Default Inexpensive software for novice

I've used Corel Photo House (Ver 1.1.) for years because it came with my Word Perfect Suite.

Software came with both my Olympus digicam and my Sony camcorder but, oddly, I find that neither do as much as Photo House. I also don't like the cluttered, cutesy user interface that the new programs seem to have.

What are some decent programs out there that don't cost an arm and a leg?

I've used it for some time and through a few upgrades, and it does what I need it to do

I'd suggest looking at editors that cost about $100 (full retail, they are often on sale) like Paint Shop Pro (Shareware - http://www.jasc.com/).

Photo explosion $19.95 at Walmart or Photoshop elements at $58. The former is easy the latter does wayyyyyy more.

I would second the recommendation for Photoshop elements. The price is right, it is comprehensive, not cutesy, and will move you way up the Photoshop learning curve, should you decide to go to the full version in the future. since Elements and PS is a standard, you will find a lot of support for it, on line and in magazines, books, etc.

I use Paint Shop Pro, if memory serves me right it was about $30 and it's pretty powerful imho. I'm a web developer and I use it for about 80% of my work.

edit: wow... times have changed.. I'm still using psp7 O_o
oh well.... I'd still say psp is worth $87; check ebay for a n.i.b. see if you can get one cheaper there.

Psp is great! You can even download a free trial from jasc.com
Also photoshop, which you can get from adobe.com which is around $600 compared to the $100 or so for psp.
