Before I started taking photography more seriously, and before it closed down, I was using Picnik to edit my photos. If I don't get the perfect picture but a tweak would improve it, which software do you suggest? Preferably not too expensive please.

Adobe Lightroom for me....

Its possible that the FREE software like Google Picaso would cater for you needs. Lightroom is a good choice if you need something with more features and you want to do something more than just "tweak".
Aah thankyou 'miptog' I will have a look
I would agree with Lightroom as an excelent packge for RAW editing.
For things that require more manipulation than brightness, colour and noise reduction there are free packages such as GIMP, and not-too-expensive programmes includes Photoshop Elements (about £50) or Paintshop Pro (about £40).
What camera do you use? I presume it came with a free software package.
If you were happy with Picnik, you will be more than happy with Picasa. When you are ready to move onwards and upwards then Photoshop Elements and/or Lightroom is the way to go as has been said.
Elements isn't to expensive and as far as I am aware it comes with Adobe's RAW editor
gets my vote amongst the freebies.
I've just tried 'Elements' and I was quite surprised at how little it actually does.
Thankyou all, I'll try Picasa first and have alook at the software I got with the camera. I have a Lumix GF3
That was what I meant to do the first time!
Just purchased Elements 10 a few weeks ago for £49 from Amazon. Adobe Raw comes automatically and I think it's the dogs danglers, really easy to use.
