Editors' Review

+

This compact program edits images and animations in the most popular formats. Despite its small size and light footprint, Saint Paint Studio has all the essential image-editing features, including tools for cropping, resizing, correcting colors, applying various effects, and drawing with a brush or pen.

Similar to full-fledged graphic-design packages, the program supports layers and lets you create simple animations. Saint Paint uses all the standard hot keys found in other image editors. However, the interface is crammed with tools and is outdated compared to other, similar products. On the plus side, mouse-over labels make it easy to figure out what each tool is, but the overall aesthetic feels drab and could use a redesign.

The program no longer comes bundled with Talking TimeKeeper, a great improvement, although the nag screen still exists for trial users. Considering its small size and decent capabilities, Saint Paint makes a nice pick for those who don't need the advanced features in more expensive image editors, but it doesn't offer enough to make it unique or a must-have.

"A cut above Paint or other basic programs"

October 13, 2009  |  By patrick16689

 |  Version: Saint Paint Studio 16.1

Pros

Tools are easy to learn. And allow all the basic stuff. I'm too lazy to learn the complexities of Photshop.

Cons

Can't cut and paste between two open files.

Summary

I use it dam,n near every day for cleaning up pics people send me or I download. Its quick and easy and does the basics well. Similar to Irfanview in most respects. It just isn'r Photoshop and that is fine with me and my needs. The owner who wrote it is easily accessible and open to any corrections or suggestions you may offer him. How cool is that?

"a few nice features but no were near photoshop"

March 19, 2008  |  By hlee

 |  Version: Saint Paint Studio 15

Pros

this editor does some neat things like anamation (actually slide show) . & makes AVIs .. i like some of the key shortcuts. i would love to encourage work like this but alas this is not yet a usable photo editor .. it would be handy for editing solid graphics like charts and cartoons .. its a well done interface and seems to be fast at what it does .. it has the potential to become a really nice tool but needs a lot of work to do that ..

Cons

saint paint lacks many features necessary to do anything but the simplist changes to photos. for instance :

1. rotate will only do flip and 90deg .. you need variable rotate to straighten a photo.

2. there is no way to mark an area for selective editing .. like a face that need brightning .. (lasso / magnetic lasso in photoshop)

3. the red eye reduction feature was very poor on 8 out of 10 samples

4. the magnifier did not work properly at first .. it would enlarge just a little then suddenly the whole screen became just a few pixels .. this seems to work ok using the + and - keys (only on the keypad) but repeat didnt work when the mouse was held clicked ..magnifying / demagnifying was very slow using the mouse .. ok with the key pad

5. there is no cloaning tool as such .. there is a capture / paste tool that is not as convenient or workable and it doesnt have soft edges.

6. worst of all that makes this unusable as a decent photo editor is that nothing has blended edges ..not the pen tool, not the paste tool . .. nothing . this makes harsh transitions whereever edits are made .
