Editors' Review

Pictomio is freeware for displaying and managing digital images, photos, and videos, including 3D-accelerated images. It does slideshows, edits EXIF information, creates albums, and facilitates uploading and downloading images to Web sites like Flickr and YouTube. What sets it apart from the crowd is geotagging, the ability to attach geographical data to digital photos. The built-in PictoGEO add-on gives Pictomio GPS compatibility, including a GPS import wizard; a 3D trip display that includes waypoints, tracklogs, and routes; direct support for GPS tracksticks; manual geotagging (optionally stored as EXIF data); and built-in trip planning and management features.

Pictomio's setup wizard prompts you to synchronize your digital camera's time setting, a one-time operation. The attractive, skinnable interface has a unique layout based on a series of tabs, expandable panes, and animated icons. Navigation is easy, with a series of tabs for browsing the file system, Pictomio's library structure, and PictoGEO, as well as other tabs for selecting image views and info, EXIF data, albums, and more. The Carousel feature is nifty; it's a 3D thumbnail display that you can rapidly spin with your mouse. The feel is natural and precise, and it's a fun way to browse through a lot of images without squinting. The interactive Map feature lets you choose between Google Maps and Microsoft Virtual Earth. We tried both; they offer similar features and capabilities. Another feature we liked is the Globe, a built-in interactive 3D Earth view on the navigation sidebar. The image-editing functions are basic but capable, but its EXIF, geotagging, and other image data features are Pictomio's primary attraction.

We've tested other digital photo software with geographical extras, and geographical information tools with built-in image-handling and geotagging capabilities, but few with Pictomio's unique combination of useful tools. And no others do what Pictomio does for free.

Garbage, don't download win7 antivirus deletes it. This cNet downloader thing is garbage too. I just want the file, without trogens/toolbars/crap is that too much to ask for?

Pros

Looks great for about 5 seconds

Cons

Crashes after 5 seconds

Summary

Would not run on my HP a6230n PC with 3GB RAM and a GeForce 6150SE nForce 430 integrated video card with 128MB RAM. I'm running 32bit Vista. Main screen went black after about 5 seconds and would not respond. I updated my drivers (windows was already updated), still nothing.

"Complex but brilliant"

July 17, 2010  |  By hainus

 |  Version: Pictomio 1.2.31

Pros

Brilliant Geo tagging options, excellent link-up with various social networking sites, stylish photo manager

Cons

Basic editing functions, random crashes

Summary

This is an excellent photo manager which has allowed me to finally Geo tag all my photos in a snip. I love how i can download my pics from facebook, edit them, then upload them back again. Its got basic editing tools so not for the pro's and sometimes i get a random crash but for a free program, the features far out-way whats expected of such a program and the niggles are tolerable.
