Thanks for the feedback and instructions. PP is a tough area these
days - i've loaded Lightroom, but think I need either more RAM or a
faster processor to run it. I have Adobe PS Elements, the original,
but didn't like the interface of PS 4 (or was it 5?). At this point,
I'm just mucking around in Picasa.
I'm going to try your suggestions in Picasa and see what I get. If
Godfrey runs his class again, I might try it.
