Review Of RetroEditor
Although the RetroEditor has a good variety of filters and effects, it is somewhat confusing. Since you can not preview how it will look the final result, the editor works means that in luck.
Much of the change is made by changing the contrast properties, color and saturation. The end result for each conversion’s always a surprise – not always pleasant. It would be better if the exhibit software in real time as the selected filter is determined to change.
The effect adjustment system for check box is even stranger. Some leave the image so dark that you can not even see it right, while others blur the picture and leave all very weird. Considering that the application is very slight and did not even need to be installed, it may be interesting for people who want to test the personalization of files without compromise.
Another problem is that you always need to send convert to view the results in the right pane. Finally, although it has the many filters and options for conversion, the editor is not the best.
