Photoglyph is a free image editor for Windows 8 that allows you to easily edit your images with the click of a button. The app allows you to set the RGB tones of the images, a feature that most image editors don’t offer. Apart from that, you also get the option to easily convert the image that you are working on to either Grayscale (Black & White), or to Sepia mode. The app also allows you to resize the image by specifying the custom height and width, and apart from that, it also allows you to apply a color cast to your image.
Photoglyph is a very lightweight tool and is less than an Mb in size. The app does not consume a lot of system resources, and goes easy on your battery, not to mention the fact that it has an extremely easy to understand interface, and the controls are big enough to be optimized for touch screen Windows 8 devices as well. Photoglyph is definitely a one stop photo editing tool that you must have on your Windows 8 device.
Photoglyph is available for free from the Windows app store.
