Pros: I love software that never crashes. With the latest versions 100s of filters are built in. It does what some of the most expensive software does only much easier. Works with Win10.
Cons: I cannot think of anything.
Other Thoughts: Read the help files and join the forum. You will meet some wonderful people. More special filters for free. Print to a PDF or directly to your printer settings. Beautiful color.
