I don't much care for photoshop, which came with my computer, although maybe I'm using it wrong. What do the rest of you use? My problem is resizing.

I use Irfanview... bearfoot suggested it years ago http://www.irfanview.com/main_download_engl.htm

it is easy to use and I only use it for resizing..

I use Picasa on the computer and phone and love it. I think it's very easy to use, and the resizing is easy.

I use Paint.net - it's free. I also have Irfanview, but I found Paint.net to be easier for me.

I do have Photoshop Elements, but I use it mostly for fixing the white balance.

I have never had time to fiddle with photoshop, its on our computers but time to learn it all, thats not on the horizon. I use Digital Photo Professional.

Bob seems to like photoshop but to be honest, I can usually do the same thing much faster and sometimes my program does a better job of fixing an image that photoshop. I think its simply a case of what you prefer to use and can get used to, good luck Marynel
