  1. I have been using Adobe Elements 4 to improve my pictures but I was forced to make a change when I recently purchased a new PC running Windows 7. Upgrading my Adobe Elements would have cost $100 so I looked for alternatives. I was a bit suspicious of Photo Explosion. After all, its price was $30 with a $10 mail-in rebate. However, it turns out to be a great package. Easy to use and far more capability that I will probably ever use. And, the software comes with a very useful manual. I haven’t had a decent manual in years from anyone else. I recommend, without any reservations that you buy Photo Explosion.

  2. This is just a very slightly downgraded form of the Delux version. You can still do almost all the same stuff, it just has less projects and graphics that come with the software. As far as editing the photos this is the same and just amazing! I have used other photo software that was suppose to do the same things, but actually doing it didn’t work very well most the time. These programs make it very easy. The first thing I did was try out the Tan Creator, because this is one in I’ve had a program suppose to do and it would just ruin the look of the picture and look so obviously shopped. This looks real, I don’t know how they do it, but it looks real and it only seems to target skin on top, so you don’t have to worry terribly about being precise with the ‘brush’. I was very impressed. My older brother just got married so I uploaded a bunch of these pictures and was able to do amazing things, like clean up my very acne prone 15 year old brother’s face and look normal, not shopped. It smoothed out the look of skin over scars on other family members and it elimenates red eye in a way that looks real. It can also do all the normal stuff like play with color saturation, change to sepia, black in white, make it look like oil paint or color pencil, sharpen and that stuff. This is just such a wonderful tool Then on top it has many photo related crafts, like scrapbooking, disc covers, cards, collages (it has an extract tool to get rid of background so you can make some awesome collages) and etc… Very cool software!

    Photo Explosion 4.0 is great photo software! It’s packed with features and is fairly intuitive to use. Project Studio allows you to create greeting cards, calendars, family trees, journals, scrapbooks, magazine covers–the list goes on. You can either choose a project that is already set up and import the picture(s), change the words, fonts, and effects (such as shadows on the text or put frames on the photos). There are lots of options to customize! For more creative people, you can create a project from scratch. Some projects, such as booklets and brochures, are only available from scratch. There’s a text-based tutorial if you need extra help.

    The Image Editor allows you to edit all aspects of your photos, from the usuals, like cropping and removing red eye, to the less common, like removing blemishes and whitening teeth. It’s not as intuitive as Project Studio, but the tutorials are pretty complete, taking you step-by-step through each activity; however, be sure you know the names of all the toolbars! I would prefer Flash movies, rather than simple text tutorials, to show how to do each action.

    Photo Explosion Album allows you to organize your photos, tag (categorize) them, and share them on social networking and other websites. I particularly like the tagging feature. You can either tag a photo with the standard tags they provide (such as family or events), and you can create your own tags, and you can create subcategories (for example “Uncle Andy” under Family). Then you can search for all photos with a certain tag. I make lots of photo books using Picaboo, and I haven’t figured out how to have Picaboo call up the Photo Explosion Album, it only searches my photos folder–that’s probably a fault of Picaboo, not Photo Explosion. It’s very easy to upload photos to websites, or as a screen saver, or to the other Photo Explosion programs.

    Photo Explosion includes a bonus program, PanoramaPlus, which allows you to turn a series of photos or a video into a horizontal, vertical, tiled, or 360 degree panorama. It’s a fairly simple program–download the photos or video and click “stitch”. Then you can do some editing or leave it as is. It’s also easy to export the panorama as a PDF, JPEG/TIFF/etc, or a movie, or to email it.

    Photo Explosion Deluxe has these same programs plus three additional ones to create montages, morph two photos into one, and create slideshows with background music that others can view on TV. If you want these extra programs, spend the extra money and get the Deluxe version. For more basic needs, Photo Explosion 4 is all you’ll need!

    I’ve spent an hour trying to do something as simple as draw a circle on a photo. The manual says to insert one using the “Insert Menu”, but that menu is not to be found. Help does not mention it, nor does the manual index say where it is. I’m new to this application, but I should be able to find answers using the help menu and the manual. Nova’s web site has no help feature. In fact, much of the site is not working. The “Learning Center” tab instead goes to an application to join the “User Community”. The “User Community” tab goes to “Product Updates”, and the “Product Support” tab goes to “Page not found”. What a joke. The site promises a 90-day “satisfaction guarantee or your money back”, but no supporting info, no way to actually use the “guarantee”. Don’t waste your time with this product or this company.
