Capturing a great photo is like capturing lightning in a bottle. You don't get a second chance at it so you better get it right the first time.

At least that's the way it used to be. Thanks to digital photo editors, you can fix little mistakes and turn ho-hum pictures into fantastic photos.

The programs listed here range from user-friendly to advanced. They're all free, so you can find the right one for you. Here we go:

Paint.net was originally created as a free replacement for Microsoft's Paint. Like Paint, Paint.net is really easy to use, and it's extremely useful.

It lets you add text, paint, patterns, shapes and gradients to any photograph. It also includes tons of features that let you sharpen, blur or remove grain and noise. But the best part about Paint.net is that if you mess up, you can revert back to your original photo.

Note: Google is phasing out its photo-editing program Picasa. Now, you can edit all your photos on the website Google Photos.
