Hornil StylePix

CNET Editors' review

There are image editing programs that are so bare bones that they barely do anything besides crop and rotate, and there are behemoth image editors that use a lot of system resources and require a lot of time to master. Hornil StylePix falls squarely in between these two extremes, providing users with a powerful editing tool that is still intuitive and fairly easy to learn.

The program's interface is plain, reminding us a little bit of Microsoft Paint, but with sleek icons that give it a more modern feel. Toolbars across the top and down the left side give the program a slightly cluttered appearance at first glance, but it will quickly become apparent to users that the icons are familiar, well-organized, and described by helpful tooltips; what may at first seem cluttered quickly starts to look like a lot of useful tools at your fingertips. StylePix provides more than the typical number of photo editing features, with a wide variety of special effects. Some of these features work better than others--we didn't have a whole lot of luck getting realistic-looking results with the red eye correction tool, for example--but on the whole we impressed with what the program includes, and most of the features worked as expected. The program's online Help file is lengthy, addressing each of its many features, but we do wish that it went into more detail about each one. Overall, StylePix didn't exactly wow us, but we think it's a solid photo editing tool that should meet the needs of many advanced-amateur users.

Hornil StylePix installs and uninstalls without issues. We recommend this program to all users.

    "Great Product at a fantastic price"

    November 30, 2010  |   By oracle741

    Version: Hornil StylePix 1.6.5

    Pros

    1. Simple to use.
    2. Free.
    3. lots of options.
    4. Free

    Cons

    1. Using the sliders to adjust the level of sensitivity for a tool is a bit off; just a small change can have a large effect. A button and slider option would work better where each 10% increment could be selected, and then use a slider to tweak.

    Summary

    Does all it should, and does so much without cost.

    "Almost great photo editor"

    November 27, 2010  |   By barhog

    Version: Hornil StylePix 1.6.5

    Pros

    Loads of features. Wide range of image filters with live preview. Paint functions. Layers. Available in portable edition. Small program size.

    Cons

    Maybe a biit rough round the edges. e.g. instant preview sometimes stops working then later starts again on my PC. My Wacom tablet behaves strangely only in this program.

    Summary

    A good poor mans photoshop. Much easier to use than GIMP and much less of a CPU and memory hog to boot. Shame it doesn't work with my tablet.

    "Simple to use, does everything I need"

    November 13, 2010  |   By yossiglass

    Version: Hornil StylePix 1.6.5

    Pros

    I tried other similar tools, and this one does everything they other did, but much simpler for me to use - no need for reading any help/doc as in the others

    Cons

    Didn't find any, yet

    Summary

    Excellent software, simple to use, does everything I need

    "First impressions compared to Paint Shop Pro"

    November 13, 2010  |   By andrewspence

    Version: Hornil StylePix 1.6.5

    Pros

    free to download. clear toolbars.

    Cons

    renames all image files with the Horni Stylepix Document file type. I prefer to know the actual file type as in .jpg or .bmp for example. Selections cannot be pasted and rotated by degree. Pasting procedure awkward. Colour dropper awkward to use.

    Summary

    These are first impressions only. I am used to Paint Shop Pro. This opens files in a new window, within the view pane, and multiple images can be open and manipulated individually. Copying and pasting, resizing and distortion are easy. PSP is superior in changing colours/hue/shade/intensity/light or dark, soft or hard.
    I will continue to explore and learn Stylepix to see if it has tools I dont know about yet.
