Among 3 Digital Photo Fixes, Adobe's Is No. 1

Yahoo! News - Digital Photography: " - "One of the great things about digital photography is that you don't have to live with your mistakes. If you turned somebody's eyes red with your camera's flash, you can fix that goof with the right program. Better yet, that same software can organize your shots, share them online and even weave them together in slide shows.

One of the bad things about digital photography, though, is the quality of the programs that perform those tasks. Many of them perplex users with an overload of features and commands, while some try too hard to keep things simple. Adobe's Photoshop Elements 3.0 (Win 2000 or newer, $100; Mac OS X (news - web sites) 10.2.8 or newer, $90), Microsoft's Digital Image Suite 10 (Win 98 or newer, $129), and Jasc Paint Shop Pro 9 (Win 98 SE or newer, $129 box or $119 download) strive to land between those extremes."
