My impression of Photo Impression 6 is that it does an okay job but could be better. First, the positives. It does an acceptable job of scanning in photos using my HP printer/scanner and is perfectly fine for scanning every day photos of good quality. It does an equally good enough job of downloading digital photos from my camera. It has the common tools for photo retouch and editing such as red eye removal, brightness/contrast, healing brush, etc. And it offers creativity options like frames and borders, edges and cookie cutters. But, and here is the it could be better part.

It was very confusing to learn and the help feature is sorely lacking. The clipboard feature is awkward to use because it requires multiple openings and closings of different windows. The view feature is just plain annoying because you have to close the view window and re-open in order to do any editing.

Overall, it does an acceptable job but I liked Photo Impression 4 better. At least I didn't spend extra money for this software because it came with my computer.
