Why you need it

StudioLine Photo Basic is packed with powerful tools to make your pictures look amazing.

Images can be cropped and rotated, and you can edit several photos together in a batch.

Photo editing in StudioLine Photo Basic is non-destructive, so there's no risk of accidentally overwriting your original picture. The software keeps a log of all filters and other effects as you apply them, so you can undo or edit them at any time.

Once you're satisfied with the results, you can optimize your photos for viewing in a slideshow, on TV or in print, and export them in a suitable format. StudioLine Photo Basic includes a burning tool for saving snaps to CD or DVD, and you can save your custom settings as a preset for future use.

What sets StudioLine Photo Basic apart from other free photo editors is its raft of image-sharing options, which include web galleries, optimized email attachments, slideshows, print, calendars and greeting cards. It's the perfect way to get your photos off your SD cards and share them with the world.
