Editors' Review

+

PC Image Editor offers relatively powerful photo editing capabilities in a free package. Although it doesn't match professional photo-editing programs, it does allow you to make some basic image corrections.

Pros

Basic interface: The main menu across the top of the screen features very large, easy to understand icons.

Right-hand slider controls: The actual adjustments on the images takes place via the control panel on the right-hand side of the screen. This is where you can find familiar photo qualities such as "hue," which can then be adjusted by just moving a fader from right to left.

Cons

Lack of presets: It would have been nice to see some more beginner-friendly features such as filters or presets built in or at least the ability to save your own presets.

Bottom Line

For a free program, this software does give you considerable photo editing power.

Pros

It's garbage.... don't waste your time with this.

Cons

Warning - Installs 3rd party .NET and other junk without your permission!

Unsolicited software and utilities of *any* kind are totally unacceptable.

I had to use task manager repeatedly to kill the processes.

"Simple, but still limited and buggy"

March 08, 2013  |  By YOOPITS

2013-03-08 14:37:30  |  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

2012-07-13 22:14:12  |  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

2011-07-04 10:51:39  |  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

2011-04-11 03:20:52  |  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.
