Photo Effects review

Over 400 effects for seven quid sounds like a bargain but there are two caveats. The first is that over half of them are animated so they’re aimed at either video clips or turning still images into video clips. The second is that the effects browser, which showcases what they all do, displays four effects per page, on 101 separate pages.

There are no categories to choose from – the effects are listed alphabetically – so to see what anything does, you have to go through each screen. Things aren’t helped by the slow interface.

There are basic colour, distortion and graphical effects in the static image side. Some of the effects are fairly subtle, sometimes too subtle to actually see any change because you can’t zoom in to the image either.

One of the better effects but it doesn’t offer adjustable parameters or zoom

OUR VERDICT

There are some good filter effects, like the pointillism effects and the old world film styling, but, boy, is it an effort to find them.
