Photo editing on netbooks is certainly possible. Mini computers are becoming more and more popular. Due to their low cost to purchase, compactness, and mobility, they are so popular that even their lack of overall performance is not a problem for most buyers, and demanding and resource-intensive software applications like photo editing are actually not intended for netbooks.
Installing software can also be a challenging process, since these compact computers don’t possess CD drives. However, the worldwide rapid increase in sales in the last year is proof that limited usability is acceptable compared to the clearly lower price and higher level of mobility. With Xtreme Photo & Graphic Designer 2, MAGIX has cultivated a higher level of usefulness for these small computers in the area of photo editing, since the download version of the program makes installation without a CD drive very unproblematic. The world’s fastest graphics engine also has the lowest impact on resources and enables demanding design and optimization of photos without being held back by lower computing power.
Vector-based image editing on netbooks
Most often, numerous photo editing programs are needed for editing graphical elements, whether for websites or presentations. The strength of MAGIX Xtreme Photo & Graphic Designer 2 is that it is able to process a wide spectrum of tasks. The vector-based photo editing supports every step of work, from creation of individual graphics to designing HTML pages, including personally developed Flash animations – even if the technical requirements are severely limited. With MAGIX Xtreme Photo & Graphic Designer 2, a netbook becomes a compact tool that is able to guarantee the user mobility as well as creative freedom, and equips him or her for any graphic and photo editing challenge that comes along. MAGIX Xtreme Photo & Graphic Designer 2 is a great example of how the right software can give low-performance netbooks more power to process advanced photo editing tasks.
