Thread: Photo Editing For The Newbie
09-13-2007, 04:35 AM #1Photo Editing For The Newbie
So I will be purchasing my digital camera within the next three days. Nothing fancy, not even a ton of MP, just enough to take decent shots with. I want to get into photo editing, making my imagers sharper, contrast, brightness, and the like.
I have no real need to purchase Aperature, as I am sure most of the controls and such will be over my head. I'm looking for a user friendly, affordable, photo editing program. Any suggestions?
I have yet to fire up iPhoto btw...

iPhoto has some basic editting features, but nothing fancy. It can also manage your photos as well.
I use Photoshop CS2 for all of my editting, but you can get Photoshop Elements, which is a chopped version of Photoshop for around $100.

I have a s6500fd http://www.dpreview.com/reviews/spec...nepixs6000.asp, it takes really nice photos and is pretty cheap compared to the rest. It isn't a digital slr but is modeled after one so you get to look cool while using it in front of others. One of th main things I liked about t was the manual focus being mechanically linked to a ring, just like a digital slr. Id recommend it.
As for the editing tools, you should use gimp, its free and works great.
