  • Picture Window Pro

    Anyone here have any experience with Picture Window Pro? From the extensive tutorials and detailed examples and essays at the link below, this $89 program looks like it has many many features that I certainly do not see in PSE (even with Hidden Tools) and not in PSP8. I do not have PS7, but if all of the capabilities are the same but the former is almost 10x the price of the latter, what am I missing in the logic of which to get?

    Something must be missing from this story.

    Any comments from experienced folks?

    It's been awhile since I reviewed it, and it's probably much more advance now. But I recall it as having a lot of nice features, but not supporting layers or alpha channels, which pretty much kills it for most photo work.

    Here's my original review, which, as I said, is probably very dated now.

      There are people in the CompuServe photography forums that use it. You might want to ask over there.

        Picture Window Pro 3.5

        I am fairly new to processing digital photos. I got Photoshop Elements in May and have been slogging through the manual and one other book. A few weeks ago I downloaded the evaulation copy of PWP3.1. I also downloaded the manual. I used it for a week and bought the new PWP3.5. I like it and will probably stick with it.

        It isn't Photoshop and isn't intended to be. In fact, some of the complaints in the review I read were that it doesn't use Photoshop plugins or accept Photoshop file format. It also complained that there were no layers but PWP uses masks. Simply a different paradigm.

        If you want to produce quality photos I think PWP works fine. If you want to creat graphic arts stick with Photoshop.
