Editors' Review

PhotoScape is a free image editor that is designed to be fun and easy to use. It not only resizes, edits, and tweaks your digital snapshots and other image files but also creates slideshows and animated GIFs, captures screenshots, combines and splits images, and more. PhotoScape can do lots of fun things to your pictures, and its modules, circular feature selector, and video tutorials take care of the "easy" part.

We mentioned PhotoScape's unique, circular module selector, which duplicates and adds to the features on the program's toolbar, except the first tab, PhotoScape, which is the home screen (though all the tools are available on the toolbar via the toolbar menu). Another unique and interesting feature displays a photo grabbed from Flickr. You can click to change the image or turn the feature off. The Viewer tool's tree view and thumbnails helped us make quick work of finding and loading our images; the tree view persists in the upper left corner, too, when you move on to PhotoScape's various features, starting with the Editor. The Editor collects the most frequently needed editing tools in a console, but the compact view hides a plethora of options; for instance, the Filter menu has 25 items, and nine of those items have submenus. The Editor tools can do everything from adding objects to removing moles: we had quite a laugh when the random wallpaper image we opened turned out to be screen legend Anne Francis and her famous mole! But we could also paint, draw, stamp, and make mosaics out of our images.

More fun: Animated GIFs are easy to make with PhotoScape, including resizing images, changing the timing and alignment, and automatically resizing all photos to the first image's size. The Page editor includes a huge range of templates for creating frames, borders, and collages, while the pop-up Raw Converter converts RAW images from DSLR cameras into JPEGs. A cool Paper Print tool prints letters, music sheets, calendars, planners, and more. Be sure to check out the online Face Search tool. PhotoScape promises and delivers a fun photo tool that's also easy to use.

"brilliant,just get it!"

May 19, 2010  |  By donald1066

 |  Version: PhotoScape 3.4

Pros

I have searched all over the net and believe me,this is the best FREE editor for effects etc.

Cons

It could do with more frames, but apart from that it's worth downloading.

Summary

Nobody can tell anyone which is the best really,all of us have our own views/thoughts on which is good,bad or excellent. So just give it a try and scroll around it's interface .... you just might like it ..... I certainly did.

 |  Version: PhotoScape 3.4

Pros

Easy to use, best free one I have found&like others have said, being cheapo,this is a wonderful program! I didn't have any problems navigating the program,but that's just me,jump in&go!Have problems,read the manual! THANK YOU CNET!

Cons

"Excellent Free Graphics Editiing Programme"

April 09, 2010  |  By nznovice

 |  Version: PhotoScape 3.4

Pros

I am EL Cheapo in that I prefer to use free programmes rather than buy them, lol, and I use this programme a lot, more so than I use Gimp. Gimp has way more functions, however Photoscape is easier to learn and intuitive.

Cons

Some of Gimps and Photoshoppe's functions would be excellent, and packaged in Photoscape's simple and clean interface, with its easy-to-learn functionality, would be ideal. Add dodge/burn and layers!

Summary

Great programme, I love it, and it's one of my main tools in my photo-editing arsenal. Quick to install, and it's a good-looking programme, but best of all, I quickly and easily find what I need, and with minimal playing around, I achieve neat effects.
