Free Picture Editing Program
Picture Editing Freeware
First off, when I say free I mean no cost you ever. Free means free when I say it. I consider no money out of your pocket or mine as free. When I say no money out of pocket I mean it is not one of those programs you can try for 30 days then the trail ends unless you pay for it. You know the kind they get you to fall in love with the program then a box pops up & says your trial is over you must pay to continue to use this program. By that time you love the program & have used it for certain things but it's not important to you you feel you must pay for it so then you just move on, that is so annoying! I am talking about the kind of program that is a great program you love to use but is also 100% free all the time. If that is your idea of free as well then you will love this free image editing program. I work with photos almost everyday so the most common task I have is resizing or rotating a picture. With that idea in mind I thought it would be a great idea to share one of my favorite programs with you.
This will be a sort of guide how to use the program to do a few basic things that will be useful for everyday use.
First of course is to download the free program:

Last but Certainly Not Least
Last but certainly not least is one of my all time favorite things you can do with this program. I have a digital camera & when I take picture at the highest quality I have pictures that are huge in size. When I take the photos off my camera I have to re-size them all. Each of the hundreds of photos have to be re-sized smaller so I can use them. This program allows you to re-size all the files at one time. Yes, you can re-size a lot of photos at once with this program. That is what i will show you next is how to re-size photos in a folder.
Batch Conversion-Select Folder of Pictures to Add
Select Output Folder to Save Resized Photos
Select New Size
Click Start Batch Conversion to Resize Your Photos
You Have Resized Hundreds of Photos Quickly & Easily
You Have Re-sized Hundreds of Photos Quickly & Easily
Now the best part is you have lots of free time to use working with all your re-sized photos. I hope you enjoy this program as much as I do. Let me know what you think.

One of the easiest ways to change a room is to change something dramatic. I love to find diy projects around the house
