Just thought I could start up a topic on where we can find good photo editing software that is free. Don't want anything fancy just something that I can cut some stuff out of a picture and maybe rotate a picture a little and little stuff like that no fancy shadowing stuff and all that.

IrfanView is a good, free application with casual editing features. It also will open just about any graphic file around:

You may also want to try Picasa2, which is a free download from Google.

I'd also recommend Irfanview.
If you want something with a few more options, you can try XnView.

You're welcome, Klinkaroo.
You can find a few more suggestions in this thread, Freeware Replacements For Common Commercial Apps.
Just look under the heading Graphics Design and Editing.
All the programs in that thread are recommended by our members, and spyware free.

EDIT: I thought you said "Photoshop" rather than "Paintshop"! I'll have my 5 year old read the posts to me from now on....I'm confident she'll do a better job than me! LOL! :thumbsup:
IMHO, I downloaded Google's "Picasa", to many thumbnails that wanted to load up before I could do anything. It also wanted to find everything automatically, and create a thumbnail of it for viewing.....I got tired of fidgeting with it and just uninstalled it.

TBH, I haven't heard anything bad about GIMP and Irfanview. They both seem to be very popular, and have gotten "good" reviews from people....although I haven't used either one of them. I just stick with PS now :flowers:

War produces veterans, wounded both physically and mentally. They have sacrificed for us.....and it is now our job to help these veterans, as they have already helped us in ways we will never know, in ways that we cannot fathom, and in ways that we take granted every day.

Paint Shop Pro 7 is gone. Please, do not email me about this.
It's no longer free, now that Corel took over. I am checking
to see if they will allow me to offer it. Keep checking back.

Hello,

There is always Paint.net. It's on the cusp of being one of the big time image and photo renderers, but it doesn't rob all your RAM like the big boys do. I deleted MS Paint, and now Paint.net is my Windows default editor. That really sped it up, and with the amount of tools it yields, and If it werent for the fact that I paid money for PS CS2, I rarely would even open the big hogs.

But, it doesn't do everything, but I assure you, it is great for taking any photo, and removing the red eye, whitening the teeth, and coloring the eyes resizing it to a web manageable size, and saving it all in about 5-7 minutes. That is why I like it so much. There practically no learning curve if you are even just a little familiar with one of the other editors.


nos :thumbsup:
When I'm right, I'm right....
And when I'm wrong, I could have been right....
So I'm still right, cause I could have been wrong.

Microsoft Expression Graphic Designer March 2006 CTP it's a cross between Photoshop and Illustrator. Does both Raster and Vector Images.

It's free for now if you check http://betanews.com and search you can find it.
