See results fast

Enhanced! Speed and performance

With performance updates that include GPU optimisations, the PaintShop Pro X4 interface is fast and responsive for a more enjoyable photo-editing experience.

Enhanced! Real-time results

Noise Reduction, Vibrancy, Tone Mapping and many other real-time effects let you see results as you work.

Create studio-quality images with professional tools

New! High Dynamic Range (HDR) module

Create perfectly exposed photos or stunning surrealistic images with the new HDR module. The module lets you merge photos taken at different exposures or experiment with the tonal range of your images. Try it with images taken using the auto-bracketing feature on your DSLR.

New! Photo Blend

Now you can combine elements from several shots of the same scene to create the perfect photo. Remove unwanted cars or people from a street scene. Or improve a group photo by taking the best smiles from a series of shots.

New! Fill Light and Clarity

Brighten shadows without changing the rest of your image with the Fill Light and Clarity filter. It’s an easy way to draw attention to subtle details and increase the texture and depth of your photos.

New! Selective Focus

Get the effect of expensive tilt-shift lenses without the cost! Selective Focus lets you turn a scene into a miniature world. You can also use it to add depth of field and blur out distracting details.

New! Vignette effect

Draw attention to the focal point of your photo by applying a classic faded border around the edges. Use intuitive sliders to control the appearance of the edges by choosing the shape, colour and tone, and adjusting the amount of blur, glow, and feathering.

Enhanced! RAW Lab

Get a better look at your images with a larger preview area in the RAW Lab. The improved histogram lets you fine-tune images quickly and the new highlight recovery feature helps you restore detail in overexposed areas.

New! Adjustment Layers

Use layers to protect your original image, especially with complex editing such as adding elements, creating image compositions, or applying artistic enhancements or text.

Smart Carver™

Seamlessly remove objects from an image with professional quality. Smart Carver also lets you expand or contract objects without distortion.

Object Extractor

The integrated Object Extractor isolates an object – even challenging cases such as flyaway hair and fuzzy pet fur – so it can be copied to a new background or a new background can be pasted behind it.

Makeover tools

Make sure the people in your photos look their best with tools that are fun and easy to use. Help your subjects look thinner in seconds, whiten bloodshot eyes, smooth wrinkles, paint on a tan and remove blemishes.

More editing power

Sophisticated cloning tools

Easily remove flaws and objects from your photos and fill in the space with content from another area of your image.

Scratch Remover tool

Repair scratches and cracks on your photos by filling them in with matching content from the surrounding area.


Save time by creating scripts to automate common photo-editing actions.

Custom Screen Capture

Easily capture images directly from your screen for use in presentations, training guides and other material.

Advanced Warp tools

Twirl, expand or contract areas of an image to create interesting effects or extreme model makeovers.

Vector Editing tools

Draw and edit vector objects, and combine artistic elements with your photos to create unique designs.

Art Media brushes

Enjoy endless creative possibilities with the extensive brush options in PaintShop Pro X4.
