Working With Images

When you do begin working with digital camera images you will sometimes find that you want to manipulate them before you use them on the IWB.


  • The images might be too large
  • You might want to crop them
  • You might want to do some basic, (or more complicated), manipulation
  • You might want to add text


Here are some freely available options to help with this


Microsoft Picture Manager can be found in the Office suite under Microsoft Tools. This is a basic image editor that is also okay for doing batch resize and renaming.  

Irfanview is a quite useful tool for more than just manipulating images. It is a free download from http://www.irfanview.com/.

As well as enabling batch resizing etc you can also add text and shapes to images.


The Gimp is the free alternative to Photoshop and the like. It can appear quite tricky to use at first but if you persist then you can achieve some stunning image effects.

The Gimp can be downloaded from http://www.gimp.org/



As more and more applications move "to the cloud" then Online Options for image editing are becoming more fully featured.
