    I got a copy of (other techies- don't kill me here) Microsoft Picture It with some photo laser photo paper I bought and was actually pretty happy with it for very basic functions. Might be better than what comes with cameras and scanners, not sure. If you are looking for other freeware stuff just Google "freeware" and follow the millions of links. Word of caution though- some software that is free is free for a reason and may be dangerous so use at your own risk!!

    For what little stills I take I use ArcSoft PhotoStudio 5. For the most part I take grabs from my video and use them in the video. Don't know how it compares to others but it was fairly cheap and seems to work pretty good.

    I edit wedding photos (which are a pain in the rear end) for a local photographer. I wouldn't use anything else other than Adobe Photoshop.

    I use Lightroom & photoshop CS2. Lightroom is great for $200 bucks or what ever it is, the sorting and metadata that you can add with it. if you are only doing color correction then Lightroom is the program.

    Here's an example of a very quick (1 minute) session in Paintshop Pro using the Histogram.

    Take a look at Charlotte.Smith's profile and her photo (second attachment).

    Attached, is a quick color correction. Which is more natural? True, the photographer saw all that green water, but in the first(corrected), the diver is more naturally colored. You decide...

    I get Photoshop free from work (site license allows installation on home computer as well), so ... I win.

    Poke around on download.com. Or Tucows (stupid name but great site) Although Tucows is more shareware - try b4 you buy and send the author something if you keep it. Picasa is Google's free photo manipulation program.

    If you or any member of your immediate family meet any of these criteria:
    Education end users are full or part time students, faculty, staff and employees of government-certified educational institutions.
    Then Adobe offers serious discounts on all their software through their educational program - as much as 2/3rd's off on some products. I've thought about taking a class just for that reason.
