Software Review: Paint Shop Pro 8.1|

As we worked with Paint Shop Pro, we couldn't help but recall Space Cowboys, the 2000 film whose tagline was "Boys will be boys." A bunch of old test pilots who never got to be astronauts finally get to fly into space led by Clint Eastwood, who is on a mission to save the world. PSP strikes us as the Clint Eastwood of image editors. It got the job done in 1991 and it does now. Of course, PSP is no Tom Cruise (or Leonardo di Caprio, for that matter). And, yes, there's at least one fatal diagnosis. Still, you want to root for the old bugger and if you don't shed a tear by the end of our review, why, you just ain't paying attention, pardner.
