"These days, there is certainly no shortage of graphics editors for Linux. Several already come with most Linux distributions, and many others can easily be downloaded from the Internet. Casual users, however, may find some of these editors too complex to set up or use. Other editors are more specialized and have more limited functionality. Well, if you're in need of an easy- to-use photo-editing package, Corel's Photo-Paint 9 for Linux is worthy of serious consideration."
"Corel Photo-Paint is truly a fully featured photo-editing suite. It is especially well-suited for users who are already familiar with the Corel Draw Graphics Suite on Windows platforms. It includes image-scanning capabilities, batch processing of images, direct Internet publishing, and even the ability to create PDF files. Any feature you'd expect from Adobe's Photoshop, or other similar package, can be found in Photo-Paint."
"All in all, Corel Photo-Paint 9 for Linux is a good choice for anyone who wants a free application with basic photo-editing and touchup capabilities. While many may prefer GIMP for quick and dirty image editing, Corel Photo-Paint may become the new favorite for batch processing of images and complex graphical effects."
