G'day Eysha

Another set of good pix from you !!!

You ask how you can pp them - may I take this one below & outline what I've played with - also using Elements

Here's the result:-

Here's what I did:-
In Quick Menu ...
1- cropped lots more in 6" x 4" format to 640pixels wide
2- lightened the shadows by 1/4 [across the slider]
3- sharpened by 1/4 [across the slider]

In Full Menu
4- zoomed to 250%
5- selected the paint brush, smallest line at top of the drop-down list
6- set paint brush to 2 pixels
7- clicked twice into the eye to put a tiny white dot

8- saved the image

I have put the tiny white dot into the eye to lift it a bit - I find that animals with dark eyes - the eyes seem to become 'black holes' so I add this tiny tweak
The sharpness I have done is probably too much - you will be able to get a finer result when using the original image

Hope this helps a bit
Regards, Phil
