Photo Editing Softwares Do WONDER for You

How many times that we took a picture which was looking very nice on camera screen but disappointment hit us when we see on computer screen (bigger screen than camera screen). Well, that time is gone because I bring you a list of free and paid top favorite softwares to bring the professional look to your photos.

Free / Open Source Software
Windows, Mac, and Linux versions. A multitude of tools and features. RAW compatibility. Plug-ins. Device support.

Potentially complex for the uninitiated. Somewhat cramped interface. Requires plug-ins to match Photoshop's features.

Bottom Line:
The OS-agnostic GIMP brings high-end photo editing to users for zero dollars, but only the dedicated should walk this deep, complex road.

Superb integration with online galleries. Excellent face recognition. Geo tagging. Polished interface. Support for RAW camera files. Syncs local edits with online images. Mac and Linux versions available. Free.

Facebook upload requires plug in. Histogram not editable.

Bottom Line:
Not only is Picasa the best entry-level photo editor, organizer, and sharing tool you could ask for, it's also free, and it runs on every major desktop operating system.

Now with face recognition and retouching, Windows Live Photo Gallery can stand up proud against the likes of Apple iPhoto and Google Picasa.
