    Hey I need some suggestion on what people here use for editing photos. I need to find something simple for a friend. Something like camedia not photoshop. What does XoO use for simple photo editing?

    Are we talking simple as in red eye and cropping and that's it? Elements is pretty simple and basic. I like Adobe LightRoom but it's a ways away from simple.

    Yes but dont you think it is a little complicated for someone who barely knows how to attach something to an email? If you think it is simple enough I can give it to them to try out but im not sure.

    gimp is a gnu version of Photoshop, that isn't what he is looking for ;)

    Try PS elements and see if that works, it's a bit more casual friendly.

    paint.net Ive learned to use it without reading anything. also lots of user base made plug-ins for more options as he learns to use the program.

    it has the effects menu for easy editing and as many undo and redo as he needs.
