Did a quick look up for this. Sounds interesting. Have you used it?Originally Posted by Beccaberry, post: 307642
I have done a fair bit of Photo manipulation with Photoshop, but I find that it`s one of those programmes that you need to be on it on a regular basis or else I forget exactly what to do.
For fairly basic fixes and to add a few effects, I tend to use Picasa which [best of all], is a free download. Maybe it`s worth having a peek Donna.
I have used GIMP quite a bit before switching to Photoshop. And while I found it less frustrating/more intuitive than PS, it certainly wasn't as easy to use as, say, Picasa or PicMonkey (which I love). Again, it all depends on what you're looking for and how much control you want to have over the process. TBH, I have never found "one" program that fits ALL my needs, I find I move between programs depending on my needs and how much time I have to spend on the project.
Given what you've said, Donna, this might be a great starting point. I tend to forget about paint.net because it's only for Windows, and I've become quite the "Mac girl" insomuch as photo editing is concerned. I've only used it in a limited capacity; but I agree with Chris, it might work for you. I think my downfall was twofold - 1) I switched platforms (to Mac) and 2) I have always had a slight distaste for the original "Paint" program - I always felt it was awkward and clunky...but then again MANY people feel that way about Photoshop!Originally Posted by Wendy, post: 307693
