Nowadays, there are plenty of image editing tools that provide you with various ways to improve the quality of your photos. One of them is Flare, a simple to use program that offers you a comprehensive number of effect presets and textures which let you intensely change the aspect of your pictures.

The application's interface is very easy to manage as it's nicely organized. First, you drag and drop the picture you wish to alter and, in this order, rotate, crop and add the necessary effects. A good thing about using Flare is that it allows you to take snapshots to your presets for later on reference.

Even though you have access to various effect presets, you can find even more on the homepage of the developer. If you wish to use the ones from the website, you have to download them one by one, a procedure that might cost you some time.

A feature that I would personally like to see in a future release of this program is to support batch processing. Having the possibility to edit a large number of photos at the same time (using the same effect presets) might come as a great advantage and a time-saving solution.

To conclude, Flare is a great tool for adding effects to your photos and cropping pictures. My belief is that it's worth acquiring this product since it offers such a variety of effect presets and quality output files.
