    Photoshop is a full professional image editor, you can buy it online from Adobe.com for the low price of $609 USD. Prics in SG are probably about the same I'd guess but could be wrong.

    Cheaper alternatives are JASC's excellent Paint Shop Pro (circa 100~130 USD), Photoshop Elements at $100 USD and a couple of half decent freeware editors from around the web.

    As for video editing, Adobe Premiere and Ulead Video Studio are pretty much the standard in excellence for both amateur and professional use.
    Cost is around 500 USD per package.

    Depending on what capabilities do you want in the photo editing software. If you are not planning on getting your hands really dirty and really addicted on photo editing, you might not need Photoshop.

    I found this relatively cheap softeare by ArcSoft call Photo Studio. US$49.99 from their website at :

    Microsoft also has an interesting software called "Digital Image Pro":

    Their capacilities don't come close to PS, especially if you intent to do a lot of manual touch up and manipulations.

    Another good idea could be photoshop elements - comes bundled with most scanners/printers etc and is quite good. Has most of the things a not-so-serious user would want. If you want to buy it - comes for around 100 SGD.. not too bad!

    Right, I forgot about the bundle software.

    I got PS 5.0 LE bundled with my purchase of the Acer silm scanner as well as Nikon CP995.

    That should be good enough for most photo editing tasks.

    Speaking of which, I now have 2 copies of Adobe PhotoShop 5.0 LE. Maybe can conduct some sort of lucky draw and give it away....
