    I'm sure this has been asked a thousand times, so I appologize in advance, but I'm new to this forum and couldn't find anything with the search function. Right now I'm using the PhotoImpression Cannon utility software that came with my camera. Is photoshop the way to go?

    yep... Photoshop rules when it comes to digital manipulation.

    And keep in mind that it is illegal to download software from such programs like Kazaa, eDonkey or eMule...

    Even though it's easy, fast and readily available. :) You must always get the licenced copy :D

    Thanks DocFrank I'll be sure not to use Kazaa even though it's apparently fast and easy :D . Thanks

    You can get an LE version of P'shop - usually free with scanners and such. Just as good as the full version, it doesn't have all the pro bells and whistles - you'll never use them anyway.

    Photoshop Elements is the "light" version of Photoshop. It's a great program. It has most of the same functionality as it's bigger brother...and it's a little more user friendly.

    I use Photoshop CS. It's a powerful tool and I'm sure I don't even know a 1/10 of what it can do :)

    I am old school. I use pshop 5.5, it delivers the basic goods you need for a good digital photograph, i have v. 6 and 7 and used them... but i still ended up going to 5.5 .

    There is a pretty steep learning curve, you can get the basics down easily but it is a vast program. I just recently discovered the wonders of batch processing photos in pshop- tis a glorious thing ;)

    I'd recommend Photoshop Elements. I bought it from Walmart for $60, and it has done everything I've needed. I think if you're not looking for doing professional photo manipulation it will suit what you need.

    If you want something legal and really good, check out the gimp.

    http://www.gimp.org/downloads/

    If you want a free copy of photoshop, suprnova.org is offering it at the usual rock bottom price of $0. You need a bittorrent client like azureus to download it though:
