[QUOTE][Or, you could try Gimp that is free http://www.gimp.org It will give you many of the same options you have in PS./QUOTE]
Thanks gjtoth, I downloaded it today and it looks like just what I need to start out with. Too cool

I found a great way to learn is to connect 2 monitors up to your computer ( if it will take it some wont) and then play a free you tube tutorial on 1 screen and copy the processes on the other screen with your edit program.
Thanks Mark for the complement, and if you want you can message me in private to tell me how to do the hook up. Sounds like a great idea.

You guys ROCK! I hope you all realize that when I start taking pictures that begin to equal yours in quality and content, it will only be that you all have given me the advice and guidence that leads to that end.

Hi Frank: I find that PhotoFiltre is a very good free program, with an easy learning curve.

Steven,
Thanks for the link, I will check that out, I need something with as small a curve as possible (preferably a streight line) LOL

Marawder,
Thats funny I never thought of using this method for that purpose, but it seems like a quicker fix than the PP Hawgwild uses. LOL

Hi Frank,
I tried to pm you about the 2 monitors but I couldn't sus it. I don't know much about computers but it was easy. My brother in law is a computer repair man and he gave me a great tip, he said when ever he has a problem he doesn't know the answer to he just googles the problem and 9 times out of 10 someone has been there before and posted an answer. I googled, setup 2 moitors in windows 7 and there was some easy guides there. I have a newer machine now and it has 2 monitor connections on the back but my older machine only has 1.
I cant say how much easier it has made learning being able to follow a tutorial on 1 screen and copy the actions in real time on the other. Before this i found by the time I stopped the video tutorial minimised it and started on my pic in photoshop I had completly forgotten what I had just watched on the tutorial
Mark
