RATIONALE: comp.graphics.apps.paint-shop-pro

Paint Shop Pro is a Windows based raster graphics editing program.
Many beginning and advanced users have expressed an interest in the
creation of a world-wide Usenet group dedicated specifically to this
program.  This is evident from the positive response generated by the
first RFD (over 15 positive responses to date), current Usenet posting
volume regarding Paint Shop Pro, and the number of inquiries Jasc
receives from users looking for a Paint Shop Pro newsgroup (about 10
per week).

Many users have stated that they would like to communicate with each
other in a simple way without having to search several newsgroups for
the various discussions and answers regarding this program.

There is currently no newsgroup for specific Paint Shop Pro questions
and discussion.  The creation of the newsgroup
comp.graphics.apps.paint-shop-pro will help these people to find a
common forum for discussions regarding Paint Shop Pro.
