    "Makes Photo Editing Fun Again.
    diting Fun Again"

    April 8, 2014  |   By ibjj

    Version: SunlitGreen PhotoEdit 1.4.0.2525

    Pros

    First off, I'm an experienced professional photographer, and need very little in the way of editing. That said, I like the simplicity of commands and menu choices, brighten, contrast changes, rotate/flip etc. They all appear to seamlessly blend in to a smooth piece of work. Spend your time learning the craft of photography and less time riding your rodent and keyboard. It's not Adobe...but it ain't $750.00 either.

    Cons

    The only thing I miss is not being able to convert an image to black and white. Since I seldom desire this, it is not really an issue.

    Summary

    Dumb name! I went through EVERY photo editor on CNet and some that were not, before I settled on this. What it may lack in features (where does "bigger is better" end?) it more than compensates for in speed and ease of use. With T-byte drives so common , program overhead is not an issue either...unless you have an older laptop.

    "Good enough for free."

    January 18, 2011  |   By gocasek

    Version: SunlitGreen PhotoEdit 1.3.0.1272

    Pros

    Very small package.

    Cons

    This program appears to still be in Beta--it updates every two to three days, sometimes every day. if not for this I would give it an extra star.

    "Using VersionTracker as advertising"

    January 6, 2011  |   By steves5

    Version: SunlitGreen PhotoEdit 1.3.0.1182

    Pros

    Have not used it.

    Cons

    Tese guys update their product line every day.

    Summary

    I have noticed this line of software being updated at least several times a week for quite some time now. They have updated this one (the editor) every day this year. I can think of two reasons they might do this:
    1. The product is so buggy that the developers are constantly fixing bugs, or;
    2. They are using VersionTracker to advertise the product and don't actually change anything in the software besides the version number and release date.
    Either of these gives me pause about this particular software.

    "It's simple"

    December 30, 2010  |   By norogis26

    Version: SunlitGreen PhotoEdit 1.3.0.1154

    Pros

    It doesn't take a great mind to understand

    Cons

    None bearing in mind it is a simple programme

    Summary

    I use Picasa which is free and that covers far more but don't dismiss this programme

    "I found this product of no use to me."

    August 31, 2010  |   By gjoreilly

    Version: SunlitGreen PhotoEdit 1.3 build 615

    Pros

    In the short time I had it on my computer I could find no pros.

    Cons

    The free edition is of no benefit whatsoever. All editing tools are locked and cannot be saved.

    Summary

    It is pointless offering a free download without at least a trial period. If I wanted to buy a pig in a poke, I would have bought the full version.

    "Simple & Lightweight Program for Enhancing your Images"

    July 14, 2010  |   By hujan86

    Version: SunlitGreen PhotoEdit 1.3 build 397

    Pros

    Good optimization results from Auto levels feature; lightweight; portable version available

    Cons

    no support for layers; no plug-ins

    Summary

    This is a simple program only for optimizing images, thanks to its basic tools such as brightness, contrast, color balance & saturation adjustments. The Auto levels feature produces above average results. The program is also lightweight, leaving small footprint on the hard drive space & RAM and has an almost instantaneous start-up time. Sadly without support for layers and additional plug-ins, this program is not a powerful photo editor.

    "Fast and does what I need"

    January 28, 2008  |  

    Version: SunlitGreen PhotoEdit 1.1 build 992

    Pros

    This program has all the features for picture correction: color enchantment, resizing and rotation, sharpness changing, without any unnecessary tools to draw. Probably that's why it starts and performs operations rather quickly. I also liked the interface which is easy-to-use and good-looking.

    Cons

    The price is rather high, so I had to register it using a disassembler.
