I have been surprised to read several negative reviews of that product, which I have found to be very useful. I have been using it since the very first days I switched to the Mac, in March 2004.

What I like is that Foto Trimmer is extremely easy to use: no need to study the handbook, it is very intuitive. Then it is very stable - I use it often every week, and I don't remember that it even once quit. And it has all the basic features which one needs: one can easily change the size of a picture, trim it, etc. - exactly what I need before using a picture on one of my websites.

True, it has a rather plain interface, but it does the job, it does it well, and it does it in an easy way: one does not need to be an expert to use it, unlike some other tools for images. I don't hesitate to give it the highest rate on each category!

Wow! Thanks JFM. Your payment is in the mail.

(That was a joke people! We really appreciate JFM's kind, unsolicited words. Our main goal with Foto Trimmer is to keep it simple and easy. We're not competing with Photoshop and we're not trying to be all eye candy with no possibility of getting anything done. Glad JFM appreciates the value!!)

Handy but superfluous! iPhoto does much more for free. .Mac members can download PhotoStudio X from thier idisks - a full featured Photoshop-ish application.

If you just want basic options you can even go for QuickImage. Choices gallore, so I would not advise paying for something like this.

Well, at least nobody can accuse us of rigging the comments of MacUpdate! I usually don't pay much attention to anonymous comments here. Users who have paid for Foto Trimmer have written to say it made their lives easier in one way or another, that its interface is really easy and efficient to use, that they could teach their Mom or grandmother or boss how to quickly resize a picture for posting to the web, etc.

Additionally, iPhoto is no longer free; it's a part of the $49 iLife suite. Not everyone is paying $99/year for .mac. And users who would like the same software running on their Mac OS X, Mac OS , and Windows machines can't with the products you mentioned. With Foto Trimmer, they can, and we encourage it.

Best, Brad

well it has all of iPhoto's features but 2: crashes all of the time and slowness when you have nore than 5 images in your "library". trimmer is conveniently missing both.

It's good but Imagewell does most of this stuff for free.

RE: Jack Flash...

This is why we offer a 30-day trial (which BTW, Jack Flash did not sign up for so he could not have tried the software, hmmmm...). If users think it's a joke after 30 days, they don't have to buy. If they like it enough to buy, we'll be honored to have them as paying customers.
