Hi girls and guys,

Just wondered what you thought the best software for a beginner would be.

I'm talking the overall package, price, features etc.

Well it's definitely free software for image manipulation, how good it is I have no idea unfortunately, I suspect better than MS Paint.

Have a read on their website, download, install and let us know.

Just to add that Photoshop Elements is very good for the money and has alot of the oomph of it's big brother..I use it and I only miss the odd thing here and there...

Photoshop Elements goes for (v9) £53 from Amazon. Photoshop CS5 goes for £600!
