Hi Japokskee,

The thread is entitled Photoshop 7 which is fair enough as we are in the Imaging Software forum. I'm not sure what the observation or the question is though. :?

Were there some particular manipulations that you did, or wanted to do, that you are sharing with us?

Bob.

Firstly what effects were you trying to achieve through photoshop, how do you feel you did/did not succeed, and what advice would you like to get specifically?

I was going to suggest, you might like to try bouncing the flash off the ceiling, you just tilt the flash head so that the light hits the ceiling, it gives a softer light :)

Hi Japokskee,

No offence, but it looks like you are using way too much contrast in your photos.

This sharpens the image too much and making them look too flat because all the highlights are now white.

I rarely use the Brightness/Contrast control and instead I use the mid-tone levels to control how bright the picture looks.

I also only use a slight amount of saturation (+10 to +15 at the most) in the Hue/Saturation/Lightness control box; I don't use lightness at all.

Hope this helps....
