    Love it and had no trouble with download

    I have been using Corel PaintShop Photo Pro since it was version 9. I have upgraded several times and always learned by trial and error. This time (when I upgraded to x3), I wanted to have some help with the learning curve. This book fits that bill nicely. It is easy to understand and explains the upgrades well. If you have never used PaintShop Photo Pro, you can learn it from this book as well. In plain English it takes you from the basics to the more complicated functions. I had no problem with the down load. Because the book is so large with so many photos, you need to download it first to your computer and then place it in your document folder in the B&N reader. You could also download it via wifi at the store. You just cannot download it over the 3 G network. But it is well worth this extra three minute step of downloading and placing in documents. Having it on my computer as well as on my Nook lets me flip back and forth from the book to the program while I read and learned. I love it
