Editors' review

This program offers a set of image-editing tools large enough to please all but professional users. Using VCW VicMan's Photo Editor will be easy for just about anyone, especially those familiar with the standard design used in many similar program. You'll find basic tools for resizing, cropping, and rotating pictures, as well as such drawing tools as a pencil, a paintbrush, a filler, an eraser, and the Magic Wand. You'll also like the large number of filters and effects, including those for color correction, blurring, mosaics, and fish-eye. You even get a tool that can turn a picture of a person into a cartoonish caricature. We appreciated the preview window, which let us check out our edits before we applied them. Though this application supports many Photoshop-compatible filters, it can't work with multiple layers or several files at once. You'll find support for a wide array of popular image types in this free version, though you'll have to pay for the Pro version if you want to save files in the ubiquitous GIF format. Unless you need the high-powered punch of a pricey program such as Photoshop or CorelDraw, we think this image editor will suit you.

    "DO NOT INSTALL! THIS IS SPYWARE!"

    January 03, 2012   |   By frankota

    Version: VCW VicMan's Photo Editor 8.1

    Pros

    Absolutely NOTHING!

    Cons

    When I looked at the reviews, I noticed one that was obviosly set up by the company; it looked SO fake.
    After that, avast let me know that something was wrong TWICE!
    It would not open, beyond the menu screen where it asks if I would like to see a tutorial video; the link took me to an online website.
    I tried to open the actual photo editor, but it wouldn't work.
    Then, when I uninstalled, it said that not all elements could be erased.
    TOTALLY SPYWARE! DO NOT INSTALL!

    Summary

    I looked at all of the reviews, noticed one was fake, the rest looked fine, and helpful! But THIS IS SPYWARE! It could not uninstall all of the way, and took me to external websites!

    "love this software"

    November 19, 2011   |   By vsidles

    Version: VCW VicMan's Photo Editor 8.1

    Pros

    this software is the bomb! I use it all the time; it's the second software I go to AFTER I crop everything in photo gallery. I use this software to make everything look pretty. This software is excellent for taking out flaws, removing unwanted noise, red eye, taking out wrinkles, making someone look thinner, fatter, or whatever, I can get a professional look from this simple, free program.

    Cons

    Not many. The only thing I don't do with this program is tweak the color correction.

    Summary

    Vicman's Photo Editor in my opinion is one of the best software programs for giving someone an airbrushed look or for fixing flaws, noise, taking years off a face, thinning someone out, making professional looking changes to portraits. I LOVE this program. Best of all, it's FREE.

    "excellent photo editing freeware"

    March 22, 2010   |   By albo2albo

    Version: VCW VicMan's Photo Editor 8.1

    Pros

    Very easy to use, packed with features and free - why look elsewhere !

    Cons

    none found so far

    Summary

    Maybe its not powerful enough for a professional user (?), but for the the vast majority of users who wants to touch up or edit their photos this app has more tools and gizmos than you will ever need.

    "VCW VicMan's Photo Editor 8.1 -- Not User Friendly"

    July 25, 2009   |   By skabberdink

    Version: VCW VicMan's Photo Editor 8.1

    Pros

    I didn't like much about it except that it was free.

    Cons

    I uninstalled it within 2 minutes of download because I found it to be annoying due to it's preview window, where changes were supposed to happen and then the drop down menus were confusing and very small. Not worth the time.
