    Tutorials for Photo Editing

    Until I can figure out how to make this a stickie, I'll just start a new thread for anyone who wants to post hints or tutorials to make our photos better.

    So be strong and courageous! Do not be afraid and do not panic before them. For the Lord your God will personally go ahead of you. He will neither fail you nor abandon you.

    For those who would like to experiment with image-editing software, but don't want to pay a fortune for Adobe products: Introduction to GIMP; Download: GIMP 2.6.10

    GIMP is free, and designed to run under Linux, but can be installed on Windows machines with the proper binary installer (follow link on download page). It's easily comparable to PhotoShop, and has great support from the user community. Many people have tutorials and examples online.

    I use GIMP for all my photo editing needs; I particularly like the easy manipulation of contrast, curves, and color balance. Great for assembling more creative images, too.

    I've never tried GIMP, Roger. Is it user friendly? Meaning, can a dunce like me use it easily?

    Mo, I think you're far from being a dunce.

    There is a bit of a learning curve to GIMP, but the online user guide and links to tutorials are really helpful. The nice thing is that if you really get in over your head, you can simply undo changes or revert to the original image. You won't do any harm by simply diving in and playing with it.

    I think it's more user-friendly than Adobe products, but some things cannot be done with one simple keystroke. For instance, if you want to convert a photograph to a line drawing, you'll need to go through several steps.[an illustrated tutorial is available walk you through the steps].

    There are some very neat one-step changes, though. One of my favorites is 'oilify', whereby you can make a photograph appear to be a painting. This can run the gamut from very realistic to very abstract, simply by moving a couple of fader bars. Great for portraits and landscapes.
