Digital Photography Software Instructional Videos

Often Photo Safari's end before we can discuss photo editing, so these videos are to help Yellow Wood Guiding Clients expand their knowledge of digital photo editing software. The Basic Editing videos will carry over to many different editing programs including Photoshop Elements, iPhoto, Picasa, Gimp, or Infranview. The Advanced Editing videos apply to Adobe Photoshop.

The Photographer's Ephemeris Software is a great program for planning photographic trips, determining sunrise, sunset, and the direction of the sun, moon, and everything in between. Download it by clicking the link above.
