What all do you need to do with it? I use PhotoShop (got it free), FireWorks (also got it free) and Picasa (freeware). Of those three, I use Picasa on a daily basis. The only time I use PS or FW is when I have to do a lot of manipulation of the photo like adding and removing things. For cropping, hue/saturation/brightness, glow, sharpen, shadow, correcting colors, contrast, darkening/lightening, red eye, etc I use Picasa. No need to pay, Picasa is always free. The expensive programs I use for graphic design stuff and web design. Rarely am I correcting or editing photos in those programs. My boss has been a photographer for 35 years and also switched to Picasa.
