Any good photo programs?

Dose anybody know of any good FREE photo programs such as Photobucket, Photoshop, etc? Those aren't free but you catch my drift..Thanks!

Morning Sunny,

Yes there are allot of programs out there however some of the best ones I have seen are

1:GIMP (GIMP - Feature Overview)

2: Picasa (Picasa 3: Free download from Google)

Both are open source (free) programs.

Hope this helps

Regards

If you want something free that is just as good as Photoshop, GIMP is the way to go.

I recommend PhotoFiltre. You can do all basic things with it and it's enough for laymen. I use it and feel it's easy & qualified enough.

You can check it (and some kind of review of it) here: PhotoFiltre - Download

Että koskaan en ole yksin, varjo seuraa onneain.
Vaikka myrsky hetkeksi tyyntyykin, varjo seuraa onneain.
Ja pian taas uusin hönkäyksin, varjo seuraa onneain.
Hei tuu mun luo, pieneksi hetkeksi. Puhutaan, varjoni, valkoiseksi enkeliksi."

Flickr has the best quality photo uploads that I've found. You get 200 downloads, but after that, it's $25 a year (well worth it).
As for editing, Paint.Net

Just thought I'd throw this out there to tell everybody features I want/need, etc.
1) Carve out focused object and put in different scenes.
2) Special effects like mist, cool letters, etc.
3) Different 'stickers' like birds (not cartoon), realistic stuff.
4) Free!
--Thanks--

How is GIMP downloaded? Which link?
