something less that photoshop and better than fotor

Hi there!

My wife and I recently bought a Windows 8 pc and we are adjusting and i'm really not into redoing the whole photoshop thing again.

We have a older camera that doesn't really handle exposure and contrast very well and on our older computer I had a very old version of Photoshop that I used to correct exposure. I'm looking for something that will get the job done for me on our new PC.

Suggestions?
