Drop Photoshop for this!
Works great, nice interface and as useful as any of the bigger commercial photo manipulators. Takes a little getting used to, but easy to use. Best part is the price, it costs less to buy this outright than 2 months of Adobe monthly payments which you’d have to pay for life if you were to buy Photoshop. Highly recommend.
This is what I’ve been looking for. It has everything i need for fooling around with pictures. I highly recommend it.
Wish i bought it ages ago
When editing photos, beware that you do NOT get a chance to NOT save your work when you Quit the app. I killed a couple of photos when I was getting started with this program :(
