best free photo/picture editor?

something easy, with good features.

one thing, something that actually prints the image the size you make it. ie: say 4.5x8 inches, that it actually prints it that size on the paper... I can't seem to figure out how to do it with paint.net

I like Photoscape, but I'm sure others here have more experience in this area.

Free, online. Pretty much a clone of Photoshop Elements. But when you print, the key is to check the DPI of your image. Make sure it's 300 DPI. You are probably printing an image that is 72 DPI.
