Thanks to digital cameras, it takes almost no time to fill up your computer with photos of vacations, special events, food, or just any random thing you happen to see. It's also simple to share those photos online or print them out for a photo album or scrap book.
Hang on just a second, though. Just because digital cameras make it easy to snap pictures doesn't mean they're ready for sharing as-is. You might want to do some work on them first with a photo editor to improve the color, crop out something you didn't intend to catch, remove red-eye, or hundreds of other fixes. But if you aren't familiar with photo editing, how do you know where to start?
We have an Essential Guide to Creative Photo Editing that gives you information to get started and excel at making your photos shine. And thanks to our sponsor Epson, we are giving it away for free until 11:59 p.m. on Thursday, April 21. That's a $7.95 value; download it now.
If you get into your photo editing and realize that your pictures aren't that good to begin with, consider picking up our Essential Guide to Taking Great Photos. It will help you master getting great photos at the beginning so there's less to edit.
Photo editing isn't the final step, however. If you're thinking of printing your work, you need a good printer. Right now, we're giving away an Epson WorkForce EcoTank printer. Not only does it have excellent print quality, it comes with two years of ink in the box. Sign up now for your chance to win this fantastic printer.
