Thanks! Renée

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)

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).

Good Luck.
