Photoscape is free image-editing software developed by Mooii Tech. The program is capable of executing many dynamic editing tasks such as making actual photographs look like they were sketched in colour pencil. Photoscape does not have an explicit "Cut" tool, however. If there is a section of a photograph you would like to cut out, there are different ways to go about it depending upon what you are trying to achieve. For example, if you want to cut out a section of a photo and paste it onto a new canvas, you have to use the program's Crop tool.
