Fun photo editing software with tools for photo enhancements and repairs.

An extremely popular and feature-rich image editor: PhotoScape's claim to fame is its amazing list of great features, ease of use and extremely cool effects it can apply to a range of different image formats. With support for RAW image format, it also has native support for JPEGs, PNG files, GIF and even animated GIF files.

With a range of free templates included with this image editor, amazing things can be done with your photographs.

The intuitive and striking user interface of PhotoScape truly sets itself apart from rivals. Within the interface, you can optimize photos, view a slideshow of them, touch them up and print photos as a collage. There are also a list of filters available from within PhotoScape and special effects can be applied to your images with ease.

Also included with PhotoScape is a file renamer, color picker and a screen capture utility. Another cool thing about this image editor are the pretty icons it includes. Standard image editing tools like paintbrush, erase, resizing, brightness and color adjustment, white balance, backlight correction, frames, balloons, mosaic mode, adding text, drawing pictures, cropping, filters, red eye removal, blooming, clone stamp more are included.

Installation note: During the first few steps of installing PhotoScape on your PC, you may be asked to install 'additional offers', all of which are unnecessary and we recommend declining.
