Free judging software Most camera clubs run competitions and many use software to help with the judging. For clubs who don’t yet have a software or would like to try a new one, here’s a free one to consider. Written by PN reader Mark Kemp, Pictures is Windows only.

It’s free to download the software and the instruction manual from the website.
