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.

Tip within a tip: These free programs may inspire you to take up photography as a hobby. After editing, you don't want to lose image quality when printing your photos out. Our sponsor, Epson, offers a wide range of printers, including the brand new EcoTanks. These printers use tanks instead of cartridges so you won't waste a drop of ink when you print. Click here to learn more about Epson's high-quality printers today.
