Hey fellow photographers,

Right now I'm using my basic editing software that came with my Dell laptop to do my photo editing, but I'm starting to need more.
So, I was wounding if anybody knew of a good and inexpensive photo editing software that it's good for editing airplane pictures. Just the simple stuff, cropping, sharpening, and coloring.

Well, love to here back from you all,
-Luke

We've been discussing editing software here:
The Best Photo Editing Program? (by CaptainDanieL Feb 21 2008 in Aviation Photography)

For a beginner, I would recommend Photoshop Elements. Not too difficult to learn, very powerful, and if you want to graduate to the full Photoshop, it will be a natural move.

 checkmark  And I'll add that you can likely find it for well under $100.

I saying that you should do this but if you good with torrents you can find different editing software on-line. Or you can go the honest route (the proper route) and purchase Elements and upgrade to something like CS3. Sometimes depending on the level of Camera you buy, you will also get editing software like Elements.

For what it's worth, CNET published some information about "free" Photoshop alternatives. Might be worth a try, for that price!

It's probably the most popular in the price range. Some folks used to love Corel PhotoPaint and others loved Jasc's PaintShop, but I'm not sure how much those are out there today.

If you go with an Adobe product (Elements or the full Photoshop) it will be a lot easier to learn as there are tons of books, web-tutorials and users out there to help you along.

i use the GIMP.

its a GNU based photo editor that essentially stays a few versions behind photoshop.

it is free, and is very powerful.

 checkmark  I use the GIMP too. It's definitely the best value for money... as it's free.  Wink I've edited all pix (only 53) I have on the site with it and I'm very happy with it. I mainly use Linux and it runs fine on it (in fact, I think the it runs a bit better under Linux than under Windows). Give it a try, it won't cost you anything.
