Robowis,
I'm using a very simple yet poverfull FREE tool available on the internet.
The name is Irfanview (http://www.irfanview.com/) and I recommend you to donwload the 'plugins' too. They are at the same page, you will see a link on the right of that page.
If you spend 60 minutes learning that tool you will see you can do most of any normal people need to do with pictures in a very simple way.
If you need help in a more powerfull tools like Photoshop, or Fireworks let me know I can help you on that too.
Another good picture organization tool is Picasa (http://picasa.google.com/index.html ) it's made by the same good people from google.

Robowis,
both products are slight different. I use both.
I would say this is the order:
from your camera, you will use Picasa to get the pictures and organize it on your computer.
Then you will use Irfanview to Crop and reduze sizes to put your pictures on e-mail or internet (I know, Picasa does it, but on Irfanview you will have more control).
But if you want only one, then in my opinion it would be Picasa.
