    "Beats Photoshop CS4 @ 300x, and by a mile, not inches."

    January 17, 2012  |   By japastor

    Version: PhotoZoom Pro 4.1.2

    Pros

    Does exactly what it advertises, and I got it for half price!

    Cons

    Haven't found any yet.

    Summary

    I assumed that this was a BS product, because it was claiming to do something I was skeptical of its delivering on, but hey, they offer a free trial (fully functional). I downloaded it, installed it, fired it up, and brought in a couple of images from my collection. The results were pretty startling.

    But I'd read the reviews here, one of which says that it doesn't do any more than the image editing SW he has, so I fired up Photoshop CS4 and loaded the same images. I tried every variant of sharpening in CS4 and could not get *close* to what PhotoZoom did. If I could post screen caps, I would, but I'm not talking about a little improvement, I'm talking about cleaning up an image that I'd otherwise not even bother printing.

    BTW, I'm a photographer and printer, and have been for 40+ years. I started (obviously) in a wet darkroom, but I'm now all digital. I use Lightroom for anything it can do, Photoshop for most of the rest, and some exotic things (like a dust removal tool from Polaroid, of all people, that was a *bear* to find). I print on an HP Z3200PS-44, which is up in the cream of the crop of under-$10K inkjets.

    I don't work for BenVista or know anyone involved with them, and in fact had never heard of them or this product until I got email from a company called Roxco offering it for half price. That piqued my interest enough to take a look, and PhotoZoom is now part of my arsenal: I ordered a license within an hour of downloading it the trial version (which turned into a full version when I entered the license number).

    So -- take my word or not, but you don't have to: you can see for yourself without spending a dime. Download the free trial and try it on some of your own images, and bring up your favorite general-purpose graphics editor on the same image at the same magnification. You really won't believe it until you see it. I don't think that there's anything on the market in the way of general-purpose graphics editors that can do better than Photoshop CS4, so I'd put money on your being pleasantly surprised.

    Updated on Jan 17, 2012

    Oh, BTW, I'm using the latest version as of today's date, 1/17/2012 (4.1.2). If you look at John_Anonymous's page (click on his name), it appears that he was looking at version 3.0, not even 4.0.

    I also suspect that he didn't resize to 300% as I did, because in general use that's extraordinarily rare, and it's entirely possible that at 120% the difference is invisible. I wanted to check the claim that it could work at magnifications where I pretty much knew nothing would work -- and to my surprise it did.

    So, John_Anonymous, try cranking up the magnification and see the difference. Why would anyone want to do something like that? Well, a very tight crop might be a good situation -- but when you're dealing with a printer that can lay down 1200 dpi the difference in sharpness at lower magnifications would be far more apparent than on a screen @ 72dpi. I can't *wait* to try a PhotoZoomed image and the same image sharpened by Photoshop on my printer.

    "Don't waste your money on this product."

    November 19, 2011  |   By John_Anonymous

    Version: PhotoZoom Pro 4.1.2

    Pros

    It does resize and sharpen images.

    Cons

    It costs one or two hundred dollars for something other programs do for free.

    Summary

    The reason for my one star rating is that the good reviews of this product were obviously written by shills working for the company. I might have given it two stars just because it does what it says, but I detest deceit. I myself use the old MS Photo Editor to resize and sharpen my images. I did this with two test images, and the result was almost identical to what this ridiculously expensive product did. Note that my Photo Editor is over fifteen years old!!!
