Editors' Review

by   / November 30, 2009

DreamLight Photo Editor is like many image-editing tools. It adds dreamlike effects to your photos: filters like Light, Star, Amazing, and so on, and backgrounds, borders, and print options. The translated English is quirky and the support is thin, but it does what it's supposed to and seems easy enough to use. We wish it had multiple undos, but you can only undo the most recent change.

If your PC is, say, less than five years old and came with a typical software bundle, you probably already have an image editor that can do most everything DreamLight does, though it may take you a couple of minutes to figure out how to do it and a couple of tries to get it right. And, while DreamLight is free to try for 30 days, it's $39.95 to buy, which is a lot, considering the competition.

Still, if you like the sort of effects DreamLight produces in your photos and you don't already have an image editor or are simply too intimidated by its complexity (there's a reason why "photoshop" is a verb), then DreamLight might be for you. And we like the developer's idea of giving it as a gift to someone who has a computer but can't and won't ever get past the most basic operations. Most of us know someone like that--Grandma, for instance--who'd love to be able to enhance and share family photos, if only she could get the darn machine to do it for her.

What do you need to know about free software?
