If you're looking for an image editor that's an "all rounder" then look no further than CodedColor Imaging Pro. 1STEIN GmbH have combined all of the digital photographer's needs in one single application: image viewing & editing, web album export, annotations, database & keyword searching, contactsheets, screenshows, batch conversion, photo finishing, red eye correction, screen capture and TWAIN import.

CodedColor Imaging Pro does it all and you won't need to reorganize your photo archives and nothing is written into your directories. In fact the makers claim that if you can use Windows Explorer you can use CodedColor Imaging Pro and they are right the whole design of the program is very intuitive and easy to use. The range of features is massive but not complex; this program makes it easy to organize, upload, compress, resize, view, annotate, edit images, etc etc. Another nice touch is the "Print Order" facility which allows you to order high quality professional prints direct. There are even more features in the pipeline which are : CD/DVD archiving, auto up- and download to WEB server, community sharing, screensaver with transition effects, sounds, more sharpness regulations, animated GIFs & multimedia formats, multimedia support

I suggest you take advantage of the freeware download and see what you are missing after all they say "A picture is worth a thousand words". The freeware version is fully functional but does watermark the albums you create.

A very versatile and useful program which deserves a look.
