Default First edited E-PL2 photo with PSE 10

Didn't think it came out too bad for a first time user of PSE 10. Would have liked it to be sharper but I'm sure there was some camera movement. Much, much more to learn for sure.

Thanks Greg. Geez, that doesn't give me much time then. I've already been on this earth a heck of a lot longer than I'm going to stay.

....keep at it James, PSE is a good one, looks as if you've a good start, there's a lot of time to get it down pat if you work at it a l'lbit at every chance.

Tullio, I was quite happy with the free Canon Digital Professional software but when I sold all my Canon DSLR gear and bought the E-PL2, the Canon software would not open the Oly RAW files. I would have to convert them to jpeg so that took all the advantages away from shooting RAW. Believe it or not, I found PSE10 (factory packaging) on the internet for 39.95 so I jumped on it. Still haven't played with one tool yet other than making the sky bluer, cropping, and getting my feet wet with ACR. I seriously doubt if I would even use 10% of those tools......at least not for quite a while anyway.

James, I've been using photoshop since '92 and I am still learning tricks and new ways of doing things with images. Its fun and relatively cost free

And the best part is one is not being locked away in the dark with trays and bottles of nasty smelling chemicals and those "wonderful" neutralizing tablets for cibachrome bleach. And who can forget, formaldehyde in the stabilizer of the E-6 process.

Kula Cube, back in the late 60's I did my own black and white and Ectachrome slides, I know all about those nasty smells.
