The actual Adobe Photoshop CS4 is the way to go, but it costs $699. You could try the 30 day trial and see if you like it.

Photoshop Elements is another software often mentioned here on the forums. It's right around 50 dollars if memory serves me correctly and several contributors use it as their primary post processing software.

GIMP is a good photo editing software and it's free. You can rotate, crop, sharpen, brightness/contrast adjustments, and add/reduce color.

PS Elements is a nice suggestion, I use an older version, but I haven't seen it for less than $80 in some time.

In addition to GIMP you should also look at Picasa by Google, also free.

I was checking some on-line places like Amazon....and with shipping you would be close to $80 for Photoshop Elements 7.

I have seen several people on here that say they use Picasa...which as J indicated is free.

Haha. Not that I'm aware of, Jim. I'll continue to be on the lookout for maroon marker lights on former Conrail engines.

I see Elements for at Costco for around $40-$50 when it goes on sale. You could try finding an older version on eBay for a ton less money. Older versions that cost a fraction of the current version can sometimes be a good way to try out a program you are not sure you are going to like or not.

I use Picasa3 and it works fine. Although there latest update messed up the sharpen tool. Now you have to hold the shift key down and then click on sharpen. Other than that it's a nice program and easy to use. They have come a long ways with that program since it came out!

After using CS4, I find the tools in GIMP to be, at best, severely lacking. If you have the means I strongly suggest it. Elements is a decent compromise. Picasa is way too basic.

If you're a student and have ID they let it go for a lot less. PSE 7 is 90.00 and will do 98% of CS

Default Photoshop versus Elements

I would suggest that Photoshop Elements is the way to go. I have both CS2 and PSE and while I think the full versions of Photoshop offer some advantages, they are not worth the price unless you have some demanding needs, like restoring the color in old faded Ektachromes. Elements is an amazingly capable program for the money, and often on sale. Just make sure the version of Photshop you are getting is compatible with your camera if you shoot raw, since Adobe has a bad habit of not supporting older versions of Photoshop and not providing raw converters for the newer cameras. It's a jungle out there!
