Works fine once I figured out how to change the frame color - just double click. It's very simple to use; I've been using it regularly, and I'm very pleased with the results. It has quite a few filter choices and color options, and in my opinion it's a good buy.


I really like how you can dial back the different effects, up the vignette, etc for a customized look.
