Corel Photo-Paint 9 for Linux
grab a lot of memory. You can limit this behavior in the options though.
A faster processor probably wouldn't help much. I tried out various
filters and various combinations of filter and they seemed to be applied
as fast if not faster than the Windows versions.
How does Photo-Paint compare to GIMP. Well GIMP is a lot lighter and
faster and can do just about everything that Photo-Paint does.
Photo-Paint is a very impressive application and it's very feature rich
but they really should have gone beyond the Wine route. I would really
have liked to give Corel a much higher score here but the user interface
issues really need to be fixed. I give it a rating of 6 out of 10.
