At the moment i´m thinking of buying a new editing program because i´m not enterely happy with Paint Shop Pro 7.
Which do you recommend me?

I'd suggest you take a look at photofiltre. It offers a lot of features for editing. It might not have everything you are looking for but worth a look, especially as it's just a €25 shareware program.

Of course, if you want to go more mainstream, I'd look at Corel Photopaint or the Adobe products.
I still use Photopaint 8 and it does more than I'll ever need.
That goes for Adobe Elements to, I have Version 2 (was free with a printer) and does a lot.

Other alternatives would include Gimp of course. Another free program.

Good luck in your choice.

I have photofiltre on a CD, will try it now but from the few minutes I took to explore it, it didn´t seem to me much more better then PSP 7. But I will see, thank you for your answer!


---> Try

Now that I tried photofiltre, I must admit that in many cases it is more elaborated but in some PSP 7 is better. Hmm, I will see and inform myself about the other programs more, and maybe someday buy one. Thank you

I would recomend photoshop CS2.
Here's some examples of what a little 18 year old girl can do with a photohop elements program (wich isent half as good as the CS2 one)

GIMP is certainly worth trying. It gives the feel of PS. I use it for quite some years now and am still very content with it.

http://www.gimp.org/

It's an open source program that is widely used in the Linux world but is also available in a Windows version. Good quality software I would say.

Adobe Photoshop CS2 and Paint Shop Pro 9.0 are the best; and GIMP for simple and quick manipulations!

I mean that the pay release of photofiltre, photofiltre studio (Release 9 now) plus a lot of adobe free filters (such as the *.8bf on 8bf.net) covers the most of the purposes you ´ll ever need.
And it can allready import Raw.
Better as some expansiver programs.

Besides the GIMP which is what I have and love, are there any other good free programs out there, until I can afford Photoshop? thanks

Save your money and try out the following: -

photofiltre - excellent

the gimp - the windows version is not as good as the linux

photo! editor (not a misprint) - excellent for quick fixes

I used a combination of all three until my wife bought me Photoshop CS3 extended. Lucky me! ;~D

Kindest regards,
John.

All the programs which I suggested are FREE! If the one that you are using gives you a trial period then it is NOT one of the ones I suggested. Here's where to find them: -
