Although free, it will not be as robust as Lightroom or Capture One. It does, however, have an Artificial Intelligence Algorithm that corrects exposure, colors, contrast and more automatically. If you’re looking for something easy, no fuss and don’t want to go through the trouble of using more advanced editors, give this a try.
I received an offer for this software in my e-mail from Shutter Pulse and I had been thinking about it the past couple of days. Free image editor? Today I decided to check it out to see if it was for real.
Below is the text of the e-mail I received from Shutter Pulse. I simply clicked on the “Get it for Free” and was taken to their page where it asked for my name and e-mail. Within two minutes I had a License code in my Inbox! Meanwhile, in my browser, the software was still downloading 344 MB’s.

The install was pretty straightforward and took less than 3 minutes on my Windows PC. After installation to make mine a legal copy I just plugged in the e-mail I used to sign up on their site and used the License Key that was sent to that e-mail address.
Without a doubt, this is the easiest image editor I have used. I just played around with it the first 15 minutes and was able to create my first image, and I think it turned out pretty well using the AI algorithms.
As you can see there quite an improvement from the original RAW file (yes you can use TIFF or JPG files as well). I made zero changes from what the AI software did, taking me about 2 minutes. On loading the image the software looks for skies, color, and exposure. On saving it adds contrast, noise reduction, and some sharpening.
If you are in the market for a simple image editor that you can still tweak a little, you can’t beat this free software from Skylum. If you don’t want to subscribe to Adobe Lightroom or pay several hundred dollars for Capture 1, give this a try.
