Editors' Review

+

PhotoScape provides a full suite of tools that you can use for editing and enhancing your photos to create the perfect memories. Then, put them together into a slideshow to enjoy with friends.

Pros

Tons of features: No matter what photo editing program you're used to, you'll find the tools you're looking for in this app. Crop your photos with straight or circular borders, apply multiple filters, and even edit your photos in batches to save time. And when you're ready, you can string them together into animated GIFs with customized transition effects.

Effects preview: To ensure that you're satisfied with the effects you choose for each photo, this program lets you preview each change before you make it. And because each effect, itself, is adjustable, you can make all of the adjustments you want on a sliding scale in the preview window before you finalize the changes on the photo, itself.

Cons

Redundant interface: The home screen for PhotoScape features icons for various tools arranged in a circle on one side, with links to tutorials and other special pages on the other. But most of the tools found on the home screen can also be accessed through the tabs at the top of the interface. While this doesn't prevent you from accessing all of the features you want, it can be a bit confusing at first, and is redundant at the very least.

Bottom Line

PhotoScape is a convenient and versatile photo editing program. It delivers on all promised features, works smoothly, and costs nothing. So if you're looking for a new photo app, this is a good one to take for a test drive.

"Fantastic! PS is free here: fwrd.pw/CSPS"

March 20, 2015  |  By desneg

 |  Version: PhotoScape 3.7

Pros

Like the simplicity of this software which allows you to do the job easily. It is also light weight and will not use much memory.

Cons

Nothing so far but to do layered image editing, nice to go with Photoshop which is found for free legally here: fwrd.pw/CSPS

Summary

I like batch editing to resize or add any filter to a set of images.

"Works like a charm."

March 10, 2015  |  By brightboi

 |  Version: PhotoScape 3.7

Pros

I'm an average guy seeking to do average things with my photos. PhotoScape allows me to do those and a lot more should I choose. The program works like a charm. No complaints. And just for the record, I have absolutely no professional or personal ties to the makers of PhotoScape whatsoever.

Cons

No cons at all.

Summary

I originally downloaded an earlier version of PhotoScape 2-3 years ago via CNET. The program worked beautifully, and I never had any problem with pop ups, malware, etc. I recently upgraded to version 3.7: I could not be more pleased. The upgrade was free and seamless. I do believe the problems that some have voiced about pop ups, malware, etc. are tied to the Download mechanism on CNET itself, NOT PhotoScape. I think you will be very pleased with how robust the software is and how easy it is to use.

Completely bogged down my internet connection since each ad was downloading advertisement videos on each screen.
