Image/Photo Programs

These programs are used to create web graphics such as banners or edit and develop photographs. Adobe Photoshop is notably the most popular image editing program, but don't limit your options to just this. There are other programs that are less expensive, and although they are less capable, they may be a better place to start for students who had never done image/photo editing. Also, if your students own iOS (iPod Touch, iPhone) or Android devices with a good camera, they can also use apps to edit photos right in their devices.
