Now you’ve mastered downloading the snaps of your grandchildren, how do you make the most of them?
If you’re just looking to make a few changes then Microsoft Picture Manager, which is on most people’s PCs, is adequate but what if you’re looking for something a bit more sophisticated? The technology revolution has spawned many amazing computer programs and, when it comes to having fun and managing images, there is no doubt that Adobe Photoshop is a great addition for those wishing to have fun with photos.
Fifteen years ago, when cameras needed film, it seemed unthinkable that we would be able to take hundreds of photos, only having to download them now and again. But, as digital cameras became one of the most popular items in our homes, the associated software wasn’t far behind and Adobe Photoshop was created. This revolutionary program allows you to edit/change/crop/brighten/darken and manipulate your digital photographs.
In layman’s terms, Photoshop is Microsoft Paint on steroids. Instead of just ‘painting things’, the program has a number of features, image editing software and amazing video design techniques.
Photoshop does, however, come at a significant cost. As it is such a good program, it is worth considering the investment if you are serious about photography. Happily, the people at Adobe are offering you a 30-day FREE trial. To sign up, simply visit Adobe.

From there, you will have to create an Adobe account. This is relatively simple and takes up to five minutes. The only information you need to enter is your email address and postcode.
Once this is completed, you will be taken to the “Download” screen. Simply choose your preferred language and the platform you are using (Windows or MAC) in the drop-down box and click “Download”. Viola! You will be transported headfirst into the exciting world of photo editing.
Some extra of Adobe Photoshop are the amazing vanishing point feature, an image editing tool, which has to be seen to be believed, and the one-click red-eye reduction toggle, which is essential for removing those annoying red eyes that have the propensity to ruin your favourite snaps.
