  • What is your favorite offline photo editor? I’m thinking of trying out some but have limited time… I’ve thought of learning Gimp and / or Scribus but that are somewhat complex, and I don’t know that i need that much capability at this point.

    Thanks in advance for your helpful response.


    • Hi Trent,
      For almost all of my offline photo editing, I use either the Microsoft Office Picture Editor (which is free and included with Office, up to Office 2010) or Techsmith’s Snagit. Although Snagit isn’t free, it’s useful since it’s a really great screen capture tool as well as an editor. The rest of the time, I use an old version of Photoshop Elements which I got free as an bundle offering with another software package I got.
      Hope that helps!
      Cheers and thanks,
