You have taken a photo with your friends, however, everyone on the picture has red eyes. You don’t know what to do, so one of your friends recommends you to use a software in order to make the photo look great. The question is: which photo editing program is the best for this purpose?
In photo editing, there are two categories. This is obviously regarding the software version of photo editing. The two categories should go: paid software and free. This is a quite important fact since not everyone could afford a highly priced photo editor.
The Best Paid Software
For those who can afford paid software, we would like to recommend only one program since it is the clear winner here. Adobe’s Photoshop is a great software, if not the best, to use for image editing. It’s not easy to use, however since the program is extremely complicated. There are books and e-books, courses and webinars dedicated for the education of the software. So, if you are planning to purchase the product, just remember these. Photoshop is a pretty hard learn, if you don’t want to spend much time on a software, you only want to do a thing or two, don’t buy the product.
Photoshop is a software for master photo editors. Do you want to remove a scar from someone’s face? Or do you want to a remove a complete person from a picture? You can do it with this program since it has so many functions that you wouldn’t even realize that. The software has been designed greatly, however, Adobe could have made a thorough tutorial for Photoshop. It would be much easier to learn directly from the developers of the software than from a course that have been made by a “no-name” guy or gal.
If you learn most functions of Photoshop and you also know how to use them, you can earn then huge money. Of course, if you can sell yourself. There are plenty of freelance jobs on the internet that offer you high earnings for image editing with Photoshop. I think it’s a great investment to buy the software, learn the details and the functions and how to use them and then find some work where you have to use the program to do something for a client. Yes, it costs money and lots of time to do so, however, if you have no other ways to earn money, or you would like to do this as a second job, this is the best chance to do so.
The Best Free Software
I couldn’t choose from all the great photo editing programs that are one the internet and are free. So, let’s see two of this software first.
Our first software to show you is GIMP, which has been one of the most common programs in photo editing over the years. Where I have studied in the high school, we even had to do an exam just from this software. This software is great for editing images, pretty easy to use and learn. Oh, and I forgot the best: the program is completely free. You don’t even have to pay a buck to download it and use. The only thing you would like to pay for is learning the software since it is only moderately easy to learn. You still have to spend time to educate yourself to use GIMP.
The other software I would like to mention is the Paint. I bet everyone knows this program since it has been the part of Windows like 10-15 years. In elementary school, everyone was messing around with this program and this was the best for entertainment. The program needs no time to learn since it is so easy. However, Paint is a very basic software. You can’t use it for advanced photo editing.
