Hi! I'm a beginner here and need to start working on editing. Can anyone suggest a good editing programme?

Probably Photoshop Elements is a good place to start and not too expensive.
GIMP Free to download and use, has a good feature set and is able to do most things, but it's not without it's flaws....
I would suggest FastStone image viewer.
It's a bit more straightforward than Gimp and quite versatile but easy to use once you get used to the Flyout menus.
It's also freeware.(As is GIMP)
For a free site iPiccy is not bad
Elements, PaintShop Pro X5 Ultimate (cost about the same as Elements) Gimp.
Free on line editor Pixlr.
There's also Adobe Lightroom 4
. . . and Photoshop CS2 is still free.
In your position I would download the free trials of both Lightroom 4 (my preference) and Elements 11 from the Adobe website and have a play with both to decide which suits your needs best.
You say that you are a beginner. If you do not already have a cataloguing and workflow system set up, then now is the time to start using Lightroom as it combines those essential functions with basic photo-editing (or maybe not-so-basic, depending on your standpoint).
Thank you all for your suggestions
I have some free hours today, so I'll start working on it !
