I use a combination of Lightroom (trial almost expired… sniff sniff) and GIMP. GIMP takes a bit of practice to edit in, but it’s pretty amazing once you know how to use it…posted about 6 years ago
I plan on purchasing Photoshop once I go to school (and probably will be required to get it), but for now I’m content using Corel Paint Shop Pro X2. It’s easy to use and significantly cheaper than Photoshop, though I got it for free.posted about 6 years ago
I use GIMP though I also have Photoshop and Lightroom. GIMP’s kind of similar to Photoshop. :)posted about 6 years ago
Photoshop CS5 and I use picnik.com when I’m not at home, and it has a lot of cool effects (my favorite rounds corners of pictures!)posted about 6 years ago
photoshop + good camera! but mine is photoshop elements so it was under $100!
btw, the clarity doesn’t come from photoshop-it comes with a high quality camera!posted almost 5 years ago
