    I'm sure it does. Maybe down the track. For now, though, I'd rather
    perfect my camera techniques rather than my editing techniques.

    Why is wanting to learn more about my new camera and develop my
    photographic techniques sad? Seems a bit of an odd thing to say.

    Well grasshopper it is too early for you, you must go out into the
    wilderness for a year and print only what you shoot, only then will you
    learn the truth..........

    Ummmm, you are printing your shots I am assuming of course because there
    would be little point taking even one shot if you didn't print at least some

    No, I was planning to take my camera with me overseas and delete each
    photo after I took it. What a stupid question. You're obviously

    Actually I was trying to give you a little advice that a little PPing can go
    a long way and that the colour you get straight from the camera is probably
    not perfect but it seems you have all the experience and all the answers and
    therefore have no need to be here any longer, have a nice life. FFS two
    fucj=king days ago you asked what camera you should buy, maybe you trolling
    dropkick. Cheers.

    Bored now, bye.

  7. The newbie just wants to learn more about his new camera before progressing to photoshopping. There's nothing wrong with that. Stop trolling him.

    Yep, that's correct. Why do some people find that so hard to understand? Anyhow, I'll post some pics once I arrive in the Azores in a coupla weeks.

  9. I think what Pete was trying to allude to, is what many of us have
    discovered... Back in the good ole days, I was endlessly frustrated
    by the way in which my images were printed (aka ruined) by labs, from
    one-hour thru professional. Why couldn't they get it right first
    time, I innocently thought...

    Then I discovered the immense control afforded by digital imaging - if
    nothing else, the ability to fine tune colors and manipulate the 'tone
    curve' of an image just blew me away when i first saw what could be
    done, back in the late 80's when PC's started to get useful in this

    So if digital imaging is all new to you, it's worth doing a bit of
    research, or better yet, get someone who is familiar with image
    editing to give you a run through on what can be done with an image
    editor like Photoshop. You might get converted. And don't throw away
    any 'failed' images, until you understand what can and can't be done.

    No worries. As I mentioned in an earlier post, I aim to go down that track
    in the future. For now, however, I just want to take average holiday snaps
    that I can view on my PC and email to family and friends. as I get into it
    more then I'll check out these software editing packages and give 'em a go.
