Portable Pixia 4.2a

Printing and retouch application for full color graphics
This is the portable version of Pixia - a software which you can use to edit your favorite image files.

Since installation is not required, you can simply place Portable Pixia on a removable device (like a USB flash drive), plug it into any computer and directly run its executable file.

What's more important is the fact that no changes will be made to your Windows registry entries.

The interface of Portable Pixia is plain and simple. Pictures can be imported via the file browser only, because the "drag and drop" method is not supported.

So, you can select by layer size and convert to a new layer, as well as use a fatten, slim or blur selection tool.

Furthermore, you can fill an image with color, flip, rotate or duplicate it, apply a tone filter, use a magnifying glass and add text.

But you can also adjust the color balance, brightness and contrast, apply automatic adjustment and a negative filter, copy between channels, enable double accuracy and smooth zoom, merge layers and create a blank sheet.

In addition, you can apply various filters (e.g. artistic dither, button, stir, mesh, monotone, half tone, sepia), zoom in and out, specify the zooming ratio, display a ruler and grid, disable the toolbar, status bar and control panel, and more.

The graphic editing tool takes up a moderate-to-high amount of system resources, includes a brief help file with snapshots for beginners and has a very good response time. On the other hand, Portable Pixia crashed every time we tried to open a picture on Windows 7 (we eventually had to make it compatible with Windows XP). Aside from the outdated interface, we recommend Portable Pixia to all users.
