Composites:

The first one that comes to mind is web sites. Any designer will tell you content is important and a photograph is worth a thousand words… In general we are talking about “Desktop Publishing” and the many uses it has beyond the web site…
If you don’t want to break the bank with PS (great program) there are alternatives.
The Best Free Photo Editing Software…

  1. GIMP Just shy of 20 years old, GIMP (aka the GNU Image Manipulation Program), gets regular updates and is widely known as a great and fairly powerful free photo editor.
  2. Paint.NET If you’re looking for something a little more basic than GIMP, Paint.NET is a great alternative. You’ve got plenty of options for resizing and rotating photos, a good range of selection and paint tools, and there’s some great special effects too.
  3. A simple but effective editing program, PhoXo is a useful editor which has some great fun applications as well as more serious uses. You can customize images with cartoons and the likes, while the ability to add a custom watermark to a group of images can be useful for edits in a hurry. There’s also drawing and paint tools along with image transformations, effects and more.
  4. Funny Photo Maker If it’s effects you’re after, Funny Photo Maker is a great option. While you won’t have advanced tools such as layer support or smart selection tools, you can turn someone’s face into a movie poster or bank note, transform still images into animations or add weather effects. Interesting frames, collages and other options are also available.
  5. Photo Pos Pro Probably one of the more dated looking options on the market, don’t dismiss Photo Pos Pro immediately. If you spend some time experimenting with what it has to offer you’ll find plenty of options including paint tools, color corrections and selection tools.

These download locations where found on Digital Camera World. The article, “Best free photo editing software: download these image editors today!” was written by Jeff Meyer back in August 7, 2014. He has highlighted (11) eleven programs. I have only posted (5) five of them.
