editor's review




Image editing applications can come in handy when you want to add some finishing touches to a picture. PictBear keeps this simple, inviting people of all ages to take advantage of what it has to offer.

Lightweight and easy to use

From the first time you run the application you will feel that you have been using it since the beginning of time. Functions to edit or create whole new images are shown in small icons, making the available workspace large enough to suit any needs. Everything is cleverly organized, either in tabs or menus, being easy to navigate through.

Multiple projects can be opened at the same time, each one placed in its own separate window. When you consider work is done, you can save it in various file types, making it meet even the most uncommon requirements.

Large variety of options to work with

From the most simple drawing functions, such as lines and brushes, PictBear also offers the possibility to add effects to give your pictures a special look. Color picking can either be done by selecting samples, to save some time, or reach the perfect tone through RGB sliders.

There are also two types of brushes to choose from, one with faded contour and one fully filled however, both have preset size leaving you unable to closely adjust them. In addition, multiple layers can be used, each with its own modifiable transparency level. These can be ordered, made visible and even merged to form a single image.

To end with

Taking everything into consideration, we can say that PictBear offers professional image editing tools compressed into a user friendly package. It can be used by experienced people or by rookies alike, because you will only need a few minutes to get the hang of it. With such a large variety of options at your disposal, it is difficult not to spent some time trying to get the best out of pictures you might find on your computer or even create your own masterpiece.
