    Alternative Ways to Open Photoscape

    photoscape-alternatives-splashscreen To get started, load your Photoscape program. Once it has loaded, you will see a splash screen in a circular form. These are your alternatives to Photoscape. In this circle, you will see all of the sections inside the Photoscape program. Let's take a look at each of these sections:

    Editor - This section of Photoscape is where you would go if you want to edit your images to do things such as crop your photo, apply effects, add text, add clipart, frame photos, and adjust your photo's colors.

    Batch Editor - The Batch Editor is the same as the above, except this is where you edit multiple photos at a time.

    Page - The Page section of Photoscape is where you can create a page of photos, also known as a photo collage.

    Combine - The Combine section is where you blend two or more photos together on a page. This can be side by side or a checkered pattern.

    Animated GIF - This section of Photoscape is where you can turn your photo into an animation. You can also turn graphics and clipart into animations in this section.

    Print - If you simply want to print photos, you can open this section, select the photo and printing size and print the photo.

    Splitter - The Splitter section will allow you to open a photo and split it into as many sections as you want. Kind of like a puzzle.

    Screen Capture - The Screen Capture section is where you can capture any section of your screen, edit it, and save it to your computer.

    RAW Converter - This section will allow you to convert RAW files to JPEG. To learn more about this file format, read RAW Image Files - Understanding RAW Photography.

    Color Picker - This is a built-in tool that allows you to select a color on your computer. It will then give you the color code and this is often used by web designers.

    Rename - If you have photos that you need to rename, this is the section you will need to open. You can also rename more than one photo at a time.

    Paper Print - In this section, you can create your own notebook paper and print it right from your computer.

    Viewer - The Viewer simply allows you to view your photos.

    The above are the alternative ways to open Photoscape. There are many sections in Photoscape to cover just about every photo editing need you may have. In the Editor section, there are several tools you can use.
