Photo Art Studio is a simple image enhancer suitable for all types of users, though clearly aimed at those who enjoy one-click adjustments rather than cryptic editing functions. You are offered a wide variety of templates to frame and embellish your favorite shots, as well as simple editing tools (referred to as effects and filters) to perform minor lighting and exposure corrections.
Both the interface and the functionality offered by the program are clear, simple, and intuitive. All the functions available are within easy reach without leaving the main interface, all neatly organized into various oversized buttons. Effects and Filters are far from being the type of effects and filters you usually find in similar tools – they are merely a set of sliders that will help you perform small corrections on your photographs regarding lighting, contrast, hue, saturation, exposure, etc., or to rotate and crop your shots. Actually, Effects cover nearly everything from frames to clip art. The Effects Browser is where most of the fun is – here you will find borders, frames, collages, clip art, captions, and a useful set of auto-enhance profiles that will improve your photographs in various ways with just one click.
Being such a simple tool, you are very much advised to wander around the different sets of profiles and functions and apply as many filters, effects, and borders as wished. The results may not be of a professional standard, but they will surely add a different angle to your photographs.
