    Default Picture editing Programs

    I was wondering if you guys have a recommendation on a decent picture editing program. I used to have software (I think it was called Photopaint or something like that) but it went bye bye when I upgraded my hard drive a year or so ago. At the moment I use IE to open jpegs but from what I can tell you cant do shit with it as far as edits go. Id like to be able to open jpegs, bmp etc and also be able to edit them (resize, airbrush etc).

    Any suggestions? Shareware would be nice but I dont have a problem spending a reasonable amount since it will be useful for work related stuff too.

    Thanks for your help!

    Paint Shop Pro has reached the quality level of Adobe's programs. http://www.jasc.com/products/paintshoppro/

    And if you want an old simple version of it. http://ds1.gnaunited.com/psp/psp412.zip

    You might try some of these too.

    If you have a zillion pictures and want to just view pictures/movies, do enhancements (no airbrushing) or convert pics then this may be the best and its free. You can use the PGUP/PGDN keys or space bar to view pics in a folder too. http://www.irfanview.com/

    The Adobe Photoshop is the Cadillac of photo editing programs. However, just as Wiseguy mentioned, Paint Shop Pro has made great strides and it the best place to start if you're just getting into photo editing.

    Paint Shop Pro is the best piece of software I ever bought and is available at a fraction of what the latest version of Photoshop costs.

    My current avatar, (and a number of previous ones) are PSP creations.

    I like CompuPic, but haven&#039;t tried PSP in many years. It have many editing convenience features, plays multimedia, helps organize your collection, does thumbnails, etc. (I hear it will do your other fingers too if you buy the deluxe version.)
    I loved going to strip clubs; I actually made some friends there. Now things are different for the clubs and for me. As a result I am not as happy.

    Customers are not entitled to grope, disrespect, or rob strippers. This is their job, not their hobby, and they all need income. Clubs are not just some erotic show for guys to view while drinking.

    NOTE: anything I post here, outside of a direct quote, is my opinion only, which I am entitled to. Take it for what you estimate it is worth.

    Best hands down would have be pirated photoshop. All photoshop with none of the cost.
    Have any comp savvy friends? I'm sure you could score a copy.

    I know i'm probably gonna get burned in this thread for my obvious lack of remorse for my actions in the context of pirating, but we all know we do it with music...to me it's not any different with programs if you take the time to learn how to do it.

    I'll echo those who said PSP (Paint Shop Pro). I've used the program for years, and love it. I use v7.04. I've tried the latest versions, but I'm still partial to the one I've used for so long.

    I've also grown fond of PhotoImpact (I use version 10). I'm amazed at what that program can do.

    If you want either program, let me know, and I can send a copy out to you.

    If you want FREEWARE editing.

    Look for GIMP.

    Or XnVIEW.

    Picasa for picture editing and organizing. MWSnap for saving screens or crops of screens. Both free and easy to use.

    I've just started messing with photo software. I've downloaded Serif's PhotoPlus 6, which is a free older version. I did have to register the software and give out an e-mail address. So far its been a good learnng experience.

    I've heard on a podcast..ThisWeekinTech or TWIT, about a version of GIMP thats been altered to operate more like PhotoShop.
