I saw a few little OSX screenshots (probably old stuff they got from somewhere else) and all the rest where Vista.

Kind of funny, but am I the only one that thinks the final image looks worse then the starting one for the "Remove Flash Spots" bit?

Tip number 3:
Use Level Adjustments and Color Correction to bring an photo to life

 An photo? An hero? An computer? An elephant? Ahh, there we go.... 

great article though!

In recent versions, Photoshop Elements has been revved up so it can perform almost all of the tips in this article. You will need to use a different selection tool for cutting out an object (such as magnetic lasso) and PSE lacks Actions,, but other stuff like adjustment layers (kudos for mentioning this) are in both PSE and its full-powered sibling. In PSE, you can use the File menu's option to process multiple photos to perform resizing or conversion to other formats.

BTW, if you use multiple adjustment layers, you can really change how the finished photo works by changing layer order.

BTW #2: if you want to print your newly-improved creations at a photofinishing kiosk or online printing service, stick with maximum-quality JPEG; these services usually don't understand other formats.

Thanks for the article!

It's amazing how illogical a business built on binary logic can be.

"Create an Action Script to resize a large batch of photos"

 

 

is there a way to do this with the GIMP?

This seems like great tips except I use The GIMP not Photoshop.

Have you ever heard of Gimp Shop? It's supposed to be TheGimp but with all the looks and feel of Photoshop and I have heard that it also has the same functionality so that if you really know photoshop then GimpShop will be second nature. So I would assume all these features will work but I don't know as I use neither. I just push the button on my camera and hope for the best.

I always did things the hard way in photoshop. I always meant to look up some tutorials to learn some useful tricks but never found the time or was too intimidated. These are neat little things to do.

Anyone knows of a good site with such tutorials that I can check out?

 

Thanks
