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. The biggest drawback to PictureSuit is that, although 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.
