    New to the group and need a little advice. The old camera and the new both
    came with Arcsoft software which I have learned to dislike immensely. I just
    want software that is simple to work and gives good prints and e-mails. I
    don't take many pic's, but when I do take a few I'd like to processes them
    without a lot of fiddle/faddle. I don't need to distort them or make another
    dumbass calendar. New camera is Polaroid PDC 5055. Thanks to those who can
    suggest a good simple software that will work for me.

    Try Adobe Photoshop 5LE. It's pretty simple, opens in a second or so. You
    can do simple adjustments and save under a variety of compressions and
    formats. 5LE is often given free with scanners and the like. Ask your
    friends. If you can't fine 5LE then Elements or Paint Shop Pro could be the
    way to go.
    Adobe doesn't even mention 5LE on their website anymore, so I guess they've
    given it up as a non-profit earner.

    It's easy to find on eBay usually and not too expensive. ($20 and
    under, last I looked)

    You could try Picasa2 - it is available at www.picasa.com Great little
    program - does very basic editing, uploads from camera, and shines at
    sending e-mails. Its also freeware.
    If you need more editing punch, do a Google for photo editing freeware -
    I use both FireGraphic and PhotoFiltre, which I find excellent. My main
    editing program is ACDC 5.0 - guess I like it because I'm really used to it.
