Editors' review

Color us moderately impressed. At its $30 price point. CodedColor's photo-organization, editing, and sharing capabilities are hard to beat. The image editor includes basics such as photo cropping, red-eye removal, and adjustments for color, sharpness, and brightness. It also provides a number of wilder effects and filters. You can organize your photos in catalogs or access them one at a time through the file tree. The program includes a basic slide-show mode. If you want to share your photos, you can create a customized online album. There are plenty of unexpected goodies too, such as batch-conversion, multimedia support, EXIF editing, and automatic antialiasing on zoom. However, stability is a bit dodgy; we experienced some program hangs. Also, the interface, while colorful and neatly organized, is sometimes unintuitive. We wish the creators had bundled a step-by-step tutorial for beginners. Overall, CodedColor PhotoStudio is a capable option for intermediate to advanced digital photographers. Just give it a good tryout before buying.

    "User friendly and bursting with features"

    January 13, 2011

    Version: CodedColor PhotoStudio Pro 6.1.2

    Pros

    Exceptional collection of professional photo editing, batch processing and organization tools. Ranking among the top 3 in feature quantity & quality, and for a very competitive price.

    Cons

    Not well known yet in the US. A little overloaded in the interface, but that's what you would expect of a software this magnitude.

    Summary

    CodedColor PhotoStudio has a large set of useful, well-designed features combined in one package to fulfill all photo editing needs. You can uninstall most of you other photo applications, if you have this one. Good documentation and many tutorials.

    "Just fine."

    April 25, 2005   |   By computer_genius

    Version: CodedColor 4.1.4

    Pros

    Feature-rich and extensive capabilities.

    Cons

    I find the description of this product very exaggerating. It said that combining ACDSee, ThumbsPlus, and Photoshop will result in CodedColor. How come, in fact I find those products high above the standard of this app. Just ACDSee compared to this will result as CodedColor in the lower standard. Anyway, I recommend ACDSee PowerPack or ThumbsPlus better than this. I have them both on my PC. Get them now.

    "Extensive feature list - one of the top programs - but weak on docs and captions"

    February 21, 2005   |   By PicMan

    Version: CodedColor 4.1.4

    Pros

    Wide variety of picture file formats. Outstanding capability when it comes to complete and accurate EXIF and IPTC picture information. Few programs are close to it. Pan and zoom ability is generally very good. An audio file can be attached to a picture (foreground audio). Many editing tools are available. Many batch operations are available. Web albums can be made.

    Cons

    The display of only a single strip of thumbnails could slow searching down when you are reviewing hundreds of pictures. Trying to edit some EXIF information caused a program hang. Very weak when it comes to affixing captions to slide show pictures. The picture printing ability is weak and non-intuitive. Manually sorting pictures is quirky (done by filename changes!). The documentation is weak (the author suggests "experimentation" to learn the program). In some cases I found the program unstable, with repeated error messages and hangs (I had to kill the task several times). No background audio file capability. No vertical flip ability.
