Question
Hi,

I am looking for a cheaper alternative to adobe photoshop. I want to avoid one where one needs to add lots of additional plugins, as the download instructions seem always so heinously complicated - I also want one that can do RAW format photos for my TG-4 camera, if necessary, and one that does not require monthly payments and can be paid for in one go. Can you recommend such a phot-editing software? Thanks!

Answer
Geoffrey, have you considered Adobe Photoshop Elements? http://amzn.to/2b2v4Jb That is my number one recommendation as I also find the monthly payments scheme offensive.

There is also a great program called PaintShop Pro (PC only): http://amzn.to/2b4MtkF
