Photoshop element or cse? Element can do almost everything cse can do, but requires more time and effort.

I was looking at them, with the meercats. a -1/3 may have worked. But I am from the school to make small adjustments at a time. going to -2/3 was a big jump.

You can try doing a EV bracket. With most dslr and evil's you can set to do this. If you know that you are in a bright spot. You can move the bracket to take one at 0 ev, and the other 2 at 1/3 or 2/3 apart. I tend to like to take a bracket at 1/3 apart.

Also you can adjust you metering from evaluative to center weight or spot. Depending on what you are shooting so that you can control the exposure of your main subject.

Perhaps I can help, as I actually teach classes in photo editing for our state university. PSP is a very good editing program, Photoshop Elements is a bit better and more able. Very few folks really can make use of all the features in the CSE series.

Sarah Joyce,

I didn't want to think I was ignoring you help to offer. It's been a busy weekend, my daughter's birthday party was today and tomorrow we are off to Seaworld. I don't have any specific questions on those pictures right now. I've had to put them aside for a bit. I just sat down to look over her birthday pictures.

I would love to take a class in photo editing. Shoot, I'd love to take a class in photography while I'm at it. Maybe after I finish my BS. One more year.

That's usually what I do. If I don't know how to do something, I find a tutorial somewhere that shows me how to do it. That is how I learned Bryce.

Yeah, it just save time going on youtube and the net for info. I find that I am to busy allot of time to take a class when I got the new apple aperture 3, though the apple stores have free classes. I just do not have the time to go. So the online video class and youtube helps out allot.
