I found the best Image Manipulation Program. It is an open-source project called The GIMP. I used to use Paint Shop Pro for my images, but this is so much better and it is open-source so I can use it on any O/S.
Here is something from their website, check it out:
The GIMP is the GNU Image Manipulation Program. It is a freely distributed piece of software for such tasks as photo retouching, image composition and image authoring. It works on many operating systems, in many languages.
