Ah, my A700, loved that camera, now sold :(
Just have to keep on playing with the A77 :)
magneto shot: +1 for alternative to adobe. Corel have been around as long as i remember, i hope folks will give them a chance...
As a happy amateur I've been using PaintShopPro since it ran under DOS and GEM! Version X4 was at least up untill the last service pack a complete disaster. It wouldn't properly recognise the correct color space from my Sony A77 and couldnet even be relied on to rotate images correctly. So for me X5 was Corels last chance, so far I've found no issues, and it is substantially faster (about 300%!).
