Corel Photo Album is a tool for importing and organizing photos from a digital camera. It is similar to the iPhoto tool for Mac users. Although Corel Photo Album 6 has a built-in utility that checks for software updates periodically, you may wish to check for updates manually to confirm that you have the most up-to-date version of the software available. Check for updates in your software to confirm this, or download all of the available patches directly from Corel's website.

Step 1

Launch Corel Photo Album 6. Click the "Help" menu in the upper-right corner of the window, then click "Update Software." The software should update automatically. If the update is completed successfully or if you are told that no update is available, click "Finish." The process is complete. If an error message is received, continue to the next step to download the updates manually.

Step 2

Browse to the Corel Photo Album 6.3.1 download page using the first link in "Resources." Click "Continue Your Download," then click "Begin Download." Save the resulting file to the desktop and close Corel Photo Album.

Step 3

Double-click "CPA631_EN_Patch.exe" on the desktop. Accept the license terms, then click "Next."

Step 4

Click "Update" when prompted, then click "Finish." Corel Photo Album is updated to version 6.3.1.

Download and install Corel Photo Album 6.3.3 using the second link in "Resources." Install the update using the same method as in steps 3 and 4.


  • The most recent version of Corel Photo Album as of 2010 is Corel Photo Album 7. Updating Corel Photo Album 6 will not put the new version of the software on your computer; Corel Photo Album 7 must be purchased separately.
