Powerful photo editor and digital art tool

PhotoImpact X3 is a powerful photo editor and photographic art tool which is perfect for users who want the seriousness of Photoshop, but with a slightly less professional aim.

By that, we mean people who are serious about their photos, but instead of wanting to produce graphic material for commercial ends, are looking for a program that will allow them to make stunning personal projects like greetings cards, collages and comic strips. PhotoImpact X3 is that program.Given that it is a serious piece of software, PhotoImpact X3 needs a little bit of study before you can get the most out of it. It comes with good support material, however, including a getting started wizard, complete help files and online support, so you'll never be stuck.

Where PhotoImpact X3 falls short is in the area of appearance. It looks old-fashioned, and when we downloaded the test version, we actually initially suspected that we had downloaded an out-of-date predecessor. It turned out that we hadn't, but it gives you an idea of how clunky PhotoImpact X3 looks!

It's lucky then, that PhotoImpact X3, does well in the technical terms. It offers all the tools you'll need for getting the most out of your photos, including an ExpressFix tab where you can apply - and compare - a variety of quick-fixes. In the full edit area, you'll be able to perform more thorough fixes and edits, as well as creating images from scratch or fashioning lovely greetings cards, calendars and other artistic projects.

If you like Photoshop, but don't need the extras or the price, check out PhotoImpact X3 - it's impressive.
