Thread: Cheap / Free alternatives to PS?

  1. #1

    Default Cheap / Free alternatives to PS?

    I hope this is the right place to ask

    I need a program to crop, tweak the brightness and contrast a bit before printing, and not much else. Occasionally I need to make a specific area blur to protect identities, but I doubt if I need the full power of PS.

    I see some programs available for free on PC magazines, are they any good, any recommendations?

    Thanks

    Pete

    Thanks, I will try Photoplus 6...

    PS: I actually have CS 3 on my PC, but lately the save as dialogue box simply goes behind the main program and I cannot continue with the program and need to quit it via task manager, highly frustrating

    free trial ware or shareware is not Freeware.
    it will stop you from using after a while or have limited functions.

    try Gimp or Irfanview
