I just switched over to a DSLR Cannon 450 and I need an easy way to size and print the pics. Also maybe even posting on line. Is there an easy to use program for this?

Size and print? you just print what you shot. You determine the "size" of the file by adjusting the camera's resolution size, and then the "type" of file. For instance shoot the camera set to Medium file size, and basic JPEG. Posting online from photo bucket you set the file size in your preferences. It automatically sets it to 640/480pix. It is funny how that is only 1/3rd MegaPixels. Remember your monitor is only capable of showing about 2MP. cranking up your file size for online posting is just wasting space.
If you are talking about Cropping your pics, your camera probably has that built in the "retouching menu." Or if you want to get fancy Lightroom 5 for your PC or Aperture 3 for your mac is all you'll need if you know how to edit and enhance....

From my photo experience for over 40 yrs shooting, and now with the Hasselblad 503cw/PhaseOne P45+ back, you always want to shoot RAW. Lightroom or Capture One are great editing programs, then exporting to Photoshop for further adjustments; 'spot healing', crop, curves, (if necessary) image size, file type (Tiff, Jpeg), etc.
I guess if you want something light, a simple point and shoot will give you a memorable moment, but if you really are doing anything professional, a great lense, ideally 20 mp @ 6um or larger (if shooting digital) is the minimum I would use (although I still love film !!!). A tripod is a must, as well as a release cable and 'mirror up'capability (although not necessary). Obviously, this is a large and heavy medium format setup, so not for the guy travelling light, but, even if you are shooting 35mm w/ telephoto the tips will still apply.
