Photo-Editing Applications To Try

May 29, 2011

Article Review by Janet Dodrill

Do you work with digital images and need a photo editing software? Recently, I read a informative article on photo editors (Maine Antique Digest, May 2011, “Photo Editors” by John P. Reid) which, suggests good less-expensive alternatives to industry leader Adobe Photoshop, for under $100 or even free. The free photo editors are used online through your web browser, and they are:

Pixlr (www.pixlr.com)
FotoFlexer (www.fotoflexer.com)
Free Online Photo Editor (www.freeonlinephotoeditor.com)
Pho.to (www.pho.to)
MyTheme Animator (www.blibs.com/editor)
piZap (www.pizap.com)
Kizoa www.kizoa.com)
Splashup (www.splashup.com)
flauntR (www.flauntr.com)

Traditional software-based installed photo editors include:

Google Picassa 3 (picasa.google.com)
Adobe Photoshop Elements ($99.99, currently only $69.99 – Enter code ELEMENT11 at checkout.) (www.adobe.com/products/photoshopel)
Corel Paintshop Photo Pro ($99.99, currently only $39.99) (www.corel.com/servlet/Satellite/us/en/Product/1208716806081)

The author of the article recommends that last two mentioned. Photo editors in different price ranges are reviewed at TenTopReviews (www.photo-editing-software-review.toptenreviews.com).
