Photo editing application

PhotoDemon is a photo editing software that's fully free to download and use on your project.



PhotoDemon is an entirely free, open-source application. This ensures that the software is safe as either you or community members can verify the application's code. You can add any additions of your choice and modify the application with your own coding skills. You can download any previous versions or adapted ones with ease.

Simple interface

The photo editor's interface is simplistic and extremely easy to navigate. While working on a picture, you can access a massive selection of tools from the side-bar.

Additionally, you can adjust a tool's settings on the opposite side of the screen, including colour selection and opacity. However, the app's layout and design are less impressive than Krita's, another free editing and drawing software.


There are over 200 tools available, all of which are professional-grade. The various options include darkroom essentials such as highlight recovery, content-aware resizing, and multi-channel curves.

The application works exceptionally well with Adobe Photoshop files, a far more expensive and professional alternative to PhotoDemon. The available tool quality is higher than other free options such as Gimp.

Assign macros

One of the most useful photo editing abilities, especially when you have over 200 tools available, is assigning a macro. This allows you to quickly use any feature or complete a repetitive task with minimal effort. There are many tutorials and reviews available that explain the application.


You can adjust your interface to another theme, change the light or dark setting, or select a monochromatic colour-scheme. All the tools support custom keybindings as well as the option to create macros for quick editing. The default interface layout is easy to use and provides all the commonly used tools on your screen's side, with detailed adjustments available on the opposite side. There are more than 200 tools and features available for this open-source photo editor.
