Flauntr review

Manufacturer: Flauntr

Our Rating: We rate this 3 out of 5

FlauntR online photo editor is a veritable eye-candy store crammed with effects, fonts, clip art, borders, and other tools.

FlauntR online photo editor is a veritable eye-candy store crammed with effects, fonts, clip art, borders, and other tools.

FlauntR can create slideshows and prep images to be social-network avatars or cell-phone wallpaper. You can apply colour schemes from famous paintings to your images, create electronic greeting cards, or even slap your photo on a mock magazine cover.

But accessing all that power can be difficult. FlauntR's assorted features are divvied up among half a dozen subapplications with names such as StylR, EditR, and TextR; it isn't always obvious what's where, and it takes a few seconds to hop between the applets.

An Undo button appears and disappears depending on where you are, and the controls for tweaking effects sit in a window so small that you sometimes must scroll around to see all the options a particular effect offers.

Oh, and one other thing: FlauntR works only on Windows PCs.

  • Overall: We give this item 6 of 10 overall

FlauntR is nowhere near as frustrating as Picture2Life, but it lacks the elegance and efficiency of FotoFlexer, Photoshop Express, and Picnik. At least FlauntR doesn't claim to be ready for prime time: Although it appeared in 2007, it's still labeled an alpha release.

  • Fotoflexer review

    Fotoflexer

    Fotoflexer, which bills itself as "The world's most advanced online image editor," does indeed pack an amazing array of capabilities - including a few that no other web-based Photoshop alternative dares to attempt.

    Epson Stylus Photo R2880

    No large format photo printer is easy to use - but the Epson Stylus Photo R2880 is more simple than most.
