Editing on the go

Keep an image editor on your USB drive with this basic program.

SunlitGreen PhotoEdit Portable is a lightweight program that allows simple corrections and changes to digital images. The program won't replace more full-featured software like Photoshop, but it's a great choice for putting the finishing touches on your images.

The program's interface is plain and intuitive, with menus and a toolbar across the top and a large area for viewing the image you're working on. Too many image editing programs we've seen have had fancy-looking interfaces at the expense of usability, and we're happy to say that SunlitGreen PhotoEdit doesn't fall into this trap; all of its features are easy to find and use. The program offers all the typical editing tools, letting you adjust levels, contrast, curves, brightness, color balance, and saturation. You can also flip, rotate, crop, and resize images. SunlitGreen PhotoEdit comes with a built-in Help file, but unfortunately none of its pages would load. Anyone who's used any kind of photo editor before should have no problem figuring it out, but less experienced users will likely want to seek out some additional information on basic image manipulation. Overall, SunlitGreen PhotoEdit doesn't really bring anything new to the table, but it will definitely meet the needs of users looking for a basic, portable program for image editing. At 1.41MB, it's a perfect choice to keep on your USB drive for on-the-go image changes and corrections.

SunlitGreen PhotoEdit comes as a ZIP file and is accessible after extraction with no need to install. We recommend this program to all users.
