Photo Pos Pro

If you don't need all of the power of GIMP but you still want plenty of photo editing tools, give Photo Pos Pro a whirl.

This freeware was once a for-pay product, and like GIMP, it's quite capable - but unlike GIMP, it's also easy to use.

It sports a straightforward, simple interface that entails no learning curve. Your photo takes up most of the main screen; arrayed around it are a wide assortment of editing tools, each with its own icon.

To see what an icon does, you can hover your mouse over it to bring up a balloon tip explaining its function.

In many cases, though, you won't even need to do that, because the icons are generally self-explanatory.

Name an editing tool, and Photo Pos Pro most likely has it.

The program offers red-eye reduction, of course, as well as automated tools for sharpening or blurring images, making pictures warmer or cooler, and adding frames and special effects.

You'll also find drawing tools, and if you're comfortable with working in layers, you can do that as well.

Note that when you install the program, it attempts to set your home page to mystart.com. If you don't want that to happen, make sure to uncheck the box next to that item. Also, the installation process takes quite some time.

STYLISTIC Q702

First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.

STYLISTIC Q572

For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.

LIFEBOOK UH574

The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

STYLISTIC Q702

The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.

STYLISTIC Q702

My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
