Tried & Tested 1: Virtual Studio

I have written a series of full length articles published online at Triond and Wikinut titled Tried & Tested where I review, try out and test free softwares. I’d like to replicate them here in short form for the benefit of blogger friends especially those who use photo editing softwares. Let’s start off with Virtual Studio from optikVerve Labs. If you are like me who is into instant noodles and instant coffee, you’ll like Virtual Studio which is an instant editor. One click photo enhancements and you’re good to go. You just choose from 200 preset filters, effects and styles and it will be applied on your photo with a single click of the mouse. Quick and easy. And the process can be applied on batches of photos. No hours wasted on individual photo adjustments and tweaking with various tools. What might take your time is choosing from dozens upon dozens of styles and filters. For the photo above, I used the “Fall Colors” filter under the major category “Built-in”. It added a pinkish hue to an otherwise washed-out horizon in the original image. Other categories include “Color”, “Black and White” and “Extras”. Virtual Studio is packaged with Virtual Photographer and the download application size is just 3.52MB. The program runs on Vista 32-bit,  Windows XP, Windows ME or ’98 operating systems. If you don’t find it to your liking, no problem, just discard it. It’s totally free anyway.
