    I've been a digital camera user for about 12 years, having owned about 6 cameras over that span. A couple of my earlier ones were Kodak models, and Iinstalled Kodak Eashshare software to my computer, from the disks indludedwith the cameras, and have enjoyed using it to crop, rotate, and otherwiseimprove my shots. In later years,even after I moved on to other camera types (Olympus, for example), I continued to use Easyshare, now & then downloading the latest version from Kodak. A couple of weeks back I bought a newcomputer, one with the Windows 7 operating system, and last night went online to download Easyshare, and was told it is no longer available for download. (I tried one of my old Easyshare disks, for Easyshare Version 8.0, but was told it is incompatible with my new computer.)

    In case anyone knows, is there anything comparable to Easyshare available, either for free download, or for a price?

    There are a flock of freely available photo editors. GIMP is free, cross-
    platform and would certainly do all you've mentioned and more - it would
    probably be overkill, but that would be one possibility.

    Hi,

    I am having good results with Picasa 3 from Google, which is free. It is
    easy to learn how to use it, and you can sharpen, crop, rotate,type
    titles,adjust color balance, contrast, etc., and even do some simple
    retouching.In addition, you can use it for printing images, and for
    sending images by e-mail. It just copies pictures from other sources,
    e.g. the "my pictures" in Windows, so even if you ruin the Picasa copy,
    the original image is still there on your hard drive. In addition, any
    change that you make is instantly visible, and one-click reversible. The
    EXIF data are displayed.

    Regards,

    Mort Linder

    If you have the appropriate version of Windows-7, you can download the
    Windows-XP mode and that may allow you to install the software:

    According to this....

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kodak_EasyShare_Z730

    .....the software is still available but no longer hosted
    by Kodak. There's a download here:

    http://www.majorgeeks.com/Kodak_EasyShare_Software_d5226.html

    (Majorgeeks may look a bit silly when you see their
    layout design, but they're actually one of the few
    trustworthy, dependable software sites left. Many now
    require that you infest your computer with their software
    in order to use their site, then wrap the hosted software
    with adware, spyware and who-knows-what-else.)

    That's a good idea, David.

    Another way is to buy an inexpensive laptop or netbook with XP
    installed and use that for the Kodak software.

    Load it in 'compatability' mode.

    Picasa will be a good place to start.

    Kodak discontinued Easyshare software a few years ago. Anyone who tries to download an updater will not be able to use it as the site has been taken down for it. You could try eBay for a replacement disk, but you'd be better off using something like Irfanview- it has a feature that allows camera to PC transfers, and it's free.
