For years I used hotdog pro. Really nice. Then a couple of years ago, the company stopped making / improving the product. The site was www.sausage.com.

The product was an easy 9.5 on a scale of 1 to 10.

The founder was a cofounder of sitepoint.

Anyway, a couple of months ago I had a virus and did a low level format and a bunch of things that took away the small, very effective graphics editor that came with hotdog pro (back in release 4 or 5).

I had no backup.

Can someone recommend an inexpensive graphics tool? What tool do you use?
