    "Only a trial version valid for one week"

    June 11, 2014  |   By sputnik10

    Version: Magix Photo Designer 7.0

    Pros

    Good software with relatively simple interface.
    No problem of malware of adware

    Cons

    Only valid for one week.
    Help menu and basic instructions limited

    Summary

    2 star for being a trial version only. Otherwise, I would have probably rated it as 4 stars.

    "A waste of time"

    August 29, 2013  |   By jdobbins

    Version: Magix Photo Designer 7.0

    Pros

    None that I could find.

    Cons

    I downloaded this under the impression that it was a free offer but after numerous web pages I was never given my "FREE" registration! A waste of time.

    "Loaded with adware"

    August 19, 2013  |   By Diggindeeper

    Version: Magix Photo Designer 7.0

    Pros

    The pic I did try out did what they say it would, but still wasn't that impressed.

    Cons

    The installation is ridiculous.

    Summary

    First thing to do is you MUST choose CUSTOM installation - and even that doesn't stop the installation from happening anyway - I found the program in all 3 of my Browsers - Firefox, IE and Chrome - so be ready to disable it. Also go type in msnconfig in the search box and go to startup and uncheck TCrdMain Application. That's the program that wasn't supposed to install when you clicked custom. Nice!! Then make sure to click CUSTOM again or you will end up with that nasty ASK Toolbar and all the junk it spreads all over your registry. It is next to impossible to clean the ASK junk off your computer.

    Now I ask is the Program WORTH it? I don't think so!

    "Great free software"

    April 19, 2012  |   By 5stringsteve

    Version: Magix Photo Designer 7.0

    Pros

    Free and functional.
    Get's the job done.

    Cons

    A little confusing.

    Summary

    I've used this a whole lot already. Magix has very good products. This one is a great little free problem-solver. Like their other stuff it's a bit quirky, but you get the hang of it. There are tons of options out there for photo editing, and some are free with even more capability I've heard, but for common tasks with plenty of features in a simple interface, this fits the bill. I was going to and probably still will get their full-feature software that does graphic design almost on a par with Photoshop. But for now this is a great little tool.
    Remember to choose the custom installation to avoid the Ask Toolbar. This is annoying but totally avoidable. I suppose it's one way that Magix subsidizes their product line and keeps their prices very low considering all of the features they include. Also their customer service is totally lacking, but especially with this product you shouldn't be needing that.

    "I expected more"

    May 28, 2011  |   By gabrolena

    Version: Magix Photo Designer 7.0

    Pros

    The pics that I finally figured out how to do were OK.

    Cons

    Difficult to understand exactly what things meant. Not enough training/explanation included.

    Summary

    I would not pay for this program. My 2003 Picture It had more features and was easier to use.
