free editing programs
She does use a program, I think it's the one that came with her camera. Usually those are very basic. I remember way back in my new to computer days, I bought a cute little jam cam that took smaller pics than most phones today. I was in heaven though. I took very bad pictures, besides it being a pretty dismal camera. I went to the library and went to staples and ended up buying a little program called microsoft picture it! (the exclamation point was theirs). Does anyone else remember that program? I still have it installed on this machine, and still have the disc. I loved that program! I got fairly good at editing with it, and then it was really hard to switch over to photoshop elements. I do have to admit I can do much much more with the photoshop products.
I downloaded gimp this month to take a look at it. It seemed very similar to photoshop, but just different enough where I know I'd have to play a while to get good at it. Since I'm just getting to where I really know what all my tools do and when to use one and not the other, I don't think I'm up for major exploration with other software right now. Unless it were a full version of the latest photoshop. But I do have some friends that are just starting, so I've been looking for free editing software for them. I found an article for 20 free programs for photoshop alternatives. If you don't have a photoshop program, you might want to check some of these out, because that program you got with your camera really is not doing much.
