Photo Cutter

CNET Editors' review

Photo Cutter provides users with one of the fastest cropping tools we have ever tested. Simple commands and lightning-fast results make this a program that users of all levels can appreciate.

The program's interface is an excellent single-screen layout that users will understand almost instantly. All the elements are clearly labeled and intuitive to operate. An online Help file gives a brief instructional rundown for those needing a little guidance. Cutting a picture is a simple process that should only take a few seconds. Users select the file folder and photo they'd like to begin with using the onscreen file tree. Next they simply click and drag a box around the photo to make a crop. Finally, users select the output destination and the file type and the job is converted instantly. The new file is a clear and well-cropped shot. The program's finest feature is a small check box that allows users to instantly preview their work. As soon as the user creates the crop box, the preview image comes up on the screen, allowing users to instantly fix mistakes.

With simple controls and great results, this freeware program should appeal to those who need to make fast adjustments to their pictures.

    October 7, 2009  |   By _Biff

    Version: Photo Cutter 1.0

    Pros

    - If you like your computer to hang, you will like this program
    - If you like spyware/malware, you will like this program
    - If you have nothing better to do but fix your broken OS, download this

    Cons

    I got conned into downloading it after the editors gave it 5 1/2 stars ????? are you Kidding me editors ??

    Summary

    Garbage software, don't download it. It hung my OS and required a rollback. It did load ONCE and doesn't do much that 150 other better imaging softwares out there do... do yourself a favor and by pass this.!

    "Disappointed in the way this program was Implemented..."

    August 5, 2009  |   By yankee07mvp

    Version: Photo Cutter 1.0

    Pros

    Unknown, because once it advised me, (during the install), that it was going to be monitor my personal Internet activity, I immediately uninstalled it. (Don't recall any Cnet advisory about this fact before downloading it to try it).

    Cons

    Internet based program - Ugh! (Enough said right there). This program will failure for that very fact alone, but during it's install they state that they are going to monitor your Internet activity in exchange for the use of their"free" program..!

    Summary

    I'd rather download crippled shareware products, (and try them out BEFORE I buy them or use full versions of them..), before using using any product that wants to monitor my personal Internet usage 'in exchange for' using their program via the Internet, (which, by-the-way, is scary enough already out there..!)

    "Installation was stopped by my antispyware programs"

    July 28, 2009  |   By be3sun

    Version: Photo Cutter 1.0

    Pros

    Couldn't tell.

    Cons

    I agree with other reviewers that the idea of combining a supposedly useful program with malware is totally detestable.

    Summary

    I never succeeded to install the program since the installation was stopped by my antispyware programs.

    "I have decided to hold back downloading this software"

    July 22, 2009  |   By Victorloo

    Version: Photo Cutter 1.0

    Pros

    Until the editor review this software again about the users claim. I won't download a program that may compromise my details.

    Cons

    I will not download and test or use it until I know it won't be a treat to my personal security.

    Summary

    We have here two extremely opposing comments from the CNet's editor and the users.Editor's had highly recommended the software whilst the users unanimous advice is to stay away. I stop my download immediately as I too do not wish my personal data be collected for possible unauthorized usage. The editor's position a respectable one, lots of net surfers rely heavily on the editors' expertize advice. So I think the editor should take a minute out of his/her heavy schedule to verify the users' claim and remove the spy-ware or at least qualify your own comment, 4 1/2 stars is a very high rating, right?.

    "Too Limited to Bother With"

    July 22, 2009  |   By Jinggo78

    Version: Photo Cutter 1.0

    Pros

    It's easy to understand. Nobody using this will need any help.

    Cons

    Too simple.
    Limited to the most basic of image file types to save your picture.
    It only does one thing and not very well

    Summary

    The cropping tool could be a lot better. For one you are unable to change the size of the box once you make it. It crops right away. There are no handles to adjust what you've done. If you don't like it you have to do it over again. There are no features other than making a box to crop. I would like a tool that does what the Photoshop crop tool does only without having to load (or even own a version of) Photoshop. This program is basically too limited and simple to bother with. I uninstalled it right away.
    *IMPORTANT NOTE*
    Oh yeah and if you don't pay attention at the beginning of the install it tries to install a program that monitors your internet usage. You can skip it but like I said you have to be paying attention.

    "Safe and works well"

    July 21, 2009  |   By Software_Techie

    Version: Photo Cutter 1.0

    Pros

    Does what it says

    Cons

    None. Ofcourse can be improved

    Summary

    Hello, I am the author. This product is completely safe. It just offers an optional product during installation, if you do not wish to install the optional product, you can simply decline its terms and move ahead in the setup. This will install only and only Photo Cutter. The flagging by few antivirus is just a false positive.

    It does what it says and the people already using it are happy. Even if you like it too please try to comment here. Thanks.
