|I have been using Photoshop CS for a number of years. It's pretty complicated. I once bought Photoshop Elements, but because it's a lot easier, and quite a bit different from CS, I rarely use it, even though it is supposedly easier to do certain essential things like correct red eye. Oh well, I guess I'm just used to one thing and having to hunt and peck around for doing what takes me a second in CS was just not working for me.
I would start out with one of the free programs. Personally, Picasa is really easy and user-friendly, and that is free, forever. You can do the basic stuff in there.
For cards, I use Microsoft Home Publishing, which I love, love, love - but it is from 2000 (gasp!) and a pain in the butt because it's hard to convert it into anything that's emailable unless the recipient has Home Publishing. I think it's now called simply Publishing (by MS) or something like that. I am planning to purchase it once I upgrade my pc a bit.
Just as a comment, red eye correction often doesn't work for pet eyes, as their eyes come out green or other weird colors rather than red. There are ways to get around this, but it's a bit too complicated to explain it here.
I think the suggestion to look for tutorials is a great one. YouTube has many...
