PhotoWipe

Wednesday, June 16th, 2010

There are situations where you had a nicely taken picture, with all the wonderful smiles of you and your family or friends. Everything is perfect except for unnecessary views that distract the whole picture; a passing stranger on the back might be accidentally caught or a garbage bin right beside you. Before thinking of cutting the picture and scanning it again, there’s a program that can remove unnecessary portions of your picture and retain the most important part.

PhotoWipe is a program for removing or cleaning your pictures from unnecessary views or objects found in your favorite or precious photos. This software does only what it does best; remove unnecessary portions of your pictures.

The program only performs simple functions so it does not require any sophisticated hardware and software to perform better. Pentium III or higher processor, 256MB RAM and 10MB free disk space are enough to run the program to its full potential.

Simple but comprehensive, that’s how to describe the graphical user interface of the program. The workspace for editing images is very large and a smaller navigation window is provided to have a view on what part of the original image you are editing. The interface makes the program is very easy to use.

As mentioned, the program only performs what it does best and that is to remove unwanted portions of your favorite pictures. After you open the image, you are now ready to erase whatever portion you wanted to by using the eraser tool that’s included in the program. You’ve got plenty of brushes to choose from when you erase; dot (in different sizes), box, polygon and curves.

It also provides a real time view of the result of the edit. The edited portion can be viewed with a facsimile of the exact result of the erasure process. However, the result may differ depending on the size of the deleted portion etc.

PhotoWipe is the software you need to get rid of those unnecessary portions of your most treasured pictures. No matter what type of user you are; advanced or beginner, you can utilize the program’s full benefits. In addition you can have these at no cost at all as the program is free to use!

ImageEnhancer

Wednesday, May 19th, 2010

Most photo and image editing software available today offers incredible tools for enhancing your photo quality; from simple editing of the brightness and color and cropping the image, to more complex tasks like combining multiple images through layers and applying gradients to improve color quality. Often this kind of software comes with endless features you’ll never need to use. If you only need the basics for editing your photos, you don’t need to purchase such expensive tools; ImageEnhancer offers the basic photo editing tools without any costs on your part.

This program provides you the basic tools you need to edit your photos and other images. As a matter of fact, ImageEnhancer only features basic photo editing tools and nothing else. Basic tools mentioned here include brightness, color and contrast adjustments, adding blur in your photos, crop image to change its dimension, image rotation, and reduce the noise content of your photo. Aside from these tools, it supports a variety of image file formats like JPEG, GIF, BMP and many more. You can also set your output to any of those mentioned file formats. Other features like photo slideshow, interactive multi-threading for image slideshows, and removal of red eye can also be utilized using this program.

First of its cons is its user interface, specifically the display of the photo being edited. it only provides a small view of the picture (about 1/8 of the whole window), icons being used were dubious, and the overall design of its user interface is poor. However you are allowed to view edited photo full screen. Other bad thing is that it would take about 3 to 5 seconds before you can see the result of your edit (after to click the preview button). It may take a bit of time before you can get used to the interface but there’s no problem as far as performance is concerned.

All in all, ImageEnhancer is a good image editing software for those users who only needs simple editing of photos. You’ll get used to the user interface after using it a few times. Let’s just hope that the next version will focus on user interface improvements.

Adobe Launches Photoshop Express Public Beta

Thursday, March 27th, 2008

Photoshop Express BetaAdobe Systems Incorporated today announced Adobe Photoshop Express public beta, a free Rich Internet Application (RIA) available to anyone who wants to store, sort and show off digital photos with eye-catching effects. During the public beta period, Adobe will solicit Photoshop Express user feedback on product features and functionality, which will continue to evolve over time. As the newest addition to the Photoshop family line, Photoshop Express has taken much of Adobe’s best image editing technology and made it simple and accessible to a new online audience. Photoshop Express allows users to store up to 2 gigabytes of images online for free, make edits to their photos, and share them online in creative ways, including downloading and uploading photos from popular social networking sites like Facebook.

“Photoshop is trusted technology that has changed the visual landscape of our world. Now, Photoshop Express allows anyone who snaps a digital photo to easily achieve the high-impact results for which Adobe is known,” said Doug Mack, vice president of Consumer and Hosted Solutions at Adobe. “Photoshop Express is a convenient, single destination where you can store, edit and share photos whether you’re at home, school or on the road.”

With Photoshop Express, digital photos can be uploaded and sorted anytime, edited non-destructively to always preserve the original image, and shared from anywhere, on any Web browser. In a few easy clicks, Photoshop Express empowers anyone to make standard edits, such as removing blemishes and red-eye, converting to black and white, cropping and resizing, and much more.

No experience is required to add special effects that will impress friends and family. In keeping with its one-click approach, Photoshop Express offers tricks like Pop Color which selects an object in an image, mutes the background color of the photo and allows the user to swap the object’s color so it jumps off the page. Sketch effects help photos look like drawings and the Distort feature allows you to distort facial features or objects within the images for a comical or artistic effect. Even users with limited photo editing knowledge can simply select what looks best from a line-up of sample photos with visual hints showing different variations of the added effect.

Photoshop Express offers a variety of creative sharing options, including uploading and showing off photos and slideshows in your own online “Gallery” hosted by Adobe, or conveniently embedding or linking photos to social networking sites and personal blogs without having to leave the application. Slideshows never looked better with animation that makes photos float and fly across the screen, allowing for viewer interactivity and unique presentation styles.
