Hi all,

Could someone please point me to photo/scanning software to get my sister started with this great hobby? I use elements 3.0, but this is more than she needs and is too much program for her older computer. The P3 has 512 meg of ram and can't take more. I tried to put elements on it and it ran slow and buggy. Looking for something lite until they can afford to move up. Thanks for the help.

I would try Acdsee 8 it's an excellent place to start and you can try a demo from the site OR get Ifranview ( its Free ) myself using acdsee for many years , I love it and the new version (8) is an absolute great upgrade from other versions with the abiltiy to add very nice 3D text etc, I think you would like this one IMHO:-)

many people recommend Picasa ,I don't use so I can't comment. But it's free to try and free to keep

Microsoft pictureit is very easy to use and isnt a memory hog.You can probably pick up an older version of it cheap.I still occassionally use the version I bought in 2000.

Give Corel (Jasc) Paint Shop Studio a shot. It's cheap and has lotsa one button things for a novice to get started. It's basically a slightly stripped down Paint Shop Pro, designed more for the novice photog rather than the Photoshop wiz..
