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.
- 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.
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
- 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. 🙂
- 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!
- 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!
