Dear Forum,

Whether it is free or not, I'm interested in downloading a fairly decent imaging program-or perhaps, more than one- that will allow me, among other things, to increase clarity and sharpness of images as well as the usual editing things provided by Photos in Windows 8.1. However, there is another thing I seek: the ability to rotate images less than 90 degrees without the cropping that goes along with it, and a minimal loss of clarity and sharpness. Thank You.

Here are my specs:

Tech Support Guy System Info Utility version 1.0.0.2
OS Version: Microsoft Windows 8.1, 64 bit
Processor: Intel(R) Core(TM) i5-4440 CPU @ 3.10GHz, Intel64 Family 6 Model 60 Stepping 3

For your basic photo editor the best is of course is Photoshop or Photoshop Elements. I use Elements and Gimp which is free. The only thing I don't know if Gimp can do is partially rotating images but I'm sure you can. For resizing images Smilla Enlarger does an amazing job and it's free.

Since you're not looking for freeware only ... I'd suggest Adobe Elements 13.
It has all the image editing power of Photoshop for about 1/10th the price.
You can tell it how many degrees to rotate or just draw a line you want to be horizontal or vertical.
Once you get started in editing ... You'll keep wanting more, Might as well start learn the best.

Here's some freeware suggestions

Since Windows XP, I've always replaced whatever viewer Microsoft provided with the Image Viewer/Editor freeware Irfanview.
It'll perform all you mentioned ... and I assume it'll still work in W8x or W10.
But for the chores you mentioned .. I think they're easier in Photoshop.
