Default Photo Editors

I'm wondering what's a good cheap photo editor and that will help sharpen my photos. Please help anyone?

There's Adobe Photoshop Elements, Adobe Lightroom, Corel Paint Shop Pro, ArcSoft Photo Impressions, and Bibble Pro, all of which are reasonably priced and available with a free trial download, and IrfanView which is free. There are also others, of course, but these are very popular.

Try Photoscape, Silkypix and GIMP. All are free. Photoscape is the easiest to use, but the others have more facilities.
