What kind of free program can I use to edit photography pictures?
With photography becoming a major component of media nowadays, you are probably looking for programs to edit your photographs. There is lots of photography editing programs that are free and efficient.
Sue Chastain writes, On first glance, I thought Photoscape was going to be a dud, but I dug in deeper and realized why so many readers of this site have recommended it as a favorite free photo editor. It is jam-packed with features, while remaining very easy to use.But then she praises the software because of its services, Photoscape provides several modules including a viewer, editor, batch processor, Raw converter, file renamer, print layout tool, screen capture tool, color picker, and more. I’m very impressed overall at what has been packed into this free photo editor without sacrificing ease of use.
Chastain explains the privileges that the program has,Paint.NET features layers, painting and drawing tools, special effects, unlimited undo history, and levels adjustments. Paint.NET is completely free, and the source code is also available for free.What is really neat about Paint.net is that it is so easy to use. It provides basic needs for the average user of computers.
Serif Photo Plus:
It is not a popular software, mainly because it costs money to get the full software. Chastain explains,PhotoPlus SE features an export optimizer, editable text, layer effects, layer masks, a red-eye removal tool, special effects, versatile brushes, and photo enhancement tools. PhotoPlus SE can be upgraded to the full version of PhotoPlus, with many more features, for a modest price.
GIMP: I am trying not to play favorites here, but this is my favorite program for editing pictures. It is easy to use but it offers so much. Chastain writes,GIMP is a popular open-source image editor originally developed for Unix/Linux. Often lauded as the “free Photoshop,” it does have an interface and features similar to Photoshop, but with a steep learning curve to match. Because it’s volunteer-developed beta software, stability and frequency of updates could be an issue; however, many happy users report using GIMP for Windows without significant problems.I have personally never encountered any problems with GIMP and I was able to even create images for my blog. Yes, you read that right. I, a total novice, was able to create images from scratch using GIMP. If you are wondering what the heck the name stands for, David Peterson writes,GIMP is actually an acronym. It stands for GNU Image Manipulation Program. I know, you’re wondering what GNU is. That’s a name given by a group of programmers looking to create a completely free and open operating system. Imagine never having to pay for a copy of Windows or Mac OSX. That’s what the GNU programmers are after. Their group is associated with the Free Software Foundation, and they believe everyone should have access to free software.î Peterson, among many artists, likens GIMP to Photoshop (but for free, instead of paying over 500 dollars for software).
