Edit all of the photos that you have online with Paint.NET.

This is an easy program to use that is similar to Photoshop. However, it has a few more details that you can add to your pictures. When you add your picture to the program, you will see it on a white background. This makes it easier to see the effects that you add to the picture before you make a final selection.

All of the tools that are needed to edit your pictures are on the left side of the screen. Simply mouse over the icons to see the name of the tool that is available. When you see the tool that you want to use, click on it to drag it to your picture. You can easily change the color of the feature that is added or change the shape.

One of the features with Paint.NET is that you can transform your picture into an oil painting or one that looks like an antique photograph instead of simply adding phrases and small icons to the image. You can have more than one picture up at a time, editing them together so that you can get more work done at once. After the pictures are edited, you can print them or save them to your computer so that they can be shared with friends and family.

The program is one of the easier ones to use online. It doesn't take long to install, and the editing tools are self-explanatory. You can transform pictures into an entirely new album just by clicking on a few tools to get a new look on each image.
