Free Photo Software Listing

Thread starter #1
Well, just thought I would post a listing of some free photo editing software to use, since it gets asked often.

Some are free and some will allow you to try it before you buy it. This list is just a short listing of what is available - and believe me, there is a bunch! Maybe others will add to the list. Someone should make a sticky post about this once a good list is made!

I haven't tried all of these, but included them anyway for ya.


Look for a 30 day trial of Photoshop at the link below.

Also, here is a very nice photo organizing and viewing program that also has some simple editing features. I use this and it's nice.


Good links. Those should help someone who's looking for photo editting software. Anyone who has used any of them, comments would be great.

I put a link to this thread in the Tricks of the Trade sticky.

Google's Picasa

Guess I'll add to the laundry list which has been posted on the forum a few times . . .

Maybe someone that has used 'em all can organize them from better to best, or from least to most functions, or by ease of use, etc.
