    "The trial from the BlackMagic site fails to work with Vista"

    June 1, 2008  |   By ChrisBrown34

    Version: BlackMagic 2.82

    Cons

    I downloaded this from their site - first it failed as it wanted Admin Privs - then it failed creating menu group (twice) - They are impossible to e-mail direct from windows mail. and the forum (which I joined for some help) auto deleted both new topic and reply to therir post

    DONT TOUCH THIS WITH A BARGEPOLE - If you have Vista - the company is not cotactable if you get a problem

    90% of New computers have Vista on board (after all it's been out for years.. It's about time developers brought out compatible versions

    "This product is complete rip off"

    January 11, 2008  |   By rippoffsoftwares

    Version: BlackMagic 2.82

    Pros

    I purchased version 2.85 home edition and foolishly upgraded to their so called PRO VERSION.The guys themselves don't know the problems with their software which means it's probabably not their creation and it works on spyware cookies, temporary files etc. They refused to refund and now they have refused to give a key since the product gets disabled after a disk clean up.I've nothing more to say except that I gor this from a button on Google. That buttun , no longer works.

    Cons

    Terrible stuff and terrible support. If you are looking for getting ripped off then buy this product. I'll be reporting this matter to google. They don't know the problems whith this product and cannot give a key since this is not their creation and not giving a key proves that they into piracy of "Their product" Neither do they refund and don't know that their own creation gets disabled after a disk clean up. I tracked their email and found that my emails were being forwarded elsewhere.

    "Useless Software"

    January 11, 2008  |   By saddamhanged

    Version: BlackMagic 2.82

    Pros

    Home version costs 40 Dollars. Business and Professional editions UPGRADE cost 208 Dollars while a direct buy of Pro is 199 US Dollars. The "Higher editions don't have any extra features as claimed. PaintNet, Fx foto are top class and free. COREL/ACDESEE/PAINTSHOP Give far better results and are less that 1/3 the price of this software. Pro /biz have 10 Dollars Pic perk/Fx Foto Luminance, Hue, Saturation

    Cons

    Cleaning temparary files, Spyware/Adware disables the software to a 10 Day trial edition. BUY IT SINCE I'D LOVE TO SEE YOU YELL.Contact me if I'm wrong.

    "The Best Articial Intelligence software around anywhere in the world"

    November 19, 2007  |   By frustratedwitheurope

    Version: BlackMagic 2.82

    Pros

    I tried Acdsee with a terrible support and finally after 3 years it got activated. I tried Paintshop Pro but it's sick. Corel by itself is sick. Adobe is a money collector. Fotofx of Triscape[Spyware according to Mcafee] is great but Mcafee site advisor wants to be bribed in the garb of upgradation before giving clearance. It's the same which destroyed NEOTRACE TOTALLY. The only spyware site in the world is Microsoft which hacked my license and I had to buy a new one. Their support gave me the phone number of a grocery for activating their Genuine Advantage[It's genuine advantage for them so much so that they know only phone numbers of grocers !] Coming to Black Magic:

    Here are my feelings for this fantastic software :

    1. It's got some artificial intelligence.

    2. The only software any where in the world in the field of top class colorization of B/w pictures

    3. It works miraculously and clearly there's some artificial intelligence behind it.

    4. The home Edition of version 2.85 is cool or rather the coolest. I would buy the Pro version too for getting more features.

    5. If anyone wants to buy a photo colorizer than Black Magic is the best. No other photo editing software would do what black magic does.

    6. THE SUPPORT IS FANTASTIC TOO.

    7. I use Fotofx for removing blemishes and Ashamppo's Photo Optimizer for instant optimization[Yellow old B/W photos become totally white and brand new. After that I USE BLACK MAGIC. I get Outstanding results. Thanks to Google which has the habit of picking up the best Stuff on earth.

    5 Stars

    Cons

    Cons: One issue needs fixing. After drive cleaning the software converts into trial version and the license and the string have to re -entered again. Hope Black Magic guys fix this.

    "I am a user since 2003, and am convinced that its the best colorization software"

    November 21, 2006  |   By rosshamilton

    Version: BlackMagic 2.82

    Pros

    Don't believe the competitors' negative reviews here - just try it and see for yourself.

    I have tried a few other coloring programs and been disappointed with the results (like looking through a cello film). Blackmagic on the other hand gives you results so amazing, you would have difficulty believing your eyes. Its very real - take this from a professional art critic and an artist.

    I am writing this mainly because I feel the program has been unfairly criticized by (possibly) a competitor - and so I would like for others not to be put off by these selfish remarks and discover the joy of using this excellent software. This is one program that has really impressed me by its novelty and true innovativeness. Its got that distinctive quality that makes you a loyal fan, and I am one.

    And by the way, Neuraltek support is excellent. I have contacted them on several occassions during the past three years, and got very prompt and truely professional after sales care.

    "Home version lacks features."

    January 25, 2006  |   By rjsche

    Version: BlackMagic 2.82

    Pros

    Trial version is excellent. A great tool to colorize B/W photos.

    Cons

    After using the trial version I purchased the home version for $39 only to find out it is a watered down featureless program. This is classic bait and switch! Beware, the only BlackMagic here is taking your money!
