The photo editing feature of Serif PagePlus X8 is really awesome and you can do modification to your photos without requiring any external photo editing software.

The new version of PagePlus also supports 64-bit scanning and contains new filter effects including the Trail effect which allows you to add retro motion blurs to your graphics and images. Picking colors from images and implementing it on your project is very easy and now Serif PagePlus also features CMYK colors even on the filter effects such as drop shadows, which are great for single color print runs.
Comparison with Other Software’s
If you compare this software with Microsoft Publisher 2013 or Adobe InDesign CC, you would know it has many more features and I would like to highlight a few. Serif PagePlus X8 has a logo design studio that helps in building logos for your customers and personal use but the above-mentioned software doesn’t have this facility.
PhotoLab is a unique image editing software which lets you edit image quickly and add beautiful effects. This facility is not available in Microsoft Publisher 2013 or Adobe InDesign CC.
Some other unique features which are present in PagePlus X8 are Built-in charting, Image cutout studio, create PDF files for professional printing, output books as EPUB® and Kindle .mobi for Readers, etc. And most importantly it is much cheaper than others with a one-time fee only.
