    There's no freeware of Photoshop .. You have to buy it.
    The next best freeware Advanced Image Editor is Gimp
    Adobe Photoshop Elements will give you about 90% of the image editing tools found in Photoshop for about 10% of the price.

    Yes. You can get it free for a 30 day trial and see if your PC can handle it. I believe this applies to all of the edit programs: Elements, CS4 and Lightroom.

    I'd go with Elements. I used to run it on a Pentium 4. Oh heck, I used to run Photoshop 6 on an AMD K7 back in the 90's. Now I have a six core AMD, I don't know how I managed when it took 60 seconds for an image to load up....

    I still run CS4 on a Pentium 4.... 2 gig corsair ram / XP Pro that I homebuilt years ago... still very fast, but I will say it's still squeky clean and pretty much devoted to PS.
