Are there any free software packages like Photoshop that can be used to edit and add effects to photos? I want to create a professional look to my photos.

    By definition free is not the same as professional... you get what you pay for – user9817 Oct 3 '14 at 14:50

    Product recommendations are off-topic here, and in any case "professional look" is much too broad to have a useful answer. – Philip Kendall Oct 3 '14 at 15:05

    Clara, you're right that free is not the same as professional, but "you get what you pay for" is a vast oversimplification, especially when it comes to software. – Please Read My Profile Oct 3 '14 at 15:28

Try Gimp - it's an open-source alternative to Photoshop (though not as powerful of course).

  • Gimp is like photoshop in the same way a Trabant is like a Mclaren, but then the price difference is kinda similar I suppose. – James Snell Oct 3 '14 at 19:07

Gimp is very good and you can also try Paint.NET. It has a very "Photoshopy" feel to it and it is open source.
