No need to buy expensive, fancy-pantsy Photoshop. Try these top 5 free photo editing programs to edit, perfect and enhance your photos!
Photoshop Express is the web version of image editing software Photoshop and only recently became available free of charge. Take advantage of it—you'll find the same excellent quality you'd expect from the original Photoshop but without the big price tag.
Picnik is easy to use and offers versatile image editing tools and lots of creative effects, including shapes and frames.
Pixia is photo-fixing software that features superior editing technology. Originally developed in Japan for anime and manga, Pixia offers many great artistic features that can be applied to any image and thanks to worldwide demand, it's now available in ten languages, including English.
As you might expect from a photo-editing program owned by Google, Picasa is intuitive and super easy to use. With a good photo that requires little fine-tuning, you can get professional quality results in seconds, but Picasa isn't the best program for images that would benefit from heavier editing.
There's been a lot of comparison between GIMP and Photoshop Express. Like Photoshop Express, GIMP is incredibly versatile and offers lots of tools that will appeal to all skill levels. Since they're both free, take them for a spin to test and compare the tools and functionality for yourself.
