Paint comes free with Windows, but it doesn't support combining images from different files. I'm looking for a free, EASY TO USE (emphasis on easy to use - I don't want to have to spend a month learning this) image manipulation software that will let me combine images, plus do all the regular stuff like cropping resizing, playing with aspect ratios, etc. It should be able to read and write the standard file formats (jpg, gif, png, pdf, doc, etc.). Can anybody help with this? I'm not an artist, so I don't normally use this kind of software, but I guess it's time to Expand My Mind.
