Top photo editing software you must take a look

ou may find free software to edit and design images. Below the list of photo editing software you need to evaluate and sometimes it would be very useful.

1. PhotoScape

Many users recommended Photoscape as a favorite free photo editor. It contains lots of features, while remaining very easy to use. Photoscape provides a image viewer, photo editor, batch processor, image format converter, file renamer, screen capture tool, color picker, and more.

2. GIMP for Windows

GIMP is a popular open-source photo editor originally developed for Unix/Linux. It has similar interface features similar to Photoshop.

3. Paint.NET

Paint.NET is a free image and photo manipulation software for Windows 2000, XP, Vista, or Server 2003. Paint.NET features layers, painting and drawing tools, special effects, unlimited undo history, and levels adjustments. Paint.NET is completely free, and the source code is also available for free.

4. Serif PhotoPlus

You can download a completely free, fully-functional version of PhotoPlus 6. PhotoPlus 6 features an export optimizer, editable text, image slicing and image maps, selection tools, smart shapes, third-party plug-in support, red-eye removal tool, and photo enhancement tools.

5. Pixia

Pixia is another popular free painting and retouching software from Japan. It features custom brush tips, multiple layers, masking, vector- and bitmap-based drawing tools, color, tone, and lighting adjustments, and multiple undo/redo. 

6. PhotoFiltre

PhotoFiltre offers a simple, but elegant user interface and a lot of one-click image adjustments, filters, and effects. There is a built in image explorer panel for visually navigating your file system, basic drawing, painting, retouching and selection tools, and batch processing capabilities. PhotoFiltre is free for private, non commercial or educational use (including non-profit organizations).

7. Picasa

Technically, Picasa does not meet my criteria for a photo editor because it does not allow you to do pixel-level editing. However, I have received so many reader suggestions for Picasa, that I am including it here as an honorary mention.
