Well for some things I take the low tech approach. Sine the Fujifilm software I had for my bridge camera went stupid I used Windows (yes the dreaded MS Ken !)Photo Viewer. I found by accident that if I email the photo to myself it resizes the photo down to a perfect size for posting here. I just save the photos to a folder and upload from there. Sometimes low tech is the best :tu:

:lol: It all depends on what you use it for mate. PCs are a lot more customizable and have a wider range of uses. I rode the apple bandwagon for a while, but I'm back with PC and Android now.

Hi,

Just offering an alternative to the above photo editing programs. I use photoscape which is a very user friendly program for Mac's or PC's. It's free to download and there's no risk of viruses and the like. The next best thing to expensive programs like Adobe photoshop.

cheers
