I used to have a really good photo editing programme on my old laptop, I think it was Microsoft Picture It. It was quite simple but I liked the different ways you could change photos to look like photocopies or pencil sketches etc. Basically I need a fairly simple editing programme to use for my artwork. Most programmes that I've seen don't seem to let you do much to the image itself in the way of filters. Can anyone recommend anything to me to buy or (even better) download for free.
I have the Micrografx Picture Publisher prog on a CD which came with a Scanner about 9 years ago. I also have the FREE Picture Publisher Light program (PP70LE)which seems to be exactly the same as the original except for the possibility to match a printer to the screen colours as far as I can see. As you say, it's a very good program and I never use anything else.
