Latest version loaded with adware

Negative Comment by McLovin
about Photoscape Feb 2015

I used to really like this program, I thought it was great, but then I updated to the latest version, and it has this nasty little piece of adware in it called "roll around" the sounds innocent enough (though there is nothing mentioned about it in the install, and yes I do custom installation, and read everything in the agreements and everything else, I'm Linux programer, so I'm not stupid when it comes to these things), but as soon as you open your web browser, you're slammed with so many pop-overs, pop-unders, ads "rolling in" all over the screen, it's ridiculous.
I say stay away from this one, as far as you can!

Photoscape: best free & most professional photo-editing app

Positive Comment by em4020
about Photoscape and Paint.NET, Pixlr, Adobe Photoshop Express Jun 2011

Photoscape is in my opinion the best free and most professional photo-editing application, which I know.
If I want to select and to move a text object and change the font size in pictures I have best experience with PhotoScape. Beside many other very useful features you can perfectly select, move and manipulate text objects. This and the framing of text fields is a problem for many other free photo-editing software products as, Pixlr, Adobe Photoshop Express, GimpShop or IrfanView. My recommendation for this purpose (e.g. commenting of screenshots) and especially for the professional framing and renaming of large series of photos is Photoscape.
