This really is an excellent easy to use suite of photo effects
programs which has the added bonus of not needing an expensive image editor,
such as Photoshop or Paint Shop Pro, to operate. Not only that you can forget
all that layer and masking stuff that other complicated image editors use, this
is point and click with stunning results.
Buy the integrated suite and you get all these:
IE Deja Vu
Use the photograph's own image as a background to accent your subject matter.
IE Picture Framer
Set your photos in a virtual picture frame. Select from any number of frame
templates to frame your favorite pictures in.
Create a montage effect from a single photo. Another point and click IE tool
that yields superb masterpieces!
Make your subject matter standout out with BrightSpot. You can give your entire
image a new look this way. Convert the photo to black and white and then "paint"
back the parts you want to be in color!
IE Feather Art
Feather Art is also another great way to bring out the subject of your photo. By
softening the edges with a feathered effect you can bring the focus right to
Like BrightSpot, FrameOut is also a great way to bring out the subject of your
photo. By giving you a "picture within a picture" you can lift the subject right
off the page!
Everybody loves the kaleidoscope, so why not use one on your pictures! Great for
creating scrap book images! You can quickly take any part of a picture and make
a kaleidoscope image from it!
I urge you to take a look at the examples in each program at the ImageElements
will convince you of the quality of the results. The integrated suite contains
all 7 programs and represents tremendous value for money at US$29.99 and there
is also a free download of frames included in the integrated suite.
