A replacement for Adobe Photoshop?

#1
Guys,

Firstly, I'm cheap and have been using for the last couple of years the Adobe Photoshop Album starter pack which came free with the last two beasts I have bought.

It is v good, does what I want, has a nice time line which tells you when the photos were taken and that is enough for me.

I've just had the "now need to register product message" which I tried to do to, to be told the product wasn't in existance anymore and I would have to buy something new.

Great drive to get me onto their Photoshop. Fair do ....but as I said I am cheap :)

Does anyone have a suitable alternative that they use that I might also have a look at or another sensible suggestion of a marketed product?

Yours Aye

IrfanView is pretty good and easy to use.

Gimp is fine if you want to just do the basics.

But it's a pain in the proverbial to learn if you want to do flashy editing.

I use it at work (I produce documentation for a major software company) but frankly I just use it as am image capture tool. I put all the annotation, etc on using Microsoft Visio.

However, if you want to put the time in learning it - and you don't mind getting incredibly frustrated when the documentation is less than helpful, than you can do a lot with Gimp. Its certainaly as good as (if not better) that a lot of the other Freeware.
