Free image editing software...

This week we are going to present you several options when it comes to (truly) free image editing software.

We are starting with Photoscape.

Other free image editing programs have similar features but Photoscape is the first one I have found has a clone stamp tool (see the video at the end of this post).

It also has a bunch of tools that I like - batch tools (edit, resize, rename), Face Search (it will search for similar faces on your computer and online), and a RAW converter.

Here are a few more key features:

♦ Viewer: View photos in your folder, create a slideshow

♦ Editor: resizing, brightness and color adjustment, white balance, backlight correction, frames, balloons, mosaic mode, adding text, drawing pictures, cropping, filters, red eye removal, blooming, clone stamp

♦ Page: Merge multiple photos on the page frame to create one final photo

♦ Combine: Attach multiple photos vertically or horizontally to create one final photo

♦ Animated GIF: Use multiple photos to create a final animated photo

♦ Splitter: Slice a photo into several pieces

♦ Color Picker: Zoom in on images, search and pick a color

♦ Paper Print: Print lined, graph, music and calendar paper

You can learn more about Photoscape on their website, check out sscreen shots, and download it here.

This video is a very good demonstration of how well their clone stamp tool works. As usual, subscribers will need to return to the blog to watch it (as it doesn't push through with your subscription).

The changing names on the book was pretty slick!
