Hi All,

I'm looking for a photo image application that is easy and free to use, something that I can insert an image into to crop or reduce size and maybe put a nice border around the photo.

Something quick and easy if possible,

Many thanks,

I have two computers one running XP and another Vista, so if possible an application that will run on both please.

Have a look at "Photoscape" click here which is free, easy to use and has some fairly sophisticated tools.

I'd go with Serif photoplus it has inbuilt tutorials for the tasks you described

Photoscape is the one you want,it does not get much easier than that and a quality little program too.Runs fine on xp and Vista though i did have a small problem in the latest version 3.3 but now sorted.

Im using Photoshop Elements 7,but still go back to Photoscape for my borders and other bits and bobs.

Nobody has mentioned Irfanview yet; worth a look.
