    Cropping in shapes (not just squares)

    Special Effects (Sepia, B & W, Speckled, etc)


    Sort of features you find on average mobile phone really

    If you want more than the very basic photo editing found in Windows Photo
    Gallery, you'll need to go to a third-party program. Some suggestions, all

    Picasa from Google



    The GIMP

    The freewware IrfanView has Special Effects
    and is compatible with PhotoShop plug-ins.

    (get the plug-ins too)

    Are you asking about Windows Live Photo Gallery or Vista itself? You are in
    the WLPG forum.

    IrfanView does not have non-rectangular cropping shapes.

    MAGIX Xtreme Photo Designer (masking, layers, filters, limited
    Photoshop plugin support)

  9. You do not actually have to install anything, as there are web based
    applications for basic photo editing now.

    eg. Photoshop Express
