PhotoDemon is a free photo editor.

Its design is based on three principles:



PhotoDemon does not require installation, admin rights, Internet access or external dependencies. Its tiny footprint (7.6 mb) makes it ideal for USB devices.



The current build provides more than 100 pro-grade tools, many of which are faster and higher-quality than other free photo editors.



An interface built by designers – not engineers – gets out of the way and lets you work. Unlike other photo editors, usability testing drives design decisions.

Other key features include macro recording, batch processing, and save/load presets for all tools.

English, Dutch, French, German, Italian, Malay, Portuguese, Spanish, and Swedish translations are currently available.

All Windows versions from Windows XP to Windows 10 are fully supported.
