PhotoDemon is a free, portable, open-source photo editor for Microsoft Windows.
Its design is guided by three principles:
PhotoDemon does not require installation, administrator rights, or Internet access. Its tiny footprint allows it to run directly from USB devices.
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 full support for Adobe Photoshop (PSD) files.
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 navigation, and unlimited Undo/Redo.
All Windows versions (XP through Windows 11) are fully supported.
PhotoDemon is available in many languages. If your language is missing, please get in touch. I would love to support it!
