Comments: Photo Editing Software

Ted,

I've never been a big fan of Adobe products, other than PDF reader and writer.

They just seem to make things too darn difficult. I took a 3 day course in Adobe Photoshop 6 last year. There were 12 in the class. Only three of us were taking it for the first time. The school had a policy that allowed you to repeat the class as many times as you wanted within a one year period. Nine students were taking it again, some for the 3rd time.

Either this is a reflection of the school or the product. The school wasn't that bad.

I like using Paint Shop Pro. I find I can do a decent job with adjusting tones and colors very quickly. I also use Microsoft Image Composer.

PhotoShop Elements is supposed to be easier to use and is priced at $100.
