An Edit in Photoscapes X

This blog was released on August 15th 2020 and that week I posted a variety of posts every day before switching to weekly posts. One of those posts, published on August 21st, was on mobile editing apps.

I came across PhotoScape X in the comments for that post by mgadams1970. I have been working with all of the programs he recommended but wanted to do a post on PhotoScape X.

For this blog post I used the free version of this editing program. I am going to show you 3 different photos that I edited in the software below from simple to more complex editing.

  1. This first photo was just edited to bring out the colors in the photo. I did notice when the photos are side by side there is a slight change in the photos angle when moving the slider even though I have not cropped or adjusted the photos angle. I definitely have found that this sometimes happens with free photo editors.
First photo is unedited and second is with edits.

2. For this second photo I went into more complex edits. This reflection edit was cool to try out. as you can see, you can add an artificial reflection to a photo. I think that that is a pretty cool feature to try!

3. Below I have the final photo edit. In Photoscapes X you can create 3d objects and so after doing some color editing on the photo I turned the photo into a 3d canvas. This is another awesome feature that was really fun and cool to try out!

Pros & Cons of Photoscapes X Free Version

Notes:

  • Needs Windows 7 at very least to run. (not a problem for most users though)
  • Can download through Microsoft store if wanted (I downloaded from x.photoscape.org)
  • I ran this on windows but according to the editors website you can get this on a mac computer as well. 🙂

Pros:

  • It is free
  • Has some really nice color and detail editing like you would have in an adobe editor.
  • Cool 3d effects.
  • I use a Samsung laptop and the program runs nicely on Windows 10.
  • Has quick load times
  • Nice auto edit.
  • Easy to go between original photo and edited photo
  • Pro version is $40 (other “pro” editors can be more expensive)
  • Cool lighting effects
  • There are tons of features to use in this editor!

Cons:

  • Some auto edits take considerably longer than in other editing programs.
  • Cropping must be done by typing in measurements and not with drag.
  • Slight difference in the photos angle after doing edits.

I found this editor pretty fun to use. There are certainly some unique features in this editor which I found super cool. In the edits above I really didn’t go too in-depth with them. You can definitely do more complicated edits but you may be held back without a pro version. If you like what this editor offers then I think it would be great to use as a main editor but the features that it has certainly wouldn’t make me pay for the premium version over my current editor. In the last post I did use it for a photo filter so it is definitely worth the download!

Thank you so much for reading this post! I hope you found this useful! I would love to hear about other editors in the comments because I really do love knowing about them! I have used your suggestions in a collection of posts on editing and have found it very useful! Thanks again for reading!

    1. That is really cool. I am so glad that I was introduced to the software because it has some awesome unique features! It is good to know that cropping can be done without measurements, I am using Windows but I am sure that I just missed it. Thank you and Happy Holidays John!

      1. You are welcome, perhaps it’s done that way oon a Windows system, I don’t know. Compared to the other two applications I use, Photoscape X never crashes or acts stupid. A very stable platform!
