Sleek and simple editor

Perform basic image-editing tasks with this well-designed program.

Image editors are a dime a dozen these days, and a lot of them just aren't worth messing with. Image Editor and Converter Pro, however, is. It's not going to replace Photoshop, but it's a well-designed program that puts the most common photo-editing functions at your fingertips.

The program's interface is clearly modeled after Office 2007, which makes it extremely easy to navigate. Users simply open the image they want to edit and access the program's various tools through a set of well-organized tabs. The Edit tab contains basics, such as rotation, flipping, cropping, and resizing tools. The View tab allows users to switch between images and zoom in and out, as well as view the program's built-in Help file. The Image Info tab displays each image's metadata, and the Color and Effects tabs contain everything you would expect: contrast, sharpness, compression, resolution, grayscale and colorization options, filters, noise, and so on. The program also allows users to save images in a staggering number of different formats; we lost count after 70. We can't say that Image Editor and Converter Pro has any major features that we haven't seen before, but we found the program to be refreshing in terms of its easy navigation and straightforward utilities. This is a great choice for novice photo editors, but even more-advanced users will find it to be an effective, lightweight alternative to more heavy-duty editing programs.

Image Editor and Converter Pro is free to try, but some features are disabled in the trial version. The program installs and uninstalls without issues. We recommend this program to all users.
