photoshop and photimpact cannot really be compared - they both offer similar options - working in layers etc - but photoshop is ultimetly the best on the market. I find though some things a lot easier to do in PI8

Well, second only to Corel PhotoPaint. :)

Does anyone know if PhotoImpact XL is an upgrade to v8 ? Ulead's web sites are not very helpful.

I'm trying to use v8's web authoring features but get an error whenever I try to add HTML text object. (failed to create dynamic HTML component etc)

Wondering whether it's worth looking at XL

oh i dont know i havent had much experience with that .... for overall use though you cant beat Photoshop really...

Not sure about the upgrades... most other years its been easily upgradeable but I havent gotten round to doing it yet so I cant tell you for sure. Have you tried emailing or calling them?

I have been using PhotoImpact programs for a few years now to play and I have to say that XL is great ! I am looking forward to seeing what impact 10 can bring to the table now too.

Did you put the plugin dll in in your impact and that other dll in windows? I stuck the 2 dll's in but have yet to try anything.

I prefer Photoshop, but I have been using it since v2.5 and upgrading it since 3.5, when my employer went under and I had to buy my own copy, lol.

PhotoImpact is great been using it for quite awhile now. I just downloaded the trial of 10 and see that the UI is little different now. Best program on the market for the money bar none. Beats the heck out of Photoshop when u consider what Adobe wants for their program.

Actually the dll placement is so that the program can use the other companies material is all :lol: and I got the suggestion from this site right here.
