Which ones have you tried, and which do you think are the best? Are they free or do you pay?
How in depth are you looking to get into it?
Just touching up family pics, or something more intensive?
For my Mac I use GraphicConverter (I believe Mac-only). It's free and very robust.
Photoshop. Used ImageStudio back in the day, but Photoshop blew its doors off -- Adobe poured their profits back into development. There really is no serious competitor.
I like to do some "photoshopping" but only on real amatuer level - not looking to publish anything The reality is it's MOSTLY for fixing a few things here. I used to like Microsoft's Picture It program. But it's old and they have never updated it. I find it frustrating now. I'm using something called photopad which seems kinda easy. I also have GIMP but haven't given it a good try yet. I don't want to waste my time so I figured I'd ask.
Do use a particular version?
I don't go for the "cloud" thing at all, so I'm at CS5.1 where I expect to remain indefinitely... the "cloud" subscription model is just a non-starter for me.
Nothing but Photoshop for the last 20 years. I'm no help at all…
Adobe made Photoshop CS2 a free product a few years ago. They wanted to shut down the activation servers. CS2 was the perfect version of photoshop and runs great on older computers. I am surprised people bother pirating newer versions of photoshop when this one is free.
Adobe Lightroom 5 and Adobe Photoshop Elements 12..if doing a quick phone edit I use Snapseed.
if they look goofy I just erase them
i'm tech savvy
Photoshop and Lightroom CC.
GIMP is free, can be used on windows, MAC, Linux and there's even a portable version (used mainly on USB drives)
If only putzing around, I'd recommend Photoshop Elements for around $80. I'm sure there are some good free ones out there too, I just don't have much experience with them.
This. I love CS2. I can't even think off hand of anything I've really used in the last few years that was not included with CS2.
MS Paint was fairly good with XP, but the current version of it is almost useless.
I learned on cs2 and it is great but cs6 extended is just incredible although most people will never need 75 percent of what it does
Photoshop - the only way to fly.
