Editors' review

PictureTrail offers Photo Editor for free as a handy way to touch up digital photos before uploading or printing. Of course, it works hand-in-hand with PictureTrail's online photo-sharing service. Installation went smoothly, though the demo required an e-mail address and gave no explanation as to why. The interface resembles Windows Explorer; double-clicking an image in the file-tree window opens it in the main window. From there, you can perform basic editing tasks, including cropping, scrolling, resizing, rotating, adding text, watermarking, and removing red-eye. When saving a file, you may configure image quality, encoding, and sampling, and even save all those settings as defaults. The image can be saved as a JPEG, BMP, or PNG file. PictureTrail's online help, however, is substandard, so if you get stuck, you'll have to e-mail tech support. We enjoyed using this program and recommend it to casual photographers, although serious amateurs and professionals will demand more powerful filters and effects.

    "Pretty fast to use"

    November 03, 2005   |   By valdsmt

    Version: PictureTrail Photo Editor 1.6

    Pros

    The thumbnails of the photos load pretty fast. Much faster than some of the other programs, especially for my 500K digicam photos. I find myself reaching for this app everytime I need to quickly look up some photos and do some basic cropping and resizing. The batch functions are pretty cool.

    Cons

    No layers support. I can add text to a photo but I can't manage layers of text or place other graphics on the photos.
