    Hi;

    I'm looking for a software that would allow a dislectic person to edit pictures. She has severe dyslexia, i.e. reading the menus of programs is a big hurdle. Reading help files is not really an option.

    Ideally, all functions should be represented by intuitive icons. The kind of editing she needs to do is quite advanced; she prepares photos for publishing. Has been using Adobe PhotoShop (I think) but finds it very difficult because of the text menus and dialog boxes.

    I have looked at the freeware programs available at Tucows, but none of them seems to be icon-driven.

    A software called TuxPaint has a nice interface but way too few functions, and it cannot read or write jpg files. Or any other proper picture files - it uses its own album and only stores drawings you have made under TuxPaint. No way to edit a photo.

    Thanks in advance for any hints,
    Leszek.
    PS: The platform is MS Windows.

    GIMP is open-source and nearly as powerful as Photoshop (which it aims to match). The interface is a remarkably well thought out... revolution from the Photoshop interface.

    I use the Gimp a lot, and yes it is a very good value for the money it doesn't cost.

    But it is not text-free by any stretch. Unless there's an option I am not aware of, replacing the textual menus by icons.

    Is there?

    Cheers, L.L.
