Paint Shop Pro :: Long Time To Save?

Aug 6, 2011

PSP taking eons to save a file. It goes into (Not Responding) mode. It is using about 10 to 15% CPU for a good 4 to 6 minutes before it all comes alive again likje nothing happened. THis is with small 50K pics and larger 600dpi images. All held locally. No disk whirring so it all seems to be a memory thing ! Vista Ultimate. Old machine but PSP has been running fine on this box for a while now (aside from startup times being slow). I've been editing larger files regularly with no issues before.

Paint Shop Pro :: X5 Long Boot Time?

Sep 17, 2013

I purchased X5 Ultimate last spring and have been happy with the results. My only complaint is the extraordinarily long start up time. From clicking the icon to being able to use it takes about 2 minutes. The X5 outline or shell appears within 15-20 seconds and then there is a round blue circle spinning in the center of the work area for the remainder of the 2 minutes. Once initialization has completed X5 works very well for me.

I upgraded to X6 Ultimate and found it to be amazingly faster, which was my hope. 15-20 seconds and it is ready to use. This holds true for the 32 & 64 bit programs.

I would like to use X5 for the existing plugins that shipped with it. It is up to date with SP3.

Win 8 Pro 64 bit up to date.
16 GB ram

Paint Shop Pro :: X4 - Takes Long Time To Open?

Mar 4, 2012

I recently installed Corel paintshop pro x4 in my computer and when I go to open it, it takes a long time for it to open. My mouse keeps spinning. When I first installed it, everything worked fine. I added a couple of plug ins. Should I uninstall paintshop and re-install? If so, would I lose the plug-ins?

Paint Shop Pro :: X5 SP2 Corrupts Big TIFF Files At Save Time

Jul 18, 2013

I wanted to upgrade from paintshop pro x2 to x5 (want to go to 64 bit)but I have a severe problem. Here the steps to reproduce it:

1. open only one big tif file at a time (edit window) (from canon scanner 600 dpi A4 scan around 100 mb per file i think around 5500 to 3200 pixels)

2. sometimes i turn/rotate the picture first with the rotate tool (0 to 0,2 degrees)

3. use the crop/trim function to cut a small part of the edge

4. save the image and close it ( there is never more than one file opened in psp) its now around 80 mb in size dont close psp x5 and repeat steps 1 to 4 with other images. (with smaller 30mb images it did not happen and if I close x5 and reopen it after every 5th tif-image it does not happen too, so somewhere memory is not given free) When doing this when saving somewhere at the 7th - latest at the 10th image that image is saved corrupted.(it shows in the lower half vertical grey lines)

The big problem is: there is no error message and you only see that the image is corrupted when you view it again or if you see it in the thumbnail view of windows explorer.

second problem is that after doing an undo after a crop/trim step (3.) the picture is gone and the area is white.(dont save now!!)

x5 version is the current trial version (15.2 something - when i try to install sp2 it says its not necessary)

this happens on 2 different machines

mach 1: intel nuc i3217u 8GB ram, c drive 128 gb ssd, pic-drive: usb hd with 500 GB

mach 2: i7 2600k, 16 gb ram, cdrive 128 gb ssd, pic drivé: internal 2tb hd or internal ssd 256 gb (makes no difference)on both machines psp x5 system info only shows 4GB ram free so it seems its not really 64 bit programm.

VideoStudio :: X4 Takes Long Time To Save?

Mar 14, 2011

Is it normal for VSX4 to take a long time to save a project? I am finding that it is taking about 20 minutes for X4 to save my project each time, which has a running time of about 45 minutes. This is an excessive amount of time wasted in waiting for it to do its thing, as I can't proceed with anything else while it is saving.

InDesign :: Save To Network Location Takes A Long Time?

Mar 17, 2014

Saving InDesign files to a network location seems to take an extremely long time during which I am unable to do anything else inside InDesign.I know that this has been an issue for me for at least 2 weeks (since March 3, 2014, possibly earlier). I am not certain whether I have updated InDesign since then, but have consistently been experiencing this same problem.
Today I ran some tests (all using the same ~20MB file).

Save from InDesign to network location: 12 seconds

Save from InDesign to desktop: <2 seconds

Copy file (in Windows Explorer) from desktop to network: <2 seconds

Copy file from network to desktop: <2 seconds
I know I can work on the file locally and copy my saved versions out at the end of the day, but this was not necessary before, and I don't know what changed to make this take so much longer than it used to.
Current system configuration: InDesign 9.2 x64 running on a Win 7 Pro 64-bit with 16GB RAM and a Xeon 3.6GHz processor.

Paint Shop Pro :: X5 Crash Every Time When Merge Layers

Nov 2, 2012

Let me give you the details, as they are fairly specific to this issue -

First, here's my puter info: Lenovo ThinkPad Edge E520, Intel i5-2410M Core proc @2.3Ghz, 4Gig RAM, Win 7 pro 64 bit.
PSP X5 - version

Here's da scoop:

Open X5
Open jpg file (have tried various sizes, both physical and pixel, and makes no difference)
Add Raster layer
Create tiny color dot on new layer
Merge layers
Dies, freezes up, have to shut it down and lose what I just modified.

Now, mind you, I've been using PSP since way back in the Jasc days. For years I was one of their beta testers, because I USE THIS EVERY SINGLE DAY! Literally, I'm in it every day. I love X4, still trying to get into X5, but similar to when X4 came out, X5 is slowly PMO'ing me! I create hundreds of scripts, and lots dozens of plug-ins, and so far the majority seem to work fine in X5, however this whole issue of it crashing and freezing up my puter is really getting on my nerves.

After the crash, I can re-open X5 and it'll work fine on the first image. Then next image, SSSD!

Really is getting aggravating this constant crashing. Starting to think that Corel isn't creating this software but Microsoft is

Paint Shop Pro :: Error / Reference To Date / Time Being Incorrect

Aug 31, 2011

I am creating photo scenery for Flight Simulator X - my source files are large bmp's. From each of these I create a greyscale file which I Save As a tif file. However, when I recompile the bmp and tif together, I get error messages. Most common is a reference to Date/Time being incorrect.

If I load the tif file in GIMP, it reports "Incorrect Count for field DateTime (21, expecting 20); tag trimmed" - If I then save the tif in Gimp, it recompiles without errors.

Paint Shop Pro :: Temp Directory Not Defined When Running X4 For 1st Time

Jan 6, 2013

I am running Win 7 64bit Pro with several users defined on a PC. PSP X4 runs OK for my user, but all other users cannot start PSP X4 they get a message Temp Directory not defined. The Temp Directory is defined and valid with write permissions.

Windows is installed on C: drive, but User directories are on E: Drive

PSP X4 version

I have reviewed a post for a similar issue, but this does not apply for my issue viewtopic.php?f=56&t=39832&p=208741&hilit=temp+directory+not+defined

I have even tried copying the corel hive of HKCUSoftwareCorel from my user and "DocumentsCorel Paintshop Pro" directory to the other user, but still get the temp directory is not defined message

So basically although PSP X4 is running for one user on the PC, none of the other users can start it to run for the first time

Paint Shop Pro :: Recent Files List Empty Every Time On X5 Launch

Mar 7, 2013

Every time I launch Paint Shop Pro X5 my recent file list is empty. I thought the program was supposed to remember the last four images that were opened. I then have to select File > Open but now the program defaults to a folder called My Pictures. I store my images in my own folder elsewhere. I would like to set my folder to be the default folder. I have to navigate to my folder ever time I launch the tool. If I go to File > Preferences, I do not see a place where I can change the setting.

Paint Shop Pro :: Night Time Photography - Color Correcting Streetlights

Dec 22, 2013

New to PSP and I took some night time photos of a car using long exposure, the pictures are clear and focused but they have that yellow-orange street light tint to them. Is there an easy way in PSP X6 to get rid of that color cast?

I'm shooting in RAW in Large with a Nikon D5100 if that matters for this. I'm not bothered how I output it as up to now I've just experimented on screen. No error codes yet!

Paint Shop Pro :: How To Save RAW (CR2) Image

Aug 25, 2012

A client sent me four images taken with his Canon camera - they are in Canon Raw (.CR2) file format. I can't get them to open and then save them as a .jpg or a .pspimage format in either PSP9 or in X3. In X3, when I click on the pic, it brings up the "Canon RAW Lab" dialogue box, showing a black and white image but with a deep pinkish cast to it. And there is no options to save it. What do I do from here?

Paint Shop Pro :: How To Save PSD Or EPS With Layers

Apr 22, 2013

I haven't really used PSP for doing custom graphics, mostly for working on photos; but before that I was using Adobe Photoshop and I liked (and still do) how it made saving easier than PSP does. Unfortunately Photoshop is horribly expensive so this is a better option.

I can't figure out for the life of me how to save .psd or .eps with the layers? It keeps telling me that due to how I am saving or the file format the alpha layers will be lost and so on.

Paint Shop Pro :: Save As Type JPG

Mar 31, 2013

When I open an image from my NAS, edit the image, and then attempt to save it as the default jpg type I get the following error message: "The filename, directory name, or volume label syntax is incorrect."

This error doesnt happen with any other image filetype. It doesnt happen with local hard drives. It doesnt happen with unedited images. It just appears to happen with edited images, the default jpg filetype, and my NAS.

When I actually type in ".jpg" at the end of the filename it works.

Its an annoyance i would like solved because I do this a lot.

Photoshop :: CS6 Takes A Long Time To Start

Dec 19, 2012

Windows 7, Photoshop CS6 13.0.1 x64.  I updated from CS5 and all was well.  Photoshop came up very fast when it was started.  One day for a reason I've forgotten, I had to delete and reinstall CS6 and ever since then it's taken I'd estimate maybe 20 seconds to come up.  If I shut CS6 down and restart it without rebooting the computer, it comes up relatively fast.
I'm assuming there is a file that should be starting on boot and apparently it got lost along the way.  But I see nothing unusual in my startup file.

VideoStudio :: Long Time To Create Disk With X4?

Mar 9, 2012

Tonight I created my first DVD disk (ie authored a DVD) using X4 which I purchased last year.It seemed to take a much longer time to complete especially the creation of the title (menu?) than what I am used to using VS10.

Is this normal?

Is this a known 'problem' with X4?

What are others using to author a DVD?

Should I use VS10 to 'create disk'?

BTW I authored using the same characteristics as I used when I created my DVD file (create video file) so I don't think that it re-rendered.Also I am creating a 'standard definition' DVD not high def.

Paint Shop Pro :: X5 - Save A Workspace Oddity

Oct 21, 2012

When I Save a workspace, I untick Include Open Images. I have always done this. When I save a workspace in X5, the 'Include Open Images' is always ticked. I un-tick it and save the workspace. X5 then asks me if I want to save changes to the open images in the workspace. Why? I click on No, repeated for all the images that are open at this time.

I then click on Save a Workspace again and yes, the Include Open Images is ticked again. In previous versions of PSP this remained unticked until the user ticked it again.

Paint Shop Pro :: How To Save Edited File

When I tried to get a large print developed, I was told the resolution was too low and the picture was pixelated. How do I save the edited photo and keep it at 3mb?

Paint Shop Pro :: Getting Error When Try To Save A Picture?

Sep 10, 2012

It's been a few days now that when I try to save a picture (either with "save", "Save as", or "save copy"), I get the following message popping up:

"because of the limitations of the specified file format (and possibly the save options you've selected), the saved file will be limited to a merged image. Would you like to continue?"

I have hit ok to that and the software would save the picture, but when I checked the size of each picture I noticed a dramatic drop in size (from 6.5MB to roughly 1.3MB). Just for the record, the editing I did to these pictures was minimal, just a little rotation and a removal of maybe 2mm from each size.

First of all, is it normal to get this message?

And then, is such a drop in size normal?

it's pictures in JPEG taken from the camera and saved as JPEG.
