Very nice little article. But, what if someone does not have Photoshop?

Yeah then you will not get any smarter from this article (sorry) but I took one of the most generic programs in use these days.. But everybody who want to make an add-on to this article about another program please feel free to do so

Ken, the true Photoshop is very expensive (like $1300 CDN), but you can download it for 30 days at the Adobe website. They also sell Photoshop Elements for less ($150 CDN) which, obviously doesn't include as much. I can't remember if you can save for the web and all that with it. Conversely, another company makes a program called Paint Shop that sells for the same price as Photoshop Elements, but has more stuff. It's a little hard to get used to if you have used Photoshop a lot, but Paint Shop works very well, so you might want to look into that.

Has anyone use Adobe's Photoshop Elements 2.0? I assume this is very much like the Photoshop Lite product they use to offer. I imagine it has many of the basic photo editing features the full program has.

Here is more info:

I did not want my comment to sound off, I was just wondering what a Joe would do if they did not have PS.
Yes, you are correct that Adobe's can be downloaded and used for 30 days as a trial run.
I have and use both Adobe Photoshop 6.0 w/Image Ready 3.0 and Jasc's Paint Shop Pro 7 w/Animation Shop 3 . I would be lost w/o em.

It was still a good question, Ken. And now others know what else is out there.

Hey all...Follow this link for a free photo editor. It's free and has a lot of the features that are needed to modify scanned or digitized images.

For the download you'll need to enter in an E-mail address (you'll be sent a registration key) and personal information, but it doesn't need to be accurate for the download. I use a bogus Hotmail account for stuff like this. Good program with no spyware.

I've been using Photoshop for a few years and I never thought of converting my uploaded images to GIFs #:-) Very nice article Robert!

I compress my photos as far as I dare to within MicroSoft Image Composer, and I create my .GIF images with a combination of Image Composer and Adobe Illustrator. I do seem to have better luck with GIFs in Adobe Illustrator.

You should be able to resize your images in just about any photo editing program. Look through the menu options for "Resize" There should be a dialogue box with the option dictate horizontal and vertical size.
