PhotoPerfect Express

CNET Editors' review

Photo editing can be a long and painful process, especially for people inexperienced with the complex software and processes involved. PhotoPerfect Express provides users with the ability to make quick changes to their images without a lot of hassle.

This free program has an incredibly simple interface. Using traditional file search methods for selecting a picture, your images quickly dominate the screen. Along the top are a few options for editing, saving, and making batches. Along the right-hand side are five different thumbnails of the main photo. Clicking on each thumbnail shows how PhotoPerfect applies a different finish to your photo and how that particular finish adjusts the color, clarity, sharpness, and contrast of each. In addition, there is a slider atop each picture allows you to compare the image before optimization to what it looks like after. Each photo that we put through the ringer was successfully edited to our liking.

All in all, PhotoPerfect has a very unique way of improving photos. Experienced photo editors might want more bells and whistles than what this program has to offer. However, if you are new to photo editing, or don't have the interest in learning the complex procedures, this is a great download to provide quick and simple photo adjustments.

    "BEWARE RIPOFF!"

    May 7, 2013  |   By dontwanna

    Version: PhotoPerfect Express 1.0 build 84

    Pros

    Easy to use.

    Cons

    2 out of the 5 modifiers leave a watermark if you don't buy the "license" for each one of them. Both would cost $50 for this piece of "freeware".

    The full version is readily available, if you want to spend the money on a program that's almost as expensive as Adobe Photoshop, without the power.

    I was just looking for a little fun app, not a license to steal. This program is not even a deal for free.

    Summary

    RIPOFF!

    Updated on Nov 28, 2013

    You get 3 effects. They work OK, and are one click, so free is worth it.
