High End Photo Editing for Free

High End Photo Editing for Free

By Richard Hay for Windows Observer

We recently asked our TechTalk contributors to recommend a favorite FREE application or tool that they currently use. This post is Richard Hay’s response to our request.
–PC Pitstop.

As for freeware – one I use almost daily to edit and create graphics for the site and other uses is Paint.net – http://www.getpaint.net/

The capabilities it has easily compare to what you would typically see in high end photo editing software.

Here is the “About” description from the website:

Paint.NET is free image and photo editing software for PCs that run Windows. It features an intuitive and innovative user interface with support for layers, unlimited undo, special effects, and a wide variety of useful and powerful tools. An active and growing online community provides friendly help, tutorials, and plugins.
It started development as an undergraduate college senior design project mentored by Microsoft, and is currently being maintained by some of the alumni that originally worked on it. Originally intended as a free replacement for the Microsoft Paint software that comes with Windows, it has grown into a powerful yet simple image and photo editor tool. It has been compared to other digital photo editing software packages such as Adobe® Photoshop®, Corel® Paint Shop Pro®, Microsoft Photo Editor, and The GIMP.
