Free Editing Software

I do not want to buy a photo editing software like Adobe Photoshop. Is there a photo editing software available for free and which gives good results too?

It may surprise you to know that Photoshop CC and Lightroom CC are available in India for a monthly subscription price of Rs. 1420. There are also a few free photo editors such as GIMP that offer layers, and open up formats like RAW and PSD too.
Another basic photo editing software is Picasa, ideal for novice users as the functions are a little more simplistic. It also opens up a range of formats including RAW, JPEG and PSD.
For cellphones, there are apps like Snapseed which give you a good amount of control over your images. VSCO Cam is another reliable option with good filters and editing functions.Tags: Editing, Free photo editing software, good results, Is there a photo editing software available for free and which gives good results too?, Q & A, software
