The way theyâ€™re pricing it, youâ€™d think Ulead is giving away its flagship image editing software. PhotoImpact 12 can now be bought for Â£30 ($56) in the UK. It used to be Â£50 but from today until the end of January 2007 itâ€™s available at the reduced price as part of a promotional campaign by Ulead to push PhotoImpact 12.
Hey, itâ€™s not a bad software. It may not have the glamor of Photoshop but it definitely has the industrial strength – not to mention the breadth â€“ of the premier image editing suite.
And a complete image editing suite it certainly is. Aside from its industrial grade but easy-to-use photo editing capability, the package includes Ulead Photo Explorer 8.6 for managing and browsing photos, video and other digital media; Ulead PhotoImpact Album 12, a database-driven photo management tool; Ulead COOL 360 for composing panoramic images; and Ulead GIF Animator 5.05, a widely acclaimed GIF animation tool.
