Picasa, wonderful photo editor
I have been operating Picasa for three or four years and upgraded the program once.... which had some aggravating problems. But, nonetheless, I have purchased two other photo organizing software programs (Picture It and Photo Explosion) and I find Picasa still is above the rest in picture display and organization. I guess it depends on what you are looking for in a photo organization program. The merry-go-round display of your pictures and the ability to just run the slideshow w/music and enjoy them full screen can't be beat. 
Their photo editing ability is a little on the weak side and I tend to use other programs for that as I do a lot of electronic scrapbooking. But if you want easy ability to download your photos into a computer and be able to go back and enjoy them - email them, etc. I would vote for this product any day!

Photo editing: work in B&W

I really want to work in b&w. It is what I always preferred in film. Now that I am almost exclusively digital I want to get back into grayscale. 

The only tools I currently have are PS Elements 3, Nikon Capture and Macromedia Fireworks. None of these seem to have the equivalent tools found in the full Photoshop, which, at this point, I cannot afford. 

Any other options that give really good control for B&W? 
See the sticky at the top, "Black and White Conversions". Also go to the second page and find my post. It lists some ways to get the BW you want using Elements. I highly recommend getting the free Virtural Photographer plugin mentioned. You'll be in BW heaven!!
