    If you really need PS features that do not exist in PSP, then you should be able to afford PS ;-)
    Yeah... Jasc PaintShop Pro is not bad too... It goes for ~$269 the last time I checked.

    i've tried other photo editing software. The biggest hiccup, really, is that almost all the tutorials and digital-how-to's on the web are done in Adobe Photoshop. You may be already skilled in other pic-editing s/w, but to tap on the wealth of info out there, you still need to understand Photoshop, even if it's not your main workhorse.

    I think Gimp works well for me . It has unsharp masks, layers... Mostly everything you have in Photoshop. Also, the National Library also has a guidebook on Gimp.

    Gimp is all you need for photo editing.

    And best of all, it's FREE software.
