PhotoInstrument is a practical image editor that provides you with a unique set of tools to retouch your photos and portraits, improving them in several ways. Some of those tools are the red-eye remover, the skin cleaner, the object remover, the glamour skin tool and the denoise tool. Besides, the program's user interface is available in more than thirty popular languages.

PhotoInstrument is rather simple and easy to use, and you can learn how to make the most of its controls and tools very quickly, thanks to the eight included "help videos". The program's main window is composed of several panels, being the biggest one where your source photo is browsed. On the left side of the window you have the "Instruments" panel, and there you can choose the effect you want to apply or the instrument you want to use to improve your loaded photo. There is also a second panel where you can configure all the appropriate parameters according to the selected instrument or function.

Three of the most used tools of PhotoInstrument are "Glow", "Glamour Skin" and "Skin Cleaner" which, of course, are mainly used for skin improvement. They allow you to take an ordinary photo and make it look like if it had been taken by a professional. Another impressive tool is "Object Remover" which, if you take the required time and patience to practice, literally allows you to remove any unwanted object from your photo (e.g. people, cars, animals, baggage, etc.) with excellent results. Anyway, PhotoInstrument also provides you with simpler editing functions that are available in most graphic editors, like brightness and contrast adjustment, rotate, scale, crop, color levels adjustment, blur/sharpen and many more.

To sum it all up, PhotoInstrument offers you a very interesting set of photo retouching functions and instruments that you will hardly find in other graphic editors. The program allows you to improve your photos and get professional-looking and almost perfect results, at a relatively low price.

sergeant This is a very good program . The only downside is the annoying BUY IT that prevents you doing anything until it times-out and screen unfreezes . This happens every couple of minutes. It would make more sense to offer it on a for-sale only basis. It is offered as SAVE DISABLED which is fair enough as that doesn`t interfere with the trial experience.
