I have had good results with Corel Photopaint. It comes as part of Corel
Essentials, along with a version of Corel Draw. I think it costs about $80
in the US. I have also used Adobe Photoshop, but it takes a long time to
learn and I can't afford to buy it. Besides, I like the graphics functions
of Corel Draw.
I agree with the previous message that it is not wise to save archives of
photos in a proprietary format, such as Adobe or Corel Photopaint, and that
it is not wise to use lossy formats such as .jpg and .gif. I use .bmp, and I
believe .tif is also a good format. The Kodak PhotoCD format is excellent,
but I'm not sure you can save in it.
