Photo Editing

I haven't played with my photos in a while so I'm taking a free photo framing class at JessicaSprague.com to ease back in. I've also been lazy about taking photos the last few months of anything other than quilting projects so I'll be looking back through old photos and maybe heading out with the camera some too.

I use Photoshop Elements 7 for my digital editing but also like some of the editing tools in Picasa 3 (it's free) if I'm in a hurry to make a few changes to a photo.

Welcome back! Love the pic of Chesty - he's such a lovely boy. I use Picasa right now and am loving it for the basic stuff that I do. I do love the price too! lol

How timely is this that you should post about Photo Editing! I have a new iMac. New to me coming from a PC, and the link to the classes is perfect! This will be so helpful! Thank you, thank you Mary!

Chesty always makes a good photo subject. He's such a sweet little guy....the image of my grand-dog, Max.

Chesty gave me my first morning smile. The shades of white on white make Chesty look so beautiful, intelligent, and quizative. :-)

Hi Mary,
I came over from Sølvi's blog and was thrilled to see that you also took the photo-editing class! I got hooked and decided to try to join the oh! shoot class - and got in. So now I'm learning more about digital camera use tha I ever belived I could understand.
I loved the editing class, but it steals time away from my sewing if I don't watch the time ;-)
have a nice day!
