InPixio Review: Main Features
When you’ve downloaded and opened the InPixio Photo Studio 10 software, you’re presented with a screen that lets you select the program that you want to work with. The three programs included with InPixio Photo Studio 10 Pro are:
Photo Eraser – Lets you quickly erase people and objects you don’t want in your photo.
Photo Cutter – Cut around objects to either use them in a collage or completely change the background.
Photo Editor – Edit your images with a variety of professional yet easy to use effects and sliders.
Let’s check them one by one.
1. InPixio Photo Eraser
When you open the Photo Erase you’re presented with the above screen which offers you walk through tutorials and video tutorials to help you. When you’re ready, you can click on open to find the photo you want to erase something from. Once you’ve made the selection of what you want to erase, you press the Erase button.
With this tool, you can remove all kinds of objects like a person, animals, different structures like a building, shadows, or even logos and watermarks
2. InPixio Photo Cutter
Photo Cutter only has one purpose – to cut the background out of your images. It does this by allowing you to draw a line on the part of the image that you want to cut out, and the software does the rest. You can also select the areas you want to keep too.
3. InPixio Photo Editor
Photo Editor is the main program. This is what you use to edit photos like Photoshop. In this program, you can apply presets, make alterations, and apply effects, styles and textures plus lots more to your photos.
The most remarkable features of Photo Editor are:
- Light correction (exposure, brightness, contrast)
- Levels correction (curves)
- Color correction (white balance, hue, saturation, split tone)
- Special effects – blur, film grain, sharpness, noise reduction, vignette
- Frames, textures, text effects
- Instant filters
InPixio vs Photoshop: Why InPixio is BETTER than Photoshop
It is not easy to find a photo editing software fit our needs. Both InPixio and Photoshop have similar tools for color correction, improving light and saturation, cropping, and photo editing. Then, Photoshop is better customized, has a wider range of tools, and better management. Besides, there is an unlimited number of layers and advanced masks.
To sum up, Photoshop is the perfect solution for the publishing industry, for digital agencies, for digital art and photography professionals. However, it has steep learning curve. That’s the main reason why we think InPixio is better than Photoshop for most of the users. In other words, InPixio is a better choice for beginner and amateur photographers.
InPixio is not free. Although it has a trial version, the trial will be expired in 5 days.
There are two versions available of InPixio Photo Studio – the standard version, and the professional one:
- InPixio Photo Studio 10 – $49.99
- InPixio Photo Studio 10 Professional – $59.99
If you decide to buy InPixio, we would advise purchasing the professional versions. For $10.00 more, you get access to all the features including the excellent one-click image correction.
InPixio Reviews: The Verdict
Photo editing is something that everyone loves these days. Honestly, InPixio can fit the needs of most users. It allows you to edit your images and add a wide range of impressive effects easily.
However, as an honest reviewer, we must say InPixio is not highly recommended. Yes, it can edit photos easily and even perfectly, but it cannot finish it quickly. In my experience, usually I need to wait for more than 30 seconds for a simple editing, let alone it consumes me more than 30 minutes to download.
