Opening and closing images

You can open most image formats in Corel Paint Shop Pro. You can open the images by using the menu bar in the main program window or by using the Browser palette. For more information about using the Browser palette, see "Browsing through image folders" on page 30.

You can associate specific file formats with Corel Paint Shop Pro, such as JPEG, TIF, or PNG, so that these files will open in Corel Paint Shop Pro when you double-click them.
