Editors' Review

PhotoScape X for Mac is a photo viewing and editing tool for Mac that provides many of the same tools as iPhoto, but in a separate interface that was often faster in our tests than the native app. While not as feature rich or as integrated with OS X as Apple's native photo viewer, PhotoScape X offers a suite of tools that makes photo viewing much easier.

Installation of PhotoScape X took only a few moments and the app loaded immediately. After setting the theme and switching to the photo viewer, the app was able to load all of the images on our test computer in just under three seconds, scanning the entire hard drive and pulling more than 800 photos into a single view, quickly. Clicking on any of these images, we could immediately apply edits and then save the file back to the hard drive in the same location or separately. The interface here is very much like a file viewer, so it's not pretty, but it's very functional and the themes add a bit of flavor to what would be a bland app, otherwise. The performance here is fantastic, though, and while additional features like social integration are missing, the app is a very solid replacement for your native photo viewing app.

PhotoScape X is a free app that works very well to replace iPhoto or any other photo viewing apps you are currently using. It's fast, responsive, and has added tools like GIF creation that help it stand out against the competition; and with no upgrade fee needed down the line, it's a very good app that could make itself at home on any newer Macs.

I'm a fan of PhotoScape for PC. Since I have Mac pro, I've patiently waiting for a Mac version. After install the very first version of PhotoScape for Mac, I just LOVE it! Stunning interface and great animation. Fast to view photo and easy to edit. Although the edit tools are not rich as PC version, it is a good start. I've removed all my other image viewer and editor tools.

"Unable to download PhotoscapeX after several tries."

October 25, 2013  |  By ashitsarkar

2013-10-25 06:12:34  |  By ashitsarkar

 |  Version: PhotoScape X 1.0

Pros

Unable to comment

Cons

After clicking on DOWNLOAD button, the TechTracker Activity screen comes - very confusing! No action is visible despite waiting. The earlier CNet Download system was easy and understandable.

I am using an iMac with 10.6.8 Snow Leopard OS - trying to download MavericksX but even after 2 hours it continues to show "Downloading" with no other indication of remaining time or balance to load being shown. I have paused it to download PhotoscapeX - but no success.

Summary

Would be happy to get help or advice at:

Many Thanks...
