My cousin Dave is a total Photoshop nerd. He loves to edit family photos to make them funny or weird—stuff like adding cool captions or just messing around with effects and things like that.
I wanted to do the same but Photoshop is so freaking expensive. It was always that way but now Adobe wants you to pay a monthly subscription and I’m not going to pay that kind of money just to make some silly photos. So I started hunting around for some Photoshop alternatives and stumbled upon Photoscape, which is a Windows program that lets you do a lot of cool things with images.
It’s not really as powerful as Photoshop, but it lets you do a lot of things that Photoshop does and as far as I can tell, it’s completely free. I read up on some tips and tricks for Photoscape and got the program going. Here are some of the first images that I edited with the program. What do you think? I don’t think Cousin Dave has to worry about the competition just yet, but I’m getting there!
OK, that’s not really one of my own funny family photos, but it’s so bad it’s good!
