Thanks

Do you have an application called "Paint"? Search your computer for it.

Hi, Michelle, if you want simple i use camedia master which came with my camera-it is simple and graphic if you are not too hot with these things..dont know if you can buy it but im sure there must be some spares floating around-i possibly have one-would have to look..

Awesome FREE Gnu Image Manipulation Program

If you get totally stuck, you can e-mail me them and I will crop and e-mail back - as long as they are not rude ha ha

dunno why but i cant use paint-or roxio!
you can also make calenders and postcards etc with camedia

what OS do you use?
if Windows, there is always Paint
(in vista the picture viewer can do simple tasks such as crop or resize, click on the pic, on the middle-up part of the monitor thereis an option "Fix"
if you have Office, there is Microsoft Office Picture Manager (In vista again click on the pic, on the middle-up part of the monitor thereis an option "Open" theres in option to pen with Office pic manager)

if you want a free, lite and easy download irfanview: irfanview.com/

just install google picasa2. its a great picture organiser with lots of editing tools incl crop.

picasa.google.com/

Picasa by Google is a pretty good programme for all the basics of imaging.
All free and user friendly and IMO a good place to start.

Have a look here: picasa.google.com/ind…tml

I'll second that, it's lightweight, easy, free and particularly useful for batch jobs (e.g. if you want to resize, crop, rename, convert etc. a batch of images the same way)
