I normally use Microsoft Picture Manager for cropping and resizing and enhancing photograph.. It came in a bundle with Microsoft5 Office 2007. I have it set up on 2 computers that I use. I want to install it on a third desktop, with Windows 8 OS. My query: Can I purchase Microsoft Picture Manager on its own, without purchasing Microsoft Office. Is there a free version available. Is there any other good free or low-priced photo editing program you might recommend to work with Windows 8.
