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.

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 :: 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 :: X4 Takes 5 Minutes To Boot Up

Sep 24, 2011

Ronj2 - 4 hours ago

X4 works fine for me on my 2yr old Vista 64bit quad machine with 8gigs except that it takes almost 5 minutes to boot up so I can use it.

The application boots up to the edit screen than I just get the busy signal for the next 4-5 minutes. Task manager shows it is not responding. Works fine after that.

I also have X2 and it works just fine. If I make any changes to the uncataloged folders or file format exclusions under preferences in X4 it does the same thing (5 minites wait) untill the changes have taken affect. With that in mind I believe its a cataloging issue. Once its up and running its no problem. This is a trial if that makes any difference.I have tried the reset while booting it up ( hold down the crtl & alt keys) and that causes the program to crash after I select okay from the reset menu. The program is reset though after reloading it.

I don't use a graphic card and can not get GL 3.0 support or higher if that maked any difference like it does with Corel DVD movie factory which won't work on my computer.

Paint Shop Pro :: Selecting A Long String Of Text

Paint Shop Pro :: X5 Closes Every Time When Trying To Merge Layers

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 :: 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.

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!

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.

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.

Photoshop :: CS6 Takes Really Long Time To Load Files

Jul 14, 2013

I have CS6 64bit on a reasonably up to date windows 7 system. Just checked for CS6 upgrades 7/14/13, and have the latest version (
Things have been working fine since I installed the product about a month ago.
At some point something went wrong and it now takes 30 seconds or more to load a file via "file>open..."
It also takes 30 or more second just for photomerge to display the file dialog from "file>automate>photomerge..."
All other photo s/w I have loads raw files, tifs, jpegs, etc... very quickly. This is CS6 specific.
I disabled loading of plugins, didn't work (CS6 starts quickly enough, just not so much file loading).

CorelDRAW X6 :: 64-bit Load Time Long But Once Loaded Then Freezes?

Apr 3, 2013

I have had CorelDRAW X6 for about 6-months with no problems.  Recently I try to open X6 and the load time is extremly long.  Once it finally loads the screen looks normal but when I click on anything on the screen i just get a "ding" sound and the screen is frozen.  I actually have to go to task manager to shut it off.

Once in a while I can open a previous design and then everything will work fine. I thought I would try to re-install the software. I tried to uninstall but when I get to the uninstall page I see three options "Modify", "Repair", or "Remove".  I can click on these but there is not other botton on the page like and OK or Continue, so I am stuck.

This software is very important to my t-shirt design business. how to either get it to load normally and act normal or at least be able to uninstall and re-install?

I have already tried deleting unnecessary fonts, views and color styles. I also restored corel to factory defaults (using F8 key at start up) but some cdr files still take a long time to open.

Photoshop :: PSCS3 Takes A Long Time To Close

FWIW, Bridge CS3 can have the same problem.

3ds Max :: Saving Old Scene File Takes A Long Time?

Jul 25, 2013

Have open a old max scene. And it take a very long time to save. That can have multiple reasons. Found a new (for me):

My old scene has a "render output" path to a no longer exists netzwork drive. This slow down max on save. Don't know why max access the output path on save ;( Slow down is also the Assert Tracking dialogue and "Render Output/Files..." Dialogue... Maybe max always tries to access the not existing network drive, every time ;(

Lightroom :: 5.3 64 Bit - Import Takes Long Time Loading

Jan 16, 2014

So I just recently purchased Lightroom 5.3 and installed it on a brand new clean install of Windows 7.   When I attempt to import RAW files into LR from a secondary hard drive, Lightroom just stalls out for five to ten minutes.  Eventually, if I wait long enough, the Import dialogue screen loads and I get to wait another five to ten minutes to choose my secondary drive with my RAW files on it.  When I can select that drive and click the directory with my files, I get to wait ANOTHER five to ten minutes for it to accept that choice and load my photos into the Import window.  Once I get past all that and hit the Import button, it actually loads the files into LR just fine and I can work as normal.  I have never had this issue with this specific drive when I had Lightroom 3 and 4, so I don't know why suddenly LR 5 would not like it.
OS - Windows 7 SP1 64 bit
LR Version - 5.3 64 Bit
Processor - Intel Core 2 Duo
RAM - 8 GB
Secondary Drive - 2 TB SATA internal
