    Great Reference

    This is certainly a great book to familiarize yourself with Paint Shop Pro Photo X2. It covers all the basics, the tools and even clues you in on the shortcut keys for many functions. I have not completed all 400 or so pages, but I have used it to answer each question I have come up with when I got stuck trying out tools I had never used. I would definitely recommend this book to anyone who is buying Paint Shop Pro Photo X2 and wants to learn how to use all the functions.

    Great Resource for those who use Corel paint Shop Pro Photo X2

    I am using this book as a reference book. I use Corel Paint Shop Pro Photo X2. I find the book very helpful. The software program is wonderful, but at times it can be confusing. This book is very easy to understand and follow. When I need help, I take out this book and look up what I need to know. It has great illustrations.

    A truly outstanding manual for Paint Shop Pro X2

    Ms Koers has written a truly outstanding manual for users of Corel's Paint Shop Pro X2. She literally takes the user by the hand in using PSP X2. Her instructions are clear and concise and the illustrations are really outstanding for a book of this kind. The book is written so that the user may read it as a text and more especially as a reference when using the program. This is truly one of the best.
