Editors' Review

What's the best-kept secret of highly productive people? Elves. Santa has them. Keebler has them. If you're a home photographer, you can too. The versatile, hardworking PhotoElf combines the functions of an image editor and a photo-print program. The print module can rotate, manage, rename, zoom, slide, or find images. The image editor includes photo effects, red-eye correction, advanced cropping, and tools for adding shapes and text. You can adjust the image depth to anything from 8-bit grayscale to 24-bit color. The crop function is particularly clever. Instead of making you select part of the image to crop, it generates a selection area you can adjust manually or with buttons. The program imports images from scanners, and the new version adds useful batch-processing features. The interface is nothing to get excited about, but it's straightforward enough. Given its good usability and capable feature set, we think PhotoElf can definitely lighten the workload of home photographers.

"I bought it the same day I tried it out!"

February 19, 2012  |  By sage_donnap

 |  Version: PhotoElf 4.1.12

Pros

The ability to completely edit the pic in the printing screen without changing the original.
A great descreening tool.
Very versatile editing.
Has custom picture sizing for unusual size picture frames.
Easy to understand and very informative "tiny tip" and help screens.
Works great for the yellow reflective problem in animal's eyes.

Cons

The autofix function doesn't work very well
Could have a better selection of masks, even after downloading extras.

Summary

This program has everything I've been looking for in photo editing and printing in an easy to use program. Big programs like Corel and Adobe are way too much for me - I don't need all of the features and high end tech stuff. As a genealogist, I scan old pictures, documents and newspaper clippings. This program cleans them up very nicely. It does a great job on digital camera pictures as well. I can create any size picture I want for printing as well as edit the picture without changing the original. The help screens and "tiny tips" are written in plain speak and explain the tech stuff in an easy to understand format.
A big plus for me is that it's easy to remove the yellow reflective eye problem in animals. With most programs if it's not red-eye it doesn't work.
Well worth $20!!!
