Photo Software for Your Digital Images
If you’re just starting out in digital photography, you may be worrying a lot about which digital camera to get. While that is important, do remember that there is another element – image editing. After digital photos are taken, they can (and should) be cleaned up using an image editing program. In this article, we’ll take a look at the various types of photo software available in the market.
Beginner Photo Editing Software
Personally, I rely on a great tool called Ulead PhotoImpact 10. This program allows you to all sorts of image effects to your photos using clean, simple-to-use wizards and menus. What’s more, it’s one of the cheapest commercial grade photo editing packages I know of.
Advanced Photo Editing Software
Free Photo Editing Software
One of the best programs I know of is the GIMP. It’s a nice, clean image editor originally used under the UNIX operating system but has now been distributed for Windows. You can download it here.
Photo Management Software
One of the best programs for this purpose is Adobe Photoshop Album 2.0. It’s my program of choice and I really like the easy to use drag-and-drop capabilities, as well as attractive, clean user interface. Other good options include Ulead Photo Explorer 8.5 and Google’s Picasa.
