I got a new computer some time ago. It has really, really basic software. Like, the only picture editing I can do is in Paint. To upgrade Paint, I've learned will cost me about $80. Or, I can buy PhotoShop or whatever.
I can still use the old computer but it requires a trip up and down the basement stairs. So, I can carry a flash drive down and do that. There isn't much to my photo editing I can do down there but, at least, it isn't just crop or spraypaint!!
My Photobucket account doesn't offer much in editing. There are some "cute" things I can do but mostly, what I want to do is correct exposure and tamper with the color. (I've got to be careful with that since I don't have very good color vision. . . always miss a picture or 2 on the driver's test ;o).
I opened a Picasa account so that I can edit in Picnik. It has everything my old computer's program has. So, I can do editing online, download the picture back to my computer, and/or link here.
As an example of that, here's a van Gogh painting. When I originally "swiped" this off the web, I was extremely disappointed how muddy the colors were. Even tho' that stream may be a bit muddy and the roofs brown, I couldn't believe that it was painted the way I got it! So, I changed it (I hope Vincent would be okay with that):
