Very basic, perhaps too much so

I liked the clear, attractive user interface. Everything seemed easy to find, and fairly intuitive for this type of program.

The functionality is very basic, and tends to do things for the user to avoid asking questions that might intimidate novices. The prime example of this is automatically saving photos on opening new ones when changes are made. This seems designed for someone who doesn't know much about computers, but does want to be able to work with photos from a digital camera. However, I still think they should have made it save the changes in a copy of the photo instead of the original.

There are lots of alternatives in this space, some of which are free, and many of which offer more control. For someone who is very new to computers, this might be a good choice. For more advanced users, I'd recommend checking out some of the other choices to see if they might better fit your needs.

This is a good program for the following tasks, which includes: Creating a card, calendar, photobook, a slideshow, photobook and even a disc back-up. This program has the ability to fix the red-eye and crop a photo. It also can upload a photo to Facebook, Flickr and other websites. While it is not as in-depth as other similar programs, it is fairly simple to use and has a friendly interface which will be suitable for most users.

Let me start with …
