I used to link all my shots from my flickr account but they quit giving the code to do it. Trying another way.

Hey, that worked + I see that the picture works as a link back to the flickr page. I've been using photobucket but I've got a lot more stuff stored on flickr.

Try another from yesterday evening.

Thanks, GH. Speaking of, how are things running with your photography?

I've been slacking! Haven't had time to go out. One of my 'projects' I'd like to do is country mailboxes.

I see them on the way to work, but am too tired to stop 50 times on the way home to shoot them.

GH, below is a print screen of PS CS5 on my computer showing a picture open and the 2 tools I told you about in the PM. The unsharp mask is also in the filters menu, as a dropdown through the "sharpen" option. Which version of Elements do you use?

On this shot, which I'll show full sized below, I also used a software version of a graduated neutral density filter to tone down the sky and bring out the colors. I'm pretty sure this tool is available to you if you shoot RAW files. They will open in Adobe Camera RAW and that's where you will find that tool. 3rd & 4th picts below, similar techniques to bring out good color saturation.

Edit: just noticed something, the focus on the shots looks soft as displayed here. The originals are not at all soft. The 1st 4 shots are linked from Photobucket. I'm going to link the same shot as #4 from flickr and see if it is still soft. The flickr link is sharper than the photobucket one, and larger too, but not nearly as sharp as the original. Guess it is a result of the compression algorithms they use.
