Imagia has consistent user interface. It always runs fullscreen and the settings are always in the same place. Once you learn it, you will never feel lost. Keyboard use in Imagia introduces new original ideas.
Learning Imagia is a pleasure. It is pure fun to see how fast this program runs, how your image within seconds turns into masterpiece and few seconds later you find a setting that makes it even better. There are dozens of settings to change at your fingertips. Not hidden in menus and modal dialogs but just on the left in the main window.
If your photo needs straightening or cropping - use Imagia to do it.
Global adjustment is a start. Imagia allows user to use brush to change photos locally. Lighten some parts of an image and darken the others, sharpen the eyes and smoothen the skin...
Color, black and white, lomo, selective color, dualtoning... There are over 40 settings templates ready after you install Imagia. Each template represents different style. Users can save their own templates and share them online easily. Pick new templates from the gallery on OproLab's web page and download them free.
If you use RAW format when you shot your photos you can't pick any image editor. Most of them does not open RAW formats. Imagia has no limits in this matter. Thanks to dcraw developed by Dave Coffin it can open almost any Raw file. When a new camera appears on the market dcraw usualy is first that can open its files. dcrawFront added to Imagia makes using dcraw more intuitive.
Edited photos can be easily uploaded to Facebook, Google and Skydrive. Mind you that those photos will have small, discreet IMAGIA watermark on it to encourage you and a your friends to buy full version of IMAGIA.
