Best Free & Cheap Photo Editing Software 2020

Like most software, you can get a perfectly good photo editor for free. Many will fix up your pictures with just a couple of clicks or taps, but if you want Photoshop-style control so you’re not adjusting the entire image, there are still options from old-school classics such as GIMP to a more recent (and easier to use) apps such as Adobe’s own Photoshop Elements which doesn’t require a subscription and is reasonably priced.

With that in mind, we’ve rounded up the best free photo editing software and apps to help get you started, as well as a couple paid options just in case you’re looking for a Photoshop alternative with more advanced features.
