I think the Gimp is well known and liked by all people who use versions of UNIX.

the gimp is about 10 time smaller than photoshop, i believe.irfan view is less than 900 kb and allows all filter factory plugins and flash media.i have been in touch with harald heim and compatibility is one of the toughest points nowadays regardind adobes new policies.
photoshop is great,no doubt about it,but if you can have more memory available,all filters just work best.L view pro accepts photoshop non compatible plugins as well.

I use Photoshop Elements myself. I try to run through bits in a book I bought but I think some online tutorials specifically for the different range of packages would be ideal. Perhaps you could set up something in your sites so that people could share their wisdom and give us with "L" plates some good tips and hints.

I see a mention of Corel Photopaint over a year ago on this forum.

I have used Photopaint for many many years for my image manipulation and it does everything that I want to do.

Version 7 Select edition is available for under 10.

I have photoshop but found it too unwieldy after the simpler interface with photopaint. I also had great difficulty in finding how to do some things which were very easy in photopaint

Is anyone using or has tried Microsoft Picture It! The latest version is called Digital Image Pro 2003 (or v7). I've heard some good comments, but unlike other photo software you cannot download and try it out for 30 days.
