Enlarge Photos with Photo-Paint Compatible Plug-In

April 3, 2007

Recently I talked about the trend of plug-in vendors supporting only Adobe Photoshop. One user left a comment about how frustrated they were that Genuine Fractals stopped working after Corel PHOTO-PAINT 9. I was just as frustrated until I discovered a replacement about a year ago in the form of PhotoZoom Pro. I was not able to use it as a plug-in, but it worked great as a standalone app.

Just recently, PhotoZoom Pro 2.2 was released. Yes, it works as a plug-in and they openly advertise that it works in Corel PHOTO-PAINT and Corel Paint Shop Pro. I’ve played with the new version and it still works as a standalone, but also appears in the File Formats Plug-Ins menu in Corel PHOTO-PAINT. This means that when you choose it from the menu, it will invoke the program and save the results to a common file format.

For those who haven’t played with Genuine Fractals or PhotoZoom Pro, they are used to enlarge images. Yes, you can do that natively in Corel PHOTO-PAINT. For a small increase, the built-in features work just fine. For those who need to create artwork at much larger sizes, they need a tool dedicated to the job. If you need such a tool, PhotoZoom Pro is a great solution. Should you decide to purchase a copy, please let the company know that you use Corel PHOTO-PAINT and that you are happy they are providing support.

    Hello from Yuma, Arizona,

    Just purchased the enlarge Photos plug-in and left them a thank you from a Corel PhotoPaint X3 user, with reference to your website providing the information and contact.
