Good ol' SoftOrbits! Installation was smooth with Win10 Home x64. No warning from Antivirus software at all.

D not know why people have problems installing. Followed link for free key, added email address and Name and he presto and there was the serial number. Cut and pasted it in and activated immediately. Have not had time to check program for functionality other than it runs and I can import a picture.

Easy activation, fast setup. Have to say though that although any "free" software is great, I was not too impressed with this one. All the basic photo tools are there, but you can find the same in any free photo editor. Sorry, not impressed. Thank you though GOTD for the free software!

1. Font size & color r hard 2 use-- good 4 eye fatigue, which makes 4 disuse,
2. focus on foto area & tools r on either side o pg rather than towads cntr, lving cntr area blamk=not good
3. under Help>About, I have 'registered version' but nothing works. I have a red circle but does nothing. This does NOT speak well 4 d product. I'v used Photoshop & Inpaint quite extensively

Ok Windows 10 x64 Pro. Installed to D: internal w/ key. Process clean & simple. Did note readme said to NOT rename the installation file or it's a no go. Simple program w/ drag & drop feature. Just a backup app for me since will usually default to one of the big name programs that have the major features attached to them. Thanks.

Thank you for the offer GOTD and no disrespect to SoftOrbits, but with all that is going on in the world regarding security, privacy, etc., I am reluctant to install anything from a Russian company on my PC. Especially when, as with most software here, I am forced to disable my antivirus to install it! Again, not bad-mouthing the company, just being cautious.

Mostly the same functionality as IRFANVIEW, not enuf functionality for me.
YMMV.

I like SoftOrbits software so decided to give this one a go but am having trouble installing it..
When running the .exe it asks me for the installation language, I select English and then after about 30s, it fails with:
"Runtime Error (at 21:411):"
"WinHttp.WinHttpRequest: The operation timed out."

This fails repeatedly. I tried downloading the package again but still get the same error. I'm trying to install in China, thought maybe the site it's trying to access for the activation key is blocked so have tried while connected using VPNs to other countries but still fails.

Any ideas how to resolve this ?

craig, Thank goodness, you DON'T.

Certainly I didn't. I'd be cheesed off if I had found that was the ONLY way to register....

No, just supply a legit email address.... If you don't like the idea of possible spam, just mark the first one as junk, and they will forever go into the junk box. Such things don't bother me.... It's a small "price" to pay -- and sometimes I might even be interested...

Very straightforward download/activation/installation process! Had it installed in 90 seconds! Thank you for doing away with the back and forth with having to email license key. A welcome change for GOTD. Let's make all offers as simple as this.

Pro? Well it's not bad. When I saw the name "Photo Editor Pro 4.0", I guess I was expecting a photo editor rather than a object remover. While it does have crop, resize, and text options, so do most free photo apps. As far as the object removal aspect, it does better than most free programs, but for the money they ask for it, I can find a lot more, and fuller featured alternatives for less.

SoftOrbits programs have been notorious in the past for deactivating previous giveaways (and sometimes bought programs) when installed: see e.g. https://www.giveawayoftheday.com/soft-orbits-photo-retoucher-4-1/.
It has certainly happened to me, so before completing the installation it would be useful to know whether this still applies.
On the other hand, the program does appear to install on XP, although not officially supported.

Link with the name of the "free" software is actually a link to a program called "Free Download Manager." Questionable to say the least. NOT INTERESTED IN REDIRECTS.

Reply   |   Comment by Kim G.  –  6 months ago  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (-25)

Kim G., You could try clicking on the actual download instead of the one for an ad. You know, the button that says "Download Now SoftOrbits Photo Editor Pro 4.0" Right next to the countdown counter ………….


The Free Download button is for the clearly stated and marked as an advertisement and in large font too , Free Download Manager.

Downloaded 3 times.... zip is corrupt... no activation code in read file. Needless to say... no program for me

Reply   |   Comment by mahurin  –  6 months ago  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (-6)

mahurin, There is no activation code in the read me file..as in most SoftOrbits programs, it asks you to fill in their form before install, and it will send you the code.
As for a corrupt zip, it's probably your Anti-Virus blocking it as a false positive

Reply   |   Comment by DJ  –  6 months ago  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (+1)

mahurin,
Did you actually read the contents in the 'readme.txt' file?

Reply   |   Comment by Robert  –  6 months ago  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (0)

mahurin,
Forgot to mention, what are you using to open the zip file because mine opened fine.
Suggestion to open zip file
1. Use the free 7-zip program
2. Use WinRAR program and associate zip extentions in the options. I think, by default, it's already to open zip files.

Reply   |   Comment by Robert  –  6 months ago  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (-1)

Robert, I just use the default Win 10 zip extension..after the file downloads, open it and hit "extract all"

For free, it's OK. But for $80 it's much too expensive. You can get Affinity Photo (an excellent "Photoshop clone") for $50, and it includes already several tools to remove unwanted objects from an image.

Reply   |   Comment by M. H.  –  6 months ago  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (+25)

M. H., I agree -- it is effective, but definitely seems slower than InPaint....

However, when you need such a utility -- which can be very useful -- and you don't have InPaint, this is definitely worth having!

I would point out that, contrary to some indication given elsewhere here, you can't just enter "any ole" email address, and expect to get a licence number -- that didn't work for me. (I just wanted to see if it was true!) So I put in my legit email address, and yes, THEN it opened up and revealed -- a licence number....

Thanks, SoftOrbits!

M. H.,.... remove unwanted objects from an image.....MS Paint can also camouflage objects with copy and paste.

Click download
Open "read me" file (instructions)
Run "Setup"
On "Activate" click "get free key - here they ask for your name and email. When submit, activation key is generated on the same page online, not through mail.

"Unzip the package you`ve downloaded to a separate folder and run PhotoEditor_Setup_pt1.exe
Click "Get the free Activation Key" button and fill in the form to get your activation key.
Use the provided activation key to complete the installation."

10 minutes after requesting registration key nothing showed in my gmail inbox nor as junk folder. Tried using outlook email = nothing!
Therefore unable to continue with install... :>(

Reply   |   Comment by GrandPa  –  6 months ago  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (+8)

GrandPa, When I clicked "Get Activation Key" my browser (which was opened) was re-directed to another page, where I had to input my gmail account and then the activation key was displayed. Did a copy of the key, inputted that into the appropriate box (when installing) and the program activated successfully. Good luck...
