Eye2eye Britain Panoramic Edition

£40 inc VAT

Manufacturer: Eye2eye Software

Our Rating: We rate this 4 out of 5

Like looking at things? Don't like moving around? Then we've got just the thing for you: Eye2eye Britain Panoramic Edition. Peer past the faux-naif fonts and plinky-plonk music - which we find charming, in a homespun sort of way - and you will see an impressively comprehensive database of Britain's most stunning views.

Like looking at things? Don't like moving around? Then we've got just the thing for you: Eye2eye Britain Panoramic Edition. Peer past the faux-naif fonts and plinky-plonk music - which we find charming, in a homespun sort of way - and you will see an impressively comprehensive database of Britain's most stunning views.

Just glance at the map, pick somewhere you'd like to see, and click on it to be taken to a selection of high-quality photos of that area, together with some informative text describing local history and interesting points of trivia. There are more than 10,000 photos of Britain here, so there's no excuse for not knowing your stuff.

Best of all, a fair few of the pics are panoramic: you can shift the camera around to take in the whole 3D spectacle. It would be pushing it a bit to say it's just like being there, but it's not bad at all - we heartily recommend the view from the top of the Malvern hills. And you've always got the excuse that you're planning an energetic walking holiday rather than being a couch potato.

Worryingly, there's a favourable quote from Cherie Blair on the front of the box, but try not to let that bother you. This handy tool could help the kids with their geography homework without you having to drive them anywhere and skimming through it is embarassingly diverting even for grown-ups.

Save a fortune on coach fares and see the country in style with Eye2eye Britain. It's like an interactive photo album of all the places you never got around to visiting, and what could be better than that? It's not the cheapest piece of software in the world, however, so we'd advise you to take a look at some of the demo shots on the company's website before splashing out.

    Ashampoo Photo Commander 9

    Ashampoo Photo Commander 9 isn't much of an upgrade on the previous iteration, but Photo Commander was already a comprehensive photo organizer and editor.

    The Photosmart A526 is simple to use but very slow. The prints are worth the wait, though.
