Photo Software

A question that comes up often is, "What software is good to manage photos?" I use Picasa which is a Google property. If you have ever used the Adobe Photoshop program, you'll probably love Picasa. It's straightforward and you don't need to be a witchdoctor specializing in voodoo to make it work. Pause for thought: Is Adobe's main headquarters deep in the jungle? (Now they will probably snatch Flash away from my computer, lol). With Picasa I've eliminated ALL camera software which can be clunky and resource intense. One of my least favorite software products on the planet is anything written by Kodak. Hey, they make wonderful cameras, but their software is terrible.

Got a really good software for photos? Share it with us! Use the comments and help a fellow net traveler out!

I too love Picasa for importing and managing. Also for quick and easy cropping and minor editing.

I use IrfanView for batch operations such as renaming and resizing.

GIMP is my photoshop alternative.

All three are free!!!

Don't want to download anything?

Wow! TYVM for a great link! Heck, I'd forgotten about how GIMP was one of the first major pieces of opensource freeware. It's a great program that has steadily improved. Will check out InFranView too. Appreciate you sharing David!
