Re: Special Photo Competition !!

The usual software for this is Photoshop which is very good but very expensive

95% of teh same functionality is available from The GIMP which is totally free!!!!

Re: Special Photo Competition !!

My problem is that when I play about with a photo I tend to forget what it is I've done. I just fiddle and tweak until I get something I like.

Re: Special Photo Competition !!

Well I’ve added my bit. It’s one that I did ages ago and I think it was Serif Photo plus that I used to edit the photo.

Here is another one that I did while I was playing about. I’ll not enter it into the comp as we are only allowed to have one entry. I’ll post it here as it might give you some ideas.
