Corel has released the highly anticipated Paint Shop Photo Pro X3 today along with Corel VideoStudio Pro X3. If you want to try PSP X3 out you can click here to download a fully functional 30 day trial of PaintShopPro X3 directly from Corel.

My new copy of PSP X3 is on its way and I am excited about creating and sharing new Paint Shop Pro X3 tutorials. Once I receive my copy in the mail this week I will post a review and some youtube videos of the new features. Speaking of new features, Corel Paint Shop X3 includes improved digital workflow, new advanced photo-editing tools, and built-in photo projects and sharing capabilities.

UPDATE: My in-depth review of Paint Shop Pro X3.

The price of the full version cost only $99.99, and if upgrading from PSP 10, X1, or X2 it will only cost you $59.99 to upgrade. Also customers that own Corel Paintshop Photo Express 2010 and Corel Digital Studio 2010 are eligible for the upgrade.

New! Vibrancy

Boost color in the least saturated areas of a photo without affecting the

New! Object Extractor

The integrated Object Extractor isolates an object—even challenging cases
such as flyaway hair and fuzzy pet fur—so it can be copied to a new background
or a new background can be pasted behind it.

New! On-Image Text Editing

With the updated text engine, it’s easier, faster and more natural to apply
text to an image. Adjust font, color, placement, position, size and wrapping of
the text in context of the image. Reselect the text on the image and continue
typing, or apply text on a path.

now offers tools that let you combine photo and video projects. Create HD
slideshows and movies of your photos and videos, all with the same tool.
