    Recommended software?

    http://www.getpaint.net/ was mentioned in an on-line article as a reasonable featured free software tool. Has anyone here used it, and any comments?
    I'm looking for a simple app for my parents to use.

    I dabbled with an earlier version a couple of years ago and was impressed but went back to using paintshop pro the latest version being Paint Shop Photo X2 I think, not sure how easy it would be for your parents to master, but you can find plenty of free or trial version (Paint Shop Pro 7 seems to still be favourite) or plenty of other free photo editing progs. Someone here will provide plenty of links I'm sure.

    I don't know if ANY image (photo) editing software is "really easy" for the less technically inclined, but I'm in both yours and Jeff's camp. My long-time graphic app is Paint Shop Pro (currently still with v. 10) AND I also dabble with Paint.Net, Irfanview and for simple graphic viewing, FastStone Image Viewer which is free for home use. I would certainly try starting them out with Paint.Net.

    Al... Just an off topic addition to your reply, in that I'm a fan of Paint Shop over say Photoshop Elements, and although using PSPX2 now - and yes it has a few more features and so called improvements etc but for everyday basic photo editing the earlier versions do just as good a job (probably less complicated also) and I would go with you that any beginner starts out with the readilly available free image editors you suggest.
