Everyone knows that Photoshop is the best photo editing software but it is very expensive and not very easy to learn or use . If you learn to master the tools in these freeware programs you will have no need for Photoshop at all.

When looking for a good free digital photo editing software I look for tool within these programs and what they can do . I look for how easy it is to use and how good are the tools , also I look for digital photo editing software that will do more than just edit photos.

I have found a great collection of digital photo editing software that I think are the best at what they can do and all are very easy to use, with many useful tools and filters within them .

I hope you will find some of them if not all of them very useful for all your graphic and photo needs .

HI Kash

I thought I'd see what you have been up to recently here on hubs. I've not heard of this software, but the graphics you've done certainly rock. I'm always reluctant to try something new, because you've to find all the buttons, where as with Coral10 that I've used for about tenyears I'm at home with where everthing is. I will take a look at this, not that I do a lot of graphics these days.

nice hub, useful and informative voted up.

cheers Tony

kashmir56 4 years ago from Massachusetts Author

Hi Tony my friend nice to see you,Yes i know what you mean,sometimes i to see a new graphic software and may try it and it takes some time to learn where everything is and how to use it. But Coral 10 is a great graphic program so if you feel comfortable using that than that is what you use.Thanks so much for stopping by and to for your nice comments ! Have a great weekend my friend !

These look like very useful pieces of photo editing software for those who use the Windows platform. I am currently using a Mac, so they won't work on my laptop, but I'm tempted to borrow my husband's computer to try the PhotoFiltre software. It looks like a nifty program, and your reviews are very helpful!

I say GIMP is the best freeware you'll ever get. What's unique about GIMP is it can even run on Linux. Further, there are lots of custom GIMP brushes and scripts available for free. If you are a Photoshop lover, but want a freeware instead, then GIMP is surely your pick!

By the way, great hub, kashmii56

wheelinallover 4 years ago from Central United States

For about a year I have been saying if you can't find it on hub pages you can live without it. For about a month I have been looking at several programs which people are charging for which do the same thing as the programs you show in your blog.

I had trouble learning the nuances of photoshop 12 years ago so feel I would never pick them all up now. The photo editor currently used won't let me do what I want. It also has taken about two hours minimum per photograph for what I have done.

Voting up awesome and downloading as well as sharing with business friends.

Kashmir56,

You have done an incredible job on this list and look forward in trying them out. Currently use Photoshop for my complex edits and Picassa for fast fun edits. Also, Chrome users can get thousands of photo edit programs using the Chrome App Store. Very useful list, one that you should expand on. Take Care

Hi Kashmir,

You wrote a useful article and introduced me to software I'd not heard of before. I have been using a free image editor for years called Irfanview. It is very capable, but sometimes there are wishes for additional features such as putting text into a curve. Thanks for the information.

Wakerra profile image

GIMP is what i use. Its kind of like a really dummied down version of Photoshop. I'm not sure how it fairs with altering photos or making graphics, I just use it to color a lot of my sketches. Though I really do miss the great filters, brushes and features Photoshop had, Gimp makes a well enough alternative. Before I had Gimp, I practiced some with Paint.net. I would suggest that freeware to beginners, or those practicing in Paint. Paint.net is a lot like Paint, but offers savable layers and some other basic intro-to-advanced digital coloring programs


kashmir56 profile image

Hi Wakerra nice to see you, Gimp is a very good piece of freeware and it much easier to use lighter on your system has well. Thanks so much for stopping by and to for your nice comments !

Fabulous hub Tom! I had no idea that photo software like this was available for free and I can't wait to give them a try. I'm not great at photos but I do like mucking around and see what I can do with them, so I think I should have some fun with the ones you've mentioned. As you say, photoshop is so difficult and I've never managed to get my head around it! So I have high hopes for these freebies!!

Excellent hub + voted up + shared!
