CodedColor PhotoStudio is a full-featured, all-in-one image manager and editor with a myriad of functions and tools that will surely cover all your organizing and enhancing needs. It supports all the most widely used image and video file formats, and allows you to apply EXIF, IPTC, and Geo tagging to your images to help you organize and manage your entire collection.

The list of editing features covered by this tool is simply too long to reproduce here. Suffice it to say that the standard exposure and color correction, noise removal, retouching, and image enhancement features are all included in the somehow cluttered interface of the program. Finding some of them, though, may be a bit harder, to the point that the program includes a search tool function! Perspective transformation, barrel distortion fixing, edge enhancement, or AutoFlash (shadow highlighting), however, are some of those other editing features that you will only find in advanced photo-enhancing tools.

The managing and organizing set of tools is equally impressive. It allows you to read and write EXIF and IPTC tags, as well as annotate your images using titles, keywords, and descriptions. You can search for image duplicates, sort and organize your photos in categories, albums, and catalogs, and move them to a different folder in a snap. You can batch-rename them, and put them into neatly organized PDF or Flash albums.

As a bonus, you can also use CodedColor PhotoStudio to view and create stunning seamless panoramas, to create “screenshows” complete with transitions, compare images, capture screens, compress images in ZIP archives, batch-converts your photos among all the most popular formats, stores your images in self-executable albums, PDF documents or multi-page TIFF files, etc.

The possibilities are endless. All that’s required to make the most of this comprehensive application is to take the time to explore and learn its extensive catalog of tools. Once you are familiar with it and see the results, you will find it was worthwhile.
