PhotoFiltre - image tweaking at it's finest

Website - Download - Freeware

Notes from Clif

The other day, I posted a request in the FreewareRevolution's forum. I asked all the members of the forum to post a mini-review of their favorite freeware program. Here's what Scott, the chairman of the FR has to say.

 

 

Review by Scott

Often times many of us can best express ourselves digitally by doing a bit of 'pixel pushing' (image editing/creation), and though there are a plethora of great graphics editing apps available. It can be useful for those who are frugal to discover free alternatives. Some in this category may find either applications that may be limited in their functionalities, or interfaces that may just not make them 'usable' to users of all levels.

 

Or worst of all - that they are 'free' to download but *gasp* are not actually 'free' to keep and use.

 

Originally I was alerted to PhotoFiltre by Xtort.net who told me about a program that really does suit the needs of both the graphics artist of all levels, as well as for those who wish to leave their wallet unopened - PhotoFiltre.

 

Whether creating an image from 'scratch' or importing from a source

(scanner, camera, etc.)

 

PhotoFiltre can do it via many filters and tools. Very nice interface and usage is a breeze.

 

I use this in all my graphics work, and though I am no artiste, I find it to be great. If I could have a wish-list for it, I'd just ask for some more filters:) And as from the 'you learn something new every day department" Jess from SiTE 4 Sore Eyes Freeware pointed out to me of how you can adjust compression for graphics via PhotoFiltre, so you really can learn something new every day - even things that are staring you right in the face.

PhotoFiltre is a complete image retouching program. It allows you to do simple or advanced adjustments to an image and apply a vast range of filters on it. It is simple and intuitive to use, and has an easy learning curve. The toolbar, giving you access to the standard filters with just a few clicks, gives PhotoFiltre a robust look. PhotoFiltre is free for a private, non commercial or educational use.
