What’s the best photo editing software in 2022? Our colleagues at Imaging Resource, Digital Photo Pro‘s sister site, have tested much of it and released a comprehensive guide to their favorite photo apps of the year.

Below we’ve rounded up their picks of the top six photo editing software programs. Yes, there’s a lot more than just Photoshop these days which, ironically, doesn’t even make the list though Adobe’s excellent Lightroom Classic does.

“There are so many photo editing apps available out there,” Imaging Resource‘s Jeremy Gray writes. “It can be daunting to determine what will work best for you, your skill level, budget and the results you hope to achieve. That’s where we come in. We will break down the best available options and tell you a bit about each one, including its unique selling points and its strengths and weaknesses.”

Check out Gray’s software selections below including excerpts from his reviews of each one. To read the full story with all his recommendations, visit Imaging Resource.

  1. Have you tried Affinity Photo, it has a one time fee which is relatively cheap, but the functionality is premier. It also has design and publishing software which integrate into a quality suite of professional applications at a reasonable one time price.

  2. Good list. However, I am now disappointed with Skylum. Over the years I previously bought all of the versions of their software, including NEO. But, now they are charging even more when they add features to NEO. I have given them way too much money already and am done. Besides the programs above, there are fantastic plugins out there. Here are some of my favorites: Retouch4me, Topaz and Infinite Color.
