I've rarely pp'd my pix. This is due mainly to habit (ex Koda 64 user) and ignorance.

Couple the above two traits with general lack of computer literacy and, well...you get the idea.

Revelation!

A chum suggested FirstStone 4.6 as we were dicussing shooting in RAW.

I'm amazed how easy it is to use, even for a half-wit.

Sharpening: ( an utter revalation on its own). Most pix benefit from it.

Crop and heal: Fab. I've spent time making annoying backgound poles, benches and people vanish from my pix.

Straighten: easy peasy.

Cropping: easy again.

If you're unsure about pp'ing, get this prog. It's free (but I'm going to give them something if they ask). There's probably better , more sophisticated progs available, but I'll be sticking with this one.

I've got photoshop, but can't work it. Maybe one day.....

This is a great intro into pping, and for many, might be all you'll ever need.

FREE.
