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

 

  • 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.    

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/

       
         

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.

       

 

 

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