      Thank you.

      i downloaded and installed the trial version of Paintshop Pro 18.

      Most times Windows Photo Gallery was all I needed for minor edits.

      For any more serious stuff I used the included products of Fuji and Nikon. 

      When Photo Gallery started jerking me around I learned MS no longer

      supports it.

      I miss that Mickey Mouse program(I hate Photos). 

    • Yeah well I've thought I'd be helpful instructing clients as to the notion of universal connector on all flashes worldwide and it just so happens it is false in a plethora of situations. this is not at all a standard anymore. NOT AT ALL!

       

      So if someone can turn me on with new data, I'd be happy to shoot with my canon 580exii and this cute fujiX100...

       

      Thanks

      I would not recommend GIMP for first time users, as the user interface and features are not particularly easy to use for people who do not understand image editing.

      I would probably suggest software such as "Photoshop Elements" as it is aimed at more inexperienced users who want to do simple (and not so simple) photo editing.  Corel Paint Shop Pro is another alternative.

      Imagine layers like tracing paper placed over your picture.  You can add many layers of tracing paper, and on each one you can make changes to the picture underneath by overlaying the changes on that sheet of tracing paper above your picture. 

      For inexperienced users, I wouldn't bother with layers - it is far easier to simply directly edit your image.

      The benefit of layers comes from being able to change and remove them, stack them on top of each other, go back and edit them later.

    • I have downloaded and am looking at GIMP.

      I'm seeing that like PS it uses the term "layers".

      What exactly does layers mean?
