"I'm not a Windows user so can't suggest an application (Photoshop will do it, but possibly a bit OTT) but googling will bring up plenty of editors/viewers."
After reading Customer Views of iPhoto on:
maybe I am wasting my time trying to cope with a duff software package [iPhoto'11]?
Apart from Photoshop, which seems an expensive package for professionals, what photo software packages do users find good?
It would help if they could cope with sending photos with text to PC Windows users.
And ideally it should be easy to transfer 2000 existing pix from iPhoto to the new package, without a lot of messing around.
