Thread: good photo/image editor?

Last post in 2002. Hm....
I don't know if you still need any feedback kwun, but I'd just post it anyway.
Gnu Image Manipulator Program (GIMP).
Open Source, free, you can modify it if you like. Free. Almost as good as Photoshop. Free.
Linux users swear by it. Has a Win32 version. You must install the GTK+ runtime library first.

don't overlook MS PAINT. It comes with windows and is surprisingly versitile. The one bundled with XP can crop, resize, and import just fine. It doesn't anti-alias the image as it resizes, but you never said it had to anti-alias.
If you want something more powerful, try GIMP. It works in windows as well as linux, and is as powerful as photoshop in the right hands... though it is much much harder to use than photoshop. If you think photoshop is hard then you should probably just skip gimp then. Gimp is freeware btw. (actually GNU open source, which is close enough to free.)
btw kwun, increase the maximum vertical resolution of images. That way i can combine multiple images into one file (smaller size and fewer posts and less screen space used). There is no reason not too.

Ah, I guess my reply is waaay too late....
Photoshop Elements is the best choice for under 100 bux.
Give ACDSee a try too.
For free? Hmm... Microsoft Paint?
Hey I used to use Paint to crop and resize images.

But Paint is so........... 'boring'....
I had been fortunate enough to have a copy of licensed Photoshop 7 to used at the office, so, I'd find anything else pretty boring.

aside from it's simplistic interface... paint is surprisingly powerful... it's better than what came with my scanner(s) anyway.

Are there any new and simple software in the market? Photoshop CS3 is just too complicated sigh.... Would like to use the software to crop, quick fix and resize to upload to this website.

Try lightroom. I've been using it on my latst HK Open pics. Pretty good.
So simple, I needed Kwun to help me work out how to use it!

You guys are all on PCs
You don't know what you're missing.
Check out Aperture (it's for a Mac, of course)
The apple website should be an eye-opener
PS: It's never too late to change

Or if you'd like to try, you can check out PictureTrail Photo Editor or Paint.NET (very similar to Photoshop)..I believe both are free and can be downloaded from download.com..
*Btw, where's our bigredlemon??..it seems like i haven't seen him post in here for ages..

Wow, didn't expect this thing to turn up again!
Anyway, I take back what I said about GIMP. Tried using it when Photoshop wasn't available in the past two months and heck is was difficult to use.
If you have the dosh, go Photoshop. Even the older version 7 (if possible, CS) will be more than adequate for most things people do and more.
It's the granddaddy of graphics editing software.

Adobe now has a very collaborative union with Apple
In fact, the Creative Suite 3 package (which has all the pro software including Photoshop) has now been released for OS X Leopard, Apple's latest OS for the Mac.
And, you bet, it works faster and better on a Mac
