    If you cant afford Photoshop? (like CS3) what is the next best thing? I have been using Photoshop Elements 30-day trial, but its about to expire.

    Im looking for something under $100. There is no way in hates I could spend hundreds on CS3...lol! I just dont have that kind of cash on hand!

    I got my current version a while back from Amazon. The listed price was US$89 but Adobe had a US$50 rebate (because I owned a prior version) AND Amazon had a US$40 rebate. I made a US$1 profit to take the software off their hands!

    GIMP is great for windows users. Macs... not so much.

    You're not a Nikon shooter, but I use combo of Nikon's CaptureNX and Elements. CaptureNX for my RAW processing and the usual white balance, exposure, levels, and sharpening, and then Elements for the creative stuff.
