Which? tests all the main photo-editing software brands - from free software to expensive packages - to see which ones come out top for ease of use and flexibility.
- For each software package we test, two beginners to photo-editing and two experts run through 10 common editing procedures so you can be sure that your package allows you to swiftly and comfortably crop your photos, tackle red-eye, fix colours and brightness and more, no matter what your skill level.
- To see how each software package meets the growing demands of a more skilled user, the beginners and experts also examine the versatility and power of more advanced features and tools
