Woulda like a free Photo Editing software (My new computer didnt come with it!? Huh?)

I finally bought my first laptop. Being a Park Ranger, I figured it was time! I wanted to wait till black Friday but my boss (former computer programmer) convinced to just buy now so I got a 500 GB Toshiba Satellite at Best Buy for $280. I wanted something basic for music and pictures. Im no gamer and don't really do anything on a computer besides emails, dvdtalk, and such.

However, I expected some kind of photo editing software on this thing!! Does anyone know something good and free? All I really want is to be able to crop, brighten, darken, make black & white, etc, my photos! If it helps I have shitty windows 8 on this thing. Blech... Any recommendations would really help. Thanks guys!

Picasa 3, or for something quite a bit more advanced, Gimp.

XnView is free and includes a basic editor. I am not sure what all it can do because I have Photoshop and also ACDSee and use those 2 programs for editing. You could Google XnView and read the information on their website.

It's pretty decent photo management software too!

I've been using it for years since I first saw it recommended on this forum.
