Never having heard of G-star, thought G-star RAW was some kind of special file...but no
NickR: The Euros doth protest too much.
We presumably don't understand. They must have researched the market and found a need for pig ugly and overpriced.
Focus_Point: Take good photos in camera for minimum fixes, and use Picasa (free from Google) to play with the colors, contrast and brightness... and I think there are other good and cheap applications for your layering and HDRs out there.
Faststone still suits me and keeps getting better.http://www.faststone.org/FSViewerDetail.htmPete
sh10453: Part 1
In my humble opinion, Corel's Paintshop Pro X4 is far better than Adobe's Photoshop.
It costs less than $100, regular price. I have also seen it advertised by different sellers for less than $60. Right now it is on sale (Black Friday) for less than $30.00 at Corel's site!
Upgrades are usually $30 to $40.
I have used Paintshop Pro since its inception, in the DOS days, long before Corel acquired JASC, and it remains my favorite package (and I have tried more than a dozen different programs).
I have tested every version of Adobe's Photoshop, from the first one to CS5, and came out with the same result every time, which is ..... I hated it.
Corel has 30 days trial policy, so you may want to check that out, if you are sick of paying $699 for a graphics package.

DuckShots: Well written, informative and inspiring. Building the scene. Have to learn this. Need to know so much to produce creative works. Not my look, but that's the point. I need a look. Sadly, every time I see what others do, I want to throw my lens into a fire and take up reading. Maybe not this time. Thank you very much.
I kept waiting for the actual shots after all the overexposed phone cam snaps in the car. Was shocked to see they were the photos !
