      I like to draw, paint and photograph and I’ve become very interested in the art of mixed media and using an editing software to help combine all these artistic elements into one finished product. I didn’t want to invest in an expensive program until I’d had a chance to experiment with a few other things first, because you just never know when a cheaper or even a FREE program is going to be worth the time. One of my friends on a jewelry forum that I’m a member of had mentioned using Photoscape because it was free (though you could pay for an upgraded version) and it was great for editing photos of jewelry if you were a business person selling your wares online, such as myself. So I downloaded the program immediately.

      It’s a smaller sized program, easy and quick to download, with very little fuss at all. I’m not very computer-inclined to say the least, and when


      I first opened the program, I thought perhaps it was just a little too much software for me, even as a free software. I was so used to using the editing software that came with my digital camera, where the options and features were limited to changing a photo from color to black and white, cropping, and changing image size, that I didn’t exactly know where to start with this program.

      Playing with it every day, however, for an hour or so at a time, I quickly learned the ropes. It’s pretty self explanatory as well. I never once had to try to look up tutorial steps online when trying to figure out how to do something, and it has so many easy click-and-use features, that it doesn’t take a genius to figure it out. Of course it comes with the basics as well like the sepia and black and white options for photographs, and altering the size and ...


      • dimensions. You can crop an image based on certain specs such as an 8 x 10 photo if you’re interested in printing it professionally, and that’s a quality I really love about this software. You can even crop circular sections, which means you can create a nice border around a circular portion of your photo or art, using any color you can think of.

        You can layer your photos too. I would choose a photo I took of say a pile of orange leaves, then choose a drawing I’ve done of, say, a fairy in a garden. I would open up the leaves photograph, then there’s an option to overlay a picture on top, so you just click that, search through your photos of what you want the second layer to be, and then click it and then you can chose the opacity of the top photo so you can see the drawing underneath. It creates a really cool effect

        and I’ve been able to come up with some fantastic finished pieces this way. You can also change or altar the white balance on anything, even artwork, change a photograph of a butterfly’s wings from orange to blue, or a flower from red to orange. The options are really unlimited. You can even spot color a photograph if you have the patience to use their black and white features. I had a picture of a butterfly on a bush, and wanted only the butterfly to be in color, so I made everything around the butterfly black and white by using one of their features, and this was all through trial and error that I learned to do this. It’s not quite as refined as a program that you’ll pay for, but for being free you just can’t beat the options it provides. Several people I have recommended this software to has absolutely loved it, as do I. It suits my artistic needs perfectly.
