Image Editors and Etc.:

If you don't have a decent image editor on your computer, click on the link below for a good free image editing program you can download:


Ulead Phhoto Explorer a free Image Editing and management suite. I haven't used this program so can't evaluate it.  http://www.ulead.com/pex/freeware.htm
Image Optimizer is a  program will really help you speed up the loading of your pictures, it allows you to compress them, if done in moderation you can cut in half the load time, and still have a quality picture.  http://www.xat.com/
Paint Shop Pro is probably my favorite editor. Much more powerful than the free ones above, but frankly the free ones may be all you would really need.  http://www.jasc.com/
Image Optimizing. Free online service, or you can also buy their software. The online version works very well. Really lets you reduce the file size, and speed loading.  http://www.spinwave.com/
