and increase the brightness of your photos. Btw, specular highlights is a fancy name for light reflections.
