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.

"a very average program"

August 07, 2011  |  By vmars316

 |  Version: Photo Pos Pro 1.86

Pros

its freeware (but with stealth install of "Roxio Easy Media Creator 10 LJ")

Cons

I hate it when these so called free programs install extra programs without an option to not install extra pgms.
Photo pos pro: Stealthfully installs "Roxio Easy Media Creator 10 LJ". Boo Hiss!

Summary

I hate it when these so called free programs install extra programs without an option to not install extra pgms.

"Been looking for software this good for a long time!"

August 03, 2011  |  By ronbo124

 |  Version: Photo Pos Pro 1.86

Pros

I have used a lot of image manipulation, graphics, and photo editing software over the years, even paying big bucks for features I never used, but the fact that this is free and works great deserves a 5 star rating.

Cons

None that I have found yet.

Summary

Easy to use, just remember the F2 key to see all the features of the various tools. Has an excellent users guide in the classic windows style.

"Really well documented, easy to use"

July 19, 2011  |  By Crochetwoman

 |  Version: Photo Pos Pro 1.86

Pros

This software is easy to use right away, with excellent help files and documentation. What's really great is not having to go online to access help files.

Cons

I haven't run into any just yet, still playing around. Perhaps the only draw back is learning all of the menus and how this particular software is organized, pretty standard for learning a new software.

Summary

If you're looking for basic photo adjustments and making things like banners and buttons for websites. It's perfect. It's free, and better than many commercial softwares I have purchased over the years. No, it's not an Adobe product, but most of us don't need those either.

"Intrusive pos."

July 19, 2011  |  By Starshaker

 |  Version: Photo Pos Pro 1.86

Pros

It works kind of.

Cons

Tries to install browser bars. Changes your browser homepage. Intrusions like this are insulting in the least. Buy something off the shelf. It's safer.

Summary

Buy a product instead of using freeware that messes with your computer settings to the extent this does.
