I have zero knowledge or experience with editing and printing photos, so I'm turning here for some advice.

I have a client who recently upgraded their system and I'm trying to find a comparable program to the one she was using. Keep in mind user level here is VERY low. Think something you could easily teach your grandmother to use. It only needs to really do 2 things. Rotate and Print multiple photos to a page and print the file name and date below each photo.

Does anyone know of something simple that could do these? Thanks for any input.

Google Faststone Image Viewer. It is good free software easy to use.


And also Fastone Image resizer if you want to go down that path.

Good Luck.

Most printers come with their own software these days. The software will rotate and possibly set multiple printing etc.

I second Faststone Image Viewer. I use it all the time to remove red eye and to rotate pictures. I have also taught my teachers how to use this software without issue. Spend about 30 minutes going over a few examples with your client and they will hug your neck before you leave.
