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!
Yes, we've had discussions with Alienskin during the X7 development cycle.
Cool beans! Alien Skin plugins have been a favorite of mine, and I'm sure of others for a long time. I would hate to lose them.
