Paint Shop Pro X3 and Raw
Aug 29, 2010
I just purchased PSP Photo X3 and am working on some RAW files. PSP has a Raw editor but when I double click on an image it comes up very small in the window with the raw controls. In the 'getting started guide' it shows the picture you are working on as being much bigger though still fairly small.
I have not worked with Raw files for a while so I am wondering, can I download Adobe Camera Raw 6.1 and use it as a plug in in PSP or only in Photoshop or Elements? Will ACR run as a stand alone program without it being invoked as a plug in? My latest version of Photoshop elements is only 5.0 and I have read bad things about V8 so I have not gotten it. I don't believe I can use ACR 6.1 with an older version of Elements.
Does anyone have any suggestions of how I can use ACR or any other Raw editor? I have Picasa but my photos don't seem to come up looking like they should.
Should I just quit fooling around and buy Lightroom? TIA!
