Editors' Review

Many people prefer to use big, full-featured photo-editing programs like Photoshop, but for others, those sorts of programs can be overwhelming and way too complex. Fotografix is a basic image editor that gives users a few advanced features, like the capability to work with layers, but that is generally geared toward the casual user.

The program's interface is quite plain, reminding us a lot of Microsoft Paint. Menus across the top and a toolbar down the left side give users access to the program's features. We appreciated the fact that the program employs a fairly standard set of menus and icons, making it easy for users to find what they're looking for. There are the typical image editing functions--cropping, rotation, resizing, and so-on. Users can adjust brightness, contrast, color balance, and levels. There is a handful of effects to choose from, including sharpening, blurring, and creating embossed or night vision looks, among others. Users can also add text, draw on images, and do limited image correction with a cloning tool. The program's online Help file is brief but adequate. Overall, Fotografix doesn't bring anything to the table that we haven't seen many times before, but it does manage to include the most important tools for basic photo editing. The program is easy to navigate, and users with any photo editing experience at all should be able to figure out most of its features.

Photografix comes as a ZIP file and is accessible after extraction with no installation. We recommend this program to all users seeking a basic, lightweight photo editor.
