Organization

  • Album Creation lets you add images, video and music clips into a central album for easier access.
  • View by date with Album Calendar, by descriptive text or your own rating (A, B, C, or unrated).
  • Zip and unzip files without the need for a separate Zip program.

Edit & Enhance

Ulead Photo Explorer has all of the basic editing functions and some interesting effects to enhance photos. Use Auto-Fix to repair common photo problems automatically: one photo at a time or as a specified group. Apply special effects such as charcoal, emboss, mosaic, noise, oil paint, pinch, ripple, tile, colored pen, watercolor, whirlpool, or wind for artistic flourishes. Batch-enhance functionality lets you apply these enhancements singly or to a group of images. You can also add text or stamps to images—you control font, size, style, and color.

Share

Ulead Photo Explorer allows you to share both in print and electronically. Print full-sized images, image thumbnails, greeting cards, CD labels, and calendars in various sizes and layouts. Create slideshows that include photos, video, music, voiceover narration, captions, and transition effects. Burn slideshows to CD for viewing on PCs or create Video CD's (VCD) for TV viewing. You can also publish your slideshows to the Web. Photo Explorer will automatically optimize your images when you send media to email recipients.     

Bonus Features

  • Scan Internet for Images enables you to easily download Web page images at one time and eliminates the tedious process of saving each image separately.
  • Trim video clips to remove unwanted segments from videos or commercials from recorded TV shows.
  • Export slideshows as a video file.
