Editors' Review

+

The publisher's description of PhoXo says that it can be "treated as a mini Photoshop." This made us laugh, because the last time we checked, Photoshop didn't include an assortment of emoticons and other clip art. But we gave PhoXo a chance and found that we actually liked it quite a bit. It contains the basic image-editing tools that the non-professional user would expect, with a few fun (and goofy) extras that make it appropriate for younger users, too.

The program's interface is well organized and intuitive, with menus across the top and a toolbar down the left side. There are controls for brightness, contrast, and saturation, options to blur and sharpen, and a red-eye-reduction tool. A clone tool and an eraser let users perform basic image correction. Users can also add text, stamps, and clip art to images, and they can draw on images freehand using a pen or paintbrush tool. An effects menu includes options to distort images, add light-related effects, or transform the image into another artistic style. We liked it that PhoXo supports the use of layers; this makes it easy for users to experiment with the program's various features without making irreversible changes to their images. A surprisingly thorough online Help file provides detailed instructions for all of PhoXo's features and includes plenty of screenshots. Overall, we were pleasantly surprised by PhoXo; it's easy to use and has plenty of features, both useful and silly. It's a good choice for anyone who's just getting started with image editing or for more experienced users who don't require the advanced features of programs like Photoshop.

PhoXo installs a desktop icon without asking but uninstalls cleanly. We recommend this program to all users.

"3 1/2 stars. Good program but not for novices"

September 28, 2013  |  By CarlM89

 |  Version: PhoXo 8.1

Pros

It is free and works completely. Easy to download. Seems to have just about everything I hear photo shop has.

Cons

Not easy to figure out how to use. Editing layers is not simple and re-sizing images is difficult. You will invariably use the undo icon a lot. I still have not been able to set an image as a background for example and size other images to look appropriate over it.

Summary

Still a good program, newbies like myself have to work at it.

"Very Nice Program"

February 19, 2013  |  By safedownload

 |  Version: PhoXo 8.0

Pros

This is Free! WOW This is just the best home Photo edit you can get for Family/home editing. Most programs like Adobe Elements and even the free ones are so busy looking and hard to learn this one kids mom and dad can pick this up in no time.
This is one program to have for quick and fun editing.Little icons to drop in a photo,re-size,fix flaws with clone tool and color correction all the main tools you need for Family/home editing.

Cons

Not a con but it ain't Photoshop cs6 or Elements11 and Coral and all the others that will cost you 50.00 to 600.00 and up. If you need this kind of powerhouse then it wont work for you.

Summary

Oh it is FREE at least now.
Easy to use.
Oh and did I say FREE....ya got to try it for that price
I have not received any spy or upgrade ads junk so its
clean for installs.
