being a new member and looking at the photos it seems to me lots of members use computer software to enhance there photos is this right and if so what programmes do they use.

Usually Photoshop Elements the cheapest and does 99% of what most would need, Adobe Light Room next on the ladder price wise, Adobe Cs5/6 the most expensive but the most professional.
Welcome to ePHOTOzine Dave, and thanks for joining in in the forums. I use Lightroom and Photoshop
Welcome Dave...I've recently graduated to Lightroom, but started off with Picasa and pixlr..both free and a great way to learn the basics. I also tried `Gimp' but found it too unwieldy. I think you have to make some decisions about what you want from the software before you invest.
Welcome to EPX. I use Lightroom 4.2 and Photoshop CS6
I use Lightroom and Photoshop Elements. If you have Canon gear, their free processing software is great and Picassa is a very good free photo organiser software.
Lightroom and Photoshop CS5 & CS6.
Occasionally FastStone and Picasa.
I was lucky in that a was a late convert from film to digital and bought my first digital SLR just about the same time as Adobe introduced Lightroom. So, more by chance than design, that forms the basis of my post-exposure processing. Very, very satisfied with it, especially now that it is version 4.2.
Being a technophile I also use Photoshop CS6, Nik SilverEfexPro2, HDREfexPro2 and ColorEfexPro4 and a variety of Topaz plug-ins. But the important point is that I use all those other packages from within Lightroom which, really, still forms the backbone of my workflow system.
By the way, when you say "being a new member and looking at the photos it seems to me lots of members use computer software to enhance there photos", how could you tell?
Tx guys for answering my letter , the reason I thought some photos were enhanced is the lighting effect some have and also some seem to have lots of colour saturation.
My gear is a Panasonic fz48 and I have an extra zoom lens and macro lens to attach when I require them
