PhotoFiltre is a complete image retouching program. It allows you to
do simple or advanced adjustments
to an image and apply a vast range of filters on it. It is simple and
intuitive to use, and has an easy
learning curve. The toolbar, giving you access to the standard filters
with just a few clicks, gives
PhotoFiltre a robust look.

PhotoFiltre uses two types of vectorial selections. The first type uses
automatic shapes (rectangle,
ellipse, triangle, rhombus, rounded rectangle). The second type corresponds
to the lasso and polygon.

a series of lines. Every
selection can be saved into a seperate file, to be used later on.
toolbar is primarily made up of drawing tools, such as pipette, displacement
cursor, fill bucket,
aerosol, brush, drop of water (blur), cloning stamp, smudge (finger)
and magic wand.
PhotoFiltre has some standard brushes (round and square in different
sizes), but also some more varied
forms (oblique line, leave, star, etc...).
