    For us, win users, is it some sort of lightweight, simplen and instagram-like image editor? My gf was looking for something like this on her laptop, do you know if there is something similar for win?

    He's asking for an alternative on Windows.

    I hear people speak of Corel PaintShop, and I know Photoshop Elements is really good but both are quite a bit more than Pixelmator.

    There is always Photoshop Elements
    You might look at Corell
    All Products
    AftershotPro looks interesting
    But your getting up towards $100
    Pixelmator and Acorn are inexpensive solutions

    merosen: Thank you for your advice, I am using photoshop + camera raw, so I wanted something easier for my gf, this seems like a nice application, that acorn mentioned earlier looks good too, and simple as well. It's a pity that win programs aren't that great designed and made for "ordinary" people, if you know what I mean - something that will suit girl with GF3, and she's got GF3 only because it's made in red finish and I said that gf3 is the best option, in red :smile: :smile:
