    I've had a lot of good luck with Gimp. It's an open source photo editing program compeating with photoshop. It's easy to scan using it (acquire) and you can set up automatic functions (droplets, etc.) just like photoshop. There is a bit of a learning curve at the beginning because they use different phrasing for the functions, but it's free, and constantly updating.

    Not sure about the website, but if you google "Gimp" you'll find it!

    Anyone know of a good free photo editing program download that can retreive pictures from camera or scanner in to it and be able to adjust color, brightness, contrast, sharpness, size etc and then export the picture to a separate folder ?
    I am using Snapshot Express and it is an old Windows 98 program and not designed for XP but in spite of it's shortcomings when using it on XP I am still able to work my way through it. But I would much rather have one that is fully XP capeable so I could navigate it more smoothly.

    Or am I missing the point about irfanview . I did not try downloading it before finding out if anyone here knows if it will or will not perform the functions I am looking for as mentioned above.

    Pete, et al:

    Thanks! I did miss something when reading that web site. I just did not catch any claims the program could create files.

    Still, I think I will stick with my CorelDraw suite and TurboCAD.

    Multipage GIFs are what makes an animated icon

    I have that program and it is real good for resizing your pictures. I use to post pictures here on the forum for thumbnails. It also has a good slide show feature.

    hi Phil

    On another site, (senior moment cant remember where) a few folks said they used it to make outlined drawings for patterns.

    Havnt played with it a lot, but it seemed easy to convert to black and white, make a negative, edit and change most any type picture, has a few filters/ options to turn picture in oil painting, enhance and sharpen picture etc.

    the download and install was easy, if you have a few min try it.

    free is good......pete

    I looked at the web site, but to be honest I must have missed something important. Is it just a graphics viewing program?

    The write up on the product did not offer a reason (argument?) why their claims of importance is important. What am I missing? I haven't seen or dealt with a GIF file in years. Multipage GIF?

    free graphics program

    Came accross this program , looks interesting, and free



    IrfanView is a very fast, small, compact and innovative FREEWARE (for non-commercial use) graphic viewer for Windows 9x/ME/NT/2000/XP/2003

    It is trying to be simple for beginners and powerful for professionals.

    IrfanView is trying to create new and/or interesting features in its own way, unlike some other graphic viewers, which whole "creativity" is based on feature cloning, stealing of ideas and whole dialogs from ACDSee and/or IrfanView! (for example: XnView is stealing/cloning features and whole dialogs from IrfanView, since 5+ years).

    IrfanView was the first Windows graphic viewer WORLDWIDE with Multiple (animated) GIF support.
    One of the first graphic viewers WORLDWIDE with Multipage TIF support.
    The first graphic viewer WORLDWIDE with Multiple ICO support.

    $35 was a great price no matter what. Bruce definitely scored big time. And by the same token, the wife found new homes for her hubby's stuff that she had no use for. I'd rather sell cheap to someone who may actually use them than any other purpose.

    After cleaning the wheel and going through the drawers he found all the attachments/tools that came with the grinder. He priced everything and it was $500 plus. A member was selling the tools tor the wife of a member whose husband died last year. You think SLRA is picky with measuring, you should see...

    Yes, there is a market for the original. I think there are a couple other FL scrollers on this site. There are also a few on the Scrollsaw Village site. I would try scroll saw sites before I attempt Facebook Market Place or Craigslist....
