PhotoPerfect

CNET Editors' review

PhotoPerfect claims it is a digital photo editor's dream come true. With a plethora of options and tools to dial in your pictures, this is certainly an impressive weapon. However, its features might overwhelm novices.

This program presents itself much like other photo editing software. Anyone who has tinkered with Photoshop or comparable programs will recognize the layout of command buttons along the top and left side of the picture. Where PhotoPerfect differs from the others is that it offers fewer opportunities to physically alter the photo. It does, however, offer plenty of innovative ways to tweak a shot to get it perfect. Many of the tools available to users include traditional masks, filters, color adjustments, and the like. PhotoPerfect also offers a histogram, options for white balancing, color balancing, color saturation, distortion, and more. The most impressive was Perfectly Clear, a filter that quickly and easily adjusts vibrancy, sharpness, exposure limit, and contrast for studio-quality shots.

We were pleased with this 14-day trial's options and the ease with which they could be adjusted, since most popped up in separate screens and had sliding bars to make changes. This program will be a gem for users who do a lot of professional photo manipulation, but the options and what they specifically do to help pictures will be over the heads of many novice users. We recommend this download only for those with a serious composition background.

    "Versatile, top-quality and fast image editor"

    May 2, 2011  |   By smonrow45

    Version: PhotoPerfect 3.20 build 19

    Pros

    Offers a lot of great features for both beginners and advanced users. Great and fast basic editing available. The 1-click optimizations work like a charm. Also numerous advanced features to squeeze out the best of one's images. Great support&updates.

    Cons

    User interface is - although great for my taste (and age ;-) - not up to date

    Summary

    I think it is a love-or-hate due the GUI. In my case I love this tool. If you take your time to work through it, I'm pretty sure you will be positively surprised and overwhelmed by the sheer amount of easy-to-use features. The publisher offers 3 versions, which differ in the amount of extensions bundled. These extensions are mostly image optimization extensions. They work astonishing very well. But if you know a little, how to edit images, their cheapest basic version is IMO more than sufficient, as it already offers all needed bells and whistles. Besides it is pretty affordable and worth every dim/penny/yen... what so ever ;-)
