Photo Art Studio is a very handy and powerful image editor and optimizer that enables you to convert, edit and enhance your images with special effects and filters. The best thing about the program is its simple and intuitive user interface, which lets you crop, resize and frame your images in seconds. Though the program does not support pixel-level or multilayer editing features, you can still create imaginative collages and greeting cards using your ordinary photos.
The program also allows you to adjust the brightness and the contrast of your images. Its built-in image previewer helps you to take a look at the resulting image while editing it, and make changes to it accordingly. You can apply more than 100 types of frames, masks and borders to your images using this program, instantly previewing the results. You can also add captions, text and comments to your photos using its captioning tool.
In short, the program has everything you need to enhance your images with the minimum effort. However, the program’s limitations will not allow you to batch-process multiple images, nor apply more professional enhancing effects; however, its simplicity makes it a perfect image optimizer for home users.
