    photo editing software

    I've been looking at getting a new computer and was wondering about photo editing software.


    What photo editing software do you use?

    John,

    Seven years ago, I had a special computer built for my amateur photographer/videographer wife. It had some specilized software from Dell.

    Just last week I replaced it with another special built Dell computer. I bought it with Adobe Photoshop Elements 8 for her photography.

    I also bought Adobe Premiere Elements 8 for her videography.

    I talked with a number of knowledgeable friends including one who is a professional photographer and Photoshop Elements was the recommended software by all.

    I have played with the program a little and it seems to be pretty intuitive so I think my computer challenged wife will be able to comfortably and easily use it.

    Elements gets good reviews.

    I use Gimp.

    It's quirky, but I'm used to it, and it is free, which suits my nature...
    There's usually more than one way to do it...

    I'm also using Photoshop Elements.

    For day-to-day cropping and resizing, I also use Irfanview, which is one of the best free software products I've used. It does a lot more than cropping and resizing, but it's not suitable for touching up a photo the way Photoshop can.

    I've been using FastStone Image Viewer for the last few years and I like it. It is freeware - so the price is right and it does have some nice features such as resizing, focus, frames, color adjusts, draw, etc.

    You can check out all of the features here: http://www.faststone.org/FSViewerDetail.htm

    I use PhotoShop Elements. Good bang for the buck. Something not always mentioned is the organizer part of it. Tagging your photos with keywords and names makes it very easy to find old pics.
