I take quite a few digital photos ... and up until now have used a number of different editing packages to work with them.  Up until now I have been dissapointed by Microsofts previous versions of image manipulation and editing software.  Today i installed Digital Image Pro 10 and was happily surprised.  Obviously not a Photoshop replacement ... but a good basic photo editor.

The funkyest feature is the Smart Erase feature ... deleting unwated objects out of your photos ... like power lines etc...
