Photo Effect Studio
Photo Effect Studio is a software designed to help you transform your pictures into works of art, by providing you with some simple tools.
The interface of Photo Effect Studio is plain and intuitive. You can open an image by using the file browser only, since the "drag and drop" method is not supported (and neither is batch processing), or you can simply use the sample picture.
So, you can convert an image to black and white (pencil or pen sketch, kryptol, pen and ink) or color (pencil, realism, pop art, abstract, water color, brume).
But you can also adjust a color panel and HSL, set up a color filter and color variety, apply effects (emboss, texture, stria) and change the size of the image, as well as use the undo and redo functions.
The simplistic application needs a pretty low amount of system resources in order to function, can guide you to a brief online help file with examples, has a very good response time and didn't freeze, crash or pop up errors during our tests.
On the other hand, the range of features offered by Photo Effect Studio is pretty limited. Plus, the tool doesn't support keyboard shortcuts (which can be particularly painful when using the undo and redo functions) and doesn't allow you to view changes as you apply them. We recommend Photo Effect Studio with reservations.
