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.

"I love it!!!!"

May 16, 2011  |  By Mysticmisha

 |  Version: Photo Pos Pro 1.84

Pros

Unlike Gimp, the instructions are much more easier to understand. I know I have a long way to go but I think we will do beautiful things together! Thank goodness for the undo button!

Cons

So much to learn! So many mistakes to make!

Summary

It's great if you want to stay up all night, mesmerized by all the possibilities offered and at the same time pulling your hair out trying to learn how to do it!

"Works AWESOME"

May 08, 2011  |  By Obnoxious_1

 |  Version: Photo Pos Pro 1.84

Pros

Compact, easy & has a few good features

Cons

Wish you could add the Eye candy Plugins

Summary

Program works great & for free, Hard to beat.
Does not have malware as someone mentioned, & if you couldn't get it to work, your not smart enough to be using a computer anyway.
Very easy to use & set up, Has some nice features, wish it had more plugins.

"Very comprehensive edting program"

May 08, 2011  |  By dedgson

Pros

I really like the capability of having several selections of templates for printing from.

A little complicated but that is likely because I haven't taken the time to learn it all properly.

I would highly recommend it.

"Watch out for this software! Contains malware!"

May 08, 2011  |  By hilarycable

 |  Version: Photo Pos Pro 1.84

Pros

I didn't even open it to find out after it infected my computer with malware.

Cons

Photo Pos Pro hijacked my browsers' search selections and changed them to Bing. I ran NOD32 to see if my computer was infected and, yes, it was.

Summary

Stay away from Photo Pos Pro. It contains malware to help offset the cost of people not being willing to pay for the product. That will cost you lots more in the long run than going out and buying a decent photo editor that suits your needs. Listen to your anti-virus: you're going to get what you pay for here.

"not usable"

May 02, 2011  |  By dcs33ad

 |  Version: Photo Pos Pro 1.84

Pros

free; buttons are similar to those in other photo editing programs.

Cons

Undo button rarely worked; after 2 or 3 edits the photo disappeared from the screen, leaving only a blank layer; "Free upgrade" offer led to an advertising screen; had to finish uninstallation manually, etc.....

Summary

Not worth the time to download, seriously.
