how do i go about finding out what software i need to use. i see there is adobe elements photoshop-7 and so on so how do i know which to use. what isthe difference in them
You can see comparisons of features on the Adobe web site. But if you're a beginner asking, you shouldn't be looking at full Photoshop because it cost over $600. Instead look at Elements 4 which can be found for under $100. Elements 2 comes free with a lot of scanners, digital cameras and printers. It may have less of the newer features than Elements 4, but it'll get you started. Plus there are more than a few online forums (including Adobe's own forums) and resources for any Adobe program you decide on.
yes i'm a beginner. so thanks for the advice. i'll look at adobe site and forums. thanks
