Arguably the best photo manager, Adobe Lightroom has enough tools, even for professionals, to avoid having to open up a separate image editor, including some of Photoshop’s healing and manipulation tools.

The best of the rest …

PaintShop Pro

£48 – Ferestre

PaintShop Pro
PaintShop ProPhotoshop’s long-term rival. Fotografie: Corel

Photoshop’s long-standing rival. PaintShop Pro is cheaper than its juggernaut of a rival but similarly specified. It lacks some of Photoshop’s most advanced features, and is bettered by some of its newer often-free competitors, but is still a capable editor.

Serif PhotoPlus X7

£ 79.99 – Ferestre

Serif PhotoPlus
Serif PhotoPlus Fotografie: Serif

PhotoPlus is a solid all-round image editor for Windows from the company that created Affinity Photo for OS X. It has a decent set of tools, including lens correction tools and other favourites of photographers. The only downside is that many of the advanced tools require more manual manipulation than some other programs and therefore it isn’t as beginner friendly.

Photoshop Elements

£79.10 – Ferestre, OS X

Photoshop Elements

Photoshop’s cut-down cousin Elements has improved dramatically over the last couple of years from a tool to avoid to a photo editor for everyone else. It has many of the same tools as its bigger brother, save for the advanced Content Aware Fill and a few other professional tools. Solid for most tasks, although free or cheaper tools with similar features are available.

Acorn 4

£ 22.99 – OS X

Another excellent image editor for OS X, Acorn is billed as the “image editor for humans”. It’s packed with advanced tools and filters but has a stripped back, simplified user interface that is designed to be familiar to Photoshop users and easy to pick up for notices.

Affinity Photo

Gratuit – OS X (in beta)

Affinity Photo
Affinity Photo Fotografie: Serif

Affinity Photo attempts to be Photoshop on a budget, but not dumbed down. Este rapid, packed with advanced tools and is aimed at professionals. Part of that tool set is end-to-end CMYK 16-bit per channel editing, RAW processing and a Photoshop Content Aware Fill-like tool called Inpainting.

Gimp

Gratuit – Ferestre, OS X and Linux

Despite the unfortunate name – GNU Image Manipulation Program – Gimp is one of the most capable free open-source photo editors available for Windows, OS X and Linux. It has some very powerful tools, but isn’t as user friendly as some others.

Aperture

£59.99 – OS X

Aperture
Apple’s professional photo management and manipulation software, but Aperture will be replaced by Apple Photos in the near future. Fotografie: Măr

Apple’s long-standing photo organiser and editor, Aperture is one of the most efficient ways of tweaking groups of photos, and making and reviewing small adjustments. The magnifying loop tool is particularly effective. It’s simpler to use than many of its competitors and can be used in conjunction with iPhoto.

Apple Photos

Gratuit – OS X

Apple Photos
Photos is the successor to Aperture and iPhoto, due for release in the spring. Fotografie: Măr

Photos is Apple’s replacement for both iPhoto and Aperture, which will be available in the spring. A preview was made available of the app, which is fast, with enough tools to make photo management and tweaks easy.

Picasa

Gratuit – Ferestre, OS X

Picasa is Google’s photo manager and editor. It plugs into Google+, but is a solid simple organiser and can be accessed through the app or on the web. It has enough tools to quickly tune photos, with a few fancy filters thrown in.

ACDSee Pro 8

$99.99 – Ferestre

ACDSee Pro 8
ACDSee Pro 8 Fotografie: ACDSee

ACDSee is an Adobe Lightroom analogue with photo management at its heart. It is fast and effective, but has limited metadata sorting and no automatic correction based on lens profiles. It has enough editing tools to improve the odd photo, but some of it can be a clumsy mix of destructive and non-destructive editing.

The cheaper ACDSee 18 lacks some of the more advanced features but could be a good option for photo management.

Preview

Gratuit – OS X

Preview
Behind the simple image viewer, Preview offers some useful image editing tools.

Apple’s built-in image and document viewer for OS X is a bit of a dark horse. Underneath its simple viewing exterior hides a fast and effective image editor that’s perfectly capable of cropping, resizing, reformatting and simple touchups. It is particularly good at editing a bunch of images at once.

Microsoft Paint

Gratuit – Ferestre

Microsoft Paint

Microsoft’s original image editor. It’s changed a bit in recent years and is still a solid, basic image editor. It’s worth a go for nostalgia’s sake at the very least, or for simple cropping and resizing jobs that really don’t require something as powerful as Photoshop.

Sumo paint

Gratuit – web

A Photoshop facsimile in the browser, the free Sumo Paint is an excellent quick photo editor. Many of the advanced tools are only available in a $19 pro version, but for straightforward touching up of images, resizing and similar the free editor does the job.

PicMonkey

Gratuit – web

Fast and effective for small edits without any extra software. Fotografie: Screengrab

PicMonkey is free, browser-based image editor with a solid feature set for simple photo touchups, adding text to images and adding frames. Images can be taken from a computer or various cloud services, including Dropbox and Flickr. A paid-for upgrade removes the ads and gives access to more fonts and effects.

FotoFlexer

Gratuit – web

FotoFlexer
FotoFlexer

Billed as “the world’s most advanced online image editor” it has numerous features for most types of editing. Image manipulation tools are just a simple click and drag-a-slider away, but most tools have little in the way of guidance so beginners might struggle. Those looking for more powerful fill features will need to look elsewhere.

Ribbet

Gratuit – web

Ribbet
Ribbet, as in the frog.

Ribbet, despite it’s odd name and frog logo, is a quick and easy-to-use online image editor that does most of the editing for you, making it excellent for beginners or simple jobs. A few advanced tools are available, but better options are out there.

Fotor

Gratuit – Ferestre, OS X, iPhone, Android and web

Fotor is a free image editor that’s available on just about any platform either in app or web app from. It has a good selection of tools, each with an easy-to-use sliding scale of effect. Batch editing is a bonus, as are the filter tools.

BeFunky
BeFunky is a slick, browser-based photo editor.

A quick and easy-to-use image editor that apes Instagram on the iPhone and Android, but with a few more tools. The web app is similarly simple, and solid for quickly customising photos before sharing them.

Snapseed

Gratuit – Android, iOS

Snapseed is Google’s mobile image editor that’s been sidelined after it was acquired to be integrated into Google+. But the app still works and its tools, filters and easy-to-use touch controls are still some of the best around.

Photoshop Touch

£3.99 to £7.99 – Android, iOS

Photoshop Touch

Photoshop Touch is Adobe’s touchscreen focused mobile variant, but it isn’t nearly as powerful or feature rich as its namesake. It has a selection of photo filters and some decent touchup tools, but it’s biggest selling point is integration with Adobe’s Creative Cloud, which is useful for desktop Photoshop users.

Adobe’s lighter Photoshop Express is also available for free with very basic tools.
