The VideoPad Masters Edition for Win is a good tool for both amateur and professional photographers, but the lack of a variety of controls may turn off some people. If you aren't too familiar with software like this, then you'll probably want to read the user guide before you start using it. Many of the settings are hidden and not easy to see in the "General" view. It is recommended that you first try to use it on a computer with a screen with a high resolution before trying to work on a low resolution screen.
The videoPad is not perfect however, and it still lacks some basic features that other software packages have. Most of the controls still take up too much screen real estate. If you are going to be working at a computer with limited screen space, you may want to consider using a program such as Adobe Photoshop or CorelDraw. You'll also find that the software is fairly basic and has only the basic editing tools such as text, borders, etc. The graphics are pretty nice though and do the job well.
There are a lot of great photo editing programs out there that have more functionality than this one has and most of them cost less money than the VideoPad does. If you are looking for a simple, yet effective software package that can help you edit photos, then you may want to consider using the VideoPad Masters Edition for Win. There are also a few beginner's video editing tutorials available for those just learning the ropes on how to edit photos.
