I’m really fairly proficient with software. I’ve been using the free Dell version of image software that came with our PC. I also have the free version of Arcsoft that came with one of our Canon cameras. So far all I’ve done is simple stuff like cropping and removing red-eye and they are OK for that.
I want to get a little bit more aggressive in cleaning up photos and masking backgrounds and combining images and they just don’t cut the mustard.
What software would you recommend? I’d like to keep it under $100. but I also want something that is intuitive to use and doesn’t require 6 months of classroom instruction.
