Just wondering if you could give me some advice...I am a total novice, but I take reasonable pics and have a digital camera, tablet and decent camera phone. I am always taking photos on the move while walking my dogs or getting quick snaps of my 4 year old girl, what I need is some advice on what graphics tools to use. One that is easy to use, costs as little as possible but is good to use....
Tall order I know!!! Feed back would be appreciated

Also sorry...totally got distracted by Chloe and made a hash of the topic title!!!
Try Googling 'Gimp' & 'Picassa' for starters......they're free downloads & easy to use !!!
There's lots out there, for free, just can't remember any more ?.
Have a look on 'Cnet' downloads too !!!.....lots to go at !
Gimp is one of the most advanced free ones and we have lots of free to view Gimp tutorials that will help you use it.
You could try looking here.
Pixlr would get my vote out of that lot.
Another alternative and one that I use sometimes is FastStone image viewer.

Thank you Pete x and must say your landscape photos are fantastic!!
paint.net is also free
If you want one of the best imaging software programmes on the market for a very reasonable price, go and get Adobe Photoshop Lightroom v4.2 (£95.60 Amazon) There's plenty of free training videos on Youtube.

True enough Stephen provided you're shooting RAW but Lightroom's somewhat overkill if you're using Jpegs.
One of the others would probably be more suitable if that's the case.
Another vote for FastStone..It's quite easy to use and is freeware.
There's a useful Help section with tutorials covering most of its functions.
then elements 10, free for a month free to download and about £45 if you want to keep it, price varies a lot, shop around , nothing gained or lost if you dont like it, uses Raw and Jpegs
Gimp and Picassa with the latter being good for library/organising leaving your bank balance intact
FastStone seems one of the best freebies. It does RAW conversion as well.
Thanks everyone I will have a look x
