This is a powerful image-editing software that can be used to
add snazzy effects to images. Working with PhotoImpact is easy. We’ve given a
fully functional 30-day trial version of the software on the CD with this issue.

Open up the properties for a particular filter, and change the settings to your likingPhotoImpact
supports all popular image formats such as GIF, JPG, TIF, etc. Most of the
effects can be added from a palette window–called EasyPalette–that appears
when you run PhotoImpact. This contains effect galleries, object libraries, and
a layer manager.

All you need is creativity to add really cool effects to images with this package There
are 13 effect galleries. For example, there’s a lighting gallery that lets you
add different kinds of lighting effects to an image, such as lightning,
fireworks, flashlight, halo, etc. These settings can be fine-tuned further for
softness, bright—ness, distance, amplitude, etc.

The objects library contains images, masks, banners,
outlines, etc. You can superimpose an image on another image and play around
with its size, position, transparency, or even compress it to desired size. The
layer manager in Easy—Palette helps you keep track of what objects you’ve
added to your image.

All you need is creativity to add really cool effects to images with this package The
software has two other components–PhotoImpact Album and GIF Animator. The GIF
Animator tool has a wizard to guide you through the process of adding animation
effects to GIF images. Apart from sequencing frames, you can add effects like
Shadowing, Color balance, Slanting, Fadeout, Lighting, etc. You can get images
directly from a scanner or digital camera. You can also control the number of
frames and delay between them. There’s an optimization wizard to help you
reduce the size of images.

Finally, PhotoImpact Album lets you create various types of
albums to store your pictures. These can be annotated with text as well as
audio. You can also run a slide show with them, synchronized with music, words,
etc.
