MidasPhoto is fairly easy to use. It's not the prettiest design that we've seen in a program but it's simple and straightforward.

Before you can use the program, you have to enter your email address. They say that it is not going to be shared but you will have to subscribe to the newsletter. MidasPhoto automatically imports photos from your digital camera, removable device like a digital camera storage card or a scanner. You can also take screenshots of a window or the screen with this program.

The major drawback to this application is that it does not have very many editing features. In fact, it doesn't even have a remove red-eye function. This is the only program that does not have this function of the 18 that we reviewed. The editing features are called "filters" and they are: Lighten, Darken, Gamma, More Contrast, Less Contrast, Soften, Sharpen, Blur, Grayscale and Sepia. There is no way to manually adjust anything. There is also no way to see the effect. You just have to do it and then undo and try again if you don't like it. You can also rotate, resize and crop.

With the limited feature set that this product offers, it doesn't match up to the competition. There are easier to use, more powerful options available. Of course, if you are on a tight budget, this is the cheapest product on the market.
