certain countries while not in others. You should know

simple tasks, such as converting graphics files, creating
slide shows and so on.
Gimp. This is rather a quirky, but

Tutorials. 11 free tutorials (text and
video) on using The Gimp software. Very helpful stuff :-)
There are another 25 free Gimp
Tutorial Videos here. These show how to create
some stunning effects with The Gimp - although you have to
download these, rather than watch them online.
PIXresizer, a neat, free bit
of software which lets you resize single or multimple images
and save the output in a variety of graphics formats. You
can also do a few other things with existing images.
Microsoft Pro Photo
Tools. A freebie (!) from Microsoft

your photos, view and edit metadata, and more, leveraging
