Photo Pos Pro

CNET Editors' review

Photo Pos Pro is a software program for editing and correcting digital images. It is intended both for professionals and for amateur photographers.

Overall, this program doesn't necessarily have enough features to qualify as a must-have for professional photographers or photo editors. While it does offer a good list of special effects, many of them probably wouldn't be used on professional photos. The Frames feature, for example, has very simple frames. They aren't really "classic" as the program suggests. Features like Red Eye Reduction, Sharpen Image and Brightness/Contrast, however, are useful and perform well. We did notice that some of the special effects didn't look the same on the preview and the actual image, which was another negative aspect.

On Startup, we liked the fact that it showed tips, which you can see on every Startup. Those were very helpful in explaining some of the lesser-known features and showing the potential of this software. Our opinion that this program should only be used for simple editing and special effects, however, still stands. A professional photographer wouldn't really like this.

The download process took longer than most other downloads since it was a larger file. Between the download time and installation time, it probably took about 8 to 10 minutes, and we couldn't minimize the download page for part of that time, which was not the greatest installation experience.

    "variable performance"

    July 31, 2010  |   By kelsci

    Version: Photo Pos Pro 1.81

    Pros

    The only thing I really tested was to treat some pics taken by somebody that looked somewhat washed out. The contrast level gave these pics new life

    Cons

    The program will size down a pic but it will not place the sized down pic next to the originally sized one. Windows Photo Gallery does do this. Instead this program replaces the original pic with the sized down one

    Summary

    I like the contrast adjust; dislike the size down feature.

    "I like it!"

    July 5, 2010  |   By Tattoosadie

    Version: Photo Pos Pro 1.81

    Pros

    Downloads easily, works great with my scanner and camera. Had no problems with it at all. Starts quickly, has good editing tools and helpful tutorials. From reading some of the bad reviews, my guess is that the program works best for XP users.

    Cons

    So far I haven't found any except for Cnet's warning that during installation you should take care not to associate all image types with the program. However, if you do, it can easily be changed through Windows folder options.

    "Very good program for being free"

    July 4, 2010  |   By ravfour22

    Version: Photo Pos Pro 1.81

    Pros

    I like the simple user interface, will do anything the more expensive programs will do, would not recommend for beginners, unless you have time to learn all the functions.

    Cons

    As far as i can see the only cons are the morons thinking vista is a good operating system, stick with xp-pro and you will have not problems.

    "I downloaded it and it wouldn't even load"

    July 3, 2010  |   By RandyOllila

    Version: Photo Pos Pro 1.81

    Pros

    I have no positive opinion of this product

    Cons

    It refused to work

    Summary

    My experience with the product is totally negative. I spent too much time downloading to have it not even start up. I received incomprehensible error messages with no way to rectify the situation. My computer is less than 3 months old, running Win7x64 bit, dual core with plenty of ram. The bugs are in the software, not my system, as this problem has never repeated itself with any other download.

    "VERY DISAPPOINTED IN THIS PROGRAM :-("

    July 3, 2010  |   By katkat1219

    Version: Photo Pos Pro 1.81

    Pros

    If it functioned with my Vista 64 bit, it might be wonderful....

    Cons

    BUT--since it does not function with my Vista 64 bit, it constantly freezes up and has never functioned properly. I have contacted their "tech support" half a dozen times and they finally gave up trying to help me.

    Summary

    I am uninstalling this crummy program immediately because, despite many tries to make it work properly, most of the features simply will not function with my computer, even when I log in as "administrator." To say I am horribly disappointed is an incredible understatement.

    "Mimics photoshop quite well for the occasional user"

    June 28, 2010  |   By josedvallarino

    Version: Photo Pos Pro 1.81

    Pros

    Very simple to use and quite versatile.

    Cons

    I would change the name only, but for a free program is excellent.

    Summary

    I had trouble using my photoshop with windows 7. I downloaded this program as an stanby, however I was surprised at is versatility and ease of use. Being free is a plus plus. Thanks.
