I've taken a picture.... now what?? <----- The alternative title of this post. :-)
We've all seen these pictures of gorgeous people or scenes in magazines and your first thought is... ha... I bet that was airbrushed! Our ultimate goal is NOT to need to retouch photos, but to take fab photos right off the bat. However, there is a place for photo editing software!
I don't know if you know this but Adobe CS4 Photoshop (the full version) costs like $900 bucks or something.... not within reach of your average picture junkie. BUT there are alternatives... and good ones!
I suggest, if you would like to try your hand at some image manipulation (beyond red-eye fix and brightness correction), go for either Corel Paint Shop Pro Photo X2 (less than $100 (this is an AWESOME program... the no-name brand of Photoshop), or Adobe Photoshop Elements (under $200... the scaled down but still more than enough version of Photoshop).
I say if you like it, go for it. If not, don't bother...
For some fun... can you tell which photos below I've touched up and what I've done to them?
