Larry, many thanks for posting these. Interesting effects . I like them.
I am soon(Mar/Apr) buying a new, smaller camera(Edit ). I have only used Capture and CNX so was looking at Lightroom but at the moment everything is being bundled with discounted LR3 and, of course, the manufacturer's software.
So far I cannot find out what will happen with up-dating LR3 to LR4. Since I am probably going for either the Fuji XPro1 or Oly E-M5 I will likely need LR4.
Looks like a good way to start. Funny, I've recommended it to some first time shooters based on others' recommendation but have never really tried it myself Cheers, Tom Edit: This plan could really be upset if Nikon were to announce a D400 in March and money remains tight
Picasa is certainly a capable program. Your examples of PP are excellent. When my students ask me which free editing software they could use, I give them two options: GIMP or Picasa. I tell them that if they like tweaking with software tools and options they may prefer GIMP, but for a good all-round editor with an easy to use interface they might prefer Picasa.
My only reservation with Picasa is not the product itself, but rather the way its owner chooses to ride rough-shod over the public's rights. An example being Google's latest move to combine a whole plethora of diverse product terms and conditions into a central one-size-fits-all take-it-or-leave solution that suits Google, but might not fit what users originally signed up for.
However, this does not detract from the capabilities of Picasa as a product, which you have wonderfully shown.
