Customer Reviews

for beginners, but even then...

I got tricked at buying this. The description is misleading! There are no pressure sensitive control on the tools with the wacom tablette. 50$ is not expensive, but it’s more than what you get with this version. Either buy the « pro » one, or go with another type of software.

Beginner Artist

Thought I’d try this program, because Paint Shop Pro is not available in the App Store
Have become Very disappointed with Corel. $70 and No Fonts?????
In my oppinion,,, A WASTE OF MONEY
Also, NOT listed, is the fact this program is for Windows,,,
