I used to use Picasa which was very easy to edit photos. But that has disappeared. I have no idea what to do now. I am looking for a free way to edit photos uploaded from my camera. Someone suggested Google but don't know how to do it. Is anyone tech savvy? I'm definitely not.

Photoshop express brings many poor photos to life.

Photoshop is not free, it is quite pricey, GIMP is free and am sure there are other free photo editing software about

I've heard ot GIMP. How do i get it? Really no idea how to do anything new.

Photoshop “EXPRESS” is free and is ideal for enhancing snaps. Adjusting exposure, balance, framing, Colour and all sorts of decorative effects. Simple and quick to use.

lmm6 Sorry I can not remember how Google Photo was installed on my mobile.sad

I like the Google photo app and find it very easy to use.
(Looks like a windmill)

It does all the usual, but can also turn photos into animation or stills into movies with music.

Can put photos into albums.

Also there is an option to make collages from various photos.

Free cloud storage.

A remember this day photo which pops up my mobile a year later

I can only suggest that you check your app store or look for the windmill symbol on Google.

lmm6, are you looking for a free program or you don't mind paying a bit of money? I used to use GIMP and still have it on my PC, but I think that best stuff has its price smile so now my fave photo editor is Photoworks . It's very easy to use.

Help please! I'm having trouble again trying to upload a magazine page onto this forum. I succeeded eventually not long ago, thanks to your help, even uploading photos. Now it doesn't work. sad I've scanned the page into my desktop PC; it turned up as a PDF in documents folder. "Browse" finds it, but then tells me it not in a suitable format so I changed it to dot doc, but still no go! I've high-lighted, single clicked, double clicked, left and right, but this user-unfriendly thread has no instructions. What am I not doing?
Any ideas would be welcome. Thank you.

Sorry! This is the best I can achieve so far! GNHQ suggested changing file to JPEG which seems to have done the trick, but I've yet to learn how to enlarge along the way so that the caption would be more legible. sad
Anyway , here it is!

You can try PicsArt android application, it can be edited easier than other photo editor apps. And if you need the pro version for free, then you can modify this app by using the lucky patcher application.

Still, if you have any question then let me know...

I've tried the PicArt app (Google) recently and it's a very easy to use app, does the job well but I'm not sure if it's worth the annual fee

I'm pretty sure there is no better editing app than Photoshop, especially for PC. At first, it looks very difficult, but if you watch several video-lessons, you understand how it works.
For mobile phones, the choice is huge. VSCO, Snapseed, PicArt and so on. They're all great at photocorrection. If I need more than that, I use retouchme . I prefer it for being multifunctional.
