Since I got my new camera I am a photo taking fool.

After I edit them slightly, mainly cropping unwanted portions and small color adjustments I will be putting up some of my photos to see what you all think.

My question is what photo manipulation program do you use and WHY?

Pleas post a response as well as answering the poll...

Thanks!

Paintshop Pro X which isn't in the poll options as it's extremely easy to use

If you're doing basic photo-related stuff like cropping, color correction, red-eye removal etc, you should try out Picasa. It's free, and it'll also help you to manage large collections of pictures better.

With an old Minolta Dimage A1, a load of xxx.mrw files of ancient potsherds, I have Photoshop, XnView, and have just added Picasa from earlier post. This way I can produce xxx.jpgs for ease of distribution to fellow idiots, all wanting to see some several hundred of these potsherds. These cover around 3,000 years of farming a 40 acre field just down the road. With maps, aerial photos, distribution diagrams, the potsherds, the need for macro images of some, I need all the help I can get, hence the varied options.

As I type, Picasa is doing it's thing, cataloguing around 50Gb of images - Yo!
and still plodding on 30 minutes later.

That's typically what I use for minor edits.

"PhotoShop CS (Legit Copy)"

I find that option funny. It's okay if every other program on the options isn't legit? 0_o

Btw, I voted for PS for the basic stuff, although something like Picasa or Paint.NET is more useful for that. I just don't do enough "basic editing" to justify installing either of those.

I resent that, I am.

It's as powerful as Photoshop (full version) and open source freeware.

Photoshop, simply because I've used it for a long time and I'm used to it :)

iPhoto/Picasa for basic touch-ups etc. Gimp/Gimpshop for manipulation :)

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there https://tinyurl.com/ycpxl
