    I had lots of fun with my pictures on plain old Microsoft Word. You can do so many borders and colors. Photoshop is very daunting. Maybe I will take a break and try it again next week.

    What are you trying to do with it? Perhaps I can help a bit, I use it a bit at work and I play around with it at home.

    I am trying to make a "fake" wine bottle label. They are fabulous gifts for the people who have everything. You take a picture of them on their horse, or their dog or something, make it look like a label and glue it on some of their favorite wine. So I would want to take, for example, the picture in my avatar, lighten it up a little in the shadows, that has me stumped right there. Then make the photo approximately 2 1/2" by 3". Then make a pencil thin border in one color, a border in another color that is 1/4 " all around but 3/4" on top and bottom where I would put some writing, then a pencil thin border around all that. The writing would be in different fonts and different colors on the label. I would say "Best End Vineyards" "2003 Pinot Grigio" "Located in Horse Butte, Montana" Because there is a Butte, Montana, I usually try and make the labels funny in some way. Should be doable right?

    Okay, I gave up on the labels. Microsoft word is perfect for those. Made a couple for gifts that turned out perfect. Now, I am trying to fix a photo, finally made some progress there, fixed some blemishes. I should be happy I figured something out. But no, I am sooo frustrated by what I can't do. I want to put a teal green border on a pic and upload it to Costco. I cannot figure out how to put a simple colored border on a photo. And it will only let me upload to Kodak or Shutterfly. That is absurd. I don't like the prices on Shutterfly. I have always used Costco or Snapfish. I love Snapfish and don't want to switch. Sigh, any suggestions?

    I very rarely edit my photos, but I do own every single editing program on the market. Half my family is into programing so I have all of them on hand.

    But my main question to you...what computer system are you using? Apple or PC?

    PC. It took me 1/2 a day but I did make some progress.
