    Default Photo editing packages?

    Does anyone know anything about good photo editing packages for a digital camera? I'm thinking of buying a camera soon and I would like to be able to use a photo and image editing package too, I've no knowledge and skills already so a beginner package would be great, although if anyone knows about more advanced ones it'd be welcome too, I like to hear about stuff like this.

    picnik is great...especially for someone just starting out.

    photoshop.com has picnik like apps too.. i think there may be some interactivity with their other apps, if you have them.

    The websites are free.. they're just web apps, similar to any webmail or online games. You just need Flash.

    just get some illegal copy of photoshop cs5 if you arent interested of paying for a photo editing software. its much better than any other program

    picnik is great for something pretty easy/painless. Also it's great for most minor editing you might want to do - such as contrast/exposure, saturation, and cropping/straightening of the image.

    I myself am not one who likes the idea of massively editing images, but since I have recently started shooting in RAW format, I had to get software to work with that and then which coverted to jpeg. So I use Adobe Lightroom now - it obviously opens way more doors for those who are wanting to do more sophisticated image adjustments (i.e. white balance, etc). So it's similar to photoshop in that respect, but still more bare-bones in my understanding... doesn't get as deeply into all of that 'crazy' hdr / tone-mapping stuff.

    But if you're just shooting in jpeg, I don't see much of a need to use anything beyond picnik.
