Editors' Review


Play With Pictures takes one of the most essential image editing features and expands it into an entire program. It is not a photo editor, at least not in the mold of Photoshop. Play With Pictures takes the cut-and-paste feature and simplifies the process while building out supplementary features for creating online avatars, greetings cards, and other projects that require image mash-ups.

The interface presents a re-imagining of the image editing toolset, gearing users towards projects instead of stand-alone edits. The left nav toolbar even notes the steps needed to take a user from start to finish. Tools are categorized as Start, Create, and Finish, clarifying the recommended workflow. Click the Canvas Settings button to begin a project and open a new window from which you can import images, determine background colors, and adjust the image size via slider or specifics. From there, you can add a Cut-Out, Text, or a comic-book-style Speech Bubble. The Cut-Out feature lets you import an image, cut foreground objects from it, and paste them into the background you created in Canvas Settings. Finishing tools include Previewing, Saving, and Printing.

If you're looking to remove lens flare or make fine color-corrective adjustments, Play With Pictures is not for you. Children, however, or those who prefer making image collages, will likely get the most mileage out of this image editor that aims to inject fun into the post-production process.

"Extremely Intuitive to Use"

January 02, 2012  |  By MikeSJ

 |  Version: Play With Pictures 1.0.1


Installed in minutes. I was up-and-running very fast. I could not stand the complexity of Photoshop and Gimp. I thought that for what I need to do which is just cutting part of a picture and adding it to another,there should be something much easier to us. And now I found it. I was able to to cut people from 3 different pictures and add them to another picture in just a few minutes. The software is very intuitive and fast. I love it! I used the version 1.0.9 (upgraded automatically to it after I installed the CNET version) with Lion.


No cons yet.
