1-0 out of 5 stars Horrible program!
This may be a sophificated program, but give me a break! I've spent 2 days trying to just enlarge a snap shot to an 8x10 size ( which I was able to do with my eyes closed with the Adobe photo shop home edition 3.0). But when I got a new printer and Windows XP, I couldn't use the old program. I hate this thing!! Shame on you for making it so user unfriendly. I'll try to get my money back,

1-0 out of 5 stars Can we say ... rip-off???!!!
This software bundle is ... easy to use??? HAH!!! Give me a break!!! Compared to my previous program, using Photoshop Elements 2.0 is EXTREMELY hard. And does Adobe say that it's nothing more than a dumbed down version of the hard to use & expensive Adobe Photoshop? Or that crucial features from that never made it into its cheaper brethren? Of course not!!! If you did, you'd never touch it with a 10 ft. poll!!! And what about how Photoshop Album 2.0 isn't compatible with all imaging formats? I found it REALLY odd that was the case. Especially since Photoshop Elements 2.0 is (Somebody was definitely asleep at the switch.)

The way I see it, you can either give me the best, or don't bother giving it to me at all. Don't take a great product like Adobe Photoshop, dumb it down, then offer it to me, because I'll never buy substandard products. In short, don't waste your money. Go for a program like Ulead PhotoImpact XL. It costs about $25 - $30 cheaper, and it does what it advertises. It's also something that was built, from the ground up, to give you the best value for your money. You just don't get that with this software bundle. What a rip-off!!!

1-0 out of 5 stars Too hard
This program is just too time consuming and difficult. Why spend hours and hours trying to do something. The help is not helpful, no support, poor documentation. Big disappointment

5-0 out of 5 stars Photoshop Elements is Outstanding
This software is very well done -- exactly as software should be. The basic features that get you 75% of the way there are completely intuitive, really without using the manual. You can quickly adjust brightness levels of photos, crop, etc.

But behind these simple but powerful starter features are an incredible range of really powerful photo editing tools. I just created an photo party invitation with a picture of our 4 year old and used layers to make it look like the cover of a popular magazine. The help files for the more complex features (texturing, text additions, rotations, etc.) are very clear and easily searched.

This is a "killer app" for photo manipulation, at a great price. I highly recommend it for anyone with a digital camera.

5-0 out of 5 stars Both Album and Elements Good!
I disagree with the previous reviewer that said Photoshop Album included in the Photoshop Elements bundle was bad. I am a new digital camera user, and I have been very impressed by both packages in the bundle. Album uses "Tags" which you can attach to your pictures, making it possible to easily sort your pictures by topic, person, date, event, etc. For example, we recently went to the circus, and I imported my pictures to Photoshop Album, and assigned the tags. So, now I can sort out all of the circus pictures from my other pictures, or can sort by date, or by animals, or by family members who went to the circus. With this kind of power, you don't need to worry about where the files are in your directory! Photoshop Album will do some basic editing, and Elements will do advanced editing, and is very helpful in sizing your pictures for printing. I highly recommend both Photoshop Album and Elements. Well worth the money! ... Read more

Amazon.com Review

By merging Photoshop sophistication with tutorials and newbie helpers--and offering it at a pocketbook-friendly price--Adobe has created a cool tool for digital shutterbugs. Based on Photoshop 6.0, Photoshop Elements trims the most advanced features from Photoshop and replaces them with buckets of user-friendliness.

The interface, which will feel immediately comfortable to Mac users, is full of hints and helpers. By default, the workspace contains a dynamic hints window that displays nuggets of data and links to more detailed help for each tool your mouse cursor passes over. Tabs displayed above the workspace function similarly to pull-down menus: clicking on one opens a window which covers functions such as file browsing, displaying image revision history, applying effects and filters, and so on. Some even act like Windows-style wizard tutorials.

The most wizard-like among these is the Recipes window, which walks users through the software's hundred or so image editing options with step-by-step instructions. Recipes included with the program deal with the most pedestrian of tasks like color correction and image rotating, all the way up to daring endeavors like colorizing black-and-white photos and creating animated GIF files. More recipes are available via download.

Behind all of these simplicity-centric goodies is a powerful and feature-rich image editing program, and it's crammed with every bit of functionality we've come to expect from Adobe. Ready to deal with every image file format one would likely encounter, its layer management is topnotch (even compared to Paint Shop Pro 7). Photoshop Elements is also able to pare image file sizes down and prep them for immediate Web posting, and its real-time, text-on-image editing is second to none.

Granted, the application lacks some of Photoshop's functionality, such as the ability to output files in CMYK format, although it is able to read CMYK files. Alternately, some of its unique features will make Photoshop owners jealous--like the incredibly smooth Photomerge, which creates a single panorama out of a series of overlapping photos.

If you're looking for a comprehensive, intuitive, and affordable photo editor, Elements proves it can play with the best of them. --Joel Durham, Jr. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Has most of the Photoshop power you probably need
I have used Painter 6.0, Painter Classic, Ulead, and a few other image processing packages that are typically bundled along when you buy a scanner or other digital device. So I am not a complete novice at graphics. From what I can tell, Photoshop Elements is not exactly novice-level because I used some previously acquired knowledge to tweak a photo. And I still had to check the help file to figure out a couple of things that weren't obvious. However, it seems a lot simpler than Photoshop full-version and it wasn't all that hard to get started.

You can do dodging, burning, stitching (putting pictures together, such as panorama sequence shots) and equalization with very much ease. The tool set is not hard to use. The adjustments to the brush sizes are quick and easy--just pull down a size palette and adjust your dodging, blurring or other tool in one click.

Most of the features I would normally use are here, plus the ability to do some artsy stuff like converting a picture to a colored-pencil drawing, adding plug-ins (third party software for effects) and more.

If you are willing to put in a bit of time, maybe get an accessory how-to book, I think this software is a pretty good deal. It is probably most of the Photoshop power most people will need unless they go full-bore into digital imaging. For me, it is more than adequate and I really like it.

3-0 out of 5 stars Not user friendly - Must buy some books and study
I have been using MS Photodeluxe for a couple of years now, but it always felt like it was missing something. Everyone said buy Photoshop, but you'll need to take a class on it to understand it (and a loan to pay for the software). Along comes Photoshop Elements with the promise of professional level tools, low cost, and easy to use interface. I jumped on it and unfortunately am a bit disappointed. I will eventually figure it out (after reading some books), but really don't feel it lives up to its hype. The help system is an embarrasment and doesn't follow the standards you see in other windows programs. Within help you can only get basic information. The program was obviously designed for Mac users who spend a lot of time in front of the screen manipulating images. It is not designed for windows users (doesn't follow standard menu layouts) and is not friendly to MS Office applications (ex. Photoshop graphics that have been pasted into Word cannot be edited again in Photoshop... actually they probably can be, but I'm not going to spend another four hours trying to get it to happen). Don't buy it if you are not going to commit a lot of time to learn Adobe products. I thought the days of excessive studying to learn software were over, but Adobe doesn't think so.

4-0 out of 5 stars WARNING: ships configured for Mac
I got this program bundled with a pen tablet and thought "Cool, an upgrade to my PhotoDeluxe". I immediately installed it and used it for about a minute before it crashed. I did a bunch of internet searches (including Adobe's site) to find out if anyone else experienced this...nothing.

Fast forward about six months: I decided to open the program once again and narrowed down the problem to the "eyedropper" or the "color picker". After checking the help menu, there is a tiny paragraph tucked away that says something like "If you're using a Windows machine, change the default Adobe "color picker" to the Windows "color picker". Sure enough, the Abobe color picker was causing the program to crash on my WinXP machine! Seems to me, that there should have been a note somewhere on the outside of the CD warning about this, considering Windows machines are used by at least 80% of the world.

Then...it also took me forever to figure out how to go about outlining objects/selections. Instead of keeping the name "Outline" (like in PhotoDeluxe), Elements changed it to "Stroke" and took it out of the effects list (it's now banished to one of the other drop down menus). Why?

Other than that, it's a great upgrade to PhotoDeluxe that includes a GIF animation maker, a "liquifier" effect (same thing as Kai's "Goo") and tons of other stuff you'll probably never use.

3-0 out of 5 stars Adobe Photoshop Elements
I bought Photoshop Elements about a year ago, after running Adobe PhotoDelux for years. I tried it and did not like it at all. It's much more complex than PhotoDelux and required different commands to do the same operations. I did not want to learn a new photo software editing package. So I stopped using it about a year ago. However, a month ago, I got a new computer (2.8Ghz) running WinXP; unfortunately, XP will NOT run PhotoDelux and Adobe no longer supports it. So I was forced to get out the Photoshop Elements and loaded it on the XP machine. Now I have to learn photo editing all over again. The software runs much faster, which takes some of the pain out of the process, but it is hard to do things that were simple in PhotoDelux. They changed all the keyboard shortcuts (WHY, WHY, WHY did they have to do that??!!!). Some tasks no longer have shortcuts at all and tasks that were one keystroke with PhotoDelux now take many mouse clicks. Some tasks that PhotoDelux did easily, Photoshop Elements does not do at all. For example, it places no free space gutter around pictures, which makes it hard to work on large blow up images at the pixel level. Does not do drop shadows with the shadow as an adjustable layer like PhotoDelux. The list goes on and on. If I had it to do again, I'd probably go with some other software, since I'm having to learn photo editing all over again anyway.

4-0 out of 5 stars Love it
I just got this book and I love it. I don't know why the manuals that come with the programs can't be as informative. I have only read the first two chapters but I have already learned things. The "Oh, yeah" moments, "why didn't I think to do that?" Some of the things I have learned from this book are things I had gone to Adobe's help site and researched without really "getting it". I really recommend this book. It will really help to make using Elements a lot less frustrating. ... Read more

Amazon.com Review

Streamline 4.0 is an excellent bridge between the worlds of freehand drawing and resolution-independent graphics. At its heart, the software is basically a conversion utility, a tool for importingbitmapped (raster) images and exporting them as vector-based line art.But it's a disservice to the application to downplay what is so simplystated.

The value of Streamline becomes apparent after the firstconversion--it quickens the heart to see a hand-drawn, bitmapped imageimported into a program like Adobe Illustrator, where one can tweak thecurve and width of any line, and scale it up until it fills abillboard.

The process starts with a drawing or image being scannedin or photographed with a digital camera and saved out from a programlike Adobe Photoshop. It is then opened in Streamline (it works withmany file types, including native Photoshop) where the image isconverted to vector lines.

The options for conversion are numerous:control point density, smoothness, line width, stroke or fill, curvesmoothing. Additionally, areas of the original image can be selectivelyconverted, with each area using different conversion settings--some forsmoother, thicker lines, some for rougher, more edgy lines, andvariations thereof. Also, Streamline 4.0 now features a "convert to"command, for converting a roughly drawn shape into a standard shape;for example, a crude egg shape on a cocktail napkin could be convertedto a perfect circle, or four rough strokes into a smooth, evenrectangle. Streamline 4.0 also supports converting colors to vector-based areas of color. One can specify the number of colors touse and which color palette would best match.

Adobe-standard keyboardshortcuts improve one's efficiency with the application, and being ableto drag and drop across applications is a handy feature that anyone cangrow to love.

Freehand drawing on a computer is not as easy orstraightforward as taking pencil to paper--a natural quality islacking, a texture more felt than seen. But graphics software offersfeatures not found in "real-life" art, like the ability to scale animage up and down without losing the sharpness of a line. For anyserious digital artist, Streamline is a must-have. It is one of thosetools that is used the least, but appreciated the most. --MikeCaputo ... Read more

4-0 out of 5 stars Useful tool, but could use more support
I purchased this tool for the purpose of scanning camera-ready Native-American artwork for touch-ups and digital prepress, and found it to work wonderfully well. In the two years since purchasing Streamline, however, I have found that the resulting quality degrades quickly with the quality of input. I still feel as though Adobe could have taken this software package one step further and provided a more robust support for conversion and covered a wider range of export options.

I primarily use this product to scan pen or pencil drawings into EPS or AI files for Adobe Illustrator. Works like a charm and is very simple. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Powerful Video Editing
Reviewing a program like Media Edit Pro is a tough slog. Not because of any shortcomings of the program but because it was completely different from what I expected. Perhaps a brief description of the review process is in order. What I review is stuff that interests me, and I'm interested in Movies. So when I saw a press release for Media Edit Pro I thought "Hey, Here's a movie editor more robust than iMovie but cheaper than Final Cut Express, that's something I'd like to try." A couple of e-mails later and I had a copy. I installed Media Edit Pro (which is growing tiresome to type so I'll truncate the title to MEP in future references) with no problems. then I downloaded and installed the update. Still a problem free experience. Found some footage to play with and fired up the program to give MEP it's first test run. Big Problem.

The problem wasn't with the program, it just wasn't what I was expecting. I expected a simple but more robust movie editing program, I was wrong. The program is called Media Edit Pro for a reason and the reason is that MEP is not just a movie editing program (one assumes the author put more thought in the title than I did when I read it) but a full fledged media editing program (hence the text). That means pretty much any media you care to mess with. I only care to mess with video stuff so I'm sticking to the video side, but from the little I know about audio and stills it seems that MEP would be quite capable in that department. Let's hit the easy stufff right now, MEP includes plenty of effects and transitions and you do have complete titling control. But there's more to MEP than being just a beefier copy of iMovie, much more.

Say you want to pull off the effect from the beginning of Saving Private Ryan/ Gladiator. You remember that extra violent fog-o-war feeling. You can't do it with iMovie, it's just not possible out of the box. It's no big trick with MEP. To be honest there's not a lot you can't do to video footage with MEP. You can do titles any way you wish, move the audio around, add a single frame or a thousand, paint. Paint? Did I say paint, let's look back... It appears I did say paint. Well that's okay because you can paint directly on your video using the painting tools. It's a more useful feature than you might think.This might have you wondering "If I can paint, does this mean I can apply other image editing techniques to my movie?" Wonder no longer, the answer is yes. You want to mask the video? No problem. You want to apply an effect to just a region of the movie (you know a specific selected area)? Again no problem. Think of it, you can add cool effects to just, say, half the visible video. People familiar with imaging editing programs will be able to go nutso crazy with the included tools and mere mortals like I can still have a pants load of fun.

How powerful is MEP? I don't know. I know it can handle anything I can throw at it but I only have limited video editing experience. Could a super slick director take MEP to it's limits? I would bet the answer is yes. At least I think they could, you see MEP also includes brush editor to make your own brushes. These aren't just static brushes, these are special cool movie brushes. Even more intriguingly MEP includes something called RBscript. This is well beyond my ability to use but I suspect that in the right hands it could be a very powerful tool. With the ability to script stuff I conclude that MEP is limited more by the user than the program.

The last question to ponder: what do I give up if I ditch iMove and start using MEP? Well, MEP does everything iMovie does as well as plenty of other neat stuff I haven't mentioned (for example: you can set the dimensions of the movie). MEP offers a great deal of creative control and for those of you who don't want to shell for Final Cut Express but need more than iMovie this is the best alternative I've run across. MEP is very powerful, very original and very very cool. In addition to all the aforementioned goodness MEP includes a printed manual (becoming a rarity, but helpful with a program as original as MEP) and a very cool sticker.

5-0 out of 5 stars Easy to use! Nothing I've ever seen
This software is the greatest. I can edit frame by frame or edit entire movies. I love the paint on movie feature--great for rotoscoping! Like I said before, it is nothing I've seen before. ... Read more

4-0 out of 5 stars A step up from Windows Movie Maker2
After reading some of those heavy handed reviews of MediaStudio Pro, I decided to add my comments. Although the program is a bit tricky to learn, once you've mastered the ins and outs it's great. There's a lot of flexibilty for creating FX and transitions, but you may have to read the tutorials and extensive help screens. This is a definite step up from Windows MovieMaker2. It allows you to be much more creative. It's not for those seeking instant editing solutions. It's a great stepping stone from the consumer to real editing world. It also works on my old Pentium II machine! You don't need a $1500 P4 to use this software. It preforms well on windows XP pro. Get the free 'trial' version a judge for yourself.

1-0 out of 5 stars the WORST editor in history
Now, it's rare I hate a single program because I believe
that there is a lot of potential and use in a many apps
around these days, unfortunately this is not the case for
this heinous product. Hate is definitely the apt word I
hold for Media studio pro. It is by far the most frustrating,
confusing, useless video editor on the market today.
How do these people sleep at night by charging so much for
absolute garbage.
People - heed my warning..by VEGAS 5.0 instead. I give that
product a heavy endorsement and thoroughly recommend it to
amatuers and professionals alike. It is simply brilliant
and a dream to use - THE WAY VIDEO EDITORS SHOULD BE.

5-0 out of 5 stars GREAT EDITOR
Its a bit tricky to get a hang of, but this editor is great! You can do just about anything with it that would noramlly cost hundreds more to do on a mac with final cut. It comes with a great video editor, audio editor, and most importantly, video paint. If your film has glistches, or you want to add cool eddfects, such as a lightsaber, or lightning, this is the program to use. Once you get the hang of it, the possibilities are endless!

1-0 out of 5 stars Ulead Media Studio Pro 7.0
I bought it 6 months ago and have yet to produce 1 respectable project. The technical support is non-existant and vague. In fact
I'm attempting another project today and I need updates and patches....ALL the websites are unavailable.
the program itself is WAY too complex and you have to carry out far too many mouse clicks to simply apply and adjust transitions. Transitions are not smooth (Audio & Video).
Ulead says it runs on 98SE,which I originally had, but when I ran into problems, their solution was switch to 2000. I did, it's still finnikey. $450 is now collecting dust. It looks like ADOBE Premiere now! ... Read more

Amazon.com Review

Roxio VideoWave Movie Creator is a great solution for novice videographers looking for a simple and easy way to edit and create video projects. The software eliminates most of the complexities of video editing through an automated approach to video movie creation. VideoWave helps you save hours on your video editing and easily turn home videos into movies on DVD or CD.

VideoWave does a good job of making the video capturing process as simple as possible. It allows you to quickly capture video from a camcorder, capture card, or USB video camera and move it to your hard disk. Once you capture your video, choose from three different editing modes with varying levels of automation--CineMagic, StoryBuilder, and StoryLine Editor. CineMagic mode offers a bit of design assistance by letting you add songs to your videos, but the actual video editing is automatically performed by CineMagic. CineMagic will synchronize the edited video with your music and add visual effects and transitions based on your preferences. CineMagic is a great tool for creating simple music video-style movie clips.

StoryBuilder mode also offers design assistance by guiding you through the entire movie-making process using event-based theme templates. It lets you customize components such as opening and closing animations, and selecting background music. Because StoryBuilder lacks editing tools, don't expect eye-popping results. When you're done with CineMagic and StoryBuilder modes, use StoryLine Editor for additional design work. StoryLine Editor gives you greater design control than other modes. You can edit or enhance all the individual elements that make up the movie, and access a set of easy-to-use editing tools, transitions, text overlays, graphic overlays, and over 100 special effects. However, we found it extremely difficult and confusing to add effects and audio tracks in this mode, and this may turn off some users.

While you won't win any design awards using VideoWave Movie Creator, the results are more than adequate for home users. If you simply want presentable results in a hurry and don't require any advanced video edits, we would recommend this product.--Rich Ting ... Read more

4-0 out of 5 stars Depends on your Situation
Let me elaborate. I'm one of the lucky ones (judging by the other reviews here), who hasn't had any technical problems. Installation, usuage, etc...all fine. That being said, if you CAN take that out of the equation, it is the best editing software I've tried thus far.

Windows Moviemaker stinks comparatively (Gee, no DVD support?!?), and Sonic DVD has less options.

My minor complaints involve not being able to add two text streams in one scene (only one per scene - boooo!), and that you cannot have an entire audio file play throughout the scenes (in other words, you have to splice between scenes, the audio file - a major pain!).

However, on the flipside, you can create your own titles, add your music, credits, etc..for a pretty decent job.

I got it for free via rebates, so I really can't complain. So, would I buy it? Absolutely....

2-0 out of 5 stars Warning: Be aware of the severe limitations before you buy
Like some of the other folks here, I have been disappointed in this software. There are a number of reasons for this:

1. There are so many features that seem oversimplified, incomplete, or non-functional. I could never get even basic functions of the storyline editor to work. For example, I wanted to simply get a DVD with different chapters to play continuously, and I couldn't do that. When I would play a movie made with the storyline editor on my DVD player, it would constantly quit in the middle of the DVD and return to the menu. I still have no idea how to perform this basic function.

2. Technical support stinks. I have to pay for support after one month? Who came up with that idea? Way to show your enthusiasm for your product.

3. But the biggest reason is that there is only one DVD write quality setting. You simply can't fit more than 55 minutes worth of movie onto a DVD. Even then, it is discernably lower quality than the HQ setting on a DVD recorder. If you want the quality of satellite or digital cable, you are NOT going to get it with this software. This means that the software is inferior for most applications.

After doing some market searching, it appears that the basic features of this program are typical of this price range, so I can't say that you will find a product that is a lot better. But that doesn't excuse the misleading advertising: "Copy all of your movies to DVD!" Yeah right. If you don't mind your 4-hour event being split up onto 4 different DVD's. The home movie studio market does a TERRIBLE job of educating consumers about this.

I finally broke down and bought a Sony DVD Recorder. It was a lot more money, but I needed it for what I was trying to do, which is to capture broadcasts and create DVD's of my favorite sports teams. If you want to do something like this, then you can't use Video Wave Movie Creator to do it.

5-0 out of 5 stars Correction
Responce to David Roberts-
Try getting a better computer that can support such software, such as an Alienware, as opposed to a Dell (which, by the way, exports almost all of it's jobs to india).

5-0 out of 5 stars Excellent Video Editing Software
Works exactly as described. This is a statement which have rarely been able to make with respect to any software I have purchased. I have never written a product review but I am just so pleased with this software that I felt compelled to do so. I bought this product in order to make short videos using my digital camera and Dell desktop. I recently completed an 8 minute project showing students on a variety of field trips. It was great fun to make the video and it came out looking very professional.

It was simple to import the video. The video quality is excellent. The software cut the video into scenes which made it very easy to edit. The editing process was a simple point and click affair. I used three levels of sound (music, voice over and the original audio from the tapes). I was very happy with the music provided in the product. There was a little tweaking needed to get all the levels right but it was very easy to do. I used all sorts of music which really added to the final video. There were plenty of transitions to choose from and they were easily customizable. It was easy to set up the DVD screen and to burn the DVDs.

I have been making videos like this on and off for years. This software allows me to make better videos, in a shorter amount of time, than I was able to make using professional quality equipment ten years ago. It takes time to make a good video but this software gives you all the tools and works exactly as described.

1-0 out of 5 stars Don't Buy. Poor.
Received this program as part of a Dell package. Software worked adequately for simple music videos. I also made several "slide shows" using pictures and audio. Unfortunately after a few weeks the program quit working completely. Uninstalling and reinstalling did not help and customer support is non-existant. Don't buy. ... Read more

2-0 out of 5 stars Despite the Hype, FCP 4 is a Step Down for Many Power Users
Unfortunately, several time-saving, creativity-enhancing features that I was accoustomed to in FCP 3 were removed for FCP 4. Functional draft renders, my favorite (albeit flawed) feature from FCP 3 no longer exist. This is quite an area of debate, but experienced editors should see why the new (largely useless) rendering system is far inferior to the previous one. The life-saving Shift-F function is also gone, the new "automatic" capturing system makes file management horribly inconvenient, and the online help file has been replaced with a cumbersome .pdf document. Support for Adobe Photoshop files is still poorly implemented. The bundled LiveType program is also much more awkward to use than one might expect from how it's been marketed. (LiveType is not an integrated extension of FCP, but a completely separate--and SLOW--application.) At this point, I feel I am a less efficient editor for having made this upgrade. Why Apple could not build on what they had instead of dropping helpful features is beyond me.

5-0 out of 5 stars Regardless of what you hear...
I have been editing for 20 years. FCP on a Dual 2.0 Ghz G5 is the best editing solution for the money I have ever seen. It blows away the $75k+ systems that I have used for less than a tenth of the price. FCP at less than $1,000 and a G5 at $$$$$$$ is all you need other than a camera. You can make broadcast quality video with this simple setup. $$$$$$$ for computer and software plus $$$$$$ for a camera that will hold up to a $$$$$$$Betacam... give me a break!!

5-0 out of 5 stars Don┬┐t waste your money
Apple is quickly loosing market share to Avid and vegas ,and this is a quickly produced solution. Final cut follows with the standard Apple policy of falling several years behind the competition and then jumping 6 months ahead only to fall behind with no upgrades for years. After spending several weeks using this program I have gone back to Avid

My recommendation is to stay away from final cut and all apple products. For the same price as this you could buy a PC and Vegas 4.0

3-0 out of 5 stars Sorry but it's got more bugs than FCP 3.04
It's true, it has more new features and is a world beater as
far as other editing apps BUT FCP 3.0 is still the biggest
bang for buck simply because it has fewer bugs. While I
believe FCP 4.0 is probably two to three thousand dollars
worth of software combined in one package....it still needs
work. If you are running anything lower than OS X 10.2.5
you will also need to upgrade the OS and Quicktime as well.
My advice is: if you do not own FCP 3.0 then go ahead and
purchase FCP 4.0 because you'll be able to upgrade as soon
as Apple puts out 4.x etc. If you have FCP 3.0 then you might
want to wait until 4.x hits the shelves (assuming it does as
opposed to being a download). As an active editor I am forced
to wait rather than causing a lot of back-ups to safeguard
client's files. Regardless of all this, FCP is still King of Cuts.
For more information cruise the FCP forums and discussion
lists.

5-0 out of 5 stars THE BEST OF THE BEST
Final cut pro 4.0 adds a lot of useful features that the version 3 didnt have. This includes soundtrack (create ur own music for royalty free use) and a new title maker that adds animations to your titles. With this a new compression program to make your movies for DVD and a lot of bug fixes from version 3, why would u want any other editing program. I know $1000 sounds a lot, but if you have the cash, this program is better than anything else, that includes those $15,000+ editing workstations as well. Simply put= THE BEST MONEY CAN BUY ...

Amazon.com Review

Picture It! is a friendly photo editing program that makes it easy to transfer pictures onto your PC from either a digital camera or scanner and then edit them.The editing facilities are surprisingly powerful, too. Aside from bread-and-butter features like being able to remove redeye and adjust the brightness, contrast, and sharpness, you can apply a wide selection of filters to transform your photos into realistic works of art. Unlike many programs, if you pick the right photo, the results are realistic and the quality of the effect is excellent.

Picture It! also makes it easy to cut out a section of a picture to use in another photo. You can also add text, format it as you would with a word processor, and then apply textures, rotate it, increase the size, and so on. As you add new elements to a photo, the program displays each one in a stack at the right of the screen. Because each item in the stack occupies its own layer, it can be moved in front of or behind other layers to create interesting effects.

Budding artists will appreciate the simple drawing features that allow users to embellish photos, while those with no artistic talent get a wide range of predrawn shapes and colourful photo-quality stamps that can be pressed into service.

There are some clever batch processing features where you can, for example, rename an entire folder of photos with a single title and have Picture It! automatically add an identifying number after each one. Similarly, the Mini Lab lets you adjust the balance, colour, contrast, tint, and size of a number of photos at the same time.

Picture It! Photo Standard conceals considerable functionality beneath its friendly face and is a good choice for home use. --Rob Beattie ... Read more

3-0 out of 5 stars An OK Program
For the price...Picture It! is a suitable program that works well for the beginner.

There are few, if any, bells and whistles on it. For somebody who is just starting photo editing, that could be a plus: You have basic cropping and red eye reduction features.

The low points are that the selections of what you can do with the photos is severely limited: you can change a color photo into black and white or give it an antique look. This is nothing special as most digital cameras (see Hewlett Packard) come with software you can load that perform this trick. The antique look isn't sepia, just a washed out affair that makes you wonder why they even bothered giving it to you.

Picture It! came with my version of PUBLISHER, which happens to be an excellent program. So, if you got it as an add-on, explore it and learn the basics before you move onto a more sophisticated program. If your digital camera came with software for photo editing and printing, you'd probably be better off using that. This isn't a bad program - just one that does little but waste disk space.

4-0 out of 5 stars Simple and does what I want!
I haven't used this software before this version (so will not comment on lost functionality from prior versions). I had previously used Adobe software. Anyway, I had wanted a photo editing program that was simple and not cluttered with tools that I didn't need. I also didn't need to pay for another program that created albums, etc.

My primary needs was corrections of photos from my Canon S40 digital camera. Since I use XP, I didn't need anything beyond:
* red eye removal - this program does a great job at fixing this.
* white balance correction - this program also does a great job at this.
* general levels correction - this program allows you to simply click one button and allow it to automatically correct the photos. I use this when I am somewhat lazy, but honestly it is pretty much all I need for most of my photos. You can also manually adjust contrast, etc. but you don't need to.

If you are like me - that is a person who needs a program that does some simple photo corrections on a program that is intuitively set out (thereby requiring no manual reading or prior editing knowledge), then this is the program for you. This program also installs easily and doesn't clutter up anything on my PC.
The main competition for this program is probably Adobe Photoshop Elements, although I think that program can do a lot more. The downside of that program is that it costs more, is more complicated and is not as intuitive to use. Actually, Adobe Photo Deluxe is more on par with this program, but Adobe stopped selling it mid 2002.

5-0 out of 5 stars A Loyal PictureIt User
I know people who spent a fortune on programs like Adobe Photoshop because they wanted "the best." But they end up using PictureIt! because it's just plain easier. Unless you're a professional graphic designer, you'll find that this program meets all your needs, and most importantly, it's EASY! I've used PictureIt! it since 2000 and it makes short work of scanning from digital cameras, cropping and adjusting photos, fixing red eye, compressing photos for the web, or creating fun projects like greeting cards. Can't recommend it enough.

2-0 out of 5 stars Buyer beware
Have used Picture it for years and loved every version a little more with each version, until now. The Picture It Photo Premium in high tech terms [is bad]. Looks good, installs well. But it lacks a lot of the standard flexiblity in previous versions. I was expecting a lot more and got a lot less!!!

2-0 out of 5 stars Frustrating
My new computer came with Picture It! I was used to using Addobe PhotoDeluxe, but you can't get it anymore. So, I decided to give Picture It! a try. Right from the beginning I was frustrated. The tools and commands are easy to use, but I had trouble saving my work. I tried over and over again to save and my system kept freezing. I lost 3 hours of work on the first night. Then I tried reinstalling the program. That helped, but I still kept getting "runtime error, abnormal program termination." I lost more work. I have also not been able to perform touchups with the "freehand painting" the way I want. For some reason, despite everything I try, I cannot get ANY tool or ANY custom painting options to give me a sharp, crisp line. All my painting looks blurry and airbrushed. I have tried my computer manufacturers support but they could not help. I am now trying Microsoft's help, but after several days of correspondence, they have not been able to help either. I've decided to dump Picture It! and see if I can get an old copy of Adobe PhotoDeluxe from ebay. ... Read more
