Adobe Photoshop is the gold standard for image editing. But it can have a large learning curve and is overkill for most of the editing you probably want to do. And it’s expensive.
Photoscape is free, easy to use and chock full of cool features like screen capture and animated GIF creation.
I use it to quickly combine multiple pics into one and to create memes.
I’ve used it so much over the last few years that my Photoshop icon is gathering virtual dust on my desktop.
