Might be interesting to make a list of some useful Image Editors for Windows. Include the following info if you can: 1) Name: 2) Website: 3) Price: (obtained from http://pricegrabber.com/ and elsewhere) 4) What it can be used for or how powerful is it. Photoshop http://www.adobe.com/products/photoshop/ $510 (commercial) / $280 (academic) The standard by which so many image editors are judged. GIMP http://www2.arnes.si/~sopjsimo/gimp/ $0.00 Replicates quite a number of features that Photoshop has including layers, but still not as good. The interface takes a little getting used to. PhotoImpact http://www.ulead.com/ $80.00 A useful image editor for some basic and semi-advanced editing. Features are different than Photoshop. No layers; not a good program for advanced picture touch ups compared to Photoshop, but still useful as a day to day image editor. LViewPro http://www.lview.com/ $37.00 Don't know how to descibe it. The newer version has layers support. I've used the older versions to gain more control over editing individual pixels. Photoshop, GIMP, etc... are not as easy when it comes to precise pixel editing. Unfortunately, I do not know how good the new version of LviewPro is in this area. Satori PhotoXL http://www.satoripaint.com/DownloadSoftware.htm $0.00 Made by a commercial company. Useful for drawing images from scratch. Includes numerous custom brushes. 20/20 http://www.hotfreeware.com/2020/2020.htm $0.00 (adware - ads are safe) A basic image editor with a number of useful features for doing some image editing. Has an odd interface. Other products I can say that I'm familiar with or know, but have not used enough or at all to judge how useful and powerful they are: Macromedia Fireworks http://www.macromedia.com/software/fireworks/ $260 (commercial) / $100 (academic) Targeted for making internet graphics. E-Picture Pro http://www.beatware.com $150 A little known, but quite powerful and useful image editor for internet graphics. Paint Shot Pro http://www.jasc.com/ $83.00 Contains a large number of powerful features including layers support. P.S. I may update this list as people add to it.
