    My wife wants to start doing more than just red-eye reduction etc...
    She is quite computer savy and learns fast.

    What software is powerfull but not overwhelming?

    Thanks!

    Hi,

    I, and I am sure many others, will suggest Photoshop Elements. It can do
    almost everything a photographer needs, and is not all that expensive.
    There are a ton of "how to books" on Elements.

    If she really gets hooked, she can eventually move up to Photoshop, which is
    considered to be the industry standard, and would still recognise the
    screens and ways of working, but that is a VERY expensive program, .

    Photoshop Elements.
    If she ever gets real serious, it's just a hop, skip and a jump to full
    Photoshop.
    Elements is fairly user friendly, but I still recommenr a self help book
    especially the following one:

    You can get a copy of a previous version of PhotoPlus for free at
    www.serif.com.

    Serif products are a lot cheaper than those from Adobe and have a loyal
    following.

    FastStone is a free download and is well worth having available, but may
    be just a little inadequate as a full time editor, as is Irfanview. I
    use it in conjunction with PhotoPlus 9 (not the latest version).

    If you are after the free versions, I don't think Serif advertises them
    on their main site any more. Try:

    Elements has an upgrade path to Photoshop that halves the cost of the
    program.
