This photo utility offers a rich set of capabilities, from enhancing your images to creating slide shows. The Ai Picture Utility interface is fairly user-friendly, offering a traditional Explorer-like file tree that lets you browse your computer for pics.
The program includes a slide-show builder, but slide shows only can be run on the computer on which the program is installed. Ai Picture Utility offers all kinds of filters you can combine using the macros editor and apply to multiple images. You can automatically preview the results of your editing. Some of the tools, such as red-eye correction and autocorrection of gamma, flash, and contrast, seem designed to appeal to novices.
Still, more experienced users will appreciate the ability to tweak the parameters of the effects themselves. Overall, Ai Picture Utility makes a decent image-editing tool, particularly considering it costs nothing.
