    Picture It! an old friend from way back to vs 5. Picture It Premium 10 is even better. It still comes with a book! Can you say 128 pages? Yes! A real printed manual, and even more detail available via the internet on the details of the individual features.

    Picture It! offers four tool sets, grouped by function:
    * Organize - Library, Import, and Keyword Painter; and
    * Create - Templates, Special Effects, fun things and more; and
    * Edit - Mini Lab, improved Tools, Auto Fixes, Red Eye removal; and
    * Share – Print, Resizing, and Web/E-mail.

    Organization is perhaps the one area where most of us drop the ball! and the chaos which follows, due to our inability to remember where we put, that shot or what we named it. You can import from your camera, scanner, existing hard drive photos or an external thumb drive.

    The LIBRARY has a few impressive features, you can paint individual or groups of photos with keyword, you can mark individual items for further action, and there is a slider on the top bar which allows you to make the thumbnail prints larger or smaller! Time, date, and size of the photo are provided in plain English, and you can caption with a simple click.

    The FOLDER’s View is very clever arrangement where PICTURE IT does a sweep of the hard drive and presents you all the photos it finds, and shows you where they are! You can review and manage very easily. Like me, you may find some of those photos you though you had already deleted by mistake.

    Create didn’t impress me so much; not being into framing photo’s, making fuzzy edges and changing the look to watercolor…painting. If you need to do the art/craft thing, scrape book job or create a nice card or invitation it is here for you.

    Edit tools are limited, but do work. Red-eye is easy to fix, the auto fix options for color, contrast and brightness are some of the simplest and easiest to use…and effective. Also, the manual provides descent, basic English explanations fir some of the causes and effects, and the magic jargon of the photo world. Had to go get my camera manual and see if my camera supported some features talked about.

    Share is wonderful; your relatives will appreciate this feature. Share will automatically take that five gig photo you took of the kid and reduce it to 50K. Hopefully, you will convert it before you drop it on an unsuspecting person in an e-mail with attached photo requiring 30 min’s to download. Please remember, most of other people do not have broadband. You can print multiple wallet size; you can mix and print different photos on the same sheet of photo paper.
    Read the manual and check out the well-prepared tutorials, which will talk and walk you thru the basics. This is not Photoshop or Paint Shop Pro, but for the individual who is interesting in doing a little more than looking at their digital pics on 2-inch viewer of the camera, this is a nice package. The tools are sufficient to cover the basics; crop, fix it a bit, put more than one picture on a page for printing, create a calendar of the grand kids, e-mail to someone in a size that will not victimize the recipient or re-size them for your cell phone and more.
