For a free program, I have definitely got great use from it. Adobe PhotoShop does this as well, but it costs up the yang.

I saw a biography on 10,000 Maniacs and was searching for it, but could not find it. There was a clip of Natalie Merchant very young. She introduced herself and said something like:
"My name is Natalie Merchant. I am going to be a very famous singer someday. Watch me!"
What I admire about Natalie is not only her beautiful and unique voice, but her natural beauty. She may look plain without make-up and glitter, but she is one of the most beautiful and sexiest women on stage! Adding her intense lyrical and poetic abilities...10,000 Maniacs recruiting her at 17 in the early 80's was their strong point!
