Dear CNET members,
Not too long ago, most of us were stuck with the photos we snapped. Without a darkroom or professional tools, we just had to accept that Aunt Mary had red eyes. What about the guy nobody knew who was standing next to the family in the vacation shot? He had to stay in, and you had to say, "We don't know who he is," every time somebody went through the family photo album. Nowadays, when it comes to fixing our favorite photos, we have an abundance of tools to pick from. But choosing the right image-editing software isn't as simple as Windows vs. Mac--everybody seems to have a favorite. So what software do you depend on to give Aunt Mary her baby blues again? Or even to make a person vanish? Tell us about it in our recent Point and Shout discussion, "What are your favorite photo and video software programs?"
This week's hot topic:
What graphics software is your favorite?
In a recent Point and Shout discussion, we asked what software you use to manage and create your photos and video.
Power at a better price
CNET member hamachiman has been a longtime Photoshop user at work but was hesitant to buy the full package for home projects. Instead, he went with Photoshop Elements and is happy with all the features the software has to offer.

Looks good on paper
CNET member GlynnD's digital camera came bundled with a copy of Ulead Photo Express 3 that he's continued to use. His favorite feature is the software's ability to easily print photos anywhere on a page. That way, he can save money by printing multiple pictures on the same piece of photo paper.

With several graphics tools at the ready, CNET member Peter0423 has plenty of options. He uses different tools for different jobs, but most importantly, all the software he uses is absolutely free.
