I know it's always a balance of doing enough editing, but not too much.

I try to stick with the last..

To throw a cheap one into the mix - Faststone Image Viewer. Ample for editing a few pics. Pretty intuitive, I've only felt the need to look at the help guide twice. The rest can be worked out by playing with it .

Thanks for the tip, Bev. I've also done a bit of internet research over my lunch break and found a couple of free online photo editing sites, Pixlr and picnik which I'll have a play with later.

I have a copy of Photoshop CS which I've had for ages and I did go through a whole load of tutorial CDs that Digital Photo Mag used to produce (still got them somewhere) but it's so complicated that you have to use it all the time to remember the commands which I haven't had time to do.

Shame really as it is a fantastic package I just think it does far too much for most people's needs.

I also have elements which I mainly use for organising which it is excellent for.  But then for some reason when I want to edit I go back to CS instead of using Elements which would make more sense but a strange quirk I've found it that colours can be a bit off when I print out of elements and CS is spot on.  I don't know if it's my setup doing that or not.

Claire, it sounds like your colourspace is set wrong in your elements package

I don't quite have a handle on it myself, but the colourspace issue has caused me many a problem in the past. (One magazine I used to work with was using such a very different colourspace to me that when they printed my images, bright red buttons would come out as bright purple etc. I had to stop advertising with them in the end because no-one there would just address the problem and let me know what colourspace they were using so I could work with it rather than against it.)

Its sort of like different ways the program interprets colours.  If I were you, I would try to find out what colourspace your CS is using, since that seems to work out, and set your photoshop elements colourspace to the same one.

Googling photoshop colourspace might give a better explanation of the whole thing (or just confuse more, as it did with me frankly!)

Another freebie is "Gimp". It can be found at http://www.gimp.org/ and I have found it quite useful. (Don't whatever you do Google "GIMP"!!!)    ;D ;D ;D

Thanks Emma, I might just do that, it's been something that has bugged me for ages but having found a workaround haven't really bothered with it.

I will make myself look this weekend.

Or play with clay

Erm...

Has anyone tried GIMP?

http://www.gimp.org/

Just as powerful as Photoshop for the average user and it's FREE :)
