And then I came home and glued myself to the computer, trying out all the buttons and boxes in Element. I worked on 3 photos, one with a hard colour adjustment, one noisy squirrel, and one easy crop-and-sharpen job. The squirrel photo proved hopeless, but here are the other two.
|Miniature harvestman. This had a distinct orange cast; Element took it out nicely. The background colour now matches the original piece of wood.|
|An older photo; the sky reflected in a corner beside the Ladner docks.|
I used auto-adjust on the reflections photo. This almost never works in Picasa or Picnik, but with Element it did, at least on this photo. I don't like their sharpening tool, though; it's too small to control properly.
