Free Photo Editing Programs

David Nield from Field Guide published a list of free photo editors that have some of the same features as Adobe Photoshop. I have not personally used any of these programs, but Nield does a nice job demonstrating the interfaces through screen captures and description of the features of these programs:

  • Adobe Photoshop Express
  • GIMP
  • Pixlr
  • Paint.net
  • PicMonkey

If you do experiment with one of these, I would be very interested in hearing your impressions and first-hand reflection on the adequacy of a given program to do more than just basic cropping and color correcting.
