Recommendation for image processing graphics software RRS feed

  • Question

  • User881333916 posted

    Can anyone recommend a good cheap software package that does image processing?  I don't want to spend a fortune to buy Adobe PhotoShop CS4.  The software should do basic image processing functtions like cutting out a piece of an image and pasting it into another image, pixel editing, crop, resize, brightness and contrast, adding more white to a whole image, etc.  It should be able to input and output images in a few formats, such as JPEG.

    Hoo Boy, I downloaded paint.net, played around with it a little bit, and I love what I see so far!  I'll read the documentation and see if it can do everything I need it to do.

    I downloaded GIMP and installed it.  You're right, there is a LOT of stuff in GIMP.  The help file is installed separately.  A bug:  Desktop Help didn't work until I selected "online help".  Then desktop help started to work!

    Thanks so much for the tips!  If anyone else knows about any other image processing software, please let me know.
