Photoscape - image editor suite

Submit portable freeware that you find here. It helps if you include information like description, extraction instruction, Unicode support, whether it writes to the registry, and so on.

Photoscape - image editor suite

#1 Post by trpplayer79 » Thu Jun 28, 2007 10:20 am

Photoscape is a tool for viewing, editing, printing, combining and capturing images.

I've tried this software and it seems to work when you extract the setupfile with universal extractor.

I didn't see if the software wrights something in the register.
how do you guy's controle this?

Hello. I use Sandboxie to test applications for portabillity.
This app is writing several files in the folders you are viewing. I hate that behaviour. So, i disabled the option to create a cache database. Further it writes a file in the folder local settings/application data. The settings are stored in the application folder and not in the registry.
I will take a closer look at the application itself, but it seems useful, although i don't like that it wants to call home everytime it start's

Hi Ennovy,

I just tested this app, but it doesn't seem to write anything to Local Settings\Application Data.

If you still have the RegShot output, would appreciate it if you could post it here.

Thanks!

Hello Andrew,

I see you have added this application to the database and just now I read your posting concerning Photoscape.

I did not keep any information about this. All I remember is that you have to disable the creation of a cache database because this is not saved in the application folder but every folder you browse will be messed up with these files. I don't know if this behaviour can be changed.
In local settings/application data i found a log file.

Oddly Softonic is listing a portable version. It's not listed on the softpedia homepage, so I'm not sure what this is.

Still not portable (in my limited testing). Also, they added optional adware to the installer.

I retested PhotoScape 3.7 under Win10 -- it can be extracted to get around the adware, but saves settings to appdata as phoobj.cfg, favorite.lst, and photoscape.cfg. The available settings are fairly basic and represent whatever selections you made the last time you ran the program (no way to set defaults). As a result, a program that just deletes the whole AppData folder would be effectively portable.

As to the latest version (PhotoScape X), I didn't test mostly because it's on the Microsoft Store, which I recommend avoiding.
