What are everyone's opinions on the best photo software? From Photoshop on down?
I am looking for something that could burn and dodge, lighten, darken, adjust color, etc. All the things you would normally be able to do in the darkroom to perfect a print. I doubt if I would use fancy features like effects or piecing together photos so I'm not eager to just buy Photoshop. Currently I use a couple of programs that came with scanners and digital cameras, but they just do the very basics. What do you all use?
