Another Great, Free Photo Editor

Some of us budget money each 2 years to buy an upgrade to PhotoShop (yep, that would be me).

However, there are some shareware, open source, and freeware applications out there that will satisfy the needs of most instructors.

Bring us Paint.Net, which is a very easy to use image editor with many of the same menus and tools as found in PhotoShop. The software is "freeware" as initially developed by an undergraduate student for a course project.

What I really like is the support for layers and layer blending (transparency levels), since this makes the work of retouching photos and graphics much easier.
