Paint Shop Pro Photo XI from Corel
The new Photo Organizer is the newest generation of the old browser. As in previous versions, you can use the new Photo Organizer to view thumbnails of your stored images and video clips or search based on filename, date, file type and size, folder location, tags and ratings. Another new feature is the Quick Review slide-show that lets you view images or video clips in full screen mode, make basic adjustments or add text.
Once you get organized, it’s time to play with some of the other new features. The one I enjoyed the most is the Time Machine which you will find under the Effects menu. This new feature quickly converts your photos into representations of what that photo would look like if it was taken with the photographic equipment available in the past. The Time Machine spans several decades starting with the Daguerreotype used from 1839 – 1855, moving along the timeline to Albumen (1855 – 1890), Cyanotype, Platinum (1873 – 1920), Early Color, Box Cameras and finally Cross Process (1960+).
Also new is the Depth of Field photo effect found in the Adjust menu. This effect simulates the Depth of Field created with expensive camera filters. After you select the area of the photo that you wish to be your point of interest, the program blurs the areas surrounding the selected area.
