Thats a fine piece of editing on the tui lostone. Smiley considering it would have been in jpeg.

Does anyone know if there is a night class or something that can teach dummies how to use photoshop? Undecided

This is a pic I took last year. It is the only bush photo I have got where the flash wasnt needed.
I do have the same pic where the flash went off so I will try and find that to compare.


Found the other pic.

Firstly it might be helpful to understand a bit about Photoshop itself.
Contrary to popular belief Photoshop is not just a computer based, image editing program.
Photoshop is a community.
Photoshop is made up by a group of maniacal, photographic, evangelists, each contributor working independently on their pet project regarding a specific attribute of digital editing process.
Every couple of years all the contributors throw their new and improved tools at the project manager and it is his job to implement all these changes into the latest version of Photoshop.
The most important tools to learn in Photoshop is the curves tool, levels tool and how to use the smart sharpen tool.
Then perhaps the hue and saturation tools .
All of these tools rely on you understanding how a mask works along with layers.
Once you have a basic understanding of how these tools work together your up and laughing.

PS by the way mick that is a great photo mate I love the way the light gives the photo real depth and character.

PPS Luckly I cant remeber what I did to your photo last night I was getting very tired Grin(drunk)

The best tuts I have found are on the radiant vista site under video tuts.

The most important video is the five essential adjustment layers.
This will show how many of the tools I have mentioned work together to improve you photos.
Here it the url.
http://www.radiantvista.com/video_tutorials/page4/
all of the tuts on this site are first class but this tut is the best place to start.


My man deke is the DUDE, he can be visited on this page.
http://movielibrary.lynda.com/html/modPage.asp?ID=327

Although he is dealing with the latest beta version of Photoshop (which can be downloaded for free from adobe) you will see in the menu on the left videos that deal with other versions of Photoshop.
Ignore thse amazing free recourses at your own peril.

If anyone has access to any better site than these two please let me know?

Mick,

That first picture with the available light is much better than the flash one...Still, it does make the point that unless you *really* know what your doing, its best to take with and without the flash so you have the choice afterwards..

Regards,

Pete

can't remember where but i saw a guy who had fitted a small threaded rod to the pommel of his knife so he could use it as a stand for his camera to save having to carry a tripod or anything extra
