Whether you are a newbie or a professional, you’ll be amazed how you managed without it. It supports GIF and JPG formats (and many more) and is the perfect package for designing web graphics.

Saint Paint Studio is also fantastic for photo editing, with many tools including eliminating red-eye, image sharpening, and full support for printing out images. Its versatility makes it the essential graphics tool, whatever your needs are.
