Top Free Digital Photo Editing Software

Updated on April 30, 2017

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 .

PhotoFiltre 7.1.0

PhotoFiltre is a complete image retouching software. It allows you to do simple or advanced tweaks to an image and apply many filters to your photos.. It is simple to use, and very easy to learn . The toolbar, giving you access to the standard filters with just a few clicks .

      Well Tom, two years ago when you published this article I downloaded this software and I am still making good use of it! It's indeed great. I guess it's not too late to say thank you!

      Great Hub! This is such useful information. I made the mistake of purchasing an expensive photo program and then found out after about the free software that's better! I've been using Picassa. I never even heard of these others. Thank you so much!

      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!

      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 !

    • Wakerra profile image

      Wakerra 4 years ago

      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

      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.

      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
