Check out this link, in the second post, under the Graphics Design & Editing heading:
Freeware Replacements For Common Commercial Apps

You should be able to find several programs, to try out.
For simple editing I would recommend IrfanView.
For advanced editing I would recommend GIMP.

Let us know what programs you decide on, and I'm sure someone will be able to point you to the appropriate tutorials.

There are many good (and free) applications that you can use to get started. If you are only a casual user, then Picassa and IrfanView are two good applications with which to begin. As you want to do more kinds of things with photos, GIMP is a very good choice.

See the list and member's comments here (second pinned post, under Graphics Design and Editing):


Hope this helps get you started!
