PhotoDemon is another free photo editor for Microsoft Windows only. It is portable, open-source and does not require installation, administrator rights, or Internet access; And its tiny footprint allows it to run directly from ‘thumb’ drives.
It comes with a built-in macro recorder and batch processor and its user interface allows for light, dark, and monochrome themes. All tools support real-time previews, custom pre-sets, keyboard navigation, and unlimited Undo/Redo.
The current build provides more than 200 professional-grade tools, including digital darkroom essentials like shadow/highlight recovery, multi-channel curves, content-aware resizing, layers, blend modes and full support for Adobe Photoshop (PSD) files.
