lol. I didn't mean Curves. I meant Bugs's reference to the Gimp software.saintly said:no not really, but then i've allways had hi spec pc's. it tends to be filters etc that sap your processor power.when you apply the effect(i dont use them that often) it takes an eternity to process, but with modern processors it shouldnt be a problem. i run a intel quad core q6600 @2.3ghz overclocked to 3.1ghz with an added heat sink. it'll process ANYTHING including my electricity bill mac are better than pc too.
its pretty easy to use too, rather than explain it check this out http://www.cambridgeincolour.com/tutori ... curves.htm

Downloaded it already. Only 17Mb. Looks pretty powerful. Curves work well... Thanks mate.bugs said:It's free - always a bonus.
I use to run it on a 1.4ghz, 512mb RAM PC without any problems (currently running on some monster of a laptop (or rather "desktop replacement"), the specs for which I cannot remember). User friendly... I think so. Like any software, depends what you want to do and getting used to the features you use the most.
I have a tablet PC and they are the business for photo editing, you don't realise how clunky a mouse is until you can draw on your screen combine it with CS3 and I should be able to do anything, now I've just got to find the time to practice... oh and get a camera that works (currently mine has no batteries, the charger died, I'm waiting on a new one but at the end of the day it's still a basic point and shoot)bugs said:Wacom tablet is a nice addition for image editing...
