Editors' Review

There seem to be two genres of photo-editing programs: those that try to be comprehensive, full-featured pieces of software, and those that seek to do just a few things and do them really well. Picture Merge Genius falls into the latter category. Although there are numerous other programs that do exactly what Picture Merge Genius does, the program is designed to make the process of combining multiple images as easy as possible. And for that, we like it very much.

Let's say, for example, that you want to create a single image that's composed of several photos of your dog. Perhaps you want to print this out and frame it, or maybe you just want to post it in your blog. Picture Merge Genius lets you select an image size, insert the component images, arrange everything the way you want it, and save it as a new image. A handy wizard will walk neophyte users through every step of the process, and more-advanced users can start from scratch and enter their own parameters. Images can be placed on top of one another and individually adjusted for opacity, allowing users to artistically blend multiple photos. We also liked that the program lets users select custom background colors. A basic image editor supplies useful features like cropping, rotating, and controls for contrast and brightness. The program's built-in Help file is brief but adequate. Overall, we think Picture Merge Genius is a great choice for users who want to combine multiple images but aren't comfortable working in more-advanced photo-editing programs.

Picture Merge Genius has a five-day trial period. The program installs and uninstalls without issues. We recommend this program to all users.
