In each of these editing challenges I name at the bottom of the "after" shot what I did to the picture. The reason I don't give a long detailed tutorial about how is that I use, on a day to day, basis a really simple easy to use software that is free to download thanks to Google, called Picasa. I didn't even think about the fact I never featured Picasa on my blog or gave you a link to download it for yourself, which is a shame because so often I run into people who think they need to have a mac for iPhoto to do neat things with their photos but it is so not true! So thank you Betty Manousos@ Cut and Dry for bringing that to my attention!
So if you are interested in trying out this awesome and free software check it out here.
