Moving on from Colins edits for me within the been birding today section, I have been having a play around with some editing software. Having only dpp and jasc paintshop pro 9, i took a look on google to look for another programme which might be better, I downloaded a programme called Photoscape, which seems fairly good (it was ranked rather high) One thing I do like about this piece of software over others is the fact that you have an "elements style" quality slider which is great news.
So onto what I did, converted the file from raw in dpp and then edited in photoscape altering contrast, sharpness and brightness. Then saved at 100% quality.
Also used clone stamp to get rid of dust bunnies on my sensor as colin called them. Hopefully it looks ok. Opinions please.
