Default Good Screenshot/Photo editing program?
Hi all,
I've been wanting to build and upload houses to the download forums, however, my applications are turned down because the photos are too small, and when i enlarge them, they go blurry and pixelated.

Does anyone know of any free screenshot/editing programs? I'm not too fussed, as long as it's completely safe, free and produces good quality pictures.

Admin, please move this post if it doesn't belong in this forum. I didn't know where else to put it.

Thanks

First off, you can't take a small picture, enlarge it, and retain the same amount of sharpness. It WILL be blurry. You can take a large picture and make it smaller and keep most sharpness, but not the other way around.

GIMP (GNU Image Manipulation Program) is a free and popular alternative to Photoshop: https://www.gimp.org/downloads/.

If you're looking for just a simple screenshot annotation tool, try Greenshot: http://getgreenshot.org/downloads/

I also heard about Affinity Photo but did not install this program yet. But if you use LR, then you will like these Best presets http://fixthephoto.com/free-lightroom-presets
