    jimscott,
    I used microsoft digital image 2006. Photoshop is way to expensive!
    the colored ones I used a tool called 'change hue'. the last 3 I had to blacken the background, use a automatic selection 'magic wand' to select just the ping, then use the change hue tool.
    the 1st 2 I used filters.
    This is my 1st time using the program and I am just playing with all the tools to figure out what they do.
    I might try some nep pics next

    It is hard to always be a human being... people get in the way.

    Photoshop is great for this kinda stuff, it can be pricey (I think CS4 the latest version is $700), thus I'm still using PS7 about an 8 years old version (back when it was only $500). They have something called Photoshop Elements (about $90) which has most of the crazy filters and color adjustments, just not all of the more high end Photo editing and digital painting tools.

    One thing I really dislike though is when plant and gardening catalogs use Photoshop to make their plants / flowers appear to have these better, more interesting colors using the hue / saturation shift options. To me it's false advertising when it's in a catalog - not when done just for fun like above.

    These would make cool Bday / Xmas cards for CPers!
