What editor do you use for pictures?

I WANT photoshop back but I gotta get my old computer working.
i'm wondering if there are any free and safe downloadable photo editing programs that are kind of comparable to photoshop.
I'm leaning towards buying a years subscription to but if i get my computer up in the fall i'll feel bad for spending money on a whole year...

so anyhow what program do you use, is it free, where did you download it (and is it safe to download ie no virus's!)

  • Listen to Octobersmom; she knows what she's talking about winking is 100% free, open-source software that has a dizzying number of downloadable effects available from their help forums.  Chances are that if there's something you used one of the pay programs (Photophos, Paint Shop Pro, etc) to do, you can find it's equivalent for

  • Picnik is a fantastic free site! I always use it for my family photos. You can have the option to get the "premium" version for I think $4 a month which just has a few more editing options or fancy collages

  • I use paint shop pro to edit photos and to do graphic design. I know a lot of people like photoshop, but I think paint shop pro is much better.
