I am in week two of my photography class at BetterPhoto.com and today I bought a tutorial book on Photoshop Elements 7 to get better acquainted with the program. I bought a copy of PE7 on a friends recommendation and as soon as a installed the program and clicked around the full editor interface for about two seconds, my head exploded. That program is jam PACKED with tools to tweak anything and everything, a guide through this abyss of photographic freedom is absolutely essential. I am looking forward to using this program to it's full potential.
Just for example, look at my instant magic wand! (called "healing brush" in PE7)
Yes, tragic I know, Zits on the Wedding Day. I broke out two days before. Don't feel badly, I was too deliriously happy to care, but take a look at THIS!
