Re: Free Photo Editors and Free Painting Software

You probably already know this Craig, but it looks like the makers of Virtual Photographer created a new program called Virtual Studio that can use PS filters (but not all; still it can use Impressionist which is cool). Looks like your idea of a program that just runs PS filters is making some traction. Also, Irfanview also can run many PS filters. No layers with either though.

you need freeware+8bf filters+layers+painting tools Then Photobie is the right answer meeting all your requirement+ you can even do animation

Re: Free Photo Editors and Free Painting Software

I know very little of it, but Griatch is a fantastic artist at GIMPTalk that uses it quite often. Below's a more current link of his post. Might want to contact him (think he's on Deviant) if you have more questions Maya.

Re: Free Photo Editors and Free Painting Software

Has anyone tried Pixlr Editor? It can be found at http://www.pixlr.com/. I've only played around with it, but have been impressed with it so far. I haven't worked with it enough to figure out if there is a "downside" to using it.

Re: Free Photo Editors and Free Painting Software

Not to address this editor specifically (though it does seem really cool!), but I personally am a little leery about developing a reliance on "cloud" apps (whether online image editors or Google apps, etc.). I suppose they have their place, they are often quite decent and the price is right, but business models and terms of use can change suddenly and then you're stuck with a gap between you and your data/tools. Not to mention, you may not always be online or near a signal when you need to do such work.

Then there are security issues when your personal data (documents and images) is being transmitted back and forth from and being stored on a distant server where who knows what is being done with it.

Not that I'm a Luddite by any means, but I like my creativity and productivity software installed on my hard drive and backed up on DVDs that are within reach... Just like my images! If I desired remote storage I would use my own server.
