The problem... I have tried trial versions of both Elements and Paint Shop Pro and both are great programs but both seem to give me eye fatigue/irritation. Seems that when I view photos with the Windows viewer/editor built into Vista on my laptop or using Picasa (on the laptop and PC) my eyes are OK. The only difference I can come up with is that the Windows editor and Picasa open larger viewing areas while both trial versions of PSE and PSP are smaller. Does that make sense? Questions... Will the views be larger with purchased software versus the trial versions? Maybe I am missing something, is there a way to view a larger full frame photo in PSE or PSP? For editing sake, are the smaller views in PSE and PSP the correct viewing size versus the larger view in Windows (practicaly full screen) or Picasa (not quite full screen but good size viewing)? I can surf the internet for hours reading and casually viewing photos of various sizes and not have this problem on either computer. Let me sit down to try and work in PSE or PSP and I'm not there very long before my eyes are killing me. My monitor sizes are 15" on the laptop and 17" LCD on the PC. Is a larger monitor in my future if I want to use PSE or PSP? HELP!!
