Editors' Review

STOIK Imagic is a large, feature-packed photo album, organizer, manager, and editor. It's also a retouching tool, a calendar maker, a media cataloger, a video editor, and a drawing tool. In short, it's a full-featured graphics suite with an emphasis on digital photographs. At 80MB, it's a big download, but since it's compressed, it's a fast one, too, and setup is virtually automatic, including scanning your system for images. Anything else? You bet: it's free.

Like all proper graphics apps worth the name, STOIK Imagic's interface is finished in mod dark-gray tones with white lettering. Imagic automatically scanned our system and displayed the results in a left-hand tree view under the Browse tab. Clicking any directory of images displayed thumbnails; clicking a thumbnail opened the image in a separate view. We could create customized slideshows easily from any selection of images. Tabs labeled Photo and Video let us edit images or video using a wide range of tools, effects, brushes, stamps, filters, and image fixers. We opened and edited an image, undoing, redoing, and saving the results. We could frame images; use them to create calendars, jigsaw puzzles, wallpaper, and clip art; distort, warp, blend, pinch, punch, and explode images; add text, images, colors, shapes, and textures; simulate charcoal, pencil, mosaics, and other artistic styles and effects; and correct for a wide range of photographic defects, even correcting spherical and trapezoidal lens defects via horizontal and vertical sliders. The warp tool superimposed a grid view that we could pull and tug to distort the image, creating Pinocchio noses and fun house mirror effects. We also liked the Improvement Wizard and the way Imagic offers advice for correcting and improving images. Imagic's processes and tools are efficient and work well, even in the inevitable comparison to Photoshop. However, Imagic is no Adobe clone and doesn't try to be, especially in areas like pen compatibility. While they naturally share many functions, their missions differ considerably. In any case, STOIK Imagic is freeware; Photoshop isn't.

STOIK Imagic is available in an upgraded Pro version with some extra tools, such as improved video authoring and raw development. Most users will probably be perfectly satisfied with the free version's raft of features and capabilities, though. We certainly were, and we plan to keep it around.

January 08, 2014  |  By markus_aurelius

Pros

Doesn't do anything except get you a whole bunch of popup adverts for weeks to come, until you figure out how to remove them again from your computer.

Cons

Doesn't do anything except get you a whole bunch of popup adverts for weeks to come, until you figure out how to remove them again from your computer.

"Good and useful software"

December 22, 2013  |  By jaredhoi

 |  Version: STOIK Imagic 5.0.6.3647

Pros

Easy to use
No learning curve
Covers many features of photo handling

Cons

So far no cons.

Summary

Until now I used Imagic to create Panoramic images (after the FREE arcsoft panorama maker went UNFREE).
I found Imagic user-friendly and easy to use.
The panoramic image came out perfectly (may be dependent on the originals quality).

"lots of great features."

July 27, 2012  |  By shahsa1

 |  Version: STOIK Imagic 5.0.6.3647

Pros

I mostly use it for editing photos. It's got great effects to choose from. The only thing missing is different color effects. Also, as I am still on the trial, I don't know what features I'll lose my my trial is over and I have the free version left.

Cons

No photo editing for color effects. That is very disappointing.

"Friendly, easy to use and efficient photo editor!"

 |  Version: STOIK Imagic 5.0.6.3647

Pros

Clear, intuitive interface. Impressive results for a simple editor. Even a pro can enjoy it's ease of use.

After getting the Premium version free to try for two weeks, I bought the Premium version so I guess I was convinced by the quality of the program!

-As a video editor, it's not the best out there, obvioulsy.

Summary

Try it! If you love photography and don't have a lot of time to invest in
« understanding » a photo editor, this one is for you.

"not bad for photo software"

March 01, 2011  |  By lindalou1956

 |  Version: STOIK Imagic 5.0.6.3647

Pros

I like the way it looks, I like how easy it is to use. I like how everything is in one spot

Cons

I am not impressed that they say for the trial everything is the same as if it was premium yet some of the buttons are not available in the trial.

Summary

I like it better than any other photo software, but do not think I will purchase as there are many out there for free.

"Great - bit it kept crashing"

March 01, 2011  |  By FMHogg

 |  Version: STOIK Imagic 5.0.6.3647

Pros

Clean and easy to use; all the features I wanted.

Cons

Just one problem - after using it for less than a minute, it would crash, locking up so that further use was not possible. This on a month old Windows 7 system. Same result logging on as administrator.

"Easy download, but everything is disabled"

February 24, 2011  |  By patriot157

 |  Version: STOIK Imagic 5.0.6.3647

Pros

Easy to download, and load.

Cons

Not much on the program works, almost like a demo, without letting u try it. To be honest, it irritates me, that U read nothing about that in the description. Waste of time and bandwidth for me.

Summary

Had this described the way this program is set up in the description I probably would have tried it with those limitations in mind, the fact that it doesn't, had me remove it after the first try.

"To many features disabled in free version"

February 23, 2011  |  By etclhm

 |  Version: STOIK Imagic 5.0.6.3647

Pros

Nice clean interface, installs with no problems

Cons

To many of the key features disabled in the free version, better off with Picaso or Paint.net or any of the full featured free Organizer/editors that are available.

Summary

Not worth the time to download and install, based on operation of the free version, my guess is that the premium version would be fine.
