I have used PICASA for years, It has become unreliable so I am looking for a FREE photo editing program.
Any suggestions? ( I already use Pixler ) but need something that can load images from camersa

If you are using an Apple computer, Photos is the obvious choice.

For Windows, no ideas.

Thanks for your answer Frank.
I have a laptop and have recently downloaded FastStone Image Viewer, also had my geek reload Picasa and Adobe Elements 14. That aught to be enough back up programs for the rest of my life.
It just burns me Google doesn't support Picasa anymore.

I have used the FastStone and it worked well, but I vastly prefer ACDSee which I bought! Had an earlier version on my Windows 98 computer and it still works, but upgraded a year ago. I know you wanted a free one, but I don't see the need to upgrade in the near future at all and over several years, paying for something is worth it. OTOH, I hated Picasa; so YMMV.

Hello,

I am new to this forum ....but I believe I can help

GIMP 2

Is free & open source - Also a great alternative to paid software

Hope that helps ~

I love ACDSee the best and have had it for years. Another one I like is PixLR.

Gimp is so way over complicated !! With no real instructions for it. I tell my students not to go there. Irfanview. Gene
