Transform your photos with this slick image editor

PhotoPlus SE allows you to alter and customize your photographs in an easy-to-use format for photo-editing beginners and advanced users alike.

When you install PhotoPlus SE, the program requires you to fill in a form in order to receive a free registration key. Once registered, you gain access to a myriad of basic photo-editing features, such as red-eye reduction and quick fixes such as adjustments to a photo's brightness, contrast, and sharpness. There are also various effects in PhotoPlus SE you can play around with, like increasing blurriness, sharpening, and a distortion feature. In addition, users can work with layers to add more effects to their pictures.

Unfortunately, PhotoPlus SE's most advanced and desirable features are restricted to the paid version of the program. This includes their various tutorials. PhotoPlus SE is consequently a good program for photo-editing beginners, but more advanced users may find the features a bit lacking as a result.

Overall, PhotoPlus SE is relatively easy to navigate and use, making it a good choice for novices or those wanting a good introduction to photo retouching. Those with a more advanced background might want to try other programs, like PhotoFiltre, Paint Shop Pro, or PhotoShop.

PhotoPlus SE offers an easily-navigable interface and a good variety of options, though only for non-advanced users.
