I like XnView, Although I've been using the one from 2004 until this article reminded me that their might be an update, :-P

It's great for simple batch operations that you don't need a full editor for (I use it all the time to resize my photos and tag them). Its so simple, you really can't beat it!

Hey Murph are you going to stay as a blogger with the maximumpc.com website? If so awsome. BTW how's the new job and I agree on Gimpshop. It appears to be freaking awsome.

Wish I could tell you, friend!  With luck, perhaps I'll be popping up on MPC from time to time with fun articles like these.  Hope you enjoy the rest of Free Week!

Paint.Net is a great free photo editing application.  Lots of useful tools, lightweight, and fast.  Did I mention free? www.getpaint.net

I'll give it a try. Unfortunately, it's Windows only. GIMP is cross-platform and fully open source. Important to those of us who spend a significant amount of time on Linux desktops.

it does everything I've ever needed to do. For free.

Adobe can continue ripping off graphics pros, but I see no need for the average consumer to lay out even $80 for Photoshop Elements. $600+ for the full product? Hehe...good one.

What about Paint.NET?

Indeed. Paint.NET is so much easier to use than GIMP.

I love Paint.NET!!!!

I third that! Paint .NET is one of the best photoshop alternatives imo and its free! Wake up MPC staff!

Maximum PC is well aware of Paint.NET, as it frequently appears on many of the magazine's monthly CDs.  And it's a fine program in its own right.  I thought the (somewhat) successful recreation of a Photoshop environment in Gimp was worth highlighting.

I second SEALBoy's suggestion! Paint.NET is a great photo editor.  I use it all the time.

What about the alternative of piracy, or try before you buy rather.....

For centuries mankind has heard of the wonder of living environment on earth, an event that will raise living standards began to wrap. Effort to understand the events that appear to be ordinary, in fact the world is a place full of mystery and has led them to realize the need to resolve. Only to understand and feel the need to solve the traditional science, although science phase of the split type is not only to solve the solution includes more than just progress. Science in retrospect some of the most important numbers math, geometry, sky science and medicine is. Mathematical analysis of a wide range of systems developed since the first times I was still new formulas, systems, theories of science are being developed so that continuity is an example. Essential elements of the scientific laws of science, though, still remains a lot to discuss the scientific accuracy of the law. istanbul evden eve nakliyat and evden eve nakliyat is perfect evden eve nakliyat

Photoshop has trials of the Creative Suite Editions...constantly re-insatlling (including removing the registry) is legal.

One of the kids in the front row of the gimp picture is trying to cop a feel on the girl with her hands on her knees.

avatar

Magaliiiii

to be fair, there are actually two feels being copped; another girl in the front row is harassing a third.

avatar

TheMurph

Note how everybody in said picture is being what one might call, "silly."  Obviously, said person is not legitimately trying to "cop a feel."  :b

I tried GIMP. But Paint.Net is much simpler and has similar features.

MPC is my home page

He's not trying, he's succeeding.
