How to save your images from being used in commercial apps

A digital photographer with nearly two decades of experience will likely tell you the quickest way to get your photos taken and published is to use a professional image editing app.

And that’s exactly what you should be doing.

The good news is that there are plenty of apps to help you.

Here are five free and professional image editors that are worth considering.


Image Editor Lite is a free, professional image editor that lets you create and save full-resolution, professional-quality images for websites, social media, and more.

Image Editors Lite is available on the Mac, Windows, and Linux operating systems, but it’s most popular on Windows.


The Image Editor Pro is a $9.99 app that lets users create and edit photos that are about the same size as an iPhone photo or as a JPEG photo, but at a resolution of 20 megapixels or less.

It can be downloaded for free.
