Fast, free photo editor PhotoDemon 8.0 released

PhotoDemon 8.0 is here – After 2.5 years of work, PhotoDemon 8.0 is available to download. New features include clone and pattern brush tools, support for Adobe Photoshop (PSD) images, massive performance improvements, new filters and effects, and much more – but NOTE – it is only available on Windows.

Overview from their website: – 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 full support for Adobe Photoshop (PSD) files.

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.

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 and 20+ language translations are currently available.
