I need some help please. I want to know the best way to store and edit photo's on my laptop.
I presently plug my Canon Eos 550D into my laptop and up comes the camera software which is pretty naff. My photos are then shown in boxes for me to select which ones to download. It then downloads direct to windows 'My Pictures' and creates a new file. I can't edit properly in windows so I then open up Picassa. So I now have three places that are storing my photo's (Canon software, My pictures and Picassa). Of course then to post a photo on a forum or website etc I need to create a new size and thumbnail which means I've had to create an account with imageshack (as recommended on here!), post my photo on there and get the HTML code etc. I don't like imageshack so I've gone to Flickr aarrgghh!!
Basically what is the simplest, easiest, free-ist way to edit and store photo's?
