Ottawa, Canada—Corel introduced Corel PaintShop Pro 2021 and PaintShop Pro 2021 Ultimate all-in-one photo–editing and graphic design suites. Moreover, the most technologically advanced versions of the software enable users to achieve results never before possible in PaintShop Pro. That’s due to new AI-powered features; they include upsampling; artifact removal; denoise; as well as redesigned style transfer.
Photographers, photo artists and content creators will also benefit from the power of machine learning integrated into the programs.
“PaintShop Pro 2021 makes it easy for our users to create images that were virtually impossible to achieve in their favorite photo editor before. Whether you’re eliminating noise and artifacts, upsampling or exploring incredible art styles, these new AI tools not only give you exciting creative options but also dramatically speed up the editing process,” said Chris Pierce, Senior Product Manager, Corel Photo.
“Every photographer knows the frustration of coming back from an amazing shoot and discovering you have hours of seemingly uninspired corrections to make before you can start your creative editing. This latest version introduces new possibilities so you can focus on the expressive elements of photography that you love.”

PaintShop Pro 2021 offers comprehensive photo editing and graphic design tools. For instance, AI upsampling enables users to enlarge or zoom in on any photo without compromising resolution or visual quality. Users can take advantage of this technology to magnify even the finest details to create the perfect composition.
