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.

"No longer good Don't download stuff from the internet!"

November 30, 2014  |  By scammenot

 |  Version: PhotoScape 3.6.5

Pros

Nothing good about it.

Cons

Downloaded a bunch of other stuff on my computer that looked like malware. I quickly uninstalled and did a system restore. Grrrr......

Summary

From my experiences downloading software on the computer is VERY RISKY. It's best to buy it from a store and install it yourself then you have a disc.
Lately, I've had my computer infected from trying to clean it and trusting online tech sites that were scammers and installed malware and charged me a bunch of money. I can't afford to keep taking my computer to a local tech to clean the mistakes I'm making downloading stuff from the internet anymore so I will never do it again. Take it from me. EVEN if CNET says it's good, it most likely isn't. I've had bad downloads from their recommendations too.

"Over 5 years of use and counting, couldn't be happier."

August 22, 2014  |  By albertagirl2014

 |  Version: PhotoScape 3.6.5

Pros

UNBELIEVABLY EASY to figure out and use! Does an EXCELLENT job doing basic photo editing tasks. Is THE go to editor for quick fixes. Love it.

Cons

I dont know of any cons besides perhaps not being able to do really in depth edits. Not what it is about tho in my opinion,

Summary

I have my 'pro' editor for intricate editing and this one for quick fixes. It never lets me down, great quality.

"DANGER: MALWARE"

July 26, 2014  |  By dkump

 |  Version: PhotoScape 3.6.5

Pros

The program disappeared after my antivirus program wiped the malware file. I don't know what happened, but good riddance!

Cons

I installed this without reading the reviews and upon installation I got an immediate notification of malware. It took me all morning and afternoon to rid and rescan this computer. Come on CNet! You're supposed to be watching out for these kinds of things.

Summary

Danger, Will Robinsion, Danger!

"Nice Application"

June 19, 2014  |  By spartan100

 |  Version: PhotoScape 3.6.5

Pros

Have a lot of functions, organized well

Cons

Well the pros are also the cons.. the app is well organized but in another way then a traditional photo editor so if you work with a traditional photo editor in the past you'll need time to adjust

"Excellent Program"

March 03, 2014  |  By AJOHMSS

 |  Version: PhotoScape 3.6.5

Pros

Offers many of the features that one would find on programs like Photoshop but considerably more accessible.

Cons

Malware and adware throughout the latest version.

Summary

Get an older version of Photoscape and NOT the latest. This program is now ADsupported and will drive you crazy with what it downloads onto your computer.

"PhotoScape"

February 16, 2014  |  By tryingalways

 |  Version: PhotoScape 3.6.5

Pros

It has numerous photo program's in one program that is very good and easy to use.

Cons

For making a .gif, not all web sites will let you put up what you made, but not all web sites lets other people to see your work. It has very many options you can do to a single or more pictures

Summary

When downloading, click manual download so you can pick if you like tool bars, and other programs not related to this program. It will stop at each other programs you would like to download with it.BE SURE TO READ WHAT IT IS ASKING FOR DO NOT AGREE WITH OR UN CHECK THE BOXES FROM ***BOTTOM UP*** NOT TOP TO DOWN. LIKE THE UP DATE FOR ADOBE FLASH PLAYER ALWAYS ASKS IF YOU WANT TO DOWNLOAD ***GOOGLE CHROME*** JUST UN CHECK THE BOX AN YOU WILL NOT GET CHROME
