6.2 Paint Shop Pro 8

Paint Shop Pro can remember your preferred file type in its Save As dialog.

1. From the menu choose File > Preferences > General Program Preferences.

2. Click the Display and Caching tab.

3. Mark the box labeled "Re-use last type used in file save-as dialog". This option will tell Paint Shop Pro to always use the last file type that was saved.

From the menu choose File > Save As and save a file in the format you want to be remembered. Paint Shop Pro will then always default to that format when using the Save As option. This file format choice will remain until a different file format is chosen.

One possible reason is, if you have Eye Candy 3.1, Eye Candy 4000 demo and Eye Candy 4000 in the same plugin folder, PSP 8 will not recognize the paid version, only the demo.
Once you delete the Eye Candy 4000 demo version, PSP 8 should recognize the paid version.
