Try Jasc painstshop pro, it is far easier to use with all the red eye and colour adjustments etc set out auomatically. I have photoshop 7 but I always go back to Jasc for the ease of use.

is simpler and a lot cheaper. It does most of what the full Photoshop program will do.

Try ACDSee or Arcsoft Photostudio 2000.

Both really easy to use friendly products that can give great results.

I agree with shifty; Paint Shop Pro 7, (now superseded by version 8), is excellent. It will do everything you need, and is very good for fixing "red-eye".

A tutorial for version 7 can be found here:

Quite a good "freebie" is Irfanview

don`t forget to also download the plugins

In another post, Andsome & €dstow recommend a small FREE program for, amongst other things, red eye reduction.

Made by a Kodak company, Ofoto is available from click here

Haven't yet tried it myself so don't know if it is any good!

I'm with shifty and anchor - Paint Shop Pro is the only one I use. I recently bought Paint Shop Pro 7, 10th Anniversary Edition from Game for £39.99. As well as the main programme there is some bonus stuff, such as the Jasc Media Center Plus for organising photos, plus other stuff. Very useful is the inclusion of a proper paper manual (no need to trawl through the online help section!). Their web site address is click here

If you can cope with the GUI, Photosuite is an excellent, easy to use program. It does a very good job very simply but I find the childish (and noisy) interface annoying. Version 5 may have improved, Have a look click here
