dotTech Advice

Serif PhotoPlus 10 is over five years old. I am sure back when it debuted it was cutting edge but today it is not. That is not to say Serif PhotoPlus is bad; it isn’t bad — it will run circles around Microsoft Paint. However, by today’s standards I put Serif PhotoPlus on par with Paint.NET, a freeware photo editing tool. The only real advantage I see with Serif PhotoPlus over the leading freeware photo editors is the fact that Serif PhotoPlus handles Photoshop files (.PSD) well; most freeware photo editors don’t fair so well with .PSD files.

If you are a professional do yourself a favor and stay clear of Serif PhotoPlus 10; you will only be shortchanging your work by using a 5+ year old program. If you are an amateur who needs an image editor for those few times you need to edit images, Serif PhotoPlus 10 is a viable candidate. Personally speaking, I have been a Paint.NET user for a long time (I am an amateur) but will now be using Serif PhotoPlus 10 because of its .PSD support.

Freebie Details

Serif PhotoPlus 10 is being given away in a promotion run by What Digital Camera [2]. There is no information on if it is time limited offer nor is there information on if you can install/reinstall at a later date. My guess, however, is this is a time limited offer, hence why I marked this as a limited time offer in the title; I just don’t know how long this will be available. So grab this while you can, if you want it.
