Easy edits

Streamline your photo-editing process with this simple program.

We tend to put off editing our digital photos because we find it be such a tedious, time-consuming task. BatchPhoto Pro seeks to solve this problem, making photo editing a simple, three-step process. Although it's obviously not going to give you the same results you'd get after hours spent in Photoshop, we found it to be an easy, intuitive way to take care of basic editing.

The program's interface is well-designed, making it easy for even novice users to edit their images. There are three steps: Add Photos, Add Filters, and Setup. In the first step, users select the images that they want to work with. Next, users choose from among 40 different filters that can be applied to the photos. All the basic editing functions are here: cropping, rotating, annotations, adjustments for contrast and balance, noise reduction, and a wide variety of special effects. In the third step, users simply choose an output folder and format, and click the Process button. Overall we thought BatchPhoto Pro was effective and easy to use, and we especially liked the way it provided previews through every step of the process. The only problem we encountered was with the output location; no matter which folder we selected, the program always put our processed images back in the original folder. It did, at least, have the decency to ask us whether or not to overwrite the originals. This problem was not addressed by the built-in Help file, which was brief but adequate.

BatchPhoto Pro has a 30-day trial period, and the trial version lets users edit only five photos per session. It installs and uninstalls without issues. We recommend this program to all users.
