Editors' Review

+
It's hard to match the selection of features in this product. The user interface makes it easy to view and organize images. Ulead Photo Explorer provides an admirable CD cataloging feature and lets the user share VCD/DVD files. The program works smoothly downloading images from both digital cameras and scanners. On the downside, the download takes a long time. Also, the program permanently attaches files to your system, write-protecting them in the process. This makes it difficult, if not impossible, to remove the software from your operating system. On top of that, there is no uninstall program, and data miners are included in the executable program file. Ulead Photo Explorer is easy enough for the beginner to use while providing enough advanced features to satisfy the expert, but users will have to decide whether its features offset its drawbacks.

"A handy tool for downloads, printing proofs and pics."

March 07, 2011  |  By vbenade

 |  Version: Ulead Photo Explorer 8.5

Pros

Mostly this is fairly easy to use for dealing with weeding out things quickly when downloading the camera. I use it also for making proof sheets with identifying titles/image numbers for quick reference, and making prints. Works well for such tasks

Cons

Fitting prints to their pre-defined full-page sheets is a bit challenging, but a little experimenting can point the way.

Summary

Inexpensive and reliable. I messed up my early version (ver. 7) and am grateful that Corel has been making ver. 8.5 available, at least for a while.

"I would avoid this if given the choice"

November 01, 2010  |  By sradforth

 |  Version: Ulead Photo Explorer 8.5

Pros

Nothing, I don't even want to run it

Cons

It installs without your permission and attaches to everything making it a nightmare to remove.

Summary

I have never knowingly installed this but must have been attached to another system. Now when I double click a jpg or other image it will load this (3 minutes later ) rather than my previously instant JPG viewer. It's dreadfully slow to start and worst of all I didn't ask for it, don't want it and can't get rid of it. This has slowed my productivity so much and I now will steer clear of anything associated with ULead.
There are some really good image viewers and editors. Paint.NET is best free editor around and Picasa from Google is miles better at viewing things quickly.

"not very good"

August 31, 2009  |  By rsrupert1972

 |  Version: Ulead Photo Explorer 8.5

Pros

it shows media

Cons

crashes every 2 minutes on me

Summary

I dislike any product that crashes consistantly. Especially a paid product. I used Ulead Picture explorer in the days of Win98 and had no problems then. I wish I could just find that disk

"Best photo display software I've used."

April 28, 2009  |  By rdraps

 |  Version: Ulead Photo Explorer 8.5

Pros

It has handled any photo file format I've asked it to. It is stable, never having initiated a crash - always a big plus. There are many display options that make using it very easy and intuitive.

Cons

The only feature I would like improved is burning a slideshow to DVD. What I would like is the ability to burn a reader on the DVD along with the photos that would act the same as Photo Explorer - letting me show multiple photos on the same screen.

"Stable, clean uncluttered interface and rich in features!"

September 14, 2006  |  By John.Moore.

 |  Version: Ulead Photo Explorer 8.5

Pros

I've been using ACDsee for many years until I got fed up with how unstable the program is. This program looks very nice, it is quite stable and has many features worth checking out. My favourite feature is that when photos are downloaded from my Digital Camera, they are automatically renamed so that they it won't overwrite photos aready existing in the folder with the same name. A large program at over 20MB but quite stable, clean uncluttered interface and rich in features!
