@whatedsaid aka Edna (see last post) - Thank You Edna!
I thought I'd lean on it and see if it would come up with some help even in its very juvenile state. I wanted a PC client-based photo-editor so tweeted for suggestions. Why it's needed is because teachers in the local schools take photos with their 5 or 10MPx digicams and then can't send them over their slow dial-up connections. Obviously cloud computing tools are out. And few have the desktop tools needed to crop, resize and touch-up. A short while later @ccoffa from my PLN suggested Photofiltre. Sounded perfect but I'd never heard of it. So I searched the edu-tech blogs I subscribe to using Google Reader (all 232 of them now!) and came up with seven hits - all favourable! Great!
