I am sure that you will get lots of opinions on this; everyone has their favourites.

For me, it has to be Paint Shop Pro. I have been involved in digital photography for a few years, and have tried quite a few programmes. All have their pros and cons, but Paint Shop Pro combines almost everything you will ever need, and in an easy to use form.

Yup, PSP for me also.

PhotoImpact is good and powerful.

I like Adobe Photoshop7

It has all you will need

Yep, I go for Paint Shop Pro as well.

Hitch-Hiker, Adobe Photoshop 7 is about £580, slightly above the budget?

If you're paying my vote is Paint Shop pro, but there are very good free alternatives :-

I use Photoshop 7; Paint Shop Pro 8 and PhotoImpact 8.

Photoshop costs megabucks.

From the other two it's no contest. Paint Shop Pro 8 is the best you'll ever see.

Adobe do a cut price version of Photoshop, called Photoshop Elements, costing about £60 - it's good, probably more than you'll ever need.

Elements!!! Tried this a while back out of curiosity. Got a copy with a scanner. Immediately uninstalled it and threw the disc away. That's my opinion of it. Lacks far too many features that PSP takes for granted.

It may be ok for beginners, but you said you wanted quality. Photoshop this ain't.
