PhotoPerfect Express

Editors' Review

Download.com Staff May 21, 2009

Photo editing can be a long and painful process, especially for people inexperienced with the complex software and processes involved. PhotoPerfect Express provides users with the ability to make quick changes to their images without a lot of hassle.

This free program has an incredibly simple interface. Using traditional file search methods for selecting a picture, your images quickly dominate the screen. Along the top are a few options for editing, saving, and making batches. Along the right-hand side are five different thumbnails of the main photo. Clicking on each thumbnail shows how PhotoPerfect applies a different finish to your photo and how that particular finish adjusts the color, clarity, sharpness, and contrast of each. In addition, there is a slider atop each picture allows you to compare the image before optimization to what it looks like after. Each photo that we put through the ringer was successfully edited to our liking.

All in all, PhotoPerfect has a very unique way of improving photos. Experienced photo editors might want more bells and whistles than what this program has to offer. However, if you are new to photo editing, or don't have the interest in learning the complex procedures, this is a great download to provide quick and simple photo adjustments.

Developer's Description

Focus on taking pictures, and leave the editing to PhotoPerfect Express. Let's face it: who wants to spend hours laboriously processing all the pictures from the last photo session or family gathering by hand? Although you know that with a little post-processing, many of those pictures could be significantly improved. With PhotoPerfect Express, you'll see your photos immediately enhanced with five powerful lab-strength optimization algorithms - in just three easy steps, using an intuitive visual user interface. Simply select the result that you like best, save it and move on to your next photo. No further photo editing skills are required--even people new to a computer can use the software right away! You will be rewarded with vibrant, correctly exposed, locally contrast enhanced, dynamic range increased and memory color adapted photos. Photos which faithfully remind you of what you really saw. Also red-eyes and noise will be removed automatically if necessary.
