A Free Powerful Lightweight Image Editor That Is Portable

November 19, 2012

Toolwiz Pretty PhotoTo find a good FREE image editor is one thing, but to find one that will run from the stick (your flash drive) is another. One of my favorite all-round system maintenance utilities is Toolwiz Care. While visiting their site, I happened to notice that they also have a product called Toolwiz Pretty Photo.

What makes Toolwiz Pretty Photo unique from any of the other image editors I have experienced is two things. One it appears it does not rely on the NET framework to run and two it is available as a portable app. Granted, the portable version is a 75 to 76 MB download; however, I found it to be worth it. This program is loaded to the gills, which is no surprise from Toolwiz!

Toolwiz Pretty Photo

ToolWiz Pretty Photo is a free powerful lightweight image editor.  With just few clicks on this free tool, you can edit photos, create photo collage, and make them look the way you want them to be, and much prettier.  Yes, it is that simple.  ToolWiz Pretty Photo does not only come with 80+ professional image (art) filters and thousands of objects, but also supports frequently used functions, such as Resize, Flip, Crop, Rotate, Layers, Shadow, Frame and so on. Recently, it also made photo collage easier. With 97 collage patterns for your selection and DIY pattern designer, photo collage is never this simple before!
