Editors' Review

Download.com Staff May 3, 2009

There's nothing wrong with how PC Image Editor works--the program is simple and effective--but it lacks the options found in other editing programs. Newcomers to image editing will appreciate this simplicity, but experienced users will probably want more.

This freeware program presents itself much like Windows' Paintbrush utility. The screen is dominated by open white space that can be filled with a picture from your hard drive. Along the top run icons for saving, opening files, cutting, printing, reversing, and a clipboard. Along the side are the icons that allow users to edit their photographs. Icons for selecting, erasing, painting, drawing lines, making shapes, air brushing, and cropping will look familiar to anyone with previous experience with photo-altering software. Editing photographs is a simple process. Users can easily and intuitively choose a picture and start using the editing tools to change their shot, and all the tools worked as expected.

PC Image Editor is a basic program that doesn't have any flaws in its design. However, the editing choices are very limited compared with more professional software, and experienced users will probably want more than this freeware offers. Those new to image editing, though, might like this simple program's intuitive approach and easy navigation.
