Replies to This Discussion isn't a bad free program and fairly user friendly. -  here is what the 'blurb' says -

It started development as an undergraduate college senior design project mentored by Microsoft, and is currently being maintained by some of the alumni that originally worked on it. Originally intended as a free replacement for the Microsoft Paintsoftware that comes with Windows, it has grown into a powerful yet simple image and photo editor tool. It has been compared to other digital photo editing software packages such as Adobe® Photoshop®, Corel® Paint Shop Pro®, Microsoft Photo Editor, and The GIMP.


hello dear 

go for gimp or  or u can do editing in picassa also :)

merry Christmas :)

picasa from google, free

Photoscape is a great little program, light, quick and easy has some fun filters and they have now a clone stamp.

GetPaint-Ive used, it's decent program. Irfanview -which take lots of ps plugins. It doesn't keep raw data and think paint net doesn't either. I tried Zoner (12) from a suggestion in this thread, 'cause I was curious-it seems to do a nice job. I always look for easy and will try out new just for something different, but I always end going back to Irfanview for my viewer and use the other programs for whatever better editing options that it doesn't have....I tried the trial of PS5 and like very much the 'content aware', which i used the most. And once you figure out what you like, a work flow will come into play of your best liking of a program or programs...

my best advice is to start with the easy ones like Irfanview or Picasa, then once you've learned the basics then you can try programs like GIMP. The learning curve of some of these rich featured softwares are overwhelming to newbies unless you have an IQ of say 200 or higher...:)
Find a student and get it legit for 80% less of the cost.

I use Paint Shop Pro for the majority of my editing. Not free but an amazing program if you learn to use it. Online and free ... try Picasa and I have used Pixlr and have a friend that does all of her editing on Pixlr, the images are great. Some limitations, but.... its free.


I never used Gimp so I cant comment.

I just bought Photoshop Elements 9 for under $100. US, it is a great program and more user friendly the the CS 3-5 is free and really effective, I'd definately reccomend that

hi check out

Its a cool viewer and has basic but good editing functions and alot of useful functions ;-)

Thank you all for your suggestions,
