I just though it was time to start a thread on where people can locate FREE Image Editing Software.
In order to make it easy and user friendly I suggest posters provide a link along with a brief explanation as to it's capabilities.
I'll start it off.
******************************************************************


This little app called " Image Resizer " ( for XP users only ) is brought to you by Microsoft as part of their Power Toys for XP. When used it will give you three selections to resize. For this site it's best that posted pictures be no larger than 640 x 480 which allows the majority of users to view the picture without having to scroll sideways. It will automatically add a new file name and place the picture in the same folder that your selection was made from.

You can find the download it here on the right hand side of the page about 3/4 of the way down. http://www.microsoft.com/windowsxp/downloads/powertoys/xppowertoys.mspx
Once downloaded, locate the file and double click it to begin the install process. It only takes seconds. To use the app just locate the picture you want to resize from within the folder, right click it, select " Resize Pictures ", choose the preset size you want and it's done.

Gimp - http://www.gimp.org

GIMP is the GNU Image Manipulation Program. It is a freely distributed piece of software for such tasks as photo retouching, image composition and image authoring. It works on many operating systems, in many languages.
---------------

Neat Image - http://www.neatimage.com/index.html

Neat Image is a filter designed to reduce visible noise and grain in photographic images produced by digital cameras and scanners. Neat Image is indispensable in low-light (indoors, night, astro) and high-speed (sport, action) photography. It is a tool for both professional photographers and digital image processing enthusiasts
This is one of my favorites, the freeware version is slightly limited such as only being able to output high quality jpg's instead of lossless formats but for final processing of an image it's outstanding. I do a lot of video work and frequently use screenshots from the video in other applications and this is invaluable for cleaning up very noisy images from old VHS. Also works well for cleaning images that you have scaled up. Standalone or Photoshop plug-in.

Sample:

Exifer- http://www.friedemann-schmidt.com/software/exifer/

This is image utility program for viewing, editing or even stamping images with EXIF data. Has some other features as well.

PhotoFiltre http://www.photofiltre.com/

There is both a free and $$ version

PhotoFiltre is free for a private, non commercial or educational use (including non-profit organizations).
In this case, registration is not necessary. But commercial or professional use requires a registration.

I had a brain burp and we got it sorted out. How did you know what we did?

I found this free software over at Microsoft Research.
It's in the developmental stages, but looks promising.
I haven't tried it yet, but I think some of the camera buffs here might like to play around with it.

One is called Group Shot
http://research.microsoft.com/projects/GroupShot/

which linked to another app:
Interactive Digital Photomontage
http://grail.cs.washington.edu/projects/photomontage/
This was posted at the IDP site:
This is research software and code, and thus very messy and poorly-documented. It is likely to contain bugs. We do not promise that it works, and we do not promise to support it. Use at your own risk!
