Now you can often hear me singing the praises of Paint.net, because it is an awesome free alternative to some of the most expensive photo and graphic editors out there. Another good one you should try is Photobie. It is a free download for photo editing, scrapbooking, animation, screen capturing and more.
Here is a screen shot of the program’s interface:
Here is a little more about the program from the developers:
Photobie is built upon .NET framework 2. It contains all general photo editing and painting features. It is a perfect screen capture tool for you to do screen capture and editing in one place. It is also a perfect digital scrapbooking tool that allows you to apply embellishment, masking and templating easily and efficiently. And it is a perfect animation tool that allows you to create GIF animation efficiently. It supports many embedded filters as well as Photoshop free 8bf filters. It supports user customized brushes, textures, masks and regions.
Now that might look like a lot of bells and whistles to play with. Thankfully, they have a lot of tutorials too. Here a few of my favorite Photobie tutorials I have found thus far out there (I’m sure I’ll find many more later!).
