Photo editing/organizing software?
I use a p&s compact camera for all my pictures, the Casio EX-V8. Since I recently retired, I can no longer scavenge the photoediting software that came with my old company computer!.

I'm using Adobe Photoshop Elements, actually mainly due to affordability (99$). It seems to have the right mix of features for my needs, but I don't find that it is particularly user friendly (though I could get used to it). Are there some similar programs out there that I should be considering?.

Thanks for any help you can provide!..

Keep at it! You'll get there eventually and then you'll be pleased to find that the initial complexity is only because there are so many features!.

If you've not seen it already, there's a very informative User Manual that Adobe themselves have prepared (loads of detail, 400+ pages)..

For whatever reason, this doesn't appear to have been included on the PSE6 disk, and you'll have to download it as a PDF file..

It's 36Mb, so pick a quiet time to get it from here: http://help.adobe.com/.../en_US/PhotoshopElements/6.0/pselements_6_help.pdf.

Hope that helps,.

I, too, would recommend Corel Paint Shop Pro. Any version from 10 on up. You can get a free 7-day access to training videos at Lynda.com by googling "lynda discounts"..

You can purchase PSP 10 on ebay for next to nothing...

I'm a great advocate of open source software or (mostly on Windows) freeware where it does the job..

I use Picasa 2 for organisation. It's free and it is easy to use. It is also good for many basic image adjustments..

There is lots more free software that will do the job of image adjustment. Visit:.

Http://www.photo-freeware.net/.

For a massive range of free photo software..

For adjusting photos, there is Picasa2 as previously mentioned, Photofiltre, Rawtherapee, The Gimp and lots more..

You don't need to spend lots of money..

There is a manual for elements depending on which one you have, request the URL in the forum I've linked you to.Rationally I have no hope, irrationally I believe in miracles.Joni Mitchell..
