    Windows used to have a basic photo editing program built in (XP?) that permitted some delightful effects: watercolour, charcoal, pen & ink, etc. FYI, NOT Paint. Several years ago i searched the ms database and found instructions on how to reload the mini program, and have since lost the instructions as well as the the editing program's name. Neither of the current photo editing apps installed provide these effects [MS Digital Image Suite 2006, HP Photosmart Essential 3.5] as well as that mini application.

    Do you recall what the mini program was called, any idea if i can still obtain it?

    Thank you kindly!

    I believe you are referring to the "Microsoft Photo Editor" that was a part of Office 97 through Office XP (2002) - it was replaced by Microsoft Office Picture Manager in Office 2003 - see this Wikipedia article for some background.

    You can do all this with GIMP, the free graphics program, which is a photoshop alternative. It is quite deep, but comprehensive, and you have a number of effects.
