PhotoScape Editor's Review

Using photo editors is not limited to the circles of graphic designers and print media professionals anymore. Nearly every PC user has some or other image editing app installed in his or her PC. Given the rise of digital camera usage and smart phones toting HD cameras, snapping images has become a cakewalk for masses. The question is which application you choose. Not everyone will require an expensive and feature loaded software like Corel Photo Paint or Adobe’s Photoshop. If you want a basic but useful image editor that does not cost anything, try Photoscape. The truth is it is more than just an image editor.

PhotoScape offers basic image manipulation tools and also packs in image viewer, animated GIF generation and much more. This freeware and multilingual image editor runs on Windows XP and later versions of OSes. The installation is simple and gets over pretty fast. The installer prompts to install Google Drive.

While PhotoScape is loaded with features, the interface may seem to be somewhat baffling to first time users. It is not like what you get in typical freeware or commercial image editing apps. The UI comprises of thirteen functions set in circle around the app’s logo. You also get nine tabs on top left portion of the UI. Basically, you can divide the options into 7 sections- Batch Editor, Animated GIF, Page, Editor, Merge, Viewer and Print. PhotoScape also comes with a comprehensive help manual.

No matter which module you open in this software, you get a file browser for navigation. Regular dragging and dropping is also supported. The Print, Page and Merge modules offer more or less the same functionality but feature lists vary a little.

The photo editing tools included in PhotoScape are nothing that advanced users will drool over. They let you perform basic editing and retouching including sharpening, brightness, and contrast adjustment. There are a handful of filters but they lack the finesse of apps like Photoshop or Corel Painter. You may have to play with them a while to understand which ones are really useful. The absence of layers and History will make serious users ruffled though. The tools for eradicating red eye and spots are not flawless as well.

The regular photo viewer that comes with PhotoScape is okay for personal use and it shows images in full screen mode. It also lets you set wallpapers. For making same series of changes to a number of images, you can use the application’s batch editing module. The app also offers a GIF animation creation module with a number of still images. You may preview the output right within the app interface. There is an integrated screen capture tool that lets you capture screenshots. DSLR users will like the RAW converter which comes with useful features like auto white balance adjustments. Processing multiple RAW images can prove to be sluggish though.

Positive Points:
• Freeware, multilingual app.
• Loaded with multiple functionalities than editor.
• RAW converter, screen capture utility.
• Inbuilt GIF animation module.

Negative Points:
• Basic filters and editing tools.
• No layer support.
• Red eye tool is average.

Conclusion:
PhotoScape is targeted at home users who want a free image editing that is easy to use and comes with features that aid image sharing and publishing. It has an unusual startup interface but getting hang of things is not that hard either. The screen capture and batch processing tools are nifty utilities. Inclusion of RAW converter is ideal for DSLR users too. However, advanced user will grudge about omission of layer support. If you find the truckload of features too much, refer to the help files.
Rating: 3.5/5
