I have 'progressed' from PH5 to CS5. without much actual progress. I guess I'm an advanced intermediate with issues- fear of layers. I can produce reasonable prints, which is what my desired end product is, but I waste a lot of time getting there.
I have a s---load of books (Martin Evening, Ctein, Eismann, 'for Dummies,' etc. I took a local course, CYBERLENS J Woods and J Lyon (2004). I tried some Adobe products- too much graphic arts, not really for photographers.
I have been OK with limited photo repair- I'm a reasonably good cloner. I really needed to do a composting 'job' for my son's wedding and everything was an involved 'work-around.' I would like to learn some HDR, but not to create Rockwell paintings!
LAYERS, LAYERS, LAYERS; I do everything on duplicate copies as I can't deal with layers. Also I need help in setting up Lightroom 3, to catalog and then do my 'global' adjustments. I store back-ups in my office and need to back up the catalog
I used to print B&W, since the 60's, then. slides (Cibachrome and Ektaflex) in the 80's. My computer-animating son set me up with Photoshop 10 years ago, and I bought my first digital SLR in 2004- I can clone, heal and do levels but fear layers!HELP
