A Swiss army knife

Photoscape is a photo editor that contains a myriad of features to serve miscellaneous picture editing tasks. Its features replace several other tools in a single software.

More than meets the eye

While the meat of the app is photo editing, its menu hides a plethora of features, including conversion, GIF creation, splitting a merging of photos, to name a few.

At first glance, Photoscape seems like a simple photo editing tool covering the primary functions the customers are used to in such free software. While the meat of the app is photo editing, its menu hides a plethora of features, including conversion, GIF creation, splitting or merging of photos, to name a few.

Photoscape is primarily a photo editing tool, though. The interface is straightforward, with the options clearly labeled and put together, enabling users to play with their images. You choose between nine toolbar options, which cover most editing needs.

The tools include essential editing functions such as adding filters, removing red eyes, retouching with brushes, and more. Besides, you can create landscapes and slide shows, fix white lights, and zoom. View photos stored in folders, search and select them by their color the list goes on.

This software is beginner-friendly, with a collection of features calling you to test them out. You can create high-quality results using the filters. Besides being excellent for amateur use, it sets the stage for more complicated editing tools, such as Photoshop.

Those working with many photos at the same time will enjoy the batch option. With this, you can apply the same filters, frames, sharpening, and other effects to your group of images, saving time and energy.

Where can you run this program?

Photoscape is compatible with Windows 10 and MacOS 10.12 or later versions of the two operating systems. You can also run it on Android and iOS.

Is there a better alternative?

No. GIMP is the closest free tool to this software but covers the same tools Photoscape does. What makes Photoscape stand out is that it provides more actions in a single application.

Our take

Photoscape packs quite a punch for a straightforward, free of charge tool. The software offers more than it shows when you first open it.

Should you download it?

Yes, unless you’re looking for intricate, detailed retouching. Photoscape is more than enough for most average photo editors.
