  1. Aha!!! I have the perfect one and I even have it in my library. BRB! (I have been suffering Picasa Hell, trying to get pictures to post to my blog, but I can manage this one, perhaps…

        1. I think I looked at it and thought it was too complicated for ME too. I stick with what I know and which does the job. I probably understand less than 5% of Photoshop’s capabilities, but I can do what I need to do. I have some filter sets that do other stuff and since I’m not big on over-processing, there’s a lot of stuff I don’t need.
