Designed to be fun and easy to use, MGI PhotoSuite III Family Edition is a PC photography software suite that allows users to edit, enhance, organise, share and print their photos. The program enables easy capture of photos from scanners, digital cameras, CDs or the Internet, and provides a huge range of special effects and creative editing tools to allow budding photographers to transform their photos into works of art.

Stephen Mold, MGI’s European managing director, said, “It’s important for users to be able to fix and enhance their photos before printing, to make the most effective and efficient use of their printer. PhotoSuite III Family Edition’s user-friendly interface and helpful guides mean that even users who are new to photo software will be able to edit their pictures, add special effects and create cards, invitations and other projects in no time at all.”

MGI PhotoSuite III Family Edition includes step-by-step guides that take the user through the various stages of editing and printing their photos. Hundreds of high quality templates for creating greetings cards, postcards, photo collages, calendars, stationery and even slide-shows with music are provided, and a cataloguing feature helps the user to organise their pictures into albums for quick and easy retrieval.

The software is also ideal for sprucing up pictures taken on holiday or at weddings, christenings, birthday parties or school plays with frames, colours and special effects, or for restoring treasured family photos that may have faded or developed cracks and wrinkles over time.
