It’s free, it’s easy…anyone can ‘optimize’ or manipulate any image with it.
The software works with every Windows OS. No special talent required…it’s nothing like Photoshop…or Lightroom. It has a limited number of adjustments and some presets, like instagram.
The controls are simple…an explorer to open the images, crop, rotate, contrast and brightness and change width or height of the image in the top row to the right of the image. Below that the presets (I applied “Rainbow”) and below that, there are the ‘depth of field’ which will apply a vignette in an oval or square both dark, one lighter than the other. No light or feathered vignettes. Then there’s the ‘Frame type’ and there are seven (a fair selection).
Then you can choose to overwrite the old files and use predefined frames.
As I said, Ps and Lr it isn’t, but free it is and if you don’t know how to create effects for images, it’s fine.
