I love anything that makes my pictures look professional because getting professional/studio is very expensive. We hadn't gone in almost two years, but decided to go to Sears (had to get a matching shot of little man to match his sissy's) and we were disappointed in some of the pictures and the cost was just way too much. We did get some great shots, but it didn't help that the salesperson lied about the cheapest package with the CD. Lesson learned. :|
I've used gimp, a free photo editing software similar to photoshop, to edit my own photos and create collages. My husband purchased photoshop when when he started his Masters Program, so I've been trying to learn photoshop.
