Photoshop Elements are usually the cheapest to buy. Its what I use. CS3 costs a pretty penny.
GIMP is a free program you can download.
Also, you can get a trial for Paint Shop Pro on Corels website, or Photoshop trials on Adobe's website (but they are not available at the moment.)

Yep. Photoshop Elements is what I use. It runs about 90-100 dollars for the new version that just came out.

You can also go to your local Best Buy and get one.

I would suggest you start looking through siggy school. Look through there and the PSE lessons and tutorials. It will help you see the program, and get familiar with it and let you see if this is something you really want to do!
