Photoscape free photo editing program

This is the second blog post about free photo editing programs you can find online.

Photoscape is another great free program. 
This program  is easy to use, easy to navigate, and has some fun things to play with added in. Among the special filters you can process your pictures with, you can also do animated GIF and combine photos. Photoscape also gives you the ability to batch edit your photos. You can also do screen shots with it.

This hydrangea photo
is one of the first ones I took when I got my DSLR. It needs some post processing (PP) to look like it did in real life. I went to the “Bright/Color” tab clicked it and then went to “brightness” and chose “middle”. Then I adjusted the backlight to +75%. I'm happy with the way the picture looks now. I cropped it
with the easy to use crop feature, then I saved it. Photoscape saves the modified photo and saves the original, too. It lets you select the quality of the JPEG that you save, also. These are just a few of the features this program has.

I wanted to show you some of the filters included in this program for PP, so I played with the same photo after I had edited it.

The Box. I haven't seen anything like this on any of the free programs. I think it's pretty neat.

Crystallized-which I think is pretty cool.

There are several other filters in this program that I like, but these two are my favorites.
If you are looking for free photo editing programs, why not download this versatile program and give it a try. If  a techinically challenged person like me can get around in this program, anybody can use it.

I am loving these photo software reviews. There's such an overwhelming number of options out there and it's good to hear about some of them from an actual user. Thanks for posting!
