Corel Corporation, a leading developer of graphics, productivity and digital media software, today announced that Corel Paint Shop Pro® Photo X2 provides fully integrated support for the Microsoft HD Photo file format.

And by including HD Photo as a native format produced by the camera when a photo is taken, camera manufacturers can participate in creating a new industry standard that will deliver an improved user experience. Rather than having to worry about camera-specific formats, customers will be able to focus their attention on the image they want to capture."

"We're pleased Corel has integrated HD Photo in Paint Shop Pro Photo X2 to provide their customers with an easy-to-use file format with industry-leading features," said Kostas Mallios, general manager of the Rich Media Group at Microsoft. "HD Photo offers the ability to retain all of the rich data from RAW files in a convenient, finished file format."
