PhotoEditorX Review

Hi everyone! I just came across an interesting image program that I thought I would review. I haven't been updating this blog as often as I should lately, and I thought it would be a nice idea to try this program out and talk a little bit about it. Apparently it's rather popular. This program is called PhotoEditorX, so this is my PhotoEditorX review. =)

So what exactly is PhotoEditorX? The name sort of gives it away. PhotoEditorX is an image editing program. Image editing is fairly common now a days. A lot of people own Digital Cameras, and a lot of people like to edit their images.

I went ahead and downloaded and installed PhotoEditorX. It was thankfully a rather easy download and installation. So let's get right to the program itself!

Upon opening the program, I was a bit overwhelmed by all the windows that loaded. However, I have used other image programs before, and I was able to quickly get a hang of PhotoEditorX and I was able to figure out what did what. It seems fairly easy to use, even for beginners.

I spent a bit of time playing around with PhotoEditorX. I used some of my digital images, and also a couple pictures I downloaded off the web. I played around with some of the effects like Red Eye Removal, Changing Colors of the image, background removal, motion blur, etc. All of the effects worked very well and were easy to use.

I also spent some time with some of the other features included in PhotoEditorX such as creating animations, using layers, and messing with transparent images. Again, like before, it all worked fairly well.

In all, I really like PhotoEditorX. For the past few years, I have used Paint Shop Pro for photo editing, but I honestly think I like PhotoEditorX more. It works just as well as Paint Shop Pro, yet it has a good price. Highly recommended!

One thing I like about PhotoEditorX is that it comes with a huge guide as to how to go about using the program.

WiseFixer Review

Hey everyone! Back for another review. =). For this post, I decided to review this software utility program called Wisefixer. It's been a few weeks since I've reviewed any programs on this blog, so let's get right to this Wisefixer review!

What exactly is WiseFixer? As I previously said, it is a software utility program. Basically, it is a program designed to help you increase your computer speed and perform basic computer maintenance. This can be done through Registry Cleaners, Disk Cleanups, etc. These type of programs are very common. I have actually reviewed a lot of similar programs in the past. I came across WiseFixer last night thought and I thought it looked interesting. I was surprised I hadn't heard of it before in all honesty.

Anyway, I went ahead and downloaded and installed WiseFixer. The download was fairly small and the installation was painless. So let's open up Wisefixer and take a look at it!

Upon loading WiseFixer, I first took a look at the interface and it looks pretty good. The tools are all listed on the left, and it's easy to access the various tools that you may want to use on your PC.

I looked through some of the tools that are included with WiseFixer and I'm really impressed by it. Some of these tools I've literally never seen in a system utility program before. There are the usual tools like a Registry Cleaner, Disk Cleanup, Startup Manager, File Shredder, BHO Manager, etc. But there is also tools like the File Joiner/File Splitter. This helps in splitting or rejoining large files. I've always had to use a separate program to do this. It's nice to see that something like this is included with WiseFixer.

Besides the tools I listed, some of the other tools that come with WiseFixer include An ActiveX Blocker, Shortcuts Cleaner, and Program Uninstaller. The ActiveX Blocker is really nice, because it helps block harmful ActiveX Plugins that may contain spyware. Some websites often try to install these ActiveX plugins when you are on their website. Blocking these harmful ActiveX items is a great way to protect yourself from spyware. Definitely nice to see this included with WiseFixer.

In all, I really like WiseFixer. The list of tools is nice. If you make sure to use this program regularly, you can do a great job at keeping you computer up to speed, getting rid of junk files, and even keeping harmful ActiveX items away from your computer. Highly recommended!

XComTools Review

Hey everyone! For this post, I decided to do a review of this system utilities suite called XComTools. As my regular readers know, I often review software related to your computer and keeping it running up to speed. XComTools is another such program that claims to help you with that task. So with that, I decided to try out XComTools and give you an XComTools Review.

So what is XComTools? Like I mentioned, it is basically software designed to help you keep your computer up to speed. System utility programs and registry cleaners are very popular today. I myself have tried out a lot of them. So going into this, it's going to take a lot to impress me.... but I'm going to go ahead and try it anyway. :)

I went ahead and downloaded and installed XComTools. The download was just under 5MB, so it's a very quick download. The installation itself was also painless. So with that, let's get right to the software!

I opened XComTools and I was taken to the main screen. The look of the program itself is impressive. It looks very professional and all of the various tools included in this program are easy to access. Right after I opened XComTools, it began scanning my computer for errors. While most users will appreciate this, I went ahead and hit cancel because I wanted to look at all of the tools that came with XComTools. I must say, XComTools has a LOT of tools.

Based on a quick look, I saw the following tools: Registry Cleaner, Junk File Cleaner, Evidence Cleaner, Duplicate Cleaner, Shortcut Cleaner, Windows Repair, IE Repair, System Repair, Shortcuts Repair, File Association Repair, System Optimizer, Disk Defragger, Registry Defragger, Uninstall Manager, ActiveX Blocker, File Shredder, Memory Optimizer, Startup Manager, System Speedup, Internet Optimizer, Registry Backup, and Driver Backup.

Clearly there is a lot of tools with XComTools and it might look like it's easy to get overwhelmed. However, when you click on each tool, there is a description as to what this tool does. You can go through each individual tool and figure out which ones you feel you should run for your computer. It's a pretty simple process and even those who are new to computers shouldn't have a problem with using XComTools.

When it comes to the tools themselves, they all performed very well for me. The memory optimizer is especially nice. Many people just assume that they need more RAM for their computer. However, using something as simple as this memory optimizer tool can really help with your computer RAM. But overall though, all of the tools are great.

In all, I highly recommend that my readers check out this software. It may be the best system utility program that I have come across. If you have any interest at all in speeding up your computer, then definitely give this software a try.

Good luck!
