Racing Around The Learning Curves
years ago I was editing pictures with contrast, brightness, and
saturation. Now I can’t even begin to make a complete list of all the
various processing tools I use on a daily basis to get the results I

enough rambling. I just happen to notice that in the past few weeks I
keep discovering more useful tools in the photography applications that I
use. What a marvelous time to be here and have an affinity for
photography and graphics.
