Hi Sam,

You may want to download a copy of Picasa 3 from Google.com. It is a free photo editing software package supplied by Google. It can do all of the edits that have been discussed to this point, and then some.

It has quite a few features that, for the normal person doing straight forward
crop, sharpening, and other simple fixes it is a great alternative.

Best part about it; it's FREE.

True that, I use it a lot.
It organizes your photos and does all of what Ziggy says.

It also has an online storage system that friends can access. Like these of my daughter's I put up of her and her kids.

Well worth the price...

Hi Sam, I just gave it a quick shot. I have elements 4. I started out with it, and since it still does everything I want it to, I haven't upgraded. I did try elements 9 for a month and didn't really like it any better than mine, so I didn't get it. Now, if/when I get a new laptop with windows 8 or newer, I will have to upgrade, because this version works on vista and older. I also have picasa 3, and as Zig said, it will do almost everything elements will do, except, obviously,, layers, and other fine tuning tools that not everybody will ever use. Main things to get you going are color, saturation, contrast, lighting, and sharpness, and anything else I may have left out. It really doesn't take a whole lot to add some punch to a picture.
