Default Bestest FREE foto editing software??

OK, Ima gots like 800+ pics from recent trip to Mowee Wowee but too cheap (broke) to buy FotoSlop. Other than the boring "crop, redeye fix" snoozer programs, what software do you use to do effects ie. convert to B&W, area specific fixes, etc.?
Don't want some required search bar BS add-on, blah, blah. If this software starts directing me automatically to some save the one-armed pygmy whale donation site, I'll hunt your sorry butt down & pour my wiff's latest yeast infection in your seconday for recommending it!
Hey, I know nothing's free, especially "free" software, but I can hope, can't I?

And you sez.................?

Photo Professional for me.

It came with my Canon but can be downloaded for free (yes, FREE) through Canons website. It does an excellent job of tweaks, red eye correction, color changes, crops, resizes, etc.... At least with the RAW images I use it on.

I have the PS CS2 and never use it honestly. Beteen taking better pictures and the occasional effects tweaks through Photo Pro I have no need for CS2.

Mostly, I just use the software as my light table and batch converter.

GIMP. Free. Near photoshop levels of functionality. Steep learning curve though.

Try this out. IrfanView (exe), from Irfan Skiljan - Free Downloads on ZDNet | Shareware, Trialware, Evaluation Software
I've used IrfanView for other things but it's free and simple.

Best "free" photo editing software. Let me put on my eye patch and peg leg before I discuss "free" software.

If you don't need any of the really fancy bells and whistles, this website might do the trick for you:

Online image editor pixlr free - fix photos direct in your browser

Or you can download paint.net which is also pretty good:

Paint.NET - Free Software for Digital Photo Editing
