Digital cameras have serious flaws - they
see what is there, not what the photographer sees in imagination and they
can not read the photographer's mind. Professional and prosumer cameras
offer the experienced shooter a lot of control, but overwhelm the snap
shooter with arcane detail.
No longer does the point-and-shoot snapper have the
one-hour lab with its breathtakingly expensive print machine and trained
operator to save their misdeeds. With digital, photography has reverted to
early times when photographers had to do their own processing.
This tutorial is based upon Photoshop, but Paint Shop Pro
has tools that work in a similar fashion. Mac users will need to check their
documentation for keyboard commands, since my last Mac is now nonfunctional.
