On a Mac you can remove Smart Photo Editor by simply moving it into the Trash. Then open the Finder view, then click on Go. For Mac OS X Lion, hold down the Option key (ALT on non-Mac keyboards) and click on Library, and then Preferences. Earlier versions of OS X prior to Lion will have the Library folder visible in the Home Folder. Now scroll down and look for anything containing the name "anthropics photo editor" and also move it to the Trash. In the Finder view, go to your home folder. Then click on Library, then Application Support and then Anthropics . Move to trash the Photo Editor folder within the Anthropics folder.
On Windows Vista and Windows 7 it can be removed by clicking the start button and typing "remove programs" and the option "Add or remove programs" will come up. Choose this and follow the instructions.
On Windows XP go to the control panel and choose "Add or remove programs" and follow the instructions.
Another way to remove the software is to go to the "c:\Program Files" directory where Smart Photo Editor was installed and finding the folder, normally with a name such as "Smart Photo Editor". Now run the program in this folder called unins000 and the software will be removed.
To remove the gallery: Go to C:\Users\YOURUSERNAME\AppData\Local and delete the folder named PhotoEditor.

Yes, select the Preferences or Settings option in the menu to choose how color profiles are used. Smart Photo Editor is a color-managed application and will use your monitor color profile to display colors correctly on your monitor.
The Favorite Effects button on the right keeps track of all your favorite effects.
Any effect in the shortlist when you apply from the gallery will turn up here.
If there are any edits you frequently do (like a particular image treatment, some text you type in regularly, or even a set of area treatments), you can save them to turn up as a favorite. To do this, right click on the tab where you have done an edit and choose "Store Or Publish". You will be taken to the Tagging Effect panel, where you can give it a name and make it turn up in specific gallery sections. If you click "Tag For My Use Only" it will only be visible to you. If you click on Tag And Share Effect you will share it with the rest of the community and it will appear in all their galleries.
When an effect is saved the software prompts for whether the effect is for private use or should be shared with the community. When using effects in the software you are seeing either your own effects or the ones submitted to the community, and either way these are free for you to use without having to credit the creator.
