It would take me a lifetime to find out all the things in PSP! there is so much in it. I do have broadband, but I think that there is enough in it for me to be getting on with. Thanks for the advice. A.
It fixes some rather serious stability issues, among other things. If you read the Release Notes pdf file it tells you all the 'fixes' the patch sorts out for you.
I've gone back to PSP 7.4 for now. I've had some serious problems with version 8 when running batch jobs with several large images, so for now I'm staying with what I know works. I also verified the above problem by running the same processes with the same source images on 3 different PCs and they all went haywire at the same point.
That's progress for you.
It's a shame really because I like the new interface and features of PSP 8.
For now though, PSP 7.4 along with PhotoShop, Fireworks and the superb Ulead PhotoImpact does my graphics processing.
Check out that Release Notes pdf for a list as long as your arm of the fixes that this patch addresses.
