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.

"It works....."

January 10, 2012  |  By keia27

 |  Version: Photo Pos Pro 1.87

Pros

It did what I need it to do and I didn't have a problem with using the software.

Cons

None so far.

Summary

Works great. It is a little more for the expert photo developers but I will figure out how to work all the items that comes with the software. I like it. :)

"Probably I'll skip on this one"

May 27, 2012  |  By LongHorn204

 |  Version: Photo Pos Pro 1.87

Pros

Functionality seems powerful

Cons

Quality of resulting images is questionable; unstable.

Summary

First time after installation didn't start on my Win 7 system, shuts down with error message after flash screen. After I reinstalled it, started working, but after I opened about 10 images it gave me "not enough memory" message (I have 6Gb, and this is Win32 program, it cannot take more than 4Gb. It's not memory, it's design). Opening 1 picture at a time works OK.
When I took a picture from my camera with size of about 4.5 Mb and enhanced light and contrast, it created .jpg of about 1.5 Mb, 3 times less than original size. Good for display, but not for print, except small size. And my Adobe Photoshop Elements does better job in most cases.

"No, I Don't want the web toolbar you forced upon me"

May 26, 2012  |  By 7thPrime

 |  Version: Photo Pos Pro 1.87

Pros

easy to use for novice. Tips feature that can be deactivated

Cons

web toolbar seems obligatory. Too many other pop-up features that get in the way more than they help. One whole tab dedicated to other free stuff they want you to get. I uninstalled the next day and was informed that some things could not be removed. Now i'm stuck with spyware or something else i don't want and don't know how to get rid of.

Summary

This seems far more interested in advertising for their other 'free' products, that probably also include similar unwanted hidden features that are left behind on the uninstall.

"WORSE THAN USELESS"

March 28, 2012  |  By TomNightingale

 |  Version: Photo Pos Pro 1.87

Pros

Nothing.It didn't run.

Cons

Installed, ran and there was a "splash" screen that could not be closed. Unable to use the program menus, the only things that would respond were the links in the "splash" asking for money...for software that I couldn't use.

It took about 6 attempts with ADD/REMOVE to get rid of it...even then some components were not removed.

Summary

Didn't work. Couldn't fully remove. AS BAD AS IT CAN GET.

"I just got this. Looks great, but not sure yet."

March 26, 2012  |  By gilfandn1

 |  Version: Photo Pos Pro 1.87

Pros

Lots of controls and capabilities. Tutorials are very good.

Cons

Not sure, but I would like to load photos on DVDs; that would be cool.

Summary

I really don't have much to say yet. I am a Florida Gator EE, retired, and have been playing with really good computers since 1959. Two you have heard of: Apollo and Viking.

"_un_wieldy"

March 24, 2012  |  By remyx_king

 |  Version: Photo Pos Pro 1.87

Pros

it appears to be fairly powerful if you can get past the huge learning curve, the memory suck and the unwieldy nature of the hotkeys and command structure. tutorials seem helpful, i think they acually are helpful.

Cons

your changes aren't protected. i went to hit 'undo' and it instead opened another button which sent me to some kind of 'browse directory' crap, and when i went to back out of it, it asked if i wanted to save the file or not, no option to 'cancel' and back out of the unsolicited operation. i lost a good bit of work when i had to choose one of these inadequate options. its a program which forces you to be always hitting 'save' or 'undo' with every action, but the hotkeys are sluggish and obtuse so you wind up having to stop and click around abunch just to do that.

Summary

needs more streamlined paths to achieve certain editing objectives. also protect work more, no sending to 'browse directory' (closing off any other work you wanted to do, basically a 'close' command) when i wnated to use undo. from there its too confusing, easy to hit 'save' when the only 2 options were save and not save.

"Less is More"

March 19, 2012  |  By MrsWLeach

 |  Version: Photo Pos Pro 1.87

Pros

For the ONLY pro, I can say that it LOOKS good.

Cons

This site is too difficult to use. I thought I would trade up from Photoscape, but I'm sticking with it, as it's a lot easier to figure out when I want to create over-laps, etc. I tried to do the same this on Photo Pos Pros and ended up frustrated .

Summary

There is a reason it's called Pos PROS, because you REALLY need to know your photo technology to use this page. A novice, (like myself) would be hopelessly out-manuvered!
