New! Remove objects seamlessly

New Magic Fill provides powerful content‑aware editing that works with your favorite selection tools. It lets you erase an unwanted element in your photo and seamlessly replace it with content that matches the background area—even if it is textured and varied.

Enhanced! Get the perfect photo—fast

Enhance photos quickly with more responsive brushes, including the Paint Brush, Airbrush and photo retouching brushes that are 30% faster. Plus, moving between the Manage, Adjust and Edit workspaces is faster and a new quick preview window helps you see the results of instant effects before you apply them.

New! Add unique creative effects

Instantly create a unique photo object by using a text or shape to clip underlying photos or imagery with new Text and Shape Cutter tools. The resulting photo object is a new file with a transparent background that you can paste or drag to any image to build a collage (it will appear as a layer).

New! Easier color selection

Find the color, texture or pattern you want fast with the redesigned Color Materials palette. Plus, create your own custom palettes to save your color selections for future projects.

Versatile creative tools

PaintShop Pro X7 offers more than just photo editing, it's also a powerful design program that's perfect for any visual project. Whether you're developing images for the web, creating striking graphic designs or adding creative touches to your scrapbook pages, you'll enjoy a variety of creative brushes, textures, lettering, vector tools and more.

Enhanced! Streamlined Layer workflow – Using layers is easier than ever. Now you can drag a layer from one image to another and drop it into the Layers palette anywhere you want in that stacking order
