I am new here. I do not want to start a whole new thread on this, so if there is one that exists that you could point me to, I would be happy to look for it. I am wanting to take my photography and digital image manipulation to a higher level. Looking for opinions on a good user friendly program to work on my photos. I am not completely novice, but need something that will be fairly easy to jump into, but with more powerful features than say "Picasa" (which is, I must say, quite an amazing little free program!)
Thank you in advance for your direction.
