Default I need new Digital Photo software

I have been using Nikon's digital software for a few years. I got a new Canon camera and I do not like their software.

I did a search and some old threads suggested Picassa, PhotoShop Elements, AcsSoft PhotoStudio. What are you using and what is the easiest and best for a reasonable price?

Photoshop is very good, I use it everyday. If you own a mac try iPhoto, its free and it can't be beat

GIMP. I've used photoshop and gimp and they do just about the same thing. It does take some learning though. I'm going to use GIMP until I can justify spending 800 on PS or until I can get it free.

what do you want to do with the photos? simple edit or complex adjustments??

simple and good - Picassa3 from Google. Free. When I shoot my son's college games i take hundreds of shots, pick the best, edit and then upload all to "Web Albums" run by Google. Then all parents and players can download what they want. Same drill for family get togethers, then family pick what they want and download.

pro level complex - Photoshop

complex - Photoshop Elements

I like to manipulate colors, enhance, paint, etc.

Can Gimp do it? How hard is Gimp to use? Is anything similar to PS Elements?

Thanks to everyone for suggestions. Keep them coming.

before you buy it I hope you can get a free trial. i tried Photoshop and decided I was more interested in taking pictures then manipulating. I do have Elements and use is sometime. Picassa 3 has become my main edit software.

if gimp and Picassa3 are both free downloads then you have some choices to start.
