    "Needs better Technical Support. (Magix Photo Manager)"

    December 1, 2012  |   By penfoil

    Version: Magix Photo Manager 15 9.0.0.228

    Pros

    From what I have read on the box it sounds like a really good product with a lot of interesting features.

    Cons

    I sent them three or four inquiries for Tech support on two or more of there web pages. A week later and there has never been a reply. Every time I run the Add folder (which it instructs you to do before doing anything else) my computer crashes. Just incase it was the computer I installed it again on a different computer (brand new computer). Crashed again with the same error message. Something about NTDLL.DLL. I bought the software specifically because it listed a feature called Find Duplicates on the back cover of the box. The only feature I could find resembling that was "Find Similar photos" under the edit drop down. A pop-up window opens up and I don't know what to do after that and there does not appear to be anything within the product to explain how to use the feature. What I saw in the pop-up seems to suggest that you have to pick the specific file and then the program will only find a duplicate of that picture. I have 40,000 pictures. I can't do that one at a time.

    Summary

    In Summary, I was unable to get past any of the cons to enjoy what might have been a number of wonderful features. Then again I might not have found those features so wondeful if I had to deal with the same kinds of issues that the other product features put me through.

    "Trouble.lack of (Customer friendly)tech support."

    January 16, 2012  |   By tony182297

    Version: Magix Photo Manager 15 10

    Pros

    I Don't know of any

    Cons

    I can not open the program, I have tried trouble shooting. The tried Tech support....There is none. I use Magix Photo show 10, Photo manager come with it.
    You would think a new purchase would come with FREE tech support. It doesn't.

    Summary

    Magix is a good product, so what would have bee a score of 100, is now a score of 50....due to that lack of (Customer friendly)tech support.

    "A great program"

    October 2, 2011  |   By jvtaylor100

    Version: Magix Photo Manager 15 10

    Pros

    Does not automatically scan the drive for photos, only scans the folders you select so the database does not get huge for no reason.
    The automatic photo optimizer does a great job & you can chose between destructive or non destructive modes.

    Cons

    I have not found any

    Summary

    This is a wonderful program & I recommend it to everyone.

    "Does what it says on the tin."

    September 20, 2011  |   By venus_loon

    Version: Magix Photo Manager 15 10

    Pros

    Easy photo organising and album making. Haven't used editing side because I use other software for this.

    Cons

    None really so long as you don't mind spending time updating EXIF data.

    Summary

    Good piece of software - MAGIX could probably charge for this if they wanted to.

    "Bloated with little features"

    March 31, 2010  |   By cybergaar

    Version: Magix Photo Manager 15 7.0

    Pros

    It Installed

    Cons

    100MB+ download, avgerage 100MB memory usage, 50-80% constant CPU usage in preview mode with nothing happening. Drops big hidden thumb index files in each image directory. Free but have to register for free code. Does not uninstall clean.

    Summary

    You can do this with Picasa or even Windows Live Photo Gallery. Has big buttons to buy stuff from their site. I would recommend looking elsewhere.
