PhotoScape Review

PhotoScape is an image editor packed with features for free that is designed for photographers of all skill levels. As an alternative to Photoshop, PhotoScape enables photographers to perform various tasks and offers additional functions like stitching together photos into panoramas or collages, working with animated GIFs and renaming images bulkily.

PhotoScape features an unusual user interface; its home screen shows a list of main tools as well as links to tutorials and special pages, with editing tools located under tabs at the top of its interface. Getting used to this arrangement may take some time; additionally, most tools on its home page become redundant since most can be reached via tabs instead.

With the Edit tool you can crop, rotate, adjust brightness and contrast levels, add filters and effects, sharpen and blur an image, create black-and-white or sepia toned images, remove red eyes from children photos and more! Use our RAW converter to turn CR2, CRW, NEF or NRW files from DSLR cameras into JPG format for easier processing, save three colours to Picked Color History as Picked History entries or process multiple images simultaneously via our batch converter feature.

PhotoScape may not offer you a comprehensive editing experience, but if you just want the basics quickly and easily then this program could be ideal. Plus it features an intuitive photo viewer with all of the standard thumbnail viewing options as well as folders and preview windows plus functions for resizing, rotating and viewing EXIF data!

PhotoScape offers many basic functions, as well as an advanced text function which can be useful for adding captions, copyright information and labels directly onto images or simply labelling them. What makes PhotoScape stand out is its font tool; unlike many online editors it uses your system fonts instead of charging a fee for access.

There’s also an impressive set of tools for creating and editing panoramas, cutting-out objects from photos or creating masks to focus on only certain colors in a photo, batch-adding an effect to all selected photos at once, as well as offering frames to choose from for your images.

There’s much to discover with this free program and it has enough power to rival Adobe Lightroom. Although not quite as user friendly, if you don’t wish to spend money on more costly products then this one should certainly be checked out.
