I had a prehistoric version of Elements and I've just now moved to PSE 9.

In terms of what it can do to your photos it's unchanged. The interface seems a lot cleaner and marking up in terms of keywords is easier. I've not noticed any other differences.

thanks ginge

you've saved me some bother and some dough

I owe you a beer.

do you think there is any other software that you think I might find useful?

After much less prevarication I've 'invested' in a Nissin Di622 (Mark II) flash ... much off camera flash-based madness to follow no doubt ...

Here's attempt #1 from this morning ...

On our latest trip to Greece to Parga we did the River Achelon walk (and swim). The River Achelon is also known as The River Styx which is the river where the mythological ferryman delivered the dead to the underworld, payment to to the ferryman was by placing a coin under the tongue of the corpse. It is also the River in which Achilees was dipped to protect him and make him immortal, but of course he was held by the heal and this wasn't dipped into the magical waters and thus became his weak spot.

The river walk starts in ankle deep crystal clear water, this is where you first find out how cold it is, at 13 deg C, the air temperatureis around 32 deg C. You walk up the river and in some parts you have to swim. Eventually the river narrows considerably and current is very fast and the only way up is to swim. At this point only the strongest swimmers make it, proud to say there were four Wiganers on the trip and all four made it, about half of the people who managed it.

The Dunns River Falls walk, in Jamaica, is usually held around midday, and the water is ice cold, swirling, various depths, and is blooming lovely.

The cars out of focus and that bloody kid got its head in the way.

Only joking, good start.

Pedantic? Moi? Heel, Achilles.

Love the pictures though
