I’ve been having a good time with my new Canon Rebel XSi camera lately and have come to appreciate the wonders of digital postprocessing. Adjusting colors, brightness, sharpness and so on can really make an otherwise ordinary photograph pop. While $600 Adobe Photoshop CS4 is the favored tool of graphic artists, I’ve learned that just about everything that a digital photographer needs is in the much cheaper Photoshop Elements.
Amazon has the best deal on Adobe Photoshop Elements 7 I’ve seen. It’s $59.99 after a rebate.
