PhotoImpact is a sophisticated photo editing and basic web page design program in one. This product comes with royalty free images, web elements, templates and bonus software. PhotoImpact allows beginners to quickly achieve professional-looking results, while providing advanced features so users won't feel limited as they gain experience.

PhotoImpact offers a suite of tools for Web graphics creation, image editing, photo correction and enhancement, drawing and painting, plus plenty of extras for special effects and creative exploration. It comes with a GIF animator, Web component designer, image slicer and optimizer, image browser and organizer, photo album database, panorama photo creator, print layout component, screen capture tool, automation and batch conversion features, and Web page creation tools. At the heart of PhotoImpact is the EasyPalette which includes hundreds (if not thousands) of predefined drag-and-drop effects, styles, objects, textures, and shapes. Any of the presets can be customized, refined, and saved for future use in the EasyPalette.

PhotoImpact is easy and fun to use, but flexible enough to grow with the user. It offers many unique features that aren't available from the competition, such as 3D object manipulation, CD burning, and Web publishing capabilities. It's a terrific all-in-one solution for users who don't require high-end features and commercial output, and its unique offerings and low price make it an attractive companion tool for those who do.

It has been good since 2006 when I purchased Photoimpact XL.

But now it keeps locking up when I try to fill in Time sheet, what has caused this sudden problem? I like the program very much and have used it on XP, Vista & Win 7 for the last 3 to 4 Years, then it suddenly stopped, I have cleaned out and reinstalled, but it still stops and locks the computer.. But it has worked well all this time. How much is the program now?

Just wondering if you've tried changing the compatibility settings, "run as Win XP"? Or trying to run as administrator?
Just curious. The first version I learned on I think was v.5. But I know I was using the latest version of Windows. It was Win 98. Smile
