I think whatever you get it will take a bit of time to find your way around.
If I were you rather than buy more imaging softwareI would invest in a book or buy some photo mags that walk you through various processes. Digital Photo mag do a cd with very good lessons on how to do things in CS. CS 3 is pretty much the best programme out there.
so i just need to learn how to use it properly !
Yep. It maybe a bit daunting at first but spend some time on it and the basics will soon fall into place.
What you need is 123di. It is an e-book, with interactive colour animated tutorials on everything. It leads you through like you're a child, even I learned from it.
great...that will give me a start...
i used to use paint.net
found the full version....its downloading right now....thanks denny
I would go for Lightroom myself.
It works seemlessly with Photoshop but offers so much more for a photographer. Try downloading the beta version of Lightroom2, it's great, what with a superb catalogue system, editing, and simple web modules you can't go wrong. If you do decide to try it, have a look at the tutorials at...
these are some of the best you'll find, including those for Photoshop.
Go for it and enjoy.
great....123 has downloaded - full version...
i'll download lightroom 2 as well....
the more the merrier
123di covers Lightroom, Elements 1,2,3,4,5,6, Photoshop 7, to CS3, and all the Nikon editing and RAW conversion programs. Just minimize it to your acessory bar when you're working, and you have instant info available for any of them.
I might as well give Lightzone another plug. If only they had the marketing power that Adobe have.
getting confused now guys....too many options...
If you're just starting with Adobe, try Elements 6.0. It will give you an excellent intro. You probably will never need any more. I'm still using Elements 3.0.
On my computer at present I have installed Photoshop CS2, Photoshop Elements 5 and PaintShop Pro 10.
I own many previous versions of Photshop, all the versions of Photoshop Elements upto ver. 5. I have also owned every version of PaintShop Pro since its shareware days, I have stopped at version 10 and unsure about updating it further as they are all getting to be copies of each other. Sadly some are loosing their roots and focusing solely on 'Camera'. PSP used to come with Animation Shop but stopped at around vers 8/9 so I had to extract it from one of my earlier versions. Elements is great for my family and my wife has found it easy and lots of uses in card making and scrapbooking with her digital pics. I use Photoshop CS2 or Paintshop Pro ver 10. I find the design and drawing much quicker with PSP but to choose between the two ? ... In a hurry I open PSP as it is faster to use and STILL has the best, quickest and easiest straightening tool for vertical and horizons. On the whole, as someone who uses different types regularly, they are all the same it just depends on you on the day but I suppose I have a bias slightly towards PSP. Hope this does not confuse the issue even more, reards D
Lightroom seems to be the most convenient and efficient tool for digital photo. It's even better than Canon's great tools.
