Les 5 meilleures alternatives à Microsoft Paint

Vous connaissez tous l’outil Paint pour Windows. S’il peut dépanner, parce qu’il s’ouvre vite et permet de faire quelques modifications basiques, il n’en demeure pas moins très limité en fonctionnalités, même si au fil des versions il s’est bien étoffé. Il ne gère pas les calques pour faire quelques montages basiques, il ne propose pas d’effets ou de filtres d’optimisation pour éditer quelques clichés, les outils d’éditions sont peu nombreux et très limités, etc … Alors la solution n’est pas nécessairement Photoshop, qui pour le coup nécessite un poil plus d’expertise, mais une solution intermédiaire, rapide, bien équipée, et intuitive. Je vous propose de découvrir 5 excellentes alternatives à Paint.

 

Les 5 meilleures alternatives à Microsoft Paint
