PhotoDemon is a free, portable, open-source photo editor for Microsoft Windows.


Its design is guided by three principles:

Portability Portability

PhotoDemon does not require installation, administrator rights, or Internet access. Its tiny footprint allows it to run directly from USB devices.

Power Power

The current build provides more than 200 professional-grade tools, including digital darkroom essentials like shadow/highlight recovery, multi-channel curves, content-aware resizing, and HDR.

Usability Usability

An elegant interface built by designers - not engineers - gets out of the way and lets you work. Usability testing drives our design decisions.

Other cool stuff

PhotoDemon comes with a built-in macro recorder and batch processor. Its UI is fully themable, with built-in light, dark, and monochrome themes. All tools support real-time previews, custom presets, keyboard nav, and unlimited Undo/Redo.

All Windows versions (XP through Windows 10) are fully supported.
