The only legal option for a free download of PaintShop Pro is Corel's official free trial version, which is available from PaintShopPro.com. Corel also occasionally has special offers with deep discounts on PaintShop Pro and other Corel software.
Corel's free trials are fully functional versions of its latest software. However, they are only available for use within 30 days of downloading. Other websites may offer free versions of PaintShop Pro that can be used for an unlimited amount of time, but these are pirated copies. Illegal free versions cannot be updated, and users cannot receive help from Corel's technical support team. Illegally downloaded free copies of PaintShop Pro may also contain viruses.
