   If you are learning digital photography you will want to learn photo editing as well. Most people who are just starting out cant afford very expensive software made for editing images. However, I have found a free software called It is a zipped file and must be unzipped but well worth the effort as it simulates Adobe photoshop. Download here If you dont have an unzip software you can get free software from Secure Zip Express Another great free imaging software called GIMP 2.6.0 can be used like photoshop. This software is suitable for such tasks as photo retouching, image composition, and image authoring. Many people enjoy uploading their own images to the web to share with others or to post samples of their work. If you find that the images you are trying to post are too big (file too large) they may need to be resized. "Webresizer" is also free to use and can come in handy if you do not have a way to resize your images.
   Another great book I have found to be of use for the beginner or well seasoned photographer is shown to the right called "Guide To Great Photography". This is a very useful book and can help you along the way to becoming a better photographer. This book is much more than just a showcase of great images. Inside you will find a wealth of useful tips to help you take better photographs, along with step-by-step guides to advanced photographic techniques. Click on the book's image for more details.
