Needed: Free Image Editing Software for Windows?
    #1820257 - 08/16/03 05:36 PM (18 years, 2 months ago)

A friend of mine, whom I'm doing some work for, needs something to re-scale and sharpen his images for uploading to the web. I'm a Mac-guy, and I don't know Windows for shit, and I always use Photoshop anyway, so I need some help here...

There is much bullshit freeware/shareware out there, that doesn't work for shit, and my friend needs a good one. Thanks! :smile:

You can download just about any program you want nowadays.

Yeah, but he doesn't have all the Kaaza stuff, and neither do I, and we are both way off the grid on old twisted copper pair (POTS) telephone lines, so no we can't... :smirk:

I don't really know, and I don't think he does either. He needs something like Photoshop which will use a decent algorithm like bicubic interpolation, and also have some nice color correction controls and unsharp mask style filters.

I was over at his place the other day, and I searched for some freeware, and D/Led some stuff for him, but it was all crap, and the stuff that came with his digi-cam was crap too.

I was just hoping that there was something decent out there in the Free-Ninety-Nine price range for Windows. I know there is for Mac and Linux.

When he turns on his computer it should say what version of windows he has as its starting up..

95, NT, 98, ME, 2000, XP

most likely one of those.

Anyway; you've got a PM

Thanks, I looked at GIMP for Windows, and it looks like a LINUX install only for Windows. I can handle Linux installs, but I only see a Windows computer once in a blue moon, and my friend is not very computer literate.

Do you use the Windows verions, and what's the install like? I'm trying to help him out, but I don't want to spend all day at his house trying to install this thing... :wink:

I used the Windows version. I don't remember what the install is like, as that sort of thing doesn't usually stand out in my memory. It was pretty easy, tho.

Gimp is an excellent free replacement for photoshop...although I found the windows version to be quite buggy. Lots of crashes. You can always download a trial version of paint shop pro, then when your trial period is up, uninstall the program, make sure all the reg entries are gone, and then reinstall.

I second the reccomendation for irfanview.

I've had it like since it came out, and he keeps adding more crap to it. it plays videos now, works your webcam, all kinds of neat stuff in one small program. Not to mention awesome and really easy to use image editing tools for size, color etc. Also supports pretty much all the file types you'd ever need. Download, be happy
