Default Need a little work done...

Hey gang,


I have a shot here that a friend really likes, but alas I had some sensor dust show up! I uploaded the file HERE if anyone cares to have a look and play around with it! Thanks!

Not to be rude or anything, but why don't you do it yourself?

All I can see is two spots of dust on the top flower, and it'll take me longer to download the pic, import it into PS & re-upload it than the two clicks of the heal tool needed to clone those spots out.

If this were a panning pic, I could see why you would want some help. I got some major dust spots on some horse racing pix, and those are a B**** to heal out! But this is easy, everyday stuff.

Just don't have photoshop or any software that would clone out those spots.

Better keep the sensor squeaky clean then. Why not get Photoshop Elements 7--it's got lots of the same things as PSCS4 at a small fraction of the price?

I did a quick edit using the patch, healing and clone tools--like Daredevil said, quick and easy to do with the right tools.

OK thanks Barbara...I am going to see if I can fix this on the photoshop.com site actually. It causes a big dip in resolution to do that, and she wants a 16x20 I think,...so it might work out. Thanks!

I'm still using Photoshop Elements 5. Most earlier versions would handle such problems alsmost as well, and be cheaper if you can find them.

I cloned it for you. Do you have an email I can send it to? Thanks!

Sorry, didn't realize you didn't have any editing software. Hope you didn't take my post the wrong way.

Honestly, if you want to get the most out of your digital photos, you really should get an editing program, such as Photoshop Elements. That is pretty easy to learn, and has a light footprint on your wallet.

I agree with Daredevil. Making the photo in camera is only half the job. The rest is in the wet darkroom or the digital lightroom.

I have an old copy of Photoshop CS I could send to you. Since we've moved onto CS4, I don't have a need for the CS version. It is an educational version and is upgradable to the full version. I should probably read the licensing agreement but I assume I can sell it or give it away, at my discretion since it is unused (by me) now.

Any body know the legal implications?

Not sure about the legalese, Fred...but that's very kind of you. Thanks for the offer.

I know it seems a bit frustrating to you guys...hey you're right: The work done in the camera is and always has been half the battle. Daredevil: nah, don't worry about it.

I bought this PC about 8 years ago, it was fast back then. Not fast to today's standards. Wouldn't run a high caliber program like photoshop. I'm still in the age of sinking all the dough into the gear. And this economy isn't making it any easier. The good news is that I set up a Zenfolio gallery (partners with MPix) so I can hopefully sell some prints to neighbors/family/friends and work toward that goal. Gotta do whatcha can in these financial times!
