Hello again all,
First off, thanks to all the people who’ve taken the time to reply to my previous postings.
You’re good people around these here parts… 😉
Anyhoo, I wanted a nice little photo editing program for my NC10, just for basic editing to use mainly when I’m out of the country etc. Specificially, I’ll mostly be fixing the contrast/brightness/sharpness etc. on pictures, cropping them and getting them ready for eMail or upload.
I’ve been a JASC Paint Shop Pro 9 user for quite some time, so I’m tempted to use that, but I’m wondering if there’s a smaller or simpler image editor you would recommend.
I’m really trying to keep my Sammy fast and neat without loading it up with bloated programs.
Layer support would be nice, or caparable features to PSP9, but I wasn’t sure if there might be a nice little freeware program or something that wont take long to load, take up too much HDD space, spread itself all over the HDD etc.

The freeware Photoscape will do most of what you want (not layers though) http://www.photoscape.org/ps/main/index.phpFebruary 13, 2009 at 8:01 pm #183703

For simple image editing I use IrfanView. It lets you crop, rotate, change colors, resize etcFebruary 13, 2009 at 10:02 pm #183704

Dude, that’s crazy…lol
I can’t believe you can do that much with an online photo-editing program.
Good stuff Sir, thanks much…February 13, 2009 at 10:03 pm #183705

Hi all SammyNetbook fans 😉
I use PhotoFiltre, a lite no-nonsense app that goes very well on Windows Seven.

for basic jobs, I use ImageJ: http://rsbweb.nih.gov/ij/
it’s a common program in my uni (bio), and I got used to it, small, fast, but quite some options.
for other tasks I use the good old photoshopFebruary 17, 2009 at 9:42 am #183700Billy RubinMember

Sounds like Picasa could do a lot of what you want… the changes are non permanent… you can link them up to your email account. crop, color adjust, red eye removal and organize.February 17, 2009 at 11:14 pm #183693TCMuffinMember
I have experience of the Gimp and Picasa and they’re both good bits of software in different ways.
As with most stuff to do with computers, it’s horses for courses. With free software you’ve nothing to lose by trying things out to see which suits you best.February 18, 2009 at 12:17 am #183702Camo YoshiMember
Anybody gonna mention MSPaint? Just kidding. XDFebruary 18, 2009 at 9:40 am #183689
