Regardless of whether a picture taken with a digital camera is to be polished up or a logo is to be created for the website, image processing programs have a permanent place on the hard drive in the age of digital photography. Remove a disturbing element here, a bit of lightening there – quite a few pictures shine in a new shine after a short post-processing.
Adobe Photoshop is usually mentioned as the non-plus-ultra in the field of image processing. However, home users do not need all of the professional features that, by the way, do not make the software easier to use.
