Editors' Review

by   / February 27, 2009

Although this photo editor comes with a hefty feature set, the fact that it can only save images as bitmap files (BMP) renders it nearly useless. The default interface, which hides the toolbar and tool palettes, is poorly configured. Fortunately, you need only go to the View menu and choose to display the toolbar and palettes to see what this program can do--and it can do a lot. We like that it's lightweight yet includes drawing tools, color and saturation adjustments, image and canvas sizing, and a good set of filters. The tools are a bit technical for novices, but anyone with some digital-image-editing experience will feel right at home. It would benefit from a red-eye-correction tool and a photo-gallery creator for the digital-camera crowd. Its seven-day trial period will give you a limited time in which to get to know the program. The biggest drawback to Photo Suit is that, though it opens JPEGs, it can only save images as BMPs. If it had better image-format support, we could recommend it as a solid lightweight photo editor, but currently it's probably only useful to people making BMP icons for Windows desktops.
