If you are planning to buy a photo editing software and want to know the suitable specifications of a computer for this job, that would depend on the application you will be using. Since you want a software that’s best for editing images, you can try Adobe Photoshop Creative Suite 6. It supports Windows XP Service Pack 3 and Windows 7 Service Pack 1 including Windows 8.x.

It requires Intel Pentium 4 or equivalent AMD Athlon 64 or faster processor, 1 GB RAM, 1 GB free space, 1024 x 768 minimum screen resolution, and video card with 512 MB video RAM and OpenGL 2.0 support. If you want a much newer application, you can try Adobe Photoshop CC. The latest version at the moment is Adobe Photoshop CC 2015.x.

It supports Windows 7 Service Pack 1, Windows 8.1, and Windows 10. It requires 2 GHz Intel Core 2 or equivalent AMD Athlon 64 or faster processor, 2 GB RAM, 2.6 GB free space, 1024 x 768 minimum screen resolution, and video card with 512 MB video RAM and OpenGL 2.0 support.

Adobe Photoshop CS6 is a standalone application that you can buy for a one-time fee for the license while Adobe Photoshop CC is subscription based. For more information on Adobe Photoshop CC, go to Adobe Creative Cloud.
