    I took photography in highschool, but we never really learned about digital imaging...so I have no idea what photo imaging program to get. I am currently using roxio easy media creator 7 and I also have to software that came with my kodak easyshare (which I haven't really looked at very much). Can anyone recomend some software? One of the main things I want to be able to do and I can't do now is color accenting, so a program that can do that would be awesome.

    Thanks,
    Anna

    welcome to the forums!

    if you are concerned about money...your best best would be to either get photoshop elements or JASC paint shop pro.

    but if money is no object, get photoshop, youll learn to love it, and it will be with you forever.

    good luck!

    Yes i agree, Adobe Photoshop is the best out at the moment in my opinion and the latest CS edition is amazing... Good Luck!

    Just watch the steep learning curve ... I still find myself reaching for the manual to do some basic things after a year, but I agree CS is a great tool.

    Photoshop elements will do more than you think it will. Just play around with it. You'll see!

    I second the GIMP, its very powerful, and because if you try it first and don't like it you aren't out anything.
