    "Listen to CNET & me..."

    July 4, 2006  |   By jerz

    Version: PixMatrix 2.1

    Pros

    ...give this program a shot! I LOVE it! Makes my life easier. Produces great looking pages (with my own graphics and backgrounds) fast! It resizes photos beautifully and effortlessly -- one or batched, right in front of your eyes. Then it optimizes the files IDEALLY! No other program I have makes such small files look so good (even when I try the same compression, etc.)!

    Cons

    While there are a load of templates, your pictures and captions can be tough to place in very precise spots. If you're adding a long story, the design templates can be a challenge to make pages look well laid-out. And, much of the supplied graphics and backgrounds seem to be "dated" -- maybe even some "groovy" or "hep" items. (Or, are they ultra fashionable "retro" designs??? Hmmm.) It's easy to insert yer own stuff instead, while using their layout choices for photo placement. It will take a LITTLE practice to master this program, but then you can create some nice looking, quick stuff.

    "Well, I have to agree..."

    March 20, 2006  |   By comicfan

    Version: PixMatrix 2.1

    Pros

    It's free.

    Cons

    Many times software gets slammed but in this case I would have to agree with the others, what were the editors thinking? This software came out of the gate and ran out the other. In my opinion it's not worth the trouble downloading. You have to search through a mess to find your pics, not to mention each time I started the program I had different options, very wierd. The interface is ugly, the options are ugly and not just in visual but usage as well. I don't suggest wasting time on this as you will be dissapointed. There are a thousand better image editors out there, this doesn't even qualify. Xnview will do 90% more as will Picasa and others. But it is free although you couldn't pay me to use it.

    "Great for sharing photos on the web"

    May 16, 2005  |   By NewsAddict

    Version: PixMatrix 2.1

    Pros

    We use PixMatrix to share photos with grandparents and it is working great. There are a lot of features of this program that I do not use, but for quickly putting lots of pictures with some text on the internet, it works really well.

    Cons

    It would be good if there was an easier way to find my photos on my hard-drive instead of having to go to the "my pictures" folder.

    "CNET is Talking Lies - This is Nonsese"

    May 13, 2005  |   By tumza

    Version: PixMatrix 2.1

    Pros

    Zero Pros

    Cons

    This Program is the worst i have seen

    i don't what category it quilifies, because it does not qualify to be an HTML editor.

    I think they must have paid CNET to write a nice review about this crap piece of outdated software. The templates are so outdated you can't even use one.

    My advice is Don't even try it. useless.

    rather try Yahoo HtML Editor even though is limited.
