This image is being uploaded to demonstrate some of the new features in GOOGLE'S PICASA. Many of us can afford and have many GREAT Image Prep softwares, however I recall in the not too distant past - that it was necessary to rely upon "Free" or "Shareware." Picasa 3 Beta is NOW available for download from GOOGLE. This program goes a few steps further in post shoot processing than Version 2. A reliable retouching tool with sizeable brushes, and text insertion in a full range of compatible PC color and fonts. This image and information is offered to help those "Starting Up," in digital imaging. You can get your feet wet here, at little to no cost, if you like the challenges, then set your sights to upgrading your software requirements as you develop your skill. Hope this has been helpful
