You might notice that I use the old Paint Shop Pro 8 software. It is intuitive for me, but NOT perfect. It is an old 32-bit program and won't use all of the RAM on my computer. So I also use PSP 14 which uses the RAM but makes me pull my hair out. Her menus are whacked and we just don't get along. It's not like PSP8 that had simple menus and was down-to-Earth. Software is funky that way. You might end up using more than one software package to get the job done. Find what works for YOU. You can pay a lot or a little, or even free software.
