Searched F1 for this and a past item said Our Pictures was excellent.

I downloaded this. BUT the people you send pictures to have to have our pictures too?????????

Any opinions on best free software.

I have Infranview and Easy Thumbnails.


Camedia 4.1 which came with the Camera is a bit basic.

FOTOFX is an excellent free program.

If you can afford it Photoshop Elements is a good purchase(and cheap compared to its big brother)

I mainly fix the photos a wee bit and e-mail them - I quite like putting the on Calendars. Not much more. Often wondered how they get people to smile when they wern't tho (that programme probably cost an arm and a leg LOL)

At the moment I love this FXFOTO seems to be great why don't more people use it - or am I missing something

You may as well ask why so many people use Windows? Often people grab what is nearest a large part of the time. It may be a product is not well known, so it is not adopted, and so remains obscure.
For success in the current environment, a product's performance counts for less than it's promotion.

ULead PhotoImpact does about everything that Adobe Photoshop can do. You can get older programs of ULead for free, off magazine CDs, or perhaps off the Net - these are legal, not cracked (ULead wants you to upgrade to a better version so lets you have the older version for free). I have used ULead since version 3 and still have version 5 which is a freebie. If you cannot find a free version of it, let me know and we can get in contact via email.

I also have Photoshop 6 and Irfanview and have 3 programs that have come with digital cameras. Considering all, ULead PhotoImpact is a winner.

Sometimes Photoshop or Elements win because of the number of support sites you can find for help with different tasks or techniques.
