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.

"Great program similar to Photoshop on a smaller scale."

September 07, 2012  |  By rf2ooo

 |  Version: Photo Pos Pro 1.88

Pros

Photo Pos Pro has many of the features you'd find in other image editing software but takes up a lot less space and less resources which is perfect for laptops and computers with minimal RAM memory. The interface is pretty easy to use once you get used to as the effects are all mostly buttons on the toolbar which eliminate the massive amount of drop-down lists of effects commonly associated with other software.

Cons

Compared to other software, Photo Pos Pro has slightly less features and options which is a minor detail.

Summary

It's a great program that's perfect if you want software with a moderate amount of features but are limited by space requirements or computer resources. :)

"SECOND INSTANCE - CONTAINS MALWARE - DO NOT DOWNLOAD"

August 26, 2012  |  By CnetSucksBad

 |  Version: Photo Pos Pro 1.88

Pros

EARLIER, NON-INFECTED VERSIONS ARE GREAT.

Cons

The file mibhoh.dll is INSTALLED AND ENCRYPTED BY THE MALWARE TROJAN.TRCUR.C!.INF TO HIDE SO THAT POWER ERASER IS THE ONLY MEANS TO REMOVE IT AND THAT REQUIRES REMOVAL OF ALL OF PHOTO POS PRO 1.88.

CNET FAILS AGAIN TO RESEARCH AND PROVIDE REASONABLE PROTECTION FOR IT'S MEMBERS AND USERS.

FAIL!! FAIL!!

Summary

SEE CONS: Installs TROJAN.TRACUR.C!.inf a serious threat to your privacy and personal info.

"Works good until working with layers - then you swear!"

August 20, 2012  |  By egman69

 |  Version: Photo Pos Pro 1.88

Pros

Free. A lot stronger than other free editors in enhancing pics

Cons

Bad layered image support. Difficult to switch around without touching other layers. Best to do all the work on the image you want to layer before copy pasting over your layered work. Undo is your friend.

"A must have for any serious photo editing job."

August 09, 2012  |  By spine_tingler

 |  Version: Photo Pos Pro 1.88

Pros

Really easy to use. No learning curve. If you have worked with any photo edit for more than a month you will not have any problems with this program. There are a ton of features and additional content for some truly astonishing editing tasks.

Cons

Does not save .gif files.

"Installed unwanted 3rd party software"

August 09, 2012  |  By IHateAddOnSpam

 |  Version: Photo Pos Pro 1.88

Pros

Didn't get that far

Cons

Spam installations

Summary

A couple of minutes after launching the app, I got popups for system analyzer tools. Also, I discovered that the installation had hijacked my Chrome and Explorer, changing my default search engines to Babylon and resetting my home page. Very uncool.
