    "Invasive Program - Works But Requires A Lot Of Effort"

    January 18, 2012  |   By Old Dog New Tricks

    Pros

    - Works as claimed, and can give some great results if you put in the time

    Cons

    - Installation will also automatically install the Facemoods toolbar, so be warned
    - This program is NOT intuitive, the 5 work screens use text and icons in an inconsistant manner. No doubt, the habitual user will find it ok, but the occassional user like me will have a steep learning curve each time you return to the program
    - There is a marked absense of any AUTO editing, for example for colour adjustment and, in particular, removal of background colours

    Summary

    Overall, I was disappointed with this program. I am never very happy when there is no custom installation offered, and incensed when I must then uninstall the invasive Facemoods toolbar (thankfully installed as a separate element). The only offer available during installation is whether to install as the preferred toolbar, not to not take it in the first instance !!!!
    The editing tools on offer are adequate for a merge program ie, colour adustment, sizing, cropping cloning and erasing, but I could not recommend this program just for general photo editing. However, these tools are fine when used to seamlessly merge 2 (or more) images. It'a a pity that both the erase and cloning tools are so limited, since both require extensive manipulation even just to eliminate the background to any image.
    Overall, I found the process clumsy and too demanding in both time and effort to achieve the effect I was looking for. There are easier and better tools available, and I could not recommend this software.
