BatchPhoto

CNET Editors' review

BatchPhoto doesn't include any home run features, but its step-by-step walkthroughs make it great for beginners. It lets anyone crop, add borders, annotate, and apply filters and effects to multiple photos at once. If you're new to the photo-editing world, it might be the program you're looking for if you've got a little cash to spend.

You can use all of the features of this program without paying, but it will put a watermark on your photos. The program starts you off with a click-through tutorial, complete with videos, that can take some time to complete. Luckily, you can exit the tutorial at any time and get right to work. Editing photos with the program follows the same step-by-step process of the tutorial. BatchPhoto's wizard boils everything down to a few stages -- Add Photos, Edit Photos, Setup, and Process. In the main editing stage, you can apply filters, borders, and other decorations that will lighten up your pictures. You can also crop and resize photos, as well as add text with relative ease. Once you've clicked "Process," the program goes to work, but it doesn't overwrite your photos in case you mess up. It also doesn't take very long for the program to process and edit your photos, which is a plus.

With BatchPhoto, you're not paying for advanced features, but for ease of use. If you're new to editing photos, then this is a perfect choice. The $29.95 charge is worth paying just to learn the ropes before investing in more expensive options that are generally much harder to use.

Editors' note: This is a review of the full version of BatchPhoto 3.5.2. The trial version contains watermark on output.

    "Simple to use and does the job"

    June 1, 2013  |   By tcwild

    Version: BatchPhoto 3.5.1

    Pros

    'Natural' interface, wide range of tools

    Cons

    More than what I needed (resizing), the 'watermark' in every photo

    Summary

    All-in-all a decent download.

    "Best batch processing software I found!"

    April 8, 2013  |   By CosminUn

    Version: BatchPhoto 3.5.1

    Pros

    Everything works as expected or even better, no malware/pups as reported by another user (maybe a competitor?!). CNet does not post malware on their download site!

    The time/date feature is great and the interface is very well designed.

    Cons

    None so far except that it's not free... but no one does great things for free, right?

    Summary

    Best batch processing software I found, if you find a better one let me know!

    "Watermarking. Really?"

    May 20, 2012  |   By ByteMe11

    Version: BatchPhoto 3.1.2

    Pros

    It's stupid-simple. It works.

    Cons

    Really? You watermark the images in your trial version? Congratulations. You had a paying customer up to that point.

    November 30, 2010  |   By johncoleman

    Version: BatchPhoto 2.7

    Pros

    Has loads of feature that will edit loads of photos in a short time

    Cons

    Have to drag through setting it up each time. would like to see a 'saved setup' feature that I could apply next time I open batchphoto to edit more pictures.

    Summary

    Nice mass photo editing program with loads of features.

    "READ THIS BEFORE DOWNLOADING!"

    December 2, 2009  |   By KearnsAK

    Version: BatchPhoto 2.6

    Pros

    Contrast adjustment filter worked great. (The only other filters I tried were resizing and cropping)

    Cons

    Can't resize pics based on kbs (4 easy internet upload & viewing). Unusual cropping tool & VERY time consuming. Bad program removal - undeletable items in my "Programs" folder (link to their website and 'buy' option). Removal FROZE Internet Explorer!

    Summary

    I could't resize pics based on kbs, 4 easy internet upload and viewing. I removed the program from my computer and their internet feedback page froze my internet browser. After uninstalling, I went to check my PROGRAMS and the title for Batch Photo was still there. When I 'right-clicked' on it for fast removal, the options had been modified to not permit deleting.

    Unusual cropping tool & VERY time consuming. Bad program removal - undeletable items in my "Programs" folder (link to their website and 'buy' option). Removal FROZE Internet Explorer!

    "Lack of customer support"

    May 11, 2009  |   By fernandopastran

    Version: BatchPhoto 2.5

    Pros

    is a great program on the try out version, excelent to work with up to 5 pictures at the time

    Cons

    Made the payment for the full version 15 hours ago and the code hasn't arrived and every single time I call customer support they tell me that will arrive anytime soon

    Summary

    I personally don't like to feel like somebody is taking my money, since I made the payment, but haven't received the code to access the full version. Is that actually legal?

    Updated on May 17, 2009

    Few hours after I posted the last review I got the code via email and the next day I received another email apologizing for the inconvenience and explaining me that customer support takes 24 hours to reply emails, they also offered me the Pro version at no cost due the problems I had with the product.

    "Best batch photo editing software out there"

    February 25, 2006  |   By db_online

    Version: BatchPhoto 1

    Pros

    Quick and easy to use.

    In three easy steps you can select a batch of photos, define a series of edits, and rename the files.

    Took me maybe 30 seconds to rotate, resize, and rename 200 files.

    Cons

    So far it does everything I need it to do, and does it quickly. No cons!

    "Excellent Batch Processing"

    January 13, 2006  |   By DaCrazyAssDJ

    Version: BatchPhoto 1.0.1

    Pros

    Using the program was easy and quick, I really liked the filters it offered me as well as the filename modifaction. I was also amazed at how many different output types were available. The previews were also found to be excellent.

    Cons

    The tagging feature was limited and when outputting you needed a premade folder. I suggested these and a few other additions to the company that graciously accepted them.

    "5-star Photo Tool"

    January 5, 2006  |   By McGooby

    Version: BatchPhoto 1

    Pros

    This tool is great for resizing dozens of pictures because it's easy to use and works fast. I also added comments and date to my pictures very easily!
