  2. I'd never heard of "Photo Pos Pro" until you mentioned it, so it's not one
    I aspire to, or appears to have a widespread reutation....

    : Most here probably buy Photo Shop, Aperture, etc., but if you need a
    : good free one, this would fit the bill. It's become pretty powerful
    : recently.

    The page in your link seems to suggest that it's based on Gimp. Historically,
    the word on Gimp has been that it's fairly powerful, but a bear to learn, with
    a proliferation of Unix-like windows for even simple tasks.

    Frankly, I'm fairly happy with Digital Photo Professional. It lacks the bells
    and whistles of Photoshop, but a lot of evidence suggests that Photoshop is
    too easy to overuse, producing garish results that I often don't like.

    You can do garish with any post-processing program, but it's really
    plug-ins like Topaz and HDR that people tend to overuse.
