    avsilky,
    with so much software available to do this it is difficult to advise.

    Most of them are good and excel in some form or other.


    Adobe photoshop is the choice of professionals. It is very feature rich but takes a lot of time to master. If you are into publishing then this is your tool.

    Paint shop pro on the other hand is 1/10 of the price (if you pay for it!!!) still offers a wealth of features but is much much easier to learn. But if you dont intend to touch up pictures its overkill.

    Then there are album tools, there are so many of these. I wouldnt know where to start.

    Do a wish list then Im sure some recommendations can be made!


    Im sure you will get better advice if you state what you want from the software.

    Have you had a look at photoshop elements ... cut-down version of photoshop specifically for digital camera/image users ... now on v2 and available for about £50 or cheaper ...

    Agree Photoshop Elements - but do yourself a favour and get a book called "Photoshop Elements Solution" by Mikkel Aaland. Immensely valuable book to extract the best from this excellent program (virtually 90% of Photoshop) for around £50.

    Have Photoshop Elements and Adobe Premiere LE 5.1 - came with the computer but no "how to" books so have delved mostly into Elements blindly. Just wanted to make sure there wasn't anything else better out there before I spend all my time learning the software. Thanks for the suggestions and I'll look for the Solutions book.:)

    Hang on to Elements, don't spend any money for the moment, but, have a look at www.retouchpro.com
    or
    www.ephotozine.co.uk

    There is a wealth of knowledge on these two sites as well as tutorials, hints, tips, and forums occupied by a bunch of very friendly digital enthusiasts.

    Retouch Pro is American, E Photozine is UK based.
