Elfin Photo Editor
Elfin Photo Editor is a program which comes equipped with some easy-to-use tools for graphic editing.
The interface of the application is familiar and easy to navigate through. You can import images via the file browser only, because the "drag and drop" method is not supported.
So, you can resize, rotate, flip and crop pictures, as well as adjust image settings (e.g. brightness, contrast, hue, saturation, color balance).
Moreover, you can apply effects which focus on color (e.g. olive, negative, grayscale), art (e.g. soft light, sketch, poster), deform (mirror, merge, layout), magic recovery and frames.
In addition, you can resize, rotate, convert and rename images in batch mode, check out a comparative window between the “before” and “after” photograph, use the undo and redo functions, and more.
The graphic editing tools takes up a low-to-moderate amount of system resources, includes a well-written help file with snapshots and has a very good response time. No errors have popped up during our tests and Elfin Photo Editor did not freeze or crash.
All in all, Elfin Photo Editor is a very good program for editing images. It may not be as complex as other well-known similar software, but it is stable and gets the job done without demanding too much from your computer. We strongly recommend it to all users, especially novices.
