Hi David :) You can try to use GIMP ( the Windows version is avaliable too), It was recomended to me by one of my good friends from Poland, I tried it, like it, & use it very often.
P.S. Sorry for possibe offtopic here ;D :-X

It took me a few days of limited online time (on dial-up) to download this one, but so far I think it was worth it.  Definitely better than the very limited and outdated one I have been using.  And I am very glad I heard about download managers.

I have actually tried the Gimp some time ago and whilst it is undoubtedly powerful, I didn't like the interface, the way it spreads the different function windows all over the place, drove me to near insanity and I don't believe they have changed that.

Well I have had two shots at downloading it using firefox default download, it 'lost server connection' both times once at 15.7MB the second at just over 1MB. I also tried Star Downloader and that to kept loosing the server connection. So it would appear that the server load is too great I wil try again earlier in the day.

Wow, that was a bit of a marathon, 1 hour 50 minutes, I wasn't sure at one point if it would come in under the two hour cut off limit. But, it is done now, time to install it and have a play with it.

Thanks once again Bob.

Your welcome.  :) After all this trouble, I sure hope you find the effort worthwhile.  ;D

I will let you know, haven't even got around to installing it yet, spent a lot of time just getting used to the camera today.

Just for the heck of it I downloaded the Magix program. I threw something together real fast as a Avatar made using just this program. It's the Avatar here shown now with my post. Pretty good program and user friendly. Thanks for the heads up Bob.  ;D

Well I tried to install it after my weekly back-up image, only for the installation to fall at the first hurdle, it wouldn't even execute. I noticed that the icon alongside it in explorer looked like an old DOS application rather than what I would expect for a windows application (nice icon). No matter what I tried, moving to various different folders, giving the run command from a DOS box, I just kept getting a DOS style bad file or command error, etc. I can only assume the downloaded file was corrupt.

So it looks like destiny taking a hand and it isn't meant to be on my system ;D I will give it one last shot, fresh download 23.7MB on dial-up (sigh) sometime in the week before the 24th.
