ArcSoft’s PhotoStudio 4 gives you the basic image-editing tools found in the full version of Adobe Photoshop, for approximately one-sixth the price-as does the light version of Photoshop, the $95
January 2000). But while PhotoStudio 4 lacks the industry-standard Photoshop interface, it offers several high-end features that Photoshop LE doesn’t. Foremost among these are multiple undos, re-editable text, macros, and batch processing. Experienced users can even edit an image’s individual color channels. Unfortunately, a bug makes high-resolution photos print with pixelation, and changing an image’s orientation causes undesirable softening of details.
