Roxio's PhotoSuite 7.0 allows you to import, organise, edit and share digital photos. You can enhance or modify images, and create slideshows with music, transitions and special effects - with minimum fuss.

Other key enhancements include the ability to quickly import photos and video clips from a digital camera or camcorder, as well as the way you can alter a collection of photos simultaneously. PhotoSuite 7.0 can now turn multiple photos of a landscape into a panoramic scene and burn pictures, video clips and audio files to a CD, DVD or video CDs (with animated menus, buttons, chapters and background themes). Unfortunately, the software's core image-editing features are very limited. Inexperienced users will probably welcome PhotoSuite's task-driven interface, because you can apply a range of special effects quickly with a simple mouse-click.

Those familiar with image-editing apps will be disappointed, however, when they discover that they cannot access colour properties, add or delete layers or extend the workspace. In addition, there are no Web-optimisation controls for preparing photos for the internet, no support for plug-in filters and no HTML or JavaScript tools. These limitations, and a general lack of features, don't help PhotoSuite 7.0. As a result, other similarly priced competitors such as Adobe's Photoshop Elements, Ulead Systems' PhotoImpact XL or Jasc's Paint Shop Pro might suit your needs better.

STYLISTIC Q702

First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.

STYLISTIC Q572

For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.

LIFEBOOK UH574

The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

STYLISTIC Q702

The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.

STYLISTIC Q702

My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
