Editors' review

Photo Pos Pro gives you access to a wide variety of tools that you can use to edit images, add effects, or convert them to different formats. This program delivers everything you'd expect from a photo editing suite, and it comes with a convenient Help file to get you acquainted with its features.

Pros

Tips with links: The first time you open the app, you'll be greeted by a pop-up window containing Tips on how to use various features of the app. You can browse through them, and if you find something you'd like to know more about, just follow the link provided to view step-by-step instructions online. There is also a checkbox to use if you want the tips to appear every time you open the app, and they are accessible from the Help menu as well.

Web tools: While this app is perfectly capable of performing routine photo editing tasks, it's also able to convert images, so they can be used as Web page backgrounds. And you can follow some of the step-by-step tips mentioned earlier to make all kinds of buttons for your Web sites, as well.

Cons

Busy interface: This app can do a lot, and most of the tools you'll use most are readily accessible from the main interface window. But that means there's a lot on the main interface, and it takes a little while to find your way around and figure out what everything is.

Bottom Line

This is a powerful and useful app with all kinds of features that users of all skill levels may find worthwhile. There is limited technical support available with the free version of the program, but you can purchase a Premium subscription for $9.90 for one license. The more licenses you buy, the cheaper they are, and these paid licenses offer some nice extra features, as well, including multiple templates and support.

    "Very Powerful Editor"

    June 19, 2014   |   By spartan100

    Version: Photo Pos Pro 1.89.9

    Pros

    I been used this one for a long time, once learning to control it the editor is very powerful

    Cons

    The script and batch tool which I'm using a lot does a lot of stuff but can not perform all the app functions in a batch. Only some of the popular functions can be done in a batch (for instance batch resize can be done but not a batch crop)

    Summary

    Overall a powerful application and free

    "hijacked browser"

    May 15, 2014   |   By whoknows3000

    Version: Photo Pos Pro 1.89.8

    Pros

    Works well.
    Has lots of features you would expect.

    Cons

    Hi jacked my browser start page - even after declining the bogus few 'accept' pages. Fixed browser then every new tab is trovi.com search engine.
    Also, browsers became very very slow. Had to go into registry edit to remove trovi.

    Summary

    Only download if you don't mind having your homepage changed

    "MALWARE ALERT!!!"

    March 22, 2014   |   By gudgen3

    Version: Photo Pos Pro 1.89.7

    Pros

    None anymore

    Cons

    Do not download!! Contains malware that is next to impossible to get rid of!!!

    Summary

    I downloaded this program a few years ago and it was fine, I did a clean install on my HD and decided to d/l this again & this time it loaded malware called the conduit toolbar! Even though i did not want to install the toolbar and set my homepage to conduit, this crap got into my system & bombarded me with pop-ups and I couldn't get clean it all out so I had to do another clean install, thanks alot CNET and I won't be using you're site anymore! Personally I don't think they test these programs anymore and whoever creates these is paying them off to look the other way at virus and malware infested programs!

    Version: Photo Pos Pro 1.89.7

    Pros

    It appears to be great photo editing software.

    "does what it says"

    March 13, 2014   |   By kondor17

    Version: Photo Pos Pro 1.89.7

    Pros

    With Photos Pos Pro you can easily make collages, photo editing, and it has some nice thumbnails like delete/clone. It's not properly an "easy program", but the most of this category (editing, conversion, etc) are even much more difficult. Probably you need a lot of ram and a good cpu; I've 16 GB and an Intel quadcore and everything works fast and smooth. ANy issue or malware also has been found and to avoid and get additional programs, you have only to select "advanced" installation and not only click ok on every Windows it appears.

    Cons

    Layout and inst wizard are pretty old, tutorial and worksheet could be much better, but people it's free and it does absolutely what it promises.

    Summary

    Learning curve and a good RAM are needed. Take your time and enjoy.

    Updated on Mar 23, 2014

    Correction: it just worked a couple of days. I was so happy that I donated 10 USD and then crashed and had to uninstall it. I wrote an Email last thursday, but any answer or solution atm.

    "THIS COULD BE SO MUCH BETTER!!"

    February 11, 2014   |   By Raakil699

    Version: Photo Pos Pro 1.89.7

    Pros

    Excellent, quick and easy for web-based graphics.. if you are a graphic saavy looking for something that will let u compose very easy graphics for your FB or twitter this is it..

    Cons

    DON"T TRY TO USE THIS FOR DESKTOP PUBLISHING.. you will only spend alot of time on a project that will push the limits of software and it will C-R-A-S-H -- and your file will DISAPPEAR or it will come back and be partly corrupted.. Also these is something FUNKY with the layers as an pic u first place locked down as the background and cannot be moved or edited.. same with the crop function.. you must crop and then save the file to lock the crop.. otherwise when u copy and paste -- it will paste the entire pic..

    Summary

    This would be a great software but doing any project above 5 X 7 print size your playing with losing your project and alot of time..

    guys FIX THIS..

    for those with the malware issue.. PAY ATTENTION when u install don't just click YES on everythingu see.. there is CLEARLY A DECLINE BUTTON ON ALL OF THE SOFTWARE U DO NOT WANT!!!!

    "Love/Hate relationship"

    January 10, 2014   |   By 4xCharmed

    Version: Photo Pos Pro 1.89.6

    Pros

    It's self explanatory and easy to figure out of you've had no formal training

    Cons

    installs adware and toolbars on your computer
    makes system hang and needs to be rebooted
    uses up a lot of memory. i'll often get an "out of memory" pop up

    Summary

    I've been using this for years, so I'm sort of familiar with it, although I know it can do 1000 more things than I've ever tried. However, when you install it, it installs all kinds of adware and toolbars, so you'll have to go back and uninstall all of them.
    My biggest complaint is that it crashes and makes my computer hang if I attempt to open more than 2 images (for digital scrapbooking) or if I try creating a mask on one image and try to paste it into another image. It's done that on all 3 laptops I have, so I can only really use it for adding text to an image, which is frustrating. I downloaded GIMP.. which doesn't freeze up, it's just hard to learn

    "Encountered a problems from the very start!"

    November 20, 2013   |   By blusky4u

    Version: Photo Pos Pro 1.89.5

    Pros

    From the looks of things once the download finished downloading I liked all of the available filters and accessories available to me for re-working my images.

    Cons

    From the moment I clicked on "Download" my Norton picked up and Alerted me to a Threat! The threat that was identified was dealslider1029.exe) Suspicious.Cloud.9
    Thanks to Norton and they're great system protection Norton Immediately removed this threat and my system is still safe and secure. Once this threat was removed and this program was finishing its installation my Norton detects another threat! This time its the Threat Adware.DealPly
    Before this program even loaded into my problem free system I am now forced to stop everything I'm currently doing and run all of my security programs for any and all unwanted threats and or viruses. Now I am wondering about this program and its integrity? This user is disappointed from the get go...

    Summary

    From the first moment I clicked on Download my Norton picked up and Alerted me to a Threat! The threat that was identified was - dealslider1029.exe) Suspicious.Cloud.9
    Thank you Norton! Norton immediately removed this threat.
    (I should have right there at that moment aborted this dowload!) This threat was removed and just as this program finishes installing on my system my Norton now picks up on and alerts me to a second threat! This time its the threat - Adware.DealPly I am now forced to stop everything I'm currently doing and run all of my systems security for any unwanted threats and/or viruses.
    I now have to decide if I'm going to delete Photo Pos Pro or keep it on my system? It now all depends upon what my Norton and security picks up on once I've re-scanned my entire computer system. I have yet to scan my entire system but, I would advise anyone that's thinking of downloading this program to seriously think about running this. 2 issues right from the very start. Is this a sign on what's yet to come once I start using this program?

    Updated on Nov 20, 2013

    I don't know if its worth running if 2 security issues were detected before the program was finished downloading. Is this a sign of whats to come?
