Photo Splash is an approachable and interactive program made to help you add highlights to your photographs in order to enhance specific sections, or to apply filters to the entire picture.
The installation procedure is a fast and simple job that shouldn't impose any difficulties. Once it's over, you are greeted by a pro-grade interface with a clear-cut structure that lets you get started by opening a file.
It automatically loads several filters and lets you preview effects in real time, so all you have to do is choose the effect you're most comfortable with and use a color brush to apply it to the original image (colored or mono brush).
When it comes to each brush type, you can adjust the size, hardness and opacity, as well as activate smart brushing mode. Plus, you can tweak the foreground and background transparency, brightness, contrast, blue tone, saturation and color shift.
It's also possible to zoom in and out of the picture, undo and redo your actions, invert colors, compare differences between the original and new picture by placing them side by side, copy it to the Clipboard or print it, change the UI background color, as well as save the new picture to file by specifying the size (original, normal, small).
We haven't come across any stability issues in our tests, thanks to the fact that the utility didn't freeze, crash or display error messages. Its impact on the overall performance of the PC was minimal, since it needed low CPU and RAM to work properly.
To conclude, Photo Splash comes loaded with intuitive and interesting features for applying image filters or just highlighting image parts, and it should especially be appealing to users less experienced with graphic editing software.
