If it does not install with your anti virus on then something is being installed in the back ground. Do not turn your anti virus off, just do not install. Nothing is 100% free. And always create a restore point because some of these programs have no removal programing. An example is nch.

Program loaded fine to Windows 7, 32 bit. I was able to install it to a partition that I wanted etc. Looks to be a very useful tool for the editing I need to do.

I don't particularly like the dark feel of the GUI though.

Thank you Casper and GOTD.

Time & time again we read complaints about the difficulty in downloading programs from GOTD. So far, over many years, I have never had a problem with downloads from this site. Perhaps if people read the instructions a little more carefully we wouldn't be seeing all these complaints. Todays program downloaded for me with no problems whatsoever.

Have you had the thought that maybe there is a reason that people ask question?
I'm happy for you that it is always running smoothly for you. But even I sometimes encounter problems when I download from GOTD in these cases there is a licencekey in the readme file. Then I use I download from the company's website where the program / app is. ("Free to try") and then uses licencekey available in the README file. I feel pretty confident that I can handle my PC.
My first PC was a 16MGHZ CPU and Windows 3.0. When then Windows 3.1 came and I could hook me up with my 4.400 modem online WOW.
To ask is to learn and it is important to always dare to ask. And if any question that anyone dare to ask. it clearly shows the lack of understanding from those who criticize the person who dared to ask.

Just downloaded and installed with no problems. The "About" does say Giveaway so I guess everything is activated properly. Just opened a Nikon NEF file with no problem. I am using Adobe Lightroom and this has many of its features. No Keywording or Facial Recognition though but can't complain about something when it's free. I just played around with it a bit and it is very easy to use. If I wasn't committed to Lightroom because of its organizing capabilities, I would make this my primary editor but will probably bring it up anyway if I need a quick solution. Thank you GOTD and thank you Casper Lee.

The interface is modern with deep colors, decent contrast and decently labeled buttons and functions. The dark gray/light gray combo isn't everyone's cup of tea, but it's lovely and works well for me. I really appreciate the use of larger fonts.

The layout is pleasant and so far, it's been easy to get to main editor functions (crop, auto-contrast, etc). I'm hoping this will be my mid-point between Zoner and Photoscape, and it's looking to be a good fit.

Two issues:

I experienced (for the first time in a few years of using GOTD) issues with installing this program. Upon clicking setup.exe, it only opened the final GOTD page and nothing else. Even disabling AVG & my firewall didn't help. Finally, rebooting AND disabling my protection allowed installation. This, IMHO, is just as big of an annoyance as the FB/email/opt-in/surly combo.

Please, in order for me to ever use this program again and even consider purchasing beyond this, for the love of Thor, WHERE IS THE RESIZE FUNCTION? Without it, this program can be of no use to me. I don't mean batch resizing, just a simple pixel resizing of a single image on the screen.

Thank you for this GOTD, and I hope for a reply so I can continue to support this particular program.

Reply   |   Comment by Whisperly  –  3 years ago  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (+6)

Whisperly,
1. Our installation file is absolutely clean, but GOTD wrapped it as a new EXE file. I guess the security issue may be caused by this behavior.
2. You can find RESIZE function in the "Save As" dialog.

Reply   |   Comment by Caspar Lee  –  3 years ago  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (+1)

Caspar Lee, thank you. Unfortunately, only being able to resize upon saving isn't good enough for even basic needs. The program doesn't even tell me what percentage view I'm currently in (could be 36%, 83%, who knows...). It's important to see all changes as we work on an image, step by step. Resizing at the end, and without a preview, can result in a potentially distorted view and extra unnecessary steps. Honestly, I like most everything else about your program (maybe add "SAVE AS to original location as an option also), but "RESIZE" is a most basic function found in programs way less sophisticated. Thank you, but this user must pass.

This program is simply awesome, and without over-complications. Just realized it's raw compatible, so for all those pics you just want to knock off the camera and get moving, this it the Swiss knife. For some detailed works, you will still need PS or Gimp, but I don't get to do those very often, so this is just ideal. Looks like Zoner, but simpler, easier and less complicated. Thanks to the developer for offering it, and GOTD for bringing it to the community.

It is very irritable that the installation looks gone well. But there is no application even though the message says that it has gone well. To disable virus program does not help. AVG Free Edition What should be done so that it is possible to install

I was advised as a workaround to disable Kaspersky plus stop it running on start up. Reboot PC and download, install and test Giveaway without antivirus running. Then enable Kaspersky and reboot again I guess.

It was also suggested to see if Kaspersky could re-write their software to run with GOTD!

Activates on GAOTD then stops setup. Anti-virus off, Firewall off -- this is not unusual, I often have to forego GAOTD giveaways due to this since the new format. PITA, not worth the waste of time.

Downloaded and installed fine. Opened it and was unable to read any of the .75 agate type face. Tried a few things to enlarge, but no joy. Even the photo I loaded could not be enlarged. Sure there is some trick to setting a larger type, but none of the windows tricks I know (ctrl+) worked. Useless if I can't see anything. Unloaded. Thanks anyway.

I have no comment on the program, since I don't need it.
But I do have something to say on the installation oddities. Ever since the introduction of the .GCD file in setups, I have found it possible only to install by going into Safe Mode. Closing Kaspersky alone did not help, so there must be interference also from spyware programs - perhaps Windows Defender, but I have at least two others running. This is so inconvenient that I do not accept any program unless it reads like a really worthwhile trial.

Installed PT Photo Editor and automatically activated.
Tested with a hotel lobby shot under very warm ambient incandescent light. Whole photo was yellowish.
Used the Auto button for 'White Balance" click once.
Then saved the edited photo with [Saved As ].
Result: Very Good.

Giveawayoftheday.com of software will not install. After running setup.exe shows "Successfully activated" and that's it, and unfortunately nothing to install. I had the same problem with other software here. I wonder if that's done on purpose or what is wrong. Have I read somewhere that a few others have the same problem with installing software from here.

I apologize for perhaps not too accurate translation Google Translate.

Reply   |   Comment by Gryzzli  –  3 years ago  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (+3)

Dear Gryzzli,

The issue is most likely to be caused by the anti-virus suite blocking the installation. You may try to disable it and restart the computer. Please make sure it won't start automatically with the computer. Then please download the program archive once again and try to install it.This time there should be no problems with the installation. Make sure you switch your anti-virus back on after the installation ;)

Please mind that all the files are checked for viruses beforehand, so you may rest assured, the installation is 100% clean.

Always yours,
GOTD Team

Thank Giveaway of the Day for advice. It helped off the antivirus (AVG).
Maybe it would be good to the installation files do something else, so that it does not obstruct antivirus programs. With other software problems are usually elsewhere.

Downloaded with ease. I love that I didn't need to share on Facebook or have an email sent. I do like the GUI. While the gray on black is faint at first, once you load a picture, it "brightens". Don't be discouraged by that. I put a picture in that was somewhat a blur. I was able to brighten it and enhance it such that it looked "normal". This program is a definite keeper!

Installed no problem Win10 64.

I tried to correct the White Balance several times on a jpg, each time un-doing for another attempt. Unsatisfied with the results I attempted to open another photo (jpg). When asked if I wanted to save the first I checked "No". The program immediately crashed.

After the crash I was asked if I wanted to submit a report. After filling in all the blanks including my report I needed to enter the captcha of approx 7 characters, however the captcha box only accepted 2 characters so I couldn't send it.

I restarted the program and tried opening the second photo again and the program immediately crashed again.

So far, I'm not liking this program!

Caspar Lee, Thanks for identifying the problem (Metadata). After hearing back from you I tested using a pic already known to crash the program. On the first attempt the pic, as expected, crashed the program.

I removed the metadata using Thumbs+ and tried again and this time had no problem opening and working with the pic.

I really appreciate your help. It looks like I'll be using this program a lot.

created \Presets\Global\Bag O Trix and dumped presets in.
Nice Folder in GUI says "Bag O Trix" ;o)

This baby had brought a tear to my eye, not kidding.
I edited a pretty darn good photo of my family member and quickly got to the meat of making it really look pro, and it suddenly dawned on me I Might be looking at this person in the past tense. Good grief, instant tears.

Photo looks EPIC IMO!!!!

MAIN things that stands out to ME.
It's FAST.
It's BATCH FILE "Script-able" into "MY" existing workflow
Lack of RAW unfortunate.

No Cut an Paste to other photo editing gui programs, love to tweak back and forth but no joy, Tried INVISIBLE CTR-C CTR-V and PRAYER -- no joy.. waaaa --can't have everything.

Charlie, Gimp and PT Photo Editor are completely different, and nobody knows your requirements, so I think the best way to get the answer is trying it your self.

Charlie,

"If you are already a heavy user Gimp editor, does PT Photo Editor have features that would make it an attractive alternative?"

PT Photo Editor is a quick & easy image editor without the more complicated features that make The GIMP harder to learn & use, but also make The GIMP worthwhile if you're into more advanced editing. Put another way, as a heavy [I assume advanced] GIMP user, you might find PT Photo Editor useful for basic adjustments on all of your photos, using The Gimp just for those special few that warrant the extra attention & work.

Hi, about Installation: Goes without any other choice to C:Program Files, that's it. I personally dislike this behaviour, as I might have the same Program already there, which version I would like to keep (own settings, or Feature that later is either modified or removed..)

Before I saw today's Giveaway I checked wether I had any other version of this Program already, and yes, indeed I had, but when I opened it - it stated 'Free Edition', so checked the date and it took me to this Giveaway: https://www.giveawayoftheday.com/pt-photo-editor-2-1-2/ Now, that's odd since I tested it (then) and also left a Comment afterwards (btw, Comments of Karl and Giovanni are still worth reading, as usual, when found!). So why would this particular Copy show 'Free Edition'?? I did not un-installed it myself, or lose it. Today's Installation of PT PhotoEditor Pro went to the same Folder as that from November 2014 and replaced the other one, showing afterwards Pro version and licensed to Giveaway. Looks to me that it CAN expire after a while!?? Hope this one DOESN'T!..

The Program itself is quite a neat, useful Photo Tool worth keeping! I can see I had few reservations before, but they can be 'over-looked', as the value of Presets and naturally rather easy adjustments that can be applied additionally speak for themselves. I also downloaded 5 more Presets today from PT Site and after extracting them to my desktop I dragged them into Presets ('Global', and next 'General') Folder of PT PhotoEditor. They all have ptpep extensions and show in the Console of Editor without problem. Recommended.

Hi fran, when you first install the program, you can specify its installation path. If you have an old version in your computer, it will upgrade automatically without losing all your previous settings and presets.
The giveaway won't expire, expect you uninstall it or overinstall it with other version of PT Photo Edior.

Reply   |   Comment by Caspar Lee  –  3 years ago  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (+7)

Hi Casper Lee, thanks for clarifying that for me in the instance of PT PhotoEditor, really appreciated. Points I was making earlier still stand thou, because not EVERY Program will automatically 'remember' user's settings (sometimes it asks about choice of keeping them), or automatically find once selected Installation path. Here - I really like that decision to be left entirely to PC users, who after all should have final word what goes where on their computers, what stays as it is, what may be uninstalled and REPLACED with newer version a.s.o??.. Finally - I did not make my copy of previous PT Editor 'Free' with less Features, why would I degrade fully functioning Copy:)?

I've never left a comment before but this program deserves one. There is almost no learning curve with this editor, it's easy and fun to use. Loads and runs quick. Easy to navigate. I especially like the feature wherein, while editing, if you press the space bar, your original photo appears until one releases the space bar.

Thank you for this...I'm lovin' it.

The GUI is unusable. Grey on black: Too hard to realize - deinstall.

Mike, you're right, the interface is almost unreadable, ridiculous.

Is there no menu bar? Is there no settings/preferences screen?? I would expect those to be there, both because they're standards and because surely this program must let you change the color scheme from dark gray on black.

Mike,
A really unpleasant interface at every level, horrible combination of colours and almost unusable selection process.
But at least it's fashionable!

(Without looking at the program yet) I've always had problems with darker color combinations (& I'm sure I will with this also).

Exactly!

Mike, did you try loading a photo? When a picture is loaded the available options turn very light grey, and when you hover over them or use them they turn white :~)
A charcoal grey background is more or less standard on all professional photo/video editors these days, (at least all the ones I know of) as it's proved to be the most neutral background to work against with colour....

Now THIS is the giveaway of my dreams! It begins downloading right when I click the download button (I had a start of surprise: WHAT?!!! No mention of Facebook, email adress etc.?), it installs smoothly over previous version, it registers by itself (again, no email address required, no checking the spam folder, waiting for the key, or for a link to the key, or for a link to a form to fill to get the key...)
... and I like the soft!
... and there is sunshine over Paris this morning!

ouialaraison, don´t know how you made it. The share-window will still open by clicking the DL-button...

With no raw support, it shouldn't pretend it can open and edit raw files. This is bad behaviour.

Mudo J., V3.2 doesn't support raw file well. From V3.6, PT Photo Editor supports extracting RAW in 16-bit format.

Caspar Lee, I work almost exclusively in RAW format, I guess I'll wait for the next version.

Reply   |   Comment by Null  –  3 years ago  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (0)

Caspar Lee, thank you for your answer, but I still think there should be a little warning, informing non-experienced users, that they can only "edit" embedded preview jpg, which is worse than nothing, and not the actual raw file.

I have briefly tested version 3,7, and it still doesn't work properly. It can't open legitimate raw files with missing or changed jpg preview.

Reply   |   Comment by Mudo J.  –  3 years ago  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (+2)

Mudo J., Could you please send a sample RAW file to support#photo-toolbox.com(replace '#' to '@') for analyzing? Thank you very much!

Caspar Lee,

instead of my test cr2 file with additional metadata, I took this very common sample:

http://www.imaging-resource.com/PRODS/T3I/T3IFARI00200.CR2.HTM

Then I made a cr2 with modified jpg preview (via ExifTool) and two dng files, with small and without preview jpgs. Your version 3.7 (in a virtual machine) seems to handle them as expected. Version 3.2, as you said, can not.

Examples:

Have a nice day!

After installation, upon launching, I keep getting an error message: "Activation failed. Server error." Is the problem by me or by the developer?

Reply   |   Comment by Aryeh Naiman  –  3 years ago  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (+4)

Aryeh Naiman, The program needs connect to our server(photo-toolbox.com) to activate itself. Please make sure your firewall didn't block it.

Reply   |   Comment by Caspar Lee  –  3 years ago  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (+11)

I got the same message, but it looks like all is working, regardless.

What can I say? This became my go-to photo editor with the last giveaway, and now I get a free upgrade :~)
Always brilliant, and now even more bits to fiddle with. Also I've noticed a massive speed increase, especially on loading.
I've recommended this to everyone ever since I discovered it, and will continue to do so. Thanks very much.
