Free Image Editing for DSLR Users from Photoscape 3

Now here’s a photo editor that’s meant for the new photographer who has spent all his money on the brand new DSLR with not much left to buy the expensive Photoshop CS3.

Photoscape 3 is free yet also very capable. It distinguishes itself from the rest of the freeware pack by offering loads of impressive features that can work for budding photographers on a tight budget.

It supports RAW (and JPEG, PNG, GIF) and comes with pre-built templates for photo collages. It has a standard set of image enhancement features like red-eye removal, light/shadow refinement and contrast editing. There are fun features too such as fumetti or photo novels and Web comics.

Forget Photoshop here. It has its own completely different interface: a circular navigator is complemented by a tabbed nav on the top of the main screen. It takes some getting used to, but otherwise very intuitive.

You can view your photos in Photoscape, convert RAW to JPEG, make it your editor for resizing, cropping, color adjustment, white balance, etc. It can also batch edit multiple photos, even rename a whole bunch of pics, the works. Best of all, it’s free.
