I've been involved in digital imaging since the 1980s when satellite image interpretation became an everyday tool in my work.


This made the transition to photographic image processing an easy one.


Working with my grandsons has shown me how daunting it can be to enter this arena for the first time, and how bewildering the choice of software can be as you advance towards more refined and complicated techniques.

Based on this experience it felt like a good idea to bring some of that together and to create the software comparisons and reviews you will find on this site.

After that the site just grew!


Whatever your level of experience, I hope you will find it to be very useful when you come to making your own choices.


Let me know (on the adjacent form) where you struggle and I will endeavour to answer your questions.

The cost is exactly the same as if you had gone to the merchant site directly.

The reviews and recommendations are as honest as I can make them. If you buy on the basis of that review or recommendation, then do not like the goods and you return them to the vendor I receive nothing -so there is no point in providing a good review of a duff product.
