I am about as angry as I've ever been in my 64 years on the planet and I am in tears. I am a stickler on non-intrusive, useful programs on my computer and it's been a joke among my techie friends on my obsession with keeping my computer free of intrusive programs. That said, I got a huge mental hot foot today when I went to Picasa today having forgotten why I no longer use it and before i knew it, an enormously huge -- over 100 MB of crap -- being mined and I stopped it and uninstalled it so fast, it would make your head spin. I tried a couple free photo editors I found as well and they didn't work worth a damn. I liked the free edition of Photoshop and used it for
years -- it worked nicely and was not intrusive at all. I also tried other editors/sites and they didn't/couldn't/wouldn't do what was needed. I'm also disappointed in my camera as I've ever been. It didn't do a very good job either or maybe it was the photographer or the nasty little kids who kept jostling me. Sigh. It doesn't really matter because it made what was already a bad day worse. I give up.
