Magic Photo Editor
Magic Photo Editor lets you place a portrait photo onto a landscape by means of mask effects as well as create personalized designs with frames, text and cliparts.
First you are to load a "backdrop" – a picture that will serve as a background for your design. You are supposed to use your own pictures as backdrops, whereas you will be offered 200 frames and 200 mask effects to choose from. Most frames are designed in a style that will appeal mostly to children, with all kinds of cartoon characters etc. Besides, there is a choice of cliparts (flowers and cartoons) that you can place onto your design.
Inconveniently enough, you don’t seem to have an opportunity to move the mask over the portrait photo. Then, you can adjust the position and size of all elements you apply on your design, but if you try to enlarge the cartoon elements, there will be obvious jagginess visible.
All designs are saved in the size similar to that displayed in the program window (approximately 480 x 600 pixels). So unfortunately you won’t be able to print the results; they will be only suitable for using on the net and sending via e-mail.
Magic Photo Editor is in no way a serious image editor with some of the frames not looking too elegant and some cartoons being of poor quality. Projects designed with Magic Photo Editor will hardly have a professional and polished look, but the software is good enough to create amusing artworks and greeting cards for your friends and family.
