    Any windows (vista) add-ons to add any basic photo editing?

    Cropping in shapes (not just squares)

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

    Framing

    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
    free:

    Picasa from Google

    PhotoFiltre

    PhotoScape

    The GIMP

    Jethro-

    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)
    OS: Win 98/2000/XP/Vista

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

    eg. Photoshop Express
