It ain't bad indeed.

While there are a few things 'toshop will do that Paint Shop Pro won't, they aren't essentials. And then, most of the time, you could do it anyway, albeit it's a different process.

Gotta love the simplicity and the (helpfull) help files, though! For the price, it's VERY good value.

I've been used to using old versions of paint shop pro. So, is it worth sticking to what i know and getting PSP-X or should i try to learn photoshop ?

PSP-X is indeed a great value, much better than Photoshop Elements IMO. If you only shoot in JPEG this is everything you need. However, CS2 has some important advantages if you are a RAW shooter. First and foremost it has much better 16 bit/channel support. In PSP-X only about half of the filters work in 16 bit mode, for instance Levels (histogram adjustment in PSP) doesn't. Second, PSP-X despite the claims of increased speed, is still considerably slower, especially handling large 16 bit TIFF files.

I also like PSPx a lot, I don't have PSCS but I use PS7, the only think lacking that I need/want is the ability to convert color space like PS does, I normally do all my processing in aRGB and the convert to sRGB for web posting and I can't do that in PSPx. If it wans't for that I think I'd be using PSPx exclusively by now.
