"Adobe Photoshop is a given in any designer’s wish list, and it comes with a host of features that allow for excellent and professional photo editing. The biggest obstacle to any designer who wants Photoshop is the price, which can be prohibitive. Fortunately there are a number of open source (and completely free) programs out there that do much of what Photoshop can, and sometimes more."
So you're just getting your feet wet with tweaking photos and you're finding that the handy online photo editors aren't cutting it and you're not quite ready to invest in the more expensive programs. Fortunately, there are a a wide variety of free programs you can use, and SixRevisions has rounded up 10 editors that won't cost you a dime. While the list contains many worthy contenders you should consider, I would not of included Photoshop Express owing to its online nature. The wonderful Picasa is also notably absent. Still, it's a good list and I'd suggest you try at least two or three of these programs to find the one that fits you. It won't cost you anything, and like any collection of programs, each have their own benefits. Anyone use a free photo editor that isn't on the list?
