On the one hand it is a simple, but on the other hand a powerful graphical editor. And besides it is free. There is no advertising on the installation phase as well as in the interface. Its level of capacity can be estimated as the average - it is higher than in Paint and lower than in products such as the GIMP. User of Paint.NET is the one, who does not want to master complex products such as Photoshop or GIMP, but on the other hand do not mind to try something more than Paint. It contains sufficient effects to improve your pictures. There are red-eye reduction, blur, styling, accuracy improving, illumination, various types of distortion, noise reduction, etc.

GIMP is a free tool with open source software, allowing you to create and edit images. You can create your own images using the retouching tools, pencil drawing, cloning and gradients. Experienced users can create their own brushes and patterns for later use. In addition, as suggested by my collegues from www.essayonline.biz, GIMP gives users the ability to process images imported into the program. You can crop, add text, resize and create nested layers. There is even the possibility to animate your creations.
