I am looking for a photo editor. I use WIN XP Home. It seems all the ones I download don't quite match up to what I want. I would like one that:
1. Is simple and easy.
2. Can resize easily.
3. Can change file format.
4. Can rename in batch or individually.
5. I'm not a photo editor, but being able to do some simple editing like Red Eye, a little color enhancing etc would be nice.
6. Is free without spyware.

Anybody have a favorite?
Thanks
Floyd

Here's two that are free that you might try, if you haven't already:


Google's Picasa

and

Irfanview


I know you think you understand what you thought I said,
but I'm not sure you realize that what you heard is not what I meant!

I think IrfanView will do most of what you want. I use it all the time for simple projects. Picasa2 is also very good, especially with photographic effects. Both are free for the downloading, so try them out for a week or two.

I'd also have to go with Irfanview,
It'll do everything you listed, and then some. :thumbsup:

Seeing as to this topic is a few years old, are those recommended sites still the best to use?

Irfanview is a freeware application not a website. I don't use Picassa so I can't comment. Yes Irfanview is still quite an application.

Surprising or not, Windows Live Photo Gallery is easy to use, and can do that.

GIMP doesn't meet the first requirement, in floyd's list of criteria: :thumbsup:

1. Is simple and easy.

Irfanview is still solid, IMO.

I've always wanted to try Picasa but never have...too complacent using Ulead PhotoImpact (which is paid version).
