Editors' review

There's nothing wrong with how PC Image Editor works--the program is simple and effective--but it lacks the options found in other editing programs. Newcomers to image editing will appreciate this simplicity, but experienced users will probably want more.

This freeware program presents itself much like Windows' Paintbrush utility. The screen is dominated by open white space that can be filled with a picture from your hard drive. Along the top run icons for saving, opening files, cutting, printing, reversing, and a clipboard. Along the side are the icons that allow users to edit their photographs. Icons for selecting, erasing, painting, drawing lines, making shapes, air brushing, and cropping will look familiar to anyone with previous experience with photo-altering software. Editing photographs is a simple process. Users can easily and intuitively choose a picture and start using the editing tools to change their shot, and all the tools worked as expected.

PC Image Editor is a basic program that doesn't have any flaws in its design. However, the editing choices are very limited compared with more professional software, and experienced users will probably want more than this freeware offers. Those new to image editing, though, might like this simple program's intuitive approach and easy navigation.

    "Simple, but still limited and buggy"

    March 08, 2013   |   By YOOPITS

    Version: PC Image Editor 5.1

    Pros

    NOW HAS ZOOM!!!
    Also, has many nice basic features: resize, rotate, flip. And numerous visual effects.

    Cons

    No crop tool!!! Without this, even the most basic image editor is not worth the trouble.
    Undo & Redo are buggy.

    Summary

    Nice, but still not a winner.

    Updated on Mar 8, 2013

    I intended to give this 3 stars. Sorry about that.

    "Buggy - Not Ready for Prime Time"

    July 13, 2012   |   By free_usa_shipping

    Version: PC Image Editor 4.0

    Pros

    Chose this program to use with my old Pentium 4 with Windows XP SP2. Simple layout - similar to MS Paint.

    Cons

    Buggy and missing basic functionality. Wasted my time using this program. Examples: Saved docs with changes but then appeared as blank pages. Had to minimize program to regain use of PC desktop. Could not find how to copy one document into another (merged) - easily done in MS Paint. A couple other stupid things like this. Switched to MS Paint and got the job done.

    Summary

    Use MS Word instead.

    "No zoom tool"

    July 04, 2011   |   By skaizun

    Version: PC Image Editor 4.0

    Pros

    None for me

    Cons

    Without a zoom tool, this is useless for me

    Summary

    I clicked on the "squiggly (curved) line" widget in hopes of getting a simple arc in my very small, hand-drawn image. Instead of getting something of comparable size that could be shaped, bent, curved, etc, a huge squiggle ran throughout the inside and even outside the borders of the image! Although the squiggle could be distorted, I couldn't figure out how to change its shape, thickness, or even move it. Not very user-friendly, especially without a zoom tool, which is either very well hidden or an unbelievable omission of functionality (yes, there's a "resize" tool, but that can introduce distortions, both in zooming in, and, zooming out to "restore" it to its original size).

    "A decent addition to MS Paint"

    April 11, 2011   |   By steveweing

    Version: PC Image Editor 4.0

    Pros

    Free. Has a lot of features in paint that allow you to add effects to photos.

    Cons

    It doesn't seem possible to zoom. You have to resize the photo rather than just zoom in and out through the application.

    Summary

    I couldn't zoom so that rendered this useless for basic image editing. MS Patin is better. Images from cameras come in big. I want to edit them without shrinking the image down and lowering the quality. If you only want to apply a photo affect, for free, this is one of many applications that works well.

    "efficient, compact replacement for MSFT's paint"

    December 27, 2010   |   By MILESCFA

    Version: PC Image Editor 4.0

    Pros

    efficient, compact

    Cons

    nothing for what it is/does

    Summary

    I use an older XP PC and MSFT's paint quit working. Paint.net has a lot of cool features BUT bogs my old system down - have to close it to easily/quickly do other things. Thus PC Image Editor 4 is very clean and efficient pgm for replacing MSFT's paint.
