photo editor

An image editing application for digital photos. It is used to crop and touch up photos, as well as organize them into albums and slide shows. Photo editors typically do not have the myriad filters and features of a full-blown image editor such as Adobe's Photoshop or Corel's Paint Shop Pro. However, every photo editor includes a basic set of tools sufficient for most consumers. See photo manager, graphics viewer, image editor, digital camera and slide show.
