image manipulation

I have done a quick search and didn't really find what i was looking for.

I have downloaded Gimp for the above uses and find it quite complicated to use and haven't got very far with it. Does anybody know of any other, simpler to use, free downloads.

Gimp is good but I know what you mean about it being difficult when you start. I you can get to grips with it you will find it very good and it will get easier with practice.

However if you want to find something else, have a look here click here

The free version of Photoplus from Serif might be worth a look click here ...alB

As an amateur photographer (hobby) i do not see and cannot justify something like Photoshop at this present time,though am considering click here

However,i do use Photoscape with good success click here

When you say manipulation ,what exactly do you mean ?

Regarding Gimp,i have also found this a struggle but am slowly getting the hang of it.

Inserting images into images, partial or whole and generally messing about with graphics and creating my own pictures.

If you are going to get into this, there is NO substitute for Photoshop / PS Elements.There is a learning curve, but then there will be one for Gimp. I use PS Version 7 which covers about 80% of PS CS. So for £60 or so you have an excellant imaging prog for life. David

If you're new to photo editing ( manipulation I always think suggests some sort of guilty activity!) I would suggest you go to google and put in 'Picasa 3' and then download it. It's a great free image editing programme and relatively easy to use.

This is also quite a good FREE photo program.
