PhotoPad Photo Editor is an image editing program developed by NCH Software. It offers different image tasks, editing functions and tools when working on images. The program offers various types of photo tasks. It can be used for creating collages and Panorama, setting images as desktop wallpaper and acquiring images from a TWAIN device. It also offers basic editing tools such as Undo/Redo, Resizing, Cutting/Copying/Pasting to Clipboard and Cropping/Extending images.

PhotoPad Photo Editor also features Layers such as those used in Adobe Photoshop. The program can insert Original Image Layer, Image Layer, Mosaic Layer and Text Layer. Original layers cannot be repositioned, resized, rotated or deleted. Unlike Original Layers, Image Layers can be resized, rotated or moved. When creating a mosaic project, it uses Mosaic Layer, which produces a mosaic photo to be placed on a canvas. Inserting texts on a canvas is also possible through the Text Layer. The program also features color adjustment layers. Available color adjustments tools include Brightness, Contrast, Exposure, Auto Levels, Tint and more. It is also possible to add effects to the layers. Available effects include Blur, Sharpen, Local Focus, Vignette and more.

PhotoPad also features different tools including Pixillion, PhotoStage, Express Burn, Flickr and Facebook. Pixillion is used for converting image files while PhotoStage is used for producing slideshows. It is also possible to burn projects through the Express Burn tool. The program can also be integrated with Flickr and Facebook, which can be used to upload images directly to Facebook and Flickr.
