Photo Editing Software

Post by Al » Sat Jul 04, 2009 1:57 am

Hi All

I need to get hold of a new photo-editing program, as was wondering if any of our members
could recommend any :?:

Just for use in re-sizing / cutting & cropping Images for the site :grin:

You can either post a reply here or email / PM me :dup:

Thanks for your help

Regards

Al :cool:

Hi Al.

Many of the Photoshop brands are very good, but I use the Magix Series which does all you need plus more. Then again for basic photo fixing I tend to use the Windows Photo Gallery facilities, which comes with Vista.

I use Adobe Photoshop Elelements. It will do all you want and more. It's a cut down version of Adobe Photoshop Pro that can be used for doing anything you can think of with a photo.

Even with Elements you can add an image to an existing photo by cutting a silhouette from one photo and inserting it into an existing photo (this is useful when you want to include someone in a group photo whowas unable to attend the photographic session).

I was given Magix as a present but never liked it. It was supposed to be a Video Editor but I could never get it to work. I prefer Photodex Producer which can also be used to edit still Photos.

Hi Al.

Roger has already mentioned another option, but that one can be quite expensive. I used it for a few years, but it became to expensive to keep it up to date. The Adobe one is good.

Magix 8 Photo Manager. Take a look at the link and see for yourself. They are easy to use, and still use them when I am doing special work, but as I said for immediate work, I use the Windows Photo Gallery.

MAGIX 8 PHOTO MANAGER

This is a Free Download I think, for trial at least.


Yeiamas, Chris
