Default I love looking at the modified pics

I just love looking at all these wonderful pics. What programs do you all use. I have seen a few mentiod. I am looking into getting a photo editing program free or pay and I like one that could do the modified stuff as well as the basic photo fix stuff.

Hi Gerrie!
Welcome to the forum! I, myself, use Photoshop and I believe it's the most popular program out there. Others use Paint Shop Pro and from what I hear it's also a very good program. Hope this may answer your question.

There is a free down load of Photo tools which I love. I use it now after photoshop but I think it is a stand alone also and very good. It is by onOne software.

elements 7 is a good introduction to photoshop and relatively cheap compared to other versions.

As Simon said Elements 7 is a very good program. I still use Elements 4 and find it does everything I need, and more. Stitchbabe produces some very nice images, but her software is very expensive when compared to the elements version. I also use paintshop pro X, but I like elements better.

Gerrie, forget what anyone says about the expense of the software. When you decide what software it is you wish to use PM me and I will help you out. Base your decision on what you want to USE and not on what it will COST.

Gerrie, there are some really neat programs out there, but it's hard to beat Photoshop Elements 7 to get you a good introduction. It will do most of the things you see in these threads. Once you get used to doing some of the effects, you're in a better position to evaluate whether you want to get one or more of the more specialized programs like Corel Painter. (fantastic program, but big learning curve)
