There is no easy solution . Programs like Photoshop and Paintshop are really the best way to manipulate any image . All the programs that will produce decent results are of a similar level of complexity . I'd recommend starting with beginners tutorials and gradually working your way up to the more technical aspects .
They are technically complex programs , but they are the only way to produce professional results , keep in mind that programs such as this are absolutely loaded with complex , pro-level features that most users will never need to use for standard operations so they are not nearly as scary as they first appear .
Try this site click here for some tutorials , start basic , work your way up and keep in mind that although layers etc. look complex , all you are doing in effect is painting on layers of transparent plastic , Top layer shows up on top etc.
This has always been reasonably simple, version one especially, has been given away by various mags in the past keep looking, they are upto version3 now so V2 as freebie should be getting given away all over the place.
From what you are saying you want to do, e.g. crop, red eye reduction, enlarge/rotate print options etc yes the basic types will let you do this, and without loading a massive software bundle so that you can potentially do lots of things, which you find you never do.
Take it you are wanting good quality home product rather than Professional finishes/capablilities
I understand that Adobe products can be daunting to the first time user, however, click here for a trial version of Adobe Photoshop Album which is "one click away from red-eye..." etc. and it really is!
Also it has some nice options for slideshows.
Not free but one of the best programmes around for basic manipulation
May I make a suggestion ? When you've tried all of these excellent links, decide on a program and then delete the others - I know it's foolish to generalise, but you could avoid heavy clashes/ freeze-ups that way. ( Speaking from bitter experience ! )
