    It appears that Microsoft has launched a little program boasting better file management and more filters than photoshop, batch processing and also easier operation (with the possibility of advanced too).

    It's called microsoft digital image 2006 and you can get it na:

    hmmm i haven't downloaded it yet. Do you think you could post a link to the site with info on it, instead of straight to the exe? so i could read a little bit more about it.

    Could be rather exciting, if microsoft do it right and don't make the program too bulky. Adobe's stuff is very bulky and you need a powerful machine to get good results anyway I guess so that doesn't really matter.

    ok I still haven't downloaded it but I did watch their little flash intro on it. And it just looks like a fancy version of Google's Picasa to me. It's got more editing functions than picasa does. And yes it does look easier to use than Photoshop. But that's one of the good things about Photoshop... you can get really intricate and fiddly if you want to.

    This will be a great product for novices to understand the basics of photo editing before they move on to the complex world of PS. But I don't think it's going to be a rival for PS.

    I must admit, I hate the Bridge in PS. It's way tooo big and it just is too bulky to run on my machine. So I use picasa for organising my photos and cataloging them.

    precisely! oraganisng photos is what i want it for, and quick retouching so that a good photo looks better. And not dramatic turnabouts from bad to extremely good like you can do in photoshop but it takes years :D
    and if it beats picasa i'm all for it!

    At first glance I would say ACDsee was a better program and alot cheaper....IMHO

    Yes i agree the original claim about this program being better than PS is false... in some respects. PS will always be the 'editing' choice.

    But for file management, I think that Bridge does a shocking job. It's ridiculousy slow.
