PhotoInstrument is an easy-to-learn and powerful master graphic editor that is used to process digital photographs. With only a few clicks, anyone can solve the majority of digital photo dilemmas and do things such as Draw MakeUp, Photo Retouching and Photo Editing.

It also makes users' photos look like they were taken by a professional photographer. If a person ever wonders how to easily touch up their pictures so that they look beautiful on Instagram or Facebook, this software is the answer.

An Easy Interface

Unlike other photo editing tools on the market, another thing that makes PhotoInstrument stand out from the rest is its interface. The program’s interface has been clearly designed to make editing and retouching operations intuitive and simple. Processes that are traditionally complicated, such as skin clearing and object removal, have been made easy even for people with no or limited knowledge of basic picture editing techniques.

All the tools and brushes have been grouped in a single panel, leaving the image viewer in all of the remaining window. This allows the photo-editing tool to provide users with a one-window interface that is certainly one of the main attractions of this tool.


There is more to this software than just usability. PhotoInstrument provides a number of functions and features that are worth highlighting. These can be classified into two categories that include photo retouching and editing and makeup tools. Although a number of these enhancing tools could be classified in either category, others have been clearly designed to eliminate skin blemishes and other imperfections.

Examples of tools that are designed for this task include Glamour Skin, Healing Brush and Skin Cleaner. If portraits are what a person mainly has to deal with, PhotoInstrument is certainly an application to consider.

People can also utilize this program to perform other less artistic tasks such as adding a watermark or text to their pictures, overlaying two images into one, converting between formats and batch-resizing their entire photo collection.

The program supports a number of plug-ins that are Photoshop-compatible. It also supports more than twenty image formats that include JPG, PNG, TIF, BMP, TGA, PCX, ICO, EXR and Adobe Photoshop PSD.

Good Learning Curve

Another reason why PhotoInstrument is a great alternative to a number of other photo editing tools is that it has a fast learning curve while offering users more extensive, pro-like functionality. This is made possible through short video tutorials that will teach people how to use PhotoInstrument in just a few minutes. Aside from that, it supports numerous languages such as English, Korean, German and many more.
