I love using Alien Skin plugins like Eye Candy. Eye Candy 6 (with a few tweaks) would work with PhotoPaint x6. But Eye Candy 7 never would.
I download/installed the trial version of CorelDraw x7. And, to my surprise, Eye Candy 7 opens up and appears to work fine with PhotoPaint x7. Yahooooo!
Ah, good to know, and thanks for the heads up!
