Of the numerous photo editors suitable for new and amateur photographers, Free PixBuilder Studio Photo Editor provides almost all the features that you would need to import, edit and print your high quality photos.
Currently this free photo editor is available only for Windows based computers and portable versions. The software is being actively maintained and enhanced. Although the editing studio comes with most of the frequently used utilities, the number of effects can be extended by using plugins that can be downloaded from the website.
The Free Photo Decorator Software lets you create photo borders and funny photo cut outs very quickly. This is a very small software, built with the main intent of creating funny pictures and adding photo borders.
Like most other photo software, the Photo Decorator lets you capture pictures, resize, crop, warp or transform your photos easily. It also allows you to add frames, texts, balloons and other items quickly. It supports layers, like professional photo editing software, and hence professional tools like filters work well with this free photo software.
The free FotoSketcher Photo Software works like a professional Photoshop plugin providing a professional filter to create artistic sketch photos from regular pictures. You can convert any image into a very artistic sketch art using this stand alone photo software.
The free photo art software provides more than 25 effects, equivalent to professional Photoshop artistic filters & available in 23 different languages for download. It is completely intuitive and you can convert any image into professional looking artistic sketch photos.
Most modern digital cameras have the feature of adding geographical data onto your pictures. Common information includes the co-ordinates, altitude, time etc.
If you are not using any such geo tagging feature of your camera, you can use pictoGEO that works with GPS-data and allows you to view the location of your photo on virtual maps, such as Google Earth, many years after you took the picture.
This is a great software for kids and those learning to paint, draw or sketch on the computer without having to use costly devices like tablets and other touch devices.
I have used a few iPAD based apps for sketching, drawing and coloring but I would not give my costly iPAD to my toddler right now! Instead, I can have my kid use the cheap computer mouse and try her hands at coloring or sketching for now.
SmoothDraw is a free digital free-hand drawing software with some features of the most costly digital painting softwares. The coloring and drawing software provides tools like pen, pencil, dry media, airbrush, bristle brush, image hose etc for drawing and retouching pictures.
