    I spent SO much time trying to find the best and most entertaining photo editing programs. I know that PS was the highly recommended program, but I think I found something even better. Has any ever tried out PhotoForge?? It's pretty awesome and addicting. Anyone using it that would like to share some opinions on it and/ or tricks and tips??

    Snapseed is by far the best photo editing tool in my opinion. Its not free but worth buying. iPhoto looks great and has a few neat touches that snapseed doesn't but it's still not as good. I use snapseed and then what snapseed can't do I edit in iPhoto lol

    PhoroForge looks like the max image size that you can save is 1600 x 1200 - not the best for printing, but otherwise it looks good. I wonder why iPhoto gets only 3 stars on the App Store reviews? (I've bought too many photo apps already anyway.)

    This is just MY opinion, but I have tried iPhoto, and I don't think it quite compares...

    If you're interested in taking a look at my photos in my profile, I have posted some examples of the programs I have been using thus far. Would love to hear an opinion :)

    I have a hard time saying anything is best, especially if I have not used all of them extensively.

    So, Kyrsta, which have you used? What makes PhotoForge stand out above the others? I only have iPhoto and I got that because so much noise was made about it when the new iPad came out. I never had reason to look beyond it. I did like your pics, but I'm unsure this could not be achieved in iPhoto or if iPhoto even attempts to compete with PhotoForge. Sometimes you need more than one tool depending on what you wish to achieve.

    Hey AQ :)

    Hmm, how does PhotoForge stand out...I think I like it so much because it reminds so much of PS which is something I worked on at school for a long time. Another one of those programs that I got quite addicted too :) But, honestly, it's not very fair of me to judge iPhoto in comparison, as I didn't give it a very fair shot. I tend to get bored easily and if I don't like what I see within the first 10 mins or so, I start looking somewhere else. My husband is actually the one who found Forge for me, and for the reason of it having such rave reviews, I gave it a shot and got hooked within the first 2 mins. I love having the ability to add effects and filters. I don't believe I saw those options in iPhoto? Correct me if I'm wrong...

    If you dot mind me asking, what sort of projects do you enjoy working on the most and do you have a program you favor more so than others?
