Before Christmas I bought Photoshop Elements, but I haven't taken the time to sit down with it and figure it out. It is very overwhelming to me. I think I need someone who is familiar with it to give me lessons or something. I'm not sure that this is the kind if thing I can learn just by messing around with it. I tried to work with it tonight to fix this picutre--that one little section of the dress is overexposed, and I am very annoyed by it, but I couldn't figure out how to fix it. I just ended up feeling very angry and frustrated. So I am reluctantly posting this picture and wishing I could have fixed it, or wishing I had noticed the problem at the time and tried to fix it by adjusting my camera settings.

On a different note, I only have about two months left in my year of daily shooting and posting. I think I've learned almost all I'm going to learn with this particular project, but I have an idea for what I will do next, that I think will help me move beyond the plateau I seem to have landed on. I'll let you know sometime in the coming months what that is...

Hi Mindy -- Unfortunately, blown-out highlights are the one thing that's just about impossible to fix, even with the full version of Photoshop. You should check out Scott Kelby's book on Photoshop Elements. -- Dad
