    "A bit of a learning curve, but the price (free) is right!"

    January 22, 2008  |   By MaxLaw


    First, the price. I marvel at those who work long and hard, only to give their software away. Kudos for that.

    Next, after learning how to handle the software (see below), it has some simple effects, such as zoom, crop and other editing that are quick and easy,


    Learning to use the software is a definite learning curve. Hover your mouse at the top of the screen when a photo that you selected showing by itself and you can select another photo. (Or you can have the software set for a mouse left click shows photo before, and right click to see the next photo.) Hovering at the left side near the middle and lots of editing comes up for viewing and/or selecting. Hover at the bottom right and you can crop, zoom or some of the more frequently used editing...also e-mail, etc. Once you have used this software a few times, it almost becomes second nature.
