Although nothing beats Photoshop, you don't have to empty your wallet to get professional results from an image editor. The features of this lightweight yet powerful image-editing tool rival those found in other high-end products. LView Pro packs a punch with seven components: an image editor, an image-file browser, a slide-show viewer, a contact-sheet builder, a Web-gallery builder, a batch-print spooler, and an image catalog. The image editor alone is worth the price of registration; it offers layer and transparency control, painting tools, collapsible toolbars, support for pressure-sensitive tablets, and the ability to create and edit GIF animations. The organization of the interface puts everything right where you need it, including easy-to-understand help files. Overall, the layer support, simplicity, and price make this image-editor a definite keeper that will appeal to graphic designers and amateurs alike.
