Hi
Back to weather forecasting, rain and more rain and more rain but when I return to ET on the 1st, the sun will shine.

Today I started reading the elements photoshop for dummies ... I am a mere beginner with this software and struggle to pick up some aspects of it, however the book is very good at leading you through the stages and teaching you the amazing things that particular software can do.

I believe that software is a vital part to your digital expierence, the errors that it can sort out the images it can create and the enhancement to your original images. All grand things and so much to learn.

Similarly I am desperate to get back out walking in the local parks and hills, taking images and relaxing. I am also now as we approach the turn of the year already counting down the time till we head North once again for a week ..... Already so many plans , a day in the South West and maybe manage to meet friends and spend a day capturing images from Galloway, a day with Alex and some fun around West Central Scotland and a social pint with a new friend Al who helped me so much recently. Add in the locations we want to revisit and it is going to be such a tight schedule, of course IF the lotto come in before then ..... Smile

Till Next Time

I've been lucky, I didn't have to read a book - I have children!! Smile They were taught it at school, so they came home and taught me (I got them believing this was to prove they'd being paying attention!). They are still way ahead of me though...............perhaps I ought to get a copy of that book after all!!! Wink

P.S. EPZ have some helpful 'Techniques', well worth visiting! Smile (They can be found under 'HOME' and 'VIDEOS')

Hi Karen

My kids .... gave them both good quality cameras and have to beg for a decent photograph of the grandkids lol ... image software is something they do not even know exists.

I have utilised EPZ and all the help it can offer, added to the galleries and forum this IS a grand site !

Have a great Hogmanay and wonderful Ne'erday

Ah, that is where I am going wrong.
Now, how do I get children ? Wink

If you are just learning Elements what have you been using to process / print the images for your market stall ?

Prior to getting into elements I have been and still do use Nikon Capture NX2, it is a grand programme for the basics .... My A4 images I have been printing myself and the A3 have been done by Nickyv32 and what a grand job she does of them.
