Download of the day: PhotoScape
Photoscape is one of the finest free photos editors around. Making your snaps look their best before posting them on social media or even, god forbid, printing them out to hang on the wall is incredibly easy thanks to its excellent set of tools presented in a clear, fuss-free interface.
It all adds up to make PhotoScape an image editor that's robust enough for advanced users, and easy enough to understand for beginners.
Why you need it
PhotoScape presents everything in an easy-to-manage circle of options that covers all the main features.
The Editing tab allows you to change various aspects of the image such as the brightness and size, add effects to change the way it looks, crop it, and place other objects such as text on top.
The Page tab lets you make a collage from a group of images using a preset template. Combine offers a similar service, enabling combine lots of photos onto one page and then change the style of the borders and margins.
Other features include a tool for creating animated GIFs, which is great fun, and a built-in printing suite also allows you to create sheets of photos to minimize paper wastage. There's also screen capture, a RAW-to-JPG converter, image splitter, batch editor, renaming tool and a colour picker.
