Hello Group!

Over the past couple of meetings we touched on the subject of photo 
software a couple of times and I thought a little list with some 
software could prove helpful. The most popular (and versatile) is Adobe 
Photoshop (Lightroom), but there are other options in case you'd like to 
test the waters without parting with any cash.

The list follows below.

Best regards,


Google Picassa - http://picasa.google.co.uk/ (Windows)
Picassa is a great photo library/organiser. It scans your computer and 
shows all your images in an easy navigable way. One nifty feature is the 
face-recognition that automatically learns to recognise people. It 
supports the RAW format of most major brand cameras.

Paint.net - http://www.getpaint.net/ (Windows)
An image editing program that has a lot of functionality. It supports 
layers and has a lot of tools to enhance your images (red-eye removal, 
sharpening, blurs, noise removal, etc).

Darktable - http://www.darktable.org/ (Linux, MacOS X)
According to the website, a photography workflow application and RAW 
developer. A virtual lighttable and darkroom for photographers. It 
manages your digital negatives in a database, lets you view them through 
a zoom-able lighttable and enables you to develop raw images and enhance 
them. It supports the RAW format of most major brand cameras.

GNU Image Manipulation Program - http://www.gimp.org/ (Windows, Linux, 
MacOS X)
This program can be used for various image editing tasks such as 
resizing, editing, and cropping photos, photo montages combining 
multiple images, and converting between different image formats.

Hugin Panorama photo stitcher - http://hugin.sourceforge.net/ (Windows, 
Linux, MacOS X)
A tool that tries to make stitching multiple images into one panoramic 
image as simple as possible.

Pixlr - http://pixlr.com/editor/ (Windows, Linux, MacOS X)
A simple photo editor that works directly in your web browser window, 
so you don't even need to install any software...
