PhotoFiltre 7 – An Image Editor with An Easy Learning Curve

January 12, 2012

I don’t know about you, but I do not have the patient or attention span to learn PhotoShop. Several years ago, as a result of my impatience and my learning deficit, I needed to find an image editing program that I could catch on quickly and get the job done. This is when I found PhotoFiltre; AND, to this day it is my editor program of choice. PhotoFiltre is no PhotoShop by any means, but let me tell you this program rocks; especially with this new release.

This week I learned that PhotoFiltre 7 was recently released and the good with this release is two things.

  1. PhotoFiltre 7 has been developed with the core components that is in the advanced commercial version (PhotoFiltre Studio), minus a few attributes.  PhotoFiltre 7 now supports layers with improvement to the filters.
  2. PhotoFiltre 7 is available as full install (with a setup file) or you can download the portable version which gives you the ability to carry PhotoFiltre on your flash drive.

PhotoFiltre 7

PhotoFiltre 7 is a complete image retouching program. It allows you to do simple or advanced adjustments to an image and apply a vast range of filters on it. It is simple and intuitive to use, and has an easy learning curve. The toolbar, giving you access to the standard filters with just a few clicks, gives PhotoFiltre 7 a robust look. PhotoFiltre 7 also has layer manager (with Alpha channel), advanced brushes, batch module and lot of other powerful tools.

With the power of your computer you can take a personal photo and convert into a beautiful painting, sketch or drawing using FREE software called FotoSketcher.

FotoSketcher can either be installed on your computer or used as a portable app on your flash drive. The software is automated and very easy to use. Simply open a photo you desire to convert, select the drawing parameters, and click on “DRAW”. Watch FotoSketcher perform the magic right before your eyes.

FotoSketcher

Different styles are available: pencil sketch, pen and ink drawing, various painting renderings. You can also improve your original photo with simple tools (enhance contrast, sharpen, simplify image, increase luminosity, color saturation, add text, frames, etc…).

FotoSketcher

To demonstrate the power of FotoSketcher, reflected is a photo of a Ford 8N Tractor that my Father recently restored; AND, the same photo converted to a sketch, oil painting and cartoon.

The 8N Ford Tractor debuted in 1947, a largely new machine featuring more power and an improved transmission which proved to be the most popular farm tractor of all time in North America. – [Source: Wikipedia]
