The latest versions feature a new ‘touch-ready’,  highly simplified workspace, providing faster access to essential editing and design tools, along with a more streamlined workflow. A new Smart Clone content-aware function enables users to easily merge elements from multiple images and seamlessly integrate them into one. Also new is the Refine Brush, which lets users select an object with extreme precision and accuracy, down to a single strand of hair. Existing tools like Pic-to-Painting and text rendering  have been improved and are now faster and easier to use. Improvements have also been made to the Ultimate version’s creative effects, photo animation, photo-painting, RAW photo editing and the utilities toolbox.  Corel has also expanded support for the newest graphics tablets, styluses and camera raw file formats.

PaintShop Pro 2020 on its own is available from Corel for AU$119.00. The Ultimate version bundles PaintShop Pro 2020 with Corel’s Painter Essentials, Parallels Toolbox and a collection of backgrounds, brushes and textures for AU$149.00. Corel Paintshop Pro is designed for Windows only.
