Problem with most basic image editing programs like MS Paint is that they can end up ruining image quality, while saving image. So make sure to do a test and then compare image quality, before finalizing it.

I can vouch for Paint.NET as quite good freeware image editing software. Used it quite a bit in the past.

You can also consider using Picasa, its more user friendly I suppose.

Picasa is no longer in development and has been discontinued. It has to be downloaded from third-party websites, since Google no longer offers it for download.

It was. It is a pity Google has discontinued development of it and has removed the option to download it as well. Downloading from third-party websites is never safe. Add to that, it won’t support RAW images from newer cameras, which is a bad thing as well.
