    GIMP has its uses.. but that really better for other things...

    I use a bugged version of Paint Shop Pro 3... I swear I got it off the official JASC site.... but i'm on day 760 of the 30 day trial period....

    I use this image editor HP developed edited for my printer-scanner-copier. Works wonders, but of course it isn't Photoshop or anything.

    My Lexmark printer came with a pretty good photo editor, so I use that.

    I use the one that came with my computer, works pretty good just put in the size you want it and BAM it changes it.

    I'm at work so I don't have my photo editor here. I just used Imaging and Paint to resize this one.

    Paint works for cropping and resizing.

    Various free programs are suitable for editting and modifying, and mostly anything you need to do. If you want something of professional quality you need to go for Photoshop or Paint Shop. I use Photoshop 7 for almost everything image related.

    Personally, for just cropping screenies and the like, I use irfanview . It is free, petite, and very easy to use.

    For animated Gifs, GIFworks (above in DM's post) is pretty good!

    The best thing to do is to cut holes in your monitor with a power saw until the image looks like you want. Don't forget to wear goggles when using power tools!
