Photo editing - try Gimp

Gimp screenshot example from the Gimp website
For several years I had been using an old version of Photoshop Elements to carry out basic editing of photos to add to this blog and my websites. When I "restored" my PC recently I made a decision NOT to reinstall it or MS Office, instead planning to use freely available alternatives.  For the photo editing I opted for a freeware package called Gimp, which many will know ... but I didn't. As far as I can tell so far it does everything I could before and quite a lot more all for nothing. See http://www.gimp.org/ for more information and various downloads.

GIMP is a great free image editing programme. Ive been using it fow a few years now on my photos that I upload to flickr.

GIMP is the perfect replacement for Photoshop, no doubt about it. It's a bit too much for the editing I usually do, however. For my editing I've found that Photoscape (free, too) does all I need and more.
