Other photo edit software

There are lot of photo edit software. We introduce some of them here.

Professional Photo Editor

When it comes to the best professional photo-editing software, experts agree that Adobe Photoshop CS2 is the de facto industry standard. But, this is a $650 professional-grade software package, and you might need to take a class in order to overcome the steep learning curve. Photoshop CS2 is capable of almost any type of modification you desire, but it is certainly not easy to learn or understand.

Microsoft Digital Image Suite 2006 is Microsoft's photo-editing software. Microsoft is also offering its photo editor packaged as the Microsoft Digital Imaging Suite Anniversary Edition for around $60. This package includes a value pack with around $200 worth of offers to celebrate Microsoft's tenth year in the digital imaging industry.

Free photo-editing software

One of the most well known free photo editors is The GIMP (http://gimp.org), which stands for GNU Image Manipulation Program. This free shareware was first developed by a couple of Berkeley students in 1996. Since then, volunteers have continued to write improvements. It is available for Unix/Linux platforms, as well as Windows (98/2000/NT/XP) and Mac operating systems (OS X). More than one reviewer likens The GIMP to Photoshop CS2. It has tools for manipulating image layers, as well as adding effects and filters. Plus, it provides transformation tools to rotate, flip and scale images. Numerous plug-ins and extensions let this software do almost everything the more expensive programs do.

Another good free photo editor is IrfanView (http://www.irfanview.com). This software is for Windows computers only, but it is supported by a range of Windows operating systems (95/98/Me/2000/NT and XP), so it's a good option for those with an older computer
