List of 5 Best Photo Editing Software Free 2017

If you are into video blogging or inforgraphic designer then I am sure that you will find these software very much useful. Recently I have also shared a post on free web recording software which can be handy for a YouTuber who can combine these software and make their video much more appealing. 


Photoshop is the finest digital editing software available today, however, many may wonder the same thing. Photoshop is not for free. Yes, exactly, though what many may not know is the face that you can get a perfectly fine and free copy of the Photoshop CS2 from Adobe without paying for it. All that you need to do is go to a and sign up for an ID and proceed to downloading it.

Photoshop is the best software you can get, which offers a number of features and options for editing almost all image formats. While CS2 is an older version, it works fine for normal on-the-go editing of your photos.


Pixlr is an offline and online editing tool that works within your browser. What makes it highly unique and usable is the fact that it adopts several same features from Photoshop. The software si also available as an app for both Android and iOS, which means you can easily make use of it on a tablet and smartphone. The user is able to upload his/her images or create them in the browser via Pixlr app. And it’s absolutely free.


A lot of people recommend GIMP for all sorts of photo editing needs like magic wand style tools, vast library of plugins and layer support. However, unfortunately, GIMP is packed with so many times that it may get complicated to use at times and may learn a decent learning curve. Gimp also supports various number of file formats, including the Photoshop’s .psd extension. It is probably the closest to Photoshop feature wise, and besides being available on Mac and Windows, it is also available for Linux.


If you are comfortable with ads and being sort of limited to working with only .jpg and .png format, the free version of this software is a good alternative to Photoshop. With features and interface similar to both Pixlr and Photoshop, Sumopaint can easily help you spruce and tweak up your images. Software is able to work both online (with browser) and offline. The free version is definitely working taking look at.


If you are looking for a Photoshop-like advanced feature list software, PicMonkey is not a great option for you. However, if you wish to edit photos for fun, this software is an easy piece to work with. Adding clip art onto your images, or adding party hat to your latest selfie, the editor can do it all. Other than this, PicMonkey allows for all basic editing tools such as cropping, rotating, resizing photos and adding effects.

So, what is your favorite photo editing software online? You can write a comment below and share your experience of the popular image editing software you  have used so far. In case there is any paid software which can be far better, you can share the same too.

  1. Those apps can be really handy. But I don't think it's a great deal to find goods photo editors for Windows phone like Macphun. I've had some major problems finding them for my Mac, so now I share them kindly.
