Try GIMP.

http://www.gimp.org/

It’s more for image processing than graphics design though.

Photoshop Elements costs $80 and has everything you need if you don’t absolutely need the whole expensive schmear. I like supporting Adobe’s line of reasonably priced products.

paint.net is another good open source program … it’s layer-based and is much simpler than Gimp. You can get it from download.com, that’s what I did, and it works great!

I think what perople are looking for is a free photoshop plug-in that could do the layout work for you (like FotoFusion, PixelCreator, etc…). Something that comes with more flexible templates than booksmart and allows special effects.

Fotofusion is great, but at 300$ for the version that will allow you to make books is pretty steep for an amateur.

PS Elements can do 99% of what a photographer needs to do with photographs, if there’s no need for a high volume workflow, et cetera. I wholeheartedly recommend it. There are lots of tricks that will allow you to work around what at first might appear to be limitations, and there are free plug-ins that restore some other missing features also.

Just for resizing and basic image corrections I realy like the free application from http://www.irfanview.com/

 Just my 2 cents on the topic.

Oh, and many Adobe products (InDesign for example) are free for a 30-day trial. I suppose you could keep borrowing computers for a few months if you were broke and desperate.

I never hear anyone talk about ULead PhotoImpact.  I’ve been using it for years and I love it.  It is very advanced, probably the closest thing to the full-blown Photoshop but much easier to use and costs $89 or less.  Certainly far more powerful than Photoshop Elements.  It is ideal for resizing, editing and animating photos,  plus it is a powerful graphics tool for web pages.  Good luck!
