Editors' Review

Download.com Staff Feb 27, 2009
Billed for the professional as well as the amateur photographic artist, SkyView is a powerful program that packs in an impressive amount of features for digital imaging and editing. For expert photographers or image editors, SkyView offers many options for photo restoration, touch-ups, and other features. Amateurs may want to spend some time with the program's tutorial, as the list of program functions isn't immediately comprehensible for those more familiar with point-and-shoot photography. Photo images are easily downloaded, and once completed, can be cropped, sharpened, and resized. A video-editing option adds the ability to add video to image files, or to combine a series of still photographs into a video file. SkyView, while robust, requires patience--effects especially take some time to complete. Endless editing options make SkyView a must-have for the photo expert, and a recommended study for the amateur.

The application maintains a full 64-bit image path for professional operations such as restoring faded photos, removing dirt and tears, aspherical lens correction, chroma keying, compositing, and seamless tiling. It's simple enough for the novice and delivers the power professionals need.

Version 1.23 adds pop-up help (ToolTips), improves scanning for a range of devices, and SFX for 3D renderers such as Seamless reflection map creation (Polar Distortion).
