This multimedia app stands out from its competition with its plethora of features and multiple effects.

For a free photography app, PhotoDemon boasts an impressive selection of tools. The current build holds more than 200 professional-grade tools. The range of functions that this app comprises is diverse enough to meet your requirements as far as basic editing options are concerned. With the app, you can crop, rotate, and flip images. Of course, you can also make adjustments to your photo’s composition, such as brightness, contrast levels, and white balance. More than that, the app also includes digital darkroom essentials, such as multi-channel curves, shadow/highlight recovery, and content-aware resizing. It even has full support for Adobe Photoshop files. 

The assortment of filters is also just as rich, with options such as blur and distort, embossing and engraving, noise adjustments, and more. It even has artistic filters that you can use. If the provided collection is not enough for you, the app can assist you in creating your custom filters

PhotoDemon has an elegant UI that is fully themeable, with built-in dark, light, and monochrome themes. More, it has a built-in macro recorder and batch processor, allowing you to edit, rename, or convert multiple photos at once. All the tools in the app support real-time previews, keyboard navigation,  custom presets, as well as unlimited Undo and Redo.
