Editors' Review

A good digital photo editor like H&M's Studioline Photo Basic can help digital camera owners manage their ever-growing collections of snapshots. You can use it to import images to your PC from devices like cameras and scanners in all popular file formats. Its central image database makes it easy to manage images and add keywords, descriptions, and EXIF data. It bundles photo editing tools like red-eye and color correction with extras like slideshow and Web gallery features. Best of all, it's free.

We chose the download manager, which didn't install the program's manual until we accessed the Help file to view its tutorials, over the optional, single 61 MB file. The tutorials, ample online help, and optional tool tips make this feature-laden program quite easy to navigate. An intro dialog simplifies operations for beginners yet can be switched off by seasoned users. Clicking on the control buttons calls up a series of dialogs that actually explain each function. We tried the program's two main features, the Image Archive and the Page Editor, each of which functions within the developer's attractive take on the typical three-pane Windows interface: navigation sidebar, main display, and an optional right-hand Menu and Toolbars pane.

Studioline Photo Basic is freeware, yet it offers most of the functionality and features of expensive top-line graphics packages. Its dialog-based controls and ample assistance make it easy enough for beginners to use, yet it packs enough features to satisfy professionals. It works in Vista and Windows 7 and has a 30-day trial, but registration is free and enables updates.

"Review of the Reviews"

January 12, 2013  |  By Ajax6513

 |  Version: Studioline Photo Basic 3.70.51

Pros

Reviews too old to be helpful.

Cons

All are older than dirt. None specify which version they are commenting about. In one word; Useless. CNet reviews on November 2012 and all the personal reviews are a year or more older. So how can one know if any of the negative comments have been corrected??

Summary

Expected more from CNet. You be the judge.

"Doesn't let you use your photos in any other program."

September 10, 2011  |  By purromaniac

 |  Version: Studioline Photo Basic 3.70.40

Pros

OK features for editing your photos. Free.

Cons

Database can only be worked with in the program. If you want to use your photos in another program you can't just browse for them on your computer. Impossible to use with a digital scrapbooking program.

Summary

Very disappointing.

"Not a Good Start!!!"

May 19, 2011  |  By jeh_62

 |  Version: Studioline Photo Basic 3.70.32

Pros

I Didn't have a chance to find any!

Cons

Same thing as above! Read my summary:

Summary

I downloaded this to give it a try. Instal was smooth. I fired it up for the first time and pointed it to a single folder on my HD that contained about 4500 jpg files. After waiting for about 15 minutes watching multiple progress bars, progress dialogues and such, which looked like it was working, The application informs me the "database" is corrupted. What database? I just started to create it?!? Well I terminated the program only to reboot the machine and start it all over again. Same result. I'm not impressed. I'll stick to Windows File viewer, alteast is shows me the thumbs!!!! Unistalled and deleted the download file.

So sad.

"Geat 4 amateurs who want/need good photos."

December 11, 2008  |  By merilyn

 |  Version: StudioLine Photo Basic 3.50.52

Pros

I love being able to do basic manipulation of photos, to be able to star photos to find to manipulate or find 4 many other purposes, & its great to be able to sort into categories when filming various subjects within one 'session'.

Cons

I find it hard to prevent too many duplcations & then how to remove them to leave only one.When trying to highlight 1 of each to save to disk I end up with copies added before transfers can be done.

Summary

This works well 4 those of us who can't afford or justify the complicated and costly alternatives. See above.
