There is a big problem with Corel Photopaint as far as the pro market is
concerned, in that it does not, at least up to version 8 which is the most
recent that I have seen, allow the user to add the international standard
information text file (<file<file info in Photoshop). This feature allows
captions to pop up in browsers, can be used to add copyright details, and
interfaces with a range of database search programs, which makes file
management a breeze. Many magazines and newspapers simply will not take
images which do not have this file completed to their specs these days.
Details like that have kept Photoshop ahead, though I agree that the Corel
program is very good indeed.
The best low-cost image manager program is still, IMHO, PaintShop Pro from
Jasc Software. It is cheap, powerful, and well featured. It does not do
things quite as PhotoShop does, but in some ways it's even easier- for
instance the "Gamma Correction" function will allow very precise contrast
control on one button, with a preview pane. It also comes complete with a
thumbnail generator which allows for easy browsing, an advantage if you have
a library of many thousand images. I have been using it alongside PhotoShop
since 1995, and I find the two to be a pretty useful combination.
