I was asked at work to run a course on digital manipulation. I said "I don't know anything about digital manipulation" They said "You'd better learn then" So go easy.

It works for me. Especially the sunbeams.
"How to Cheat in Photoshop" is a book you might find useful.

Deep and dark as Tyne waters
Flowing through the night
Bright as a corn field
In the early mroning light
Soft as the breeze from butterflies wings
My northern angel sings.

Like that Angel of the North
Your arms ever open wide
When I'm driving down this motorway
You are always by my side
And you stand so tall
Hard as steel
Tempered in the wind and rain
You're my Angel of the North
I can't wait to see you again.
Angel of the North - Enda Kenny

Johanna
