retouching with easy-to-use controls and animated tools to allow
instant cropping, touch up and color correction of photos in a sleek,
intuitive package. Users can "clean" up their photos and create slide
shows and picture albums for friends and family to enjoy. Compositing
tools give users infinite options for combining pictures, clip art
and text, and anyone can create colorful, expressive albums of their
favorite images to print or share on the Web. A large selection of
templates, cartoon and photo-realistic clip art give an amateur the
polish of a professional, all for under $50. Finished projects can be
