Photo editing software

by magi09 / February 26, 2016 11:59 PM PST

I’ve already try to use Adobe CS6. But I’m looking for a good and FREE new photo editing software that works in Windows.
Suggestions are well appreciated.

there are major differences

both have some of the same features but work differently so if you are used to photoshop, there will be a learning curve. Most who grew up on photoshop look down on Gimp. most who grew up on Gimp, look down on photoshop. It is the same argument you see when comparing any software from operating systems to browsers. When you are used to doing stuff one way, you are going to hate anything different.

Photoshop CS6 will be better for you. You can easily edit any photo by this software. It's really awesome.

Other alternatives

It depends on what you want to accomplish, if you're interested in design, creating artwork or you're more focused on productivity and batch editing.

You didn't say why you gave up on Photoshop. If you didn't like its interface, I don't think you'll be thrilled with GIMP. There's no point in repeating what others already mentioned, so I'm going to recommend other tools worth checking out.

Fotor has a desktop version for Windows and has a pretty good set of features. Good basic edits, a good range of effects and an option to create collages.

BatchPhoto is an alternative to Photoshop from a batch processing perspective. It can resize, watermark, convert or rename dozens of images at once. It also has features to reduce noise, sharpen your photos or adjust the light intensity.

Hope it helps.
