User-friendly and high-quality photo editor
PhotoPad is a free program for editing digital images and photographs. It allows you to crop, rotate, and resize pictures and remove the "red-eye" effect and other defects from photos. Also, it can adjust color, hue, saturation, brightness, and contrast, apply various products, such as sepia, vignetting, blur, etc., add text, create collages or panoramas, and much more.
There is also a preview function and support for many popular graphic formats. The program is multiplatform and has a version for Windows. We will tell you about it.
The program's interface is user-friendly, and even newbies who have never worked with image editors can understand it easily. For example, you can use the Zoom control in the lower right corner of the editor window to zoom in on the image. And when you click any of the icon buttons on the toolbar on the right side of the screen (Image Effects panel), a simple window for adjusting the selected parameter appears. Completion of the adjustment is confirmed by clicking Apply or Cancel. The developers have designed the interface and functionality as clearly as possible for ordinary users.
