You might also try playing around with Dodge and Burn tools editing tools to work on the hot spots, if your photo program has them.

Thanks for your comments Steve, I don't have Photoshop
PSP7 is Paint Shop Pro not Photo Shop.

Yu can get an evaluation copy from JASC software or usually on PC cover Disks.

It's very easy to learn.

Thanks Rych, yes he keeps me quite busy, I'm a single parent. He is such a blessing, though, despite the fact that I'll be at retirement age by the time he leaves the nest,

Yo Johnny !
nice pic!!
i'd like to know something

what are your prefered settings concerning contrast, saturation and sharpness?

also.. People that I took pictures of complains about the flash.. it seems to be very rough for the eyes, So im wondering .. if I reduce the power of the flash, will this influence the quality of the pic?

I bought the c-4000 like a week ago and im learning to use it now.

thanks a lot

cheers!

I took that pic in 'P' mode, auto wb, iso 100, contrast -4, sharpness +4 , saturation -1 and although I usually use shq, for some reason the camera was set to sq1. Generally, this camera is excellent for portraits, it's when you are shooting a subject that doesn't 'fill the screen' that some of us have had 'focusing' problems 8) ..good luck .
blessings, Johnny

Nice to hear your more content with camera and your nice portrait brings all the oldies out from the shadows.

Thanks Jasm...Steve6, I downloaded the trial version of paint shop pro, but I cannot figure out how to select the cloning tool or make the changes in variables that you suggested. Can you give me step-by-step instructions? Thanks. When I try to use the clone brush on the left toolbar, I end up putting 'warpaint' on her face, no matter which part of her face I select as the starting position, my brushstrokes leave far darker lines...Blessings, Johnny :shock:

I'll try, it's quite difficult to explain:

Goto view and select tool bars. Ensure Tool Palette is checked.
This tool palette will appear down the left side.

Click on the Double paint brush for the clone tool.

A little box will appear, on the brush tab select as I saidin the earlier posts with a round brush.

Increase the size on the monitor to 2:1 or so.

On the keyboard, press the up-arrow and left click on a place on her face which would be suitable for cloning over the glare.

Now put the circle onto the glare area and just left click a few times
in different places.

Remember it takes a lot of patience.

Above all work on a copy - keep the orignal safe.
