Strengths: Nearly all operations are easier to accomplish than in Photoshop. Tons of scalable 1 click fixes (skin smoothing, chromatic aberration removal, teeth brightening, exposure, batch operations, etc). All the benefits of Photoshop AND Lightroom, in 1 program. Low cost.
Weaknesses: Far fewer online tutorials than Adobe products
Absolutely LOVE this software! I own X2 & the newer X3 and they are the two pieces of software I miss the most after transitioning to Mac. Simple, as powerful as Photoshop CS4, and very easy to learn.
