Photo editing features
PhotoPad offers both simple and advanced editing tools. You can crop, rotate, straighten, flip and resize your images. You can change the color levels, light, contrast and saturation for the images. Advanced selection tools such as magic-wand and magnet selection are available. There is a separate “Color” tab that packs all the color related tools like auto-color, color curves, color balance, image temperature and so on.
Hundreds of effects
PhotoPad has all the usual effects that you might expect from an image editing software. Effects like blur, sharpen, pixelate, vignette, local focus, lens distortion, warm and many more are included. Under the “More Effects”, some of very impressive effects like noise reduction, focus fixing, red eye and more are available.
